ONTARIO — North central Ohio’s reputation as a girls soccer hotbed was confirmed again when the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association unveiled the All-Ohio teams.
Ontario’s Hattie Yugovich, Clear Fork’s Annika Labaki were selected to the OSSCA first-team in Division II, while Mapleton’s Brinlee Youngen was a first-teamer in Division III.
Ashland’s Claire Plank (Division I), Madison’s Neveah Lewis and Ontario’s Addie Pittman (Division II) and Crestview’s Gracie Dinsmore and Galion’s Mia Felder (Division III) were second-team picks.
