Chandler Hake, Connor Kernan and Ryan Muller have earned the major boys' lacrosse awards from the York-Adams League coaches.

York Catholic senior attack Hake is the Offensive Player of the Year, Susquehannock senior goalie Kernan is the Defensive Player of the Year and Central York's Muller is the Coach of the Year.

Hake is a major reason why York Catholic won its first 17 games this season en route to winning the Y-A regular-season championship and earning the No. 1 seed in the District 3 Class 2-A playoffs.

According to York Catholic's MaxPreps site, Hake has 81 goals and 35 assists. 

Hake has committed to play NCAA Division II lacrosse at Florida Tech.

Connor Kernan: Kernan, meanwhile, has been stellar in the cage for the Warriors, who are 12-5 overall. According to Susquehannock's MaxPreps site, Kernan has a 5.4 goals-against average and .688 save percentage. He's made 186 saves on the season.

"He is a team captain and leader for our team," Susquehannock head coach Tom Mayne said. "His teammates love him because he is just one of the guys and knows his role. He just happens to be a tremendous goalie and fine young man. We definitely would not be the same team without him in the cage."  

Kernan has committed to play NCAA Division I lacrosse at Cleveland State University.

Ryan Muller: Muller led Central to the Y-A playoff title on Friday, ending York Catholic's perfect season with a 13-5 triumph.

The Panthers are 15-2 overall and earned the No. 4 seed in the District 3 Class 3-A playoffs.

York Catholic boasted the most first-team all-star league selections with four, followed by Red Lion with three and York Suburban and Susquehannock with two each.
