Glavin, a repeat all-stater, hit .518 for the Bucks this past season with seven doubles, three triples and 21 RBIs. Glavin, who set a new single season hits mark at Buchanan with 71, also was 31-of-31 in stolen base attempts.
LaPlace hit .451 for the Eddies with 15 extra base hits and 36 RBIs. She was also 12-5 in the circle with an ERA of 2.89.
LaPlace was also all-district and all-region.
Joining her on the all-district team were Kaley Frank, Brittany Hurst, Tanner Kiessel, Jill Blough, Nicole Brooks and coach Randy Brooks.
All-region honors went to Kiessel and Nicole Brooks.
This is the second straight year that the Eddies have had an all-state selection. Victoria Knight was first team all-state in 2011.
