Noah Brockway
Swimmer of the Year

Noah Brockway, Dallastown, sr.: He won the District 3 Class AAA 100 backstroke championship and was a huge part of three Wildcats relays that qualified for the PIAA championships, including the 200 freestyle relay that earned a fifth-place medal at states.

A swimmer who could have medaled in more than one individual event, Brockway focused on helping getting those teammates to postseason glory.

Dallastown coach Rich Howley noted the work ethic of Brockway and his teammates, saying, "Being with them every day, you see how hard they work, their dedication, their passion and desire."

Brockway capped a standout career that included four YAIAA Division I team championships, along with numerous league event titles, plus school and league record-breaking relay swims, while defining leadership for his team.

First-team all-stars

Will Hartzell, Central York, jr.: Hartzell was a key part of the Panthers' league champion 400 free relay, which also went on to a sixth-place medal at districts and a spot in the state meet. Individually, he was second in the 100 backstroke and sixth in the 50 free at the YAIAA meet.

Alec Peckmann, Central York, fr.: The tremendously talented newcomer posted the league's fastest time in three individual events during the regular season and won YAIAA gold in the 200 and 100 freestyle races, before placing fourth in both at the district meet. He also anchored the Panthers' 400 free relay that won a sixth-place medal at districts and went to states.

Erik Peckmann, Central York, sr.: Great individually or on relays, the elder Peckmann helped the Panthers become perennial Division I contenders during his terrific career. This season, he won the 50 free title at the YAIAA meet. A leader in every sense, he will graduate with his name all over the Central record board.

Jesse Tate, Central York, jr.: The versatile junior put up great times in the 200 individual medley, the 100 fly and the 500 free. He won silver medals at the YAIAA meet in the 100 fly and 500 free, plus he was a valuable member of the Panthers' relays, including the YAIAA champion 400 free.

Logan Brockway, Dallastown, fr.: Brockway capped his first high school season by swimming on a pair of Wildcats relays at the PIAA meet, two weeks after winning silver in the 200 free relay and bronze in the 400. He's part of the next generation of Wildcats, who have won seven straight YAIAA Division I titles.

Spencer Hill, Dallastown, jr.: Hill not only won the District 3 Class AAA 100 butterfly championship, but he also set a district record in the process with a 49.94. He went on to an eighth-place medal at the PIAA meet, but Hill is proved to be so much more. He opened the Wildcats 200 free relay that earned a fifth-place medal at states.

Jake Stoner, Dallastown, so.: Coming into his own as a sophomore, Stoner became a key component on Dallastown's three relay teams, all of which received automatic berths in the PIAA championships. He was third in the 100 butterfly at the YAIAA meet and was fifth at districts, and he reached states individually.

Grant Wertz, Dallastown, fr.: The rookie entered the league in style, posting the fastest 100 breaststroke time during the season. He qualified for states in the event after a seventh-place finish at districts, and swam the same stroke on the Wildcats' 200 medley relay that was second at districts.

Casey Marshall, Dover, jr.: The Eagle qualified for states in the 100 backstroke and the 100 butterfly after winning bronze and silver medals, respectively, at the District 3 meet. He was fourth in the 200 free and fifth in the butterfly at the YAIAA championships and keyed Dover's medley and 400 free relays that finished eighth at districts.

Dylan North, Red Lion, jr.: The YAIAA distance champ swam an impressive 4:44.58 in the 500 free to win the league meet, where he added a silver medal in the 200 free. He capped an outstanding season by placing sixth in the 500 free at districts. That earned him an at-large berth to the state championships, where he swam consolations.

Aidan Fryar, York Suburban, fr.: An outstanding sprinter, the frosh earned bronze in the 50 free at the district meet and reached the awards stand at states for his work on the Trojans' PIAA bronze medal-winning 200 and 400 free relays, which won silver at districts. He definitely makes the ones-to-watch list for next season.

Matt Spinello, York Suburban, jr.: Spinello needs a new drawer for all the hardware he won during the 2015 postseason. The District 3 Class AA 100 butterfly champ won a silver medal at the PIAA championships and also swam on the aforementioned relays. He also swam the 100 free at states.
