2- The teams are unsanctioned by Montgomery County Public Schools.
Five different teams were represented in the first team selections.
Damascus, which won the MPSSAA 3A West regional championship, had the most picks to the first team with four. The Hornets' contingent was led by outfielder Aaron Mettus, who was also named the MVP of the division as well. The team's right side of the infield also made the first team with Tyler Retherford getting the nod at first base, and George Lowe making it at second base. Pitcher Ethan Wentzlaff rounded out the Hornets' group.
Blake had the second largest group with three players picked to the first team. Will Brown made it as a pitcher, while shortstop Jared Lowry also got selected. Utility man Mike Griffin rounded out the Bengals who were chosen.
Rockville, which reached the MPSSAA 3A South regional championship, saw two of its own picked to the first team: catcher Sam Chisholm and outfielder Mickey Van Gieson. Magruder also had two players selected: Sam Crickey for third base, and Gerald Buchanan for outfield.
Poolesville pitcher Brady Pearre was the team's lone representative on the first team. It wasn't the only recognition Pearre would get, as he was also named the Most Valuable Pitcher in the division as well.
