York-Adams League coaches honor top swimming standouts from the 2019-2020 season
- The York-Adams coaches have honored the league's top swimmers.
- Central York's Camryn Leydig is a four-time, first-team girls' all-star.
- Dallastown's Joel Dunnigan is a four-time, first-team boys' all-star.
Camryn Leydig is just a sophomore, but the Central York swimmer is already building quite an impressive high school resume.
Leydig was the top York-Adams League performer at the recently completed PIAA Class 3-A Swimming Championships.
Now, Leydig is a four-time first-team all-league all-star.
The Y-A coaches recently released their list of all-star swimmers for the 2019-2020 season and Leydig is the only female league athlete to earn first-team recognition in four events.
Four is the maximum number of all-star berths that any swimmer could earn under the rules adopted by the Y-A coaches. The coaches adopted that rule because four is the maximum number of events that a swimmer can enter during a meet.
The all-star positions were determined based on the top times achieved during the regular season and the postseason. First-team, second-team and third-team all-league all-stars were announced in each of the 12 high school events.
Individually, Leydig was a first-team performer in the 100-yard backstroke and 200 individual medley. At the 3-A state meet, Leydig was fifth in the 100 butterfly and seventh in the 100 backstroke.
Leydig was also on a pair of first-team all-league relays — the 400 freestyle and 200 medley.
The only other four-time first-team all-league performer was Dallastown senior Joel Dunnigan, who had the top individual boys' time in the 100 butterfly and was part of three first-team all-league relays: the 200 freestyle, the 400 freestyle and the 200 medley. Thomas Smolinski was also a part of all three of those Dallastown relays. Dunnigan took ninth in the 100 butterfly at the 3-A state meet.
Leydig was the only female swimmer to earn first-team all-league recognition in two individual events. There were three boys to earn that honor. They were: Susquehannock senior Logan McFadden in the 500 freestyle and 200 individual medley; Spring Grove sophomore Daniel Gordon in the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle; and Central York senior Cameron Speed in the 200 freestyle and 100 backstroke.
McFadden was expected to be a major gold medal contender at the state 2-A swim meet, but that event was not held because of the coronavirus pandemic. He was the No. 1 seed in the 200 individual medley and the No. 2 seed in the 500 freestyle. The Warriors' 200 freestyle relay was seeded No. 1.
At the 3-A state meet, Gordon took sixth in the 50 freestyle and ninth in the 100 freestyle.
The other first-team all-league performers on the girls' side were: Dallastown junior Samantha Trumble in the 50 freestyle; Gettysburg senior Morgan Newell in the 100 freestyle; Gettysburg sophomore Hannah Brainard in the 200 freestyle; Dallastown freshman Zoe Schneider in the 500 freestyle; Red Lion sophomore Arabella Butera in the 100 breaststroke; Central York sophomore Sydney Ulmer in the 100 butterfly; and Northeastern junior Abigail O'Leary in diving.
The Dallastown 200 freestyle girls' relay earned first-team recognition. Trumble and Schneider were part of that relay.
Ulmer joined Leydig on Central's two first-team all-league relays to earn three total first-team performances.
The other first-team individual boys' all-stars were: Dallastown senior Justin Smick in the 100 breaststroke and Northeastern sophomore Stephen Barlett in diving.
