Sixth annual All-CBJ Team members officially named

For the sixth year in a row, we at The Cash-Book Journal are excited to honor eight of the best athletes within our coverage area of Jackson, Notre Dame, Oak Ridge and Saxony Lutheran.

Like each year, two female and two male athletes are selected from each school to be on the annual All-CBJ Team. From these eight, two will be chosen as our two athletes of the year.

Starting with the female All-CBJ Team members, the selections are Jackson sophomore Ashlyn Dawes (softball and soccer), Notre Dame senior Lauren Eftink (cross country and track and field), Oak Ridge junior Reagan Howe (volleyball and basketball) and Saxony junior Camille Richey (volleyball, basketball and soccer). All four of these athletes are first-time All-CBJ selections as each of them earned all-state honors in one of their respective sports.

As for the male All-CBJ Team honorees, they are Jackson sophomore Brysen Wessell (football, wrestling and track and field), Notre Dame senior Charlie West (soccer, wrestling and tennis), Oak Ridge senior Ty Wilson (cross country and basketball) and Saxony senior Luke Eggemeyer (soccer, basketball and volleyball). These four athletes are also first-time members of the All-CBJ Team.

The winners of our two CBJ Athlete of the Year awards will officially be announced in next week’s special section. Last year’s athletes of the year were 2023 graduates Mallorie Metzger of Jackson and Tori Rubel of Notre Dame.
