Which school dominated the fall season?
Now that the fall sports season has wrapped up, we're looking back and asking a simple question: Who dominated the fall season?
Across all fall sports, which YAIAA schools racked up the most wins?
We counted up all of the wins from the fall and the top five are pictured and listed below.
And the crown for dominating the fall season goes to……
(Drum roll, please…)
Who do the Panthers have to thank for that? Well, just about everybody. The golf team, boys soccer, girls volleyball, cross country and many others battled at the top of YAIAA Division I. Central was also among the top teams represented on GameTimePA's first-team all star lists. Emma Saxton, Emily Poole, Jared Wagner, Igor Gomes, Yvonne Peters-Washington, Rodney Johnson and numerous others proved that talent is plentiful in the Central halls.
The football, field hockey, girls tennis, girls soccer and cross country teams helped lift Dallastown to second on the chart with 112 total wins. Like Central, the Wildcats finished above .500 in eight of the nine fall sports. Central York and Dallastown also finished one and two after all three sports seasons in 2014.
A bounce back year in football and deep state playoff runs by the boys and girls soccer teams helped make Susquehannock the highest-ranked non-Division I school. Field hockey, cross country and girls volleyball also had standout seasons.
The Trojans tied Red Lion for number of total wins, but edged the Lions in winning percentage. Andy Loucks and the football team won their first division title since the 1980s, girls volleyball made a deep postseason run and both cross country teams went undefeated once again.
Both cross country teams and girls volleyball really helped the Lions sneak into the fifth spot. Those three sports combined for 50 of Red Lion's 87 wins.
Next on the list: Gettysburg (87 wins, 57.6 percent win percentage), South Western (83, 56.8), Delone Catholic (79, 53.0)
