The Northeastern High School boys' volleyball team cruised to a York-Adams League championship this past spring with a perfect 11-0 record.

The Bobcats then went on to a District 3 Class 3-A runner-up finish and a PIAA quarterfinal appearance.

So, it's not a big surprise that coach Matt Wilson’s Bobcats were well represented when the District 3 Class 3-A all-star teams were released.

Three Northeastern players made the first team and two more made the second team. In all, eight players from the York-Adams League were honored.

The first-team honorees from Northeastern were senior outside hitter Brady Lemen, senior right-side hitter Joel Braswell and senior libero Tristan Schraudner. The Bobcats who earned second-team recognition were senior outside hitter Brian Warrender and senior setter Tanner Sadowski.

Northeastern tied Central Dauphin for the most first-team selections at three and the most overall sections at five.
