The Marshall football team led the Southwest Conference with six All-SWC selections for the 2011 season.
The Tigers, who won the SWC title outright a year after splitting it with Jackson County Central and Luverne, finished the season with a 9-1 record, losing their only game to fourth-ranked Hutchinson in the Section 2AAAA semifinals.
Marshall seniors Beau Bofferding, Alex Fenske, Mason Schnaible and Ben Sanders were joined by juniors Austin Saugstad and Austin Nath as All-SWC selections. Marshall also had two honorable mentions with sophomore Tyus DeBoer and senior Eli Louwagie.
The conference also released its All-SWC girls tennis selections. Marshall's lone representative was junior Brooke Louwagie. The SWC does not recognize honorable mention selections for tennis.
The SWC all-conference volleyball team will be released Monday following the state tournament.
