Lehman and Botkins took the top honors recently when the Western Ohio Soccer League announced its all-conference teams for the 2015 season.
Botkins head coach Kevin Lynch, who guided his Trojans to a league-best 6-1 mark, was named the Coach of the Year, and his high-scoring junior Kaleb Hanby was named the Player of the Year.
And in girls soccer, the same awards went to Lehman, with head coach Jeremy Lorenzo being named Coach of the Year, and senior standout Sarah Fuller the Player of the Year. Those two led the Lady Cavs to a perfect 6-0-0 record in the league and a second straight WOSL title.
