Seven seniors paced the list of the Lights on the team, including K.C. Barrett, Hilbert Corbert, Ryan Halko, Kyle Kercher, Jeff Mahana, Travis Hjort and Casey Varner. The rest of the Northern players honored were sophomores, including Matt Bean, Alex Cummings, Nick Griffin, Todd Henrich, Orin Johnson, Tim Jovanovich, Brandt Montelius, Rostyn Pace, Matt Reyant, Stephen Silva, Tanner Varner and Josh Wilson.
Former Havre Blue Ponies Gary Wagner and Billy Wagner also made the list, as did former Chester/J-I standout Garrett Graff, for Carroll College.
To be eligible for the team, the student-athlete must be at least a sophomore in standing, maintain a 3.0 GPA and be enrolled at school the previous two semesters.
