A total of eight local individuals and a pair of relay teams made first-team honors on the boys side of track and field.
Eastern Greene's Gaven Hill was recognized for his record-breaking performance in the shot put (54-3 ½).

On the links, six of the seven first-team all-conference members hail from the area.
