The inaugural postseason honors for the revamped Southwest Conference — mostly old schools from the Spring River Valley Conference — have been released and top schools Pierce City and Miller dominated the awards with Pierce City sweeping the top honors of coach, offensive player, and defensive player of the year.

The Diamond Wildcats received several second team and honorable mention selections: offensive and defensive lineman Owen Gray and wide receiver Colby Housh (second team); running back Cameron Addington, linebacker Joey Hobbs, defensive back Housh, and defensive back Kolbe Jones (honorable mention).

The Wildcats finished 3-7 overall and 2-5 Southwest Conference.

In the regular season, Housh caught 33 passes for 315 yards and two scores and carried the football 30 times for 145 yards and one touchdown, and his contributions also included kickoff returns and two interceptions on defense. Housh caught 10 passes for 75 yards against Ash Grove, eight passes for 72 yards and one TD against Miller, and seven passes for 118 yards and one TD against Liberal, in games that were two of Diamond’s three wins (Ash Grove, Liberal).

Addington rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries over four games.

Pierce City head coach Brad Hocker, quarterback Colten O’Hara, and linebacker Trenton Kluck earned the conference’s top honors for the unbeaten Eagles, who are 10-0 overall entering their district semifinal game against Thayer.

Pierce City, Miller, Lockwood, and Sarcoxie are the schools remaining alive in district competition.
