The York-Adams League girls' basketball coaches released their all-star teams last week, naming Susquehannock's Jaden Walker, South Western's Taylor Geiman and Delone Catholic's Bradi Zumbrum as their divisional players of the year.
The 5-foot, 10-inch Walker, a four-year varsity player for the Warriors, led Susquehannock to a 14-9 record and a 10-4 mark in Division II play.
"I was happy and shocked," said Walker, who was a D-II all-star as a sophomore and a junior. "There are so many other talented players in the league. Coming from the coaches means a lot."
The St. Joseph's University commit led the Y-A League in scoring at 15.7 points per game. She tallied 313 points in 20 games.
"I was really excited for her, because I thought she was the best player in the entire county from top to bottom," said Susquehannock head coach Dave Schreiner. "I thought it was great that the coaches nominated her."
Schreiner said the D-II Player of the Year honor is a "great way" for Walker to end her career at Susquehannock. She was a starter on the 2016-17 team that won a District 3 title and advanced to the state semifinals. The Warriors also won three D-II tiles in Walker's career.
"She’s worked hard for four years. She’s done a lot here for the program," Schreiner said. "She was a big part of any of the program’s accomplishments."
The Warriors' head coach said he's excited to watch Walker play in college at NCAA Division I level.
"I think she’s going to really improve through her college career," Schreiner said. "She's been told she can come in and contribute right away. I'm really looking forward to seeing her play the next four years."
Taylor Geiman: A South Western shooting guard, the 6-1 Geiman was named the D-I Player of the Year.
The do-everything senior led the Mustangs to a 16-7 campaign and a 10-2 record in D-I. She was eighth in scoring in the league with 13 points per game. She tallied 298 points in 23 contests.
She's committed to play at the NCAA D-I level at Virginia Tech.
Bradi Zumbrum: Zumbrum, Delone Catholic's center/power forward, won D-III's Player of the Year award.
The 6-foot post player is a standout on the Y-A team that made it further in the PIAA tournament than any other squad. The Squirrettes went 12-0 in D-III play.
Zumbrum scored 11.8 points per game and was ranked ninth in the Y-A League in free throw percentage at 72.3 percent. She's set to play at York College.
The coaches of the year were Dallastown's Jay Rexroth in D-I, Gettysburg's Jeff Bair and Kennard-Dale's Aaron Eaton in D-II and Bermudian Springs' Todd Askins in D-III.
Dallastown won the D-I and league playoff titles and finished second in District 3 Class 6-A. The Wildcats finished at 25-4, including a state playoff win.
Gettysburg finished 23-7, taking second in Y-A D-II, second in District 3 Class 5-A and earning a state playoff win.
K-D finished 23-5, winning the Y-A D-II title, finishing third in District 3 Class 4-A and grabbing a state playoff win.
