PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Troy Miller, Susquehannock: The senior shortstop wore out opposing pitchers all season. He racked up a sparkling .500 batting average, and also served as one of the Warriors' main power sources. He swatted eight extra-base hits (two home runs) and drove in 24 RBIs.
Miller had hits in 16 of Susquehannock's 18 games, and also notched nine multi-hit games.
P, Matt Petersen, York Suburban: The senior was the top left-handed pitcher in the division, despite a deceiving 2-4 record. At the plate, Petersen hit .308 and smacked six extra-base hits, including a home run.
C, Kevin McManama, Bermudian Springs: A three-year starter and the Eagles' MVP, the senior put up some eye-popping numbers at the dish, including a .449 average and an incredible 1.421 on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS). McManama had 23 RBIs and 11 extra-base hits, including two homers.
C, Logan Mummert, Littlestown: The sophomore turned in a breakout season. Mummert batted .380, scored 11 runs and knocked in 11 more.
IF, Colton Forbes, Bermudian Springs: The senior first baseman batted .440 out of the Eagles' cleanup spot with 25 RBIs and two home runs. He also scored 18 runs and charted an OPS of 1.136.
IF, Ryan Kehr, Littlestown: Another one of the Bolts' sophomore standouts, the third baseman hit .346 with 12 runs and eight RBIs. As a pitcher, Kehr went 2-1 with a 2.72 ERA in 18 innings.
IF, Sam Miller, Susquehannock: The freshman was outstanding in his debut season for the Warriors. Miller compiled a .490 batting average, pounded a home run and knocked in 10 runs.
IF, Ryky Smith, Eastern York: The Golden Knights shortstop, who will play at Penn State next spring, hit .350 this season with 14 RBIs, four doubles and two triples.
OF/P, Alex Emlet, Bermudian Springs: Emlet was both a reliable bat for the Eagles (.429, 20 runs, 19 RBIs) but also their staff ace. In 312/3 innings, Emlet posted a 2.65 ERA and had more strikeouts (29) than hits allowed (22).
OF, Nolan Spahr, Bermudian Springs: The Eagles outfielder was a run-scoring machine -- he crossed the plate 29 times -- thanks mostly to a .476 average. Spahr also had four doubles, two triples and 18 RBIs.
OF, Zeke Ottemiller, York Suburban: The Trojans outfielder knocked in 16 runs and scored 17 times. Ottemiller showed plenty of patience at the plate, drawing 13 walks on the season.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Kevin Krebs, Susquehannock: The Warriors emerged as contenders during their first season in Division III. And while Susquehannock couldn't quite unseat perennial division favorite Bermudian Springs, it came close: The Warriors' 9-5 division record (10-8 overall) was good for second place, two games behind the Eagles.
