The Cap-8 Conference has released its all-conference teams in baseball, softball, boys lacrosse, girls lacrosse and girls soccer.

Each Cap-8 sport does their all-conference team a different way. Some have a first team and second team, while others just combine the lists into one. Some name a player or coach of the year and others do not.

Boys lacrosse names an assistant coach of the year, while baseball has a “newcomer of the year” category. Girls soccer did not do a player of the year, but Wakefield’s Kat McDonald was named state player of the year.

The six conference championship teams represented in the five lists are: Heritage and Wake Forest softball, Leesville Road baseball, Wakefield girls lacrosse, Broughton girls soccer and Leesville Road boys lacrosse.

Individuals honored as players of the year include: Leesville Road’s Jack Conley and Andrew Papp and Millbrook’s Alex Royalty in baseball; Leesville Road’s Davis Sampere and Graham Holmes and Enloe’s Tanner Hudson in boys lacrosse; Heritage’s Laura Williams and Jordan Gontram and Wakefield’s Erin Fox in softball.
