Five Franklin County girls lacrosse players have earned Class 6 Region B honors for the 2018 season.

Of the quintet, Emma Barber, a rising senior at FCHS, is the Eagles’ lone first-team honoree as a midfielder.

As a first-team selection, Barber is eligible for Class 6 All-State accolades from the Virginia High School League (VHSL).

Selected to the second team from FCHS are Micaela Harvey (attack), Adrianna Hart (midfield) and defenders Chloe Newbill and Karmen Board.

FCHS finished the season with 11 victories and reached the semifinals of the regional playoffs; the Eagles fell to Colonial Forge in that round.

In each of the past three years, FCHS has reached the regional semifinals only to lose in that round with a Class 6 state tournament berth resting in the balance.

Also for the Eagles, eight players have been selected to the All-Area team: Harvey, Barber, Hart, Newbill and Board are first-team choices at their positions; Isabelle Davis is a second-team selection as a midfielder; and Kylee Wright (defense) and Shaianne Ermini (goalkeeper) are honorable mention.

Arianna Jimenez of Cosby is the Player of the Year and Nate Medic of Cosby is the Coach of the Year.

On the boys side, four-year standout Chris Bishop is a first-team honoree and is eligible for all-state accolades. No other FCHS players were honored.

FCHS won 10 matches this season and reached the semifinals of the Region B tournament. The Eagles lost to James River-Midlothian in that round in a match played at Ferrum College’s W.B. Adams Stadium.

Aidan Riley of James River Midlothian is the Player of the Year and Steve Gillis of Cosby is the Coach of the Year.
