GAHS senior guard Caleb Henry landed on the honorable mention portion of the list for the Blue Devils, who finished fourth in the conference with an 9-5 record. This is Henry’s first All-OVC basketball honor.
For the Blue Angels, sophomore center Maddy Petro was named first team, while junior guard Junon Ohmura was selected as an honorable mention. It’s the first all-league basketball honor for either player, and GAHS was seventh in the OVC with a 2-12 record.
