The Mules bowed out in the L-L quarterfinals, but earned the No. 1 seed in the District Three Class 5A bracket, where 20-win Solanco earned a fourth-place finish and will play in the PIAA playoffs.

Coach of the Year: Ashli Shay, Elco
The Raiders have had a sensational season under Shay, keeping pace with Lancaster Catholic in the Section Four and District Three Class 4A races. Elco earned a second-place finish behind the Crusaders in the section hunt, and then beat a pair of section champs — Solanco and Cedar Crest, both on the road — to advance to the L-L title game. Elco fell to Lancaster Catholic — and again to the Crusaders in the district semifinals — but Shay will take her 20-win team to the state tourney.

Coach of the Year: Trevor Orr, Lancaster Mennonite
What a debut for the Blazers’ first-year skipper, who guided Mennonite to a 10-0 run through league play for the program’s first section championship since 2010. The Blazers knocked off Section Two champ E-town in the L-L quarters before falling to eventual champ Lancaster Catholic in the league semifinals. But Orr and his squad went on to finish third in the tricky District Three Class 3A bracket, and the 20-win Blazers are heading to the state playoffs.
