Mailman, Laughman crowned athletes of the year
York Suburban senior Collin Mailman and Delone Catholic senior Katie Laughman were named the male and female athletes of the year at the first GameTimePA Athletes of the Year Awards Banquet on Thursday.
Mailman, who is committed to play lacrosse at Drexel University, was also named the boys' lacrosse player of the year. He was a first-team all-star selection for football and was a member of the Trojans' basketball team. He scored 60 goals and registered 18 assists for the lacrosse team, and set a school record with 55 receptions for a league-leading 1,094 yards and 14 touchdowns for the football team.
Laughman, who is committed to play volleyball at Millersville University, was also named the girls' volleyball player of the year. She was also a first-team all-star selection for softball and was a member of the Squirettes' basketball team. She started for all three teams, helping Delone Catholic win division titles in all three and qualify for the state championships in volleyball and basketball.
In addition to naming Players of the Year for each sport, GameTimePA also announced the winners of two other awards open to athletes from all sports.
Central York senior Jared Wagner was named the Shipley Energy Athlete of the Year and Bermudian Springs junior Austin Clabaugh was given the Courage Award.
Wagner, who was a first-team all-star selection for both soccer and basketball, is notorious for wearing his emotions on his sleeve. He was a particularly polarizing figure during basketball season as he flamboyantly led the Panthers basketball team to the YAIAA Division I title and the District 3 Class AAAA title game.
Clabaugh, who was a first-team all-star selection for wrestling, put together a one-loss regular season while dealing with the death of his mother, Karen, who died from a heart attack in early December. Clabaugh went on to win a sectional title, placed second in the district, placed fourth in the region and qualified for states.
