Boys

It’s Conestoga and La Salle for the 87th straight, give or take, year. The Pioneers and Explorers have clearly separated themselves from the rest of the PIAA pack.

Conestoga has way more losses than it’s used to at this point, but the Pioneers are where they wanted to be. (From the Daily Local‘s Andy Edwards)

La Salle has two strong goalies in Nick Hreshko and Colin MacDougall, and platooning them has been a boost for the Explorers. (From the Times Herald‘s Rick Kauffman)
