A total of four student-athletes from the Ohio Valley Publishing area were selected to the 2016 all-district girls golf teams, as chosen by the coaches within the southeast district of Ohio.

Each of the four schools that offer girls golf were represented on the Division II all district squad, which included one second team choice and a trio of honorable mention selections.

The lone underclassman from the OVP area was Eastern sophomore Kylee Tolliver, who was named to the second team in Division II.

Southern senior Ashlee Acree, Gallia Academy senior Kimberly Edelmann and Meigs senior Kendra Robie were all chosen as honorable mention selections in Division II.
