POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — A pair of Lady Knights were selected to the Class AA-A all-state first team, ending a two-year drought for the PPHS girls.
Point Pleasant — which went 8-5-3 this season — was represented on first team by junior midfielder Kady Hughes and senior defender Kira Henderson, both first-time all-state honorees.
Hughes put in 16 goals this season, the team leader, while coming up with eight assists, second most on the squad.
Henderson — the team captain — anchored a PPHS defense that shut out 10 opponents this fall.
The Coach of the Year award in Class AA-A went to Williamstown’s Ben Rinehart. Player of the Year was awarded to Winfield’s Ava Hall, with Forward of the Year going to Charleston Catholic’s Lindsay Carr, Midfielder of the Year going to Philip Barbour’s Audrey Williams, Defender of the Year going to Charleston Catholic’s Audrey Miller, and Goalkeeper of the Year going to Poca’s Devin Ord.
