It was a big year for soccer in Logan County as two of the county’s three high schools schools — Chapmanville Regional and Logan — made history by fielding teams for the first time ever.
Six county players — five from Chapmanville and one from Logan — were honored with spots on the All-Cardinal Conference team.
Chapmanville’s Zach Lamb was named to the All-Conference First Team. Lamb, a sophomore, scored 17 goals and kicked out 13 assists. He had 68 tackles, 11 saves on goal and had 86 interceptions.
The Tigers’ Dylan Brown was named to the Second Team. Brown scored seven goals, had three assists and also had 38 tackles and 34 interceptions. He also had three saves on goal.
Austin Hanshaw, also of Chapmanville Regional, was voted Second-Team All-Conference as well. He scored six goals, had four assists and also made 45 tackles, 26 interceptions and 29 saves on goal.
Chapmanville goalie Ben Chapman was an Honorable Mention All-Conference pick. Chapman had 161 saves, four penalty kick saves and 21 corner kick saves.
The Tigers’ Amber Stokes was also an honorable mention all-conference selection. She had 96 ineterceptions and 22 tackles, to go along with her three goals, four assists and 26 saves on goal.
“Amber is the only girl that I know of being nominated to men’s division of the All-Cardinal Conference team. This will probably be the last as well since CRHS is forming a girls’ team next year,” Chapmanville coach Greg Dillon said.
Dino Noe, of Logan High School, was named as a First Team pick. He was the only Logan player nominated, Dillon said.
