Ten players from Franklin County's boys' varsity soccer team have earned All-Western Valley District accolades for the 2013 season.
Earning first-team honors are seniors David Sicher and Tyler Burgess and sophomore Currie Hanes.
As first-team honorees, Sicher, Burgess and Hanes are eligible for All-Northwest Region laurels.
Selected to the second team are sophomore Zach Clayborne, junior Michael Moorman and seniors Chris Bede and Conner Hardy.
Receiving honorable mention recognition are seniors Patrick Palum and Jordan Craighead and freshman Dylan Jones.
The Eagles finished the season with a 10-7-1 record and placed third in the WVD.
FCHS's 10 wins matched its victory total from 2012.
Also, the Eagles qualified for the Northwest Regionals where they were defeated by Commonwealth District runner-up Colonial Forge, 2-0, in the first-round.
This past season marks the first time in program history that FCHS's boys' soccer team has qualified for the regional tournament in consecutive years.
FCHS also played in the regional tournament in 1992, 1995, 1997 and 2001.
