Three senior standouts earn top York-Adams girls' basketball honors for 2021-2022
Three senior standouts who will leave behind lasting legacies for their high school programs have been selected as divisional players of the year by the York-Adams League girls’ basketball coaches.
Dallastown’s D’Shantae Edwards was honored in Division I, while Gettysburg’s Anne Bair was selected in Division II and Delone Catholic’s Giana Hoddinott was picked in Division III. All three have started since their freshman seasons.
The coach-of-the-year awards were shared in D-I and D-III, while Jason Seitz was the sole winner in D-II. In D-I, Dallastown’s Jay Rexroth and York High’s Kevin Glover were honored, while in D-III, Delone Catholic’s Gerry Eckenrode and Hanover’s Denny Garman were recognized.
Edwards enjoyed a stellar bounce-back season in 2021-2022 after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in the fifth game of her junior campaign. As a senior, the 5-foot, 7-inch guard averaged 13 points per game for a defensive-minded Wildcats team that gave up 33 points per game.
She helped Dallastown finish at 21-6 overall, including a 13-1 mark in York-Adams Division I. The Wildcats won the division.
Bair, meanwhile, is a do-everything 5-7 guard who will play college basketball on the NCAA Division I level for Manhattan. She’s averaging 14 points, seven assists, five rebounds and two steals per game.
Bair helped the Warriors reach four consecutive District 3 Class 5-A title games, winning two of them, including in 2022.
This season, Bair has guided the Warriors to a 25-5 record, including a state 5-A quarterfinal berth. She is the D-II player of the year for a second consecutive season.
Like Bair, Hoddinott is set to play at the NCAA Division I level in college. She’s committed to Mount St. Mary’s.
Also, like Bair, she’s helped her team to four straight district title game appearances, including three consecutive district crowns.
And again, like Bair, she’s led her team into the state quarterfinals. The Squirettes compete in 4-A.
During her four years at Delone, the Squirettes didn’t lose a single D-III regular-season contest, going 48-0 and winning four consecutive division crowns.
Delone won a state title in Hoddinott’s freshman season.
The 5-9 Hoddinott is averaging about 20 points per game as a senior, helping Delone to a 28-1 record thus far. She’s now been the D-III player of the year for three consecutive seasons.
The strong play of Edwards and Hoddinott helped Rexroth and Eckenrode earn their coaching awards.
Glover earned a piece of the D-I coaching honor after nearly helping a long-struggling York High program make the District 3 6-A playoffs. The Lady Bearcats finished at 9-12.
Seitz helped Eastern York win a second consecutive D-II crown. The Golden Knights were 12-0 in division action and finished 21-6 overall, earning a state 4-A playoff berth.
Garman led Hanover to a 13-9 overall record, including a 5-7 mark in D-III action.
