Switzerland County in Class 2A and Jac-Cen-Del in Class 1A each won Sectional championships.
The All Sectional team for the Class 2A Sectional held at South Ripley has been released, and the Sectional champion Switzerland County Pacers landed three team members on the prestigious squad.
Seniors Trevor Smith and Alex Curran were joined by junior Austin Clark on the team, which consisted of 10 players.
Runner up North Decatur had two players on the team, John Hammersmith and Jason Kirchhoff, and John Hammersmith earned the honor of being named the Sectional's Most Valuable Player - even though his team didn't win the title.
