The Wyoming Valley Conference had excellent representation on this year’s Pennsylvania High School Field Hockey Coaches Association’s all-state teams released earlier today.

State runner-up Valley West had the greatest representation with eight all-state selections in Class 2A, while fellow state silver medalist Wyoming Seminary trailed closely with six all-state selections in Class A.

Lake-Lehman (five all-state players), Crestwood (four) and Holy Redeemer (four) are not far behind, either.
