Abby Straub

Wyoming Seminary, Senior

Straub returned to the attack position she had played earlier in her career and remained a Times Leader all-star after earning honors as a midfielder last season. She was the second-leading scorer on a championship team with 56 goals and 16 assists, pushing her career totals to 142 goals and 37 assists.

Natasha Koslop

Crestwood, Junior

Koslop was the team’s leading scorer throughout an 8-3 regular season, then produced more than half the Lady Comets’ goals (11 of 21) in two District 2 playoff games.

Samantha Delamater

Dallas, Senior

Split time between attack and midfield. She finishes as the career scoring leader at Dallas with 161 goals after producing 51 more this season as team captain.

Katie Strohl

Lake-Lehman, Senior

Strohl’s versatility allowed her to repeat as a Times Leader all-star. She made the team last year as an attacker/midfielder and makes it this time around for her combination of play on the attack and as a draw specialist. By winning 268 draws, Strohl produced the second-best percentage in the nation among players from schools that report statistics through maxpreps.com. She also scored 58 goals, had 18 assists, controlled 27 groundballs and made 22 takeaways. Also, a second-team choice as a sophomore, she finished with 223 career goals.

Christina Kilyanek

Wyoming Seminary, Sophomore

The midfielder became a big part of the offense for the Wyoming Valley Conference and District 2 Class 2A champions in her first season as a full-time starter. She scored 55 goals and assisted on 12 more.

Taylor Tomalinas

Crestwood, Junior

While also competing as a sprinter on the Comets track team, Tomalinas used her speed to run the field as an effective two-way performer in the Crestwood lacrosse midfield.

Julia Gabriel

Wyoming Seminary Junior

The defensive midfielder contributed to another championship sweep by the Blue Knights. In addition to being a vital part of the offense, she gave the offense an occasional boost with 16 goals and four assists.

Samantha Brumagin

Crestwood, Junior

Brumagin is a Times Leader all-star on defense for the second straight season. She led a unit that allowed just 5.7 goals per game.

Carey-Ann Keiper

Lake-Lehman, Senior

Keiper, a defender, repeats as a Times Leader all-star after helping the district finalists allow just 6.1 goals per game. She had 26 takeaways, controlled 15 groundballs and scored twice for the Black Knights.

Grace Butler

Lake-Lehman, Junior

Butler’s play in goal helped Lake-Lehman get through league play with just one loss on its way to an appearance in the district final. She posted a .605 save percentage and one shutout. She also handled 15 groundballs and made seven takeaways.

Coach of the Year

Ron Strohl, Lake-Lehman

Strohl guided the Black Knights to the first district championship game appearance in school history. He has spent the last two years as head coach after sharing duties as co-coach the previous two seasons. Lake-Lehman won Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 titles in Strohl’s second year as co-coach and first year as head coach. The WVC reverted to a single league this year and Lake-Lehman finished second with just one loss. Overall, the Black Knights have had three straight winning seasons and are 31-13 with Strohl as head coach and 22-17 with him as co-coach.
