Just one point separated the present from the future of the Four Rivers Conference.
Hermann senior Jake Schannuth was named the league’s player of the year by one point over Pacific freshman Cullen VanLeer.
However, Cullen’s father, Pacific Head Coach John VanLeer, did receive the league’s coach of the year honor after leading the Indians to the league title with a perfect 7-0 league mark.
And receiving the league’s sixth man award was Sullivan senior Uriah Heady.
Six players earned unanimous all-conference honors during balloting from the league’s coaches.
