CENTENARY, Ohio — Nothing dirty about this dozen.

Gallia Academy had a total of 12 people named to the 2021 All-Ohio Valley Conference golf teams, which were based on the final results from each championship match between the boys and girls competing this fall.

Both the Blue Devils and the Blue Angels captured league titles this season, which led to near-identical representation on the all-league squad as each program landed at least four first team honorees and a single honorable mention choice.

GAHS coach Mark Allen was also named the coach of the year for both boys and girls within the OVC.

Maddi Meadows, Abby Hammons, Emma Hammons, Addy Burke and Jordan Blaine were first team honorees in the girls division, with Meadows being named the OVC girls golfer of the year.

Kylee Cook of GAHS was also chosen to the girls honorable mention squad.

The Blue Devils were represented by Laith Hamid, Beau Johnson, Hunter Cook and William Hendrickson on the boys first team, and also had an honorable mention choice in Cody Bowman.

Landon Roberts of Fairland ended up winning the boys golfer of the year award.
