Petrin of Notre Dame and Andrew Haun and Jett Hieronymus of McCallie. The other area selections were Rhea County's Phillip Rogers in boys' Division I and Walker Valley's Natily Haro and Rhea's Baylee Shipley in girls' Division I. Haro and Shipley were seniors in the 2018-19 season, while Rogers and Hieronymus were juniors and Petrin and Haun were sophomores. The TSWA all-state selections recognized top-five TSSAA state-tournament finishes.
