TOP PLAYER — Fairfield’s Naia Roberts (12) has been named the YAIAA-3 Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year by a vote of league head coaches.

Fairfield senior Naia Roberts has been named the girls’ soccer player of the year in the YAIAA-3 by a vote of league coaches.

Roberts, a fixture in the lineup for Fairfield during its last four title-winning teams, heads a group of Green Knights who were honored. Honey Strosnider and Emma Dennison earned first-team honors while Therese Phelan, Liv Cliber and Audrey Chesko landed on the second team.

Roberts patrols the middle for the Knights, who went 10-1-1 in the regular season to earn a share of the Y-3 title. She’ll lead Fairfield into tonight’s District 3 Class 1A championship tilt against Mount Calvary Christian, to be played at 7 p.m. at Warrior Stadium in Gettysburg.

Delone Catholic’s Derf Maitland was chosen as the Y-3 coach of the year after the Squirettes went 5-7 and placed Mary Dizor and Maddie O’Brien on the first team.

Bermudian Springs, which matched Fairfield’s 10-1-1 regular-season mark and earned a spot in the D3-2A playoffs, had Bailey Oehmig and Hannah Chenault named first-team performers under head coach Jeff Hamon.

John Colgan was named the top coach in Y-2 after guiding Gettysburg to a 12-0 regular-season record and a second straight division crown. Warriors Lora Bertram, Alivia Colgan, Alison Harvey and Maddy Gaydon landed on the first team, with Audrey Robertson, Autumn Oaster and Aurelia Santoyo getting second-team nods.
