Twenty-three student-athletes from King Philip High School have recently been named Hockomock All-Stars for the winter season.
Jake Layman was named the league MVP, to the surprise of no one.

Dustin Whyte was also named an all-star after being apart of the league champion 200 medley relay team.

Celeste Carey was also named an all-star.
