Who runs the YAIAA this year?
After the fall sports season, Andy Mease and I asked which school in the YAIAA had the best winning percentage across all of the fall sports? We whipped together a spreadsheet with win/loss totals for all 24 schools and now we've updated it with winter sports win/loss totals.
Were there any changes? Who moved up? Who moved down? Which school dominated across the board with consistent success in each of the 14 sports?
Below are the updated rankings. Enjoy.
So who runs the YAIAA? Apparently, the Central York Panthers do.
--At the top, Central and Dallastown remain at 1 and 2. Red Lion and York Suburban flip-flopped and Gettysburg fell from fifth to 11th, while West York jumped into the top five (thanks to basketball).
Moving up--Delone Catholic (10th to 7th), Bermudian Springs (12th to 8th), Hanover (20th to 16th).
Delone and Bermudian both got above .500 (thanks to wrestling and basketball for both) and now lead the way for Hanover-Adams teams.
Hanover made a small jump to get out of the YAIAA cellar (thanks basketball) and the Nighthawks' winning percentage jumped almost 10 points.
Moving down--Gettysburg (5th to 11th), South Western (11th to 13th), Littlestown (22nd to 23rd), Fairfield (21st to 22nd), Biglerville (19th to 21st), New Oxford (15th to 20th).
The biggest sliders were Gettysburg and New Oxford. The Warriors' boys basketball team made it to states and went 16-11 overall, but besides that, Gettysburg struggled in the winter. New Oxford's girls hoops team went 17-7 overall, but the Colonials struggled elsewhere.
The Canners' winning percentage actually went up despite the drop in ranking.
The Bolts have more losses combined than any other school in the league.
Staying put-- Spring Grove (18th)
Solid boys basketball and wrestling seasons kept the Rockets right where they were after the fall season.
