  • Crotts, Webb lead all-Southwest voting

     It’s always quite an honor to be named a district player of the year. When the award goes to a player not on a district championship team, it only carries a little more weight.

    Adam Crotts and Lucas Webb didn’t win a championship in 2010. They certainly earned their district’s respect.

    Crotts was named the Southwest District’s player of the year in baseball while Webb picked up the honor in boys’ soccer in balloting by the district’s coaches recently.

    Galax took top honors in both boys’ and girls’ soccer and Grayson County had the top softball player. Fort Chiswell was the only other school to crack the player of the year list, earning top honors in baseball after ending Grayson County’s 18-year run of district championships.
