Three seniors, who will leave lasting legacies on the girls' soccer programs at their respective schools, have earned player-of-the-year honors from the York-Adams League coaches.

Spring Grove's Carley Kibler (Division I), West York's Alexis Miller (Division II) and Fairfield's Naia Roberts (Division III) were recognized as the top players in their divisions when the league's coaches selected the all-star players from the 2020 season.

In addition, the coaches named three coaches of the year. They were Central York's Nathan Trimmer (Division I), Gettysburg's John Colgan (Division II) and Delone Catholic's Derf Maitland (Division III).

Kibler was a four-year starter and a three-year captain for the Rockets, scoring 65 goals during her career. As a junior, she scored 23 goals during a season when the Rockets won just two games. As a senior, she had 20 assists and 12 goals, helping the Rockets improve to a six-win season.

Miller, meanwhile, also played a large role in helping her Bulldogs team make some big strides in 2020. After a 2-10-0 division mark in 2019, West York improved markedly to 7-5-0 this season. Miller, a four-year starter, finished her senior season with 14 goals, including a pair of hat tricks. She also had nine assists.

Roberts had seven goals and two assists this season for a Fairfield team that went 10-1-1 in the regular season and shared the D-III title with Bermudian Springs. Roberts is Fairfield's central midfielder and dominated the middle of the field in division play.  She is known for shutting down the most dangerous player on the opposing team and for regularly regaining possession from the other team. Fairfield won at least a share of the D-III title in each of Roberts' four years. Fairfield will play for the District 3 Class 1-A  title at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Gettysburg High against Mount Calvary Christian.

Trimmer won the D-I coaching award after leading the Panthers to 14-0-0 division record. Five of his players were named either first- or second-team D-I all-stars.

Colgan took the D-II coaching honor after guiding the Warriors to a 12-0-0 record in D-II action. His Warriors placed seven players on the all-star list.

Maitland took the D-III coaching accolade after his Delone team finished 5-7-0 in the division. The Squirettes had three all-stars.

Following is the complete list of all-stars.
