More awards unveiled for fall athletes

With the fall sports seasons either finished or winding down, the Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference (KMAC), the Northern-10 Athletic Conference (N-10) and the Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference (MOAC) continue to release their lists of all-conference team members in their respective sports.

Both the KMAC and N-10 will release their football all-conference members once everyone’s season concludes as the MOAC has released first and second-team members on the gridiron for both offense and defense. Over in the KMAC, East Knox remains the only team still in title contention while the N-10 has both Seneca East and Carey in the mix. In the MOAC, both the Shelby Whippets and the Pleasant Spartans are still alive.
