McDowell Titan tennis player Chris Boyette was named to the All-Northwestern 3A/4A Conference team in voting by the league’s coaches.
Boyette, a senior, was the top-seeded player for the Titans throughout the season, and becomes the second straight MHS player to make the All-NWC team. Cameron Crater made the team last season.
Boyette was joined on the all-conference team by Watauga’s Andrew Ganley and Calvin Huelsman; Hickory’s Austin Skoog, Costen Holtzman and Lewis Tate; South Caldwell’s Corey Kincaid, Andrew Mearns, Caleb Cook and Samuel Fisher; Alexander Central’s Carter Patterson and Cameron White; St. Stephens’ Zach Swisher and Charles Woy; Freedom’s Neftali Perez; and West Caldwell’s Isiah Denius.
Patterson was named Player of the Year. Hickory’s Jon Graham was voted Coach of the Year after leading the team to a second-place conference finish behind league champions South Caldwell.
The rest of the spring sports all-conference teams will be released when all schools are finished in the state playoffs.
