Gerard Woody, Dallastown: He capped off a brilliant high school career with a fifth-place medal in the 50 free at the PIAA Class AAA championships, then went a lifetime best 46.17 to kick off the Wildcats' 400 free relay state team.

Woody, who is scheduled to sign to swim for North Carolina State on Friday, in April, was the YAIAA champ in both the 50 and 100 freestyles, and was as a part of two championship relay teams.

At districts, Woody placed fourth in the 50 and sixth in the 100 and the two-time Division I boys' swimmer of the year also is excellent in the butterfly, where he posted the second-best winning time of the YAIAA dual-meet season.
   Chris Beaghan, South Western: After winning his second straight YAIAA boys' diving championship, the junior earned a second straight all-star nod. He barely missed a return trip to states after finishing sixth in the District 3 championships.
   Callum Brandt, Red Lion: He was one of two talented freshmen that burst on the scene for the Lions. Brandt qualified for districts after winning a bronze medal in the IM at the YAIAA championships.
   Evan Fisher, Central York: One of the most improved swimmers over a four-year career, the senior became one of the YAIAA's best sprinters, qualifying for AAA districts in the 100 free, while being a key cog on the Panther relay squads.
   Michael Godboldte, Dallastown: The two-time all-star junior placed fifth in both the 50 and 100 free at the league meet, qualifying for districts in both and was huge on Dallastown's record-setting 400 free relay team.
   John Hudish, Dallastown: A true sprinter, the repeat all-star junior was a big factor on the Wildcats' medley and 200 free relays and was eighth at districts in the 50 free, after posting the league's second best time of 21.92.
   John Ingari, Central York: The versatile senior placed second in the 100 butterfly and fourth in the YAIAA in the 200 IM and was a big on the Panthers' stellar 200 medley relay.
   Chance King, Red Lion: Another freshman, King was one of the league's best distance swimmers, posting the second-best time of the season in the 500 free. He qualified for districts in both the 200 and 500 free.
   Steven Paine, Dallastown: Not only the YAIAA backstroke champ, the sophomore also was a terrific freestyler. He finished second in the 200 free at the YAIAA meet and opened the league championship medley relay race.
   Brandon Shaffer, South Western: The three-time all-star won the YAIAA 200 IM championship for the second straight season and also finished 13th in the 500 free at the District 3 Class AAA meet.
   Corey Stauffer, Dallastown: Only a freshman, Stauffer quickly became one of the league's best sprinters, but as indicated when he won the YAIAA 200 free championship, he wasn't afraid to go distance as well.
   Colin Trettel, Spring Grove: Repeated as an all-star after posting a YAIAA-best 2:03.77 in the 200 IM, the same event he placed second at the league meet. The senior also scored a bronze medal in the fly at the YAIAA finals.
   Derek Williams, Dallastown: The senior saved his best for last with his sub-49 second leg in the Wildcats' 400 free relay after finishing second in the 50 free and third in the 100 free at the YAIAA meet.
   Erik Wilson, Red Lion: The two-time YAIAA breaststroke champion is a well-deserved two-time all-star with one more season ahead of him after his Central pool record swim of 1:04.20.
   Rich Howley, Dallastown: A familiar selection as coach of the year, Howley molded seven talented freshmen with an already quality squad, leading the Wildcat boys to a third straight Division I title.

From there, he and the Dallastown boys had one of the program's most impressive postseasons.
