York-Adams League coaches select 2022 cross country all-stars
The York-Adams League has selected its cross country all-stars for the fall 2022 season, as voted by league coaches.
Each of the association's three divisions selected a runner of the year — Division I selected two — as well as all-county teams consisting of between six and eight additional runners.
It was a memorable year for the league in this sport, as four local athletes took home District 3 individual championships last month. All four earned at least a share of Runner of the Year in their respective divisions. Girls' teams at York Catholic and Dallastown both represented their schools at the PIAA state tournament in Hershey as well.
Dallastown captured both Runner of the Year honors given out in Division I. Senior Jakob Rager won the award on the boys' side, while Wildcat teammates Kailey Granger and Victoria Rodriguez shared the girls' honor. Rager paced the boys' team all season and qualified for states as an individual. Rodriguez, a sophomore, won the York-Adams League race on Oct. 18, while the senior Granger answered by winning the District 3 Class 3A title and finishing fifth overall at the state meet.
Susquehannock seniors Matthew O'Brien and Nicole Dauberman swept the Division II Runner of the Year selections. O'Brien, one of the top runners in the country, repeated as league and district champion before finishing 19th in Class 3A at the state meet. Dauberman, competing in Class 2A on the girls' side, also won her District 3 race; she finished third at the league meet and seventh at states.
York Catholic sophomore Madeline Murphy, after placing fourth behind Rodriguez, Granger and Dauberman at the league championships, cruised to a District 3 Class 1A title and placed seventh at states, leading her team to a third-place finish in the class. She's the Division III Runner of the Year on the girls' side and will return with the chance for more. Littlestown's Peyton Small captured the boys' top honor in the division.
The boys' all-star lists are heavy on upperclassmen, while there's plenty of young talent on the girls' side that could help make next fall another memorable campaign.
