COACH OF THE YEAR
Keith Sachs, Wantagh
The 22-year veteran earned his second state championship with the Warriors, the first since 1998. Wantagh finished with a 25-5 record and rallied from four runs down to beat Williamsville East, 6-5, in the Class A final.
Player of the Year
Ian Anderson, P, Shenendehowa (Clifton Park), 6-3/170, Sr.
Bad weather and minor injuries delayed the season’s start for the No. 3 pick in the MLB Draft, but once Anderson got on the mound, he proved to be the most effective hurler in the state. He posted a 5-1 record with a 0.50 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP and did the majority of his damage in a postseason run to the Class AA state championship: four complete game wins with one (unearned) run allowed, 41 strikeouts and just four walks.
