17 Eagles athletes recognized as All-Mid-State Conference

Eastern Alamance had a total of 17 athletes earn All-Mid-State Conference honors this fall in the sports of volleyball, women's golf, women's tennis, and men's and women's cross country. In addition, EAHS had two Mid-State Conference Players of the Year - Christin Dunn in women's tennis and Emily Mathews in women's golf - as well as Tom Booth, who was named Mid-State Conference Coach of the Year in women's tennis. 

Eastern Alamance High School was well represented on the Mid-State All-Conference teams for women’s tennis, women’s golf, volleyball, and cross country, as announced this past week by the league. 

In women’s tennis, the Eagles had all six of its top singles players - Christin Dunn, Emily Walsh, Rocio Rosa, Sarah Delario, Hannah Hawks, and Olivia Harris - earn All-Mid-State Conference honors. 

Dunn was named Mid-State Conference Player of the Year among the 22 All-Conference selections around the league, while EAHS head coach Tom Booth was named Coach of the Year. Eastern went undefeated in the regular season in 2019, earning the school’s first conference championship. 

In women’s golf, Eagles freshman Emily Mathews was named the Mid-State Conference Player of the Year. Mathews won the conference championship, and then went on to place second individually in the NCHSAA 3A state championships earlier this fall. Mathews was joined on the 11-player All-Mid-State Conference team by fellow Eagle Riley Beck. EAHS finished second in the Mid-State Conference this fall and qualified as a team for the NCHSAA 3A state finals. 

EAHS sophomore Kamari Mims earned a place on the All-Mid-State volleyball team, taking a place among 16 of the best players in the league. Person and McMichael, the top two teams in the Mid-State Conference this fall in volleyball, took eight of the 16 All-Conference spots. 

Eastern women’s cross country runners claimed six of the 15 spots on the All-Mid-State team, with Laila Anderson, Audrey Hupman, Logan Marine, Adrianna Glancy, Grace Dobson, and Anneke Brouwer all being recognized. Northern Guilford took seven of the All-Conference spots in women’s cross country. 

In men’s cross country, the Eagles were represented on the All-Mid-State team by Jahdiel Dinarte and Andrew Parker. Parker, along with Anderson in women’s cross country, qualified for the NCHSAA 3A state championship meet at the 3.1 mile track at the Ivey Redmon Complex in Kernersville. 

The Mid-State Conference has not yet announced its All-Conference selections for men’s soccer and varsity football, as those two sports are still active in the postseason.
