For the fall sports which have already concluded, all-league team selections have been made, in some cases several weeks ago with the conclusion of the league competitions.  Golf, Tennis, and Cross Country all-league honors are determined based on how each individual finishes during the league meets/tournaments.  For volleyball and football, a nomination process is used.  Here are the Crusader honorees so far:
