State wrestling champions Thomas Haines and Stephen Loiseau, basketball stars Evan Horn and Alexandra Leslie, sharpshooter Sam Mahan, bowler Chelsey Merklinger and super swimmers Dan Ross and Meredith Newman were among the luminaries honored in this year’s Lancaster Intelligencer Journal/New Era Winter Sports All-Star special section, which hit the streets on Monday.


Haines, a senior from Solanco, capped a brilliant four-year career with his fourth state championship, this one coming in the 285-pound weight class. He finished his career with a L-L League record 174 victories.

Haines was voted co-Wrestler of the Year, sharing the honor with Loiseau, a Lancaster Catholic senior who completed a 46-0 campaign this season with a state title in the 182-pound class. He finished his career with a 154-26 record.

Horn, a sophomore guard, helped Cedar Crest capture its first Lancaster-Lebanon League title since 1976. The Falcons went on to finish second in the District Three Class AAAA tournament and won its PIAA playoff opener before bowing out with a 49-43 loss to LaSalle College in the second round. Horn, who averaged 9.9 points per game, was voted the league’s Player of the Year.

Winning the honor for the girls was Leslie, a 6-2 senior forward at Manheim Township, which captured the L-L League championship in February. Leslie was an integral part of the title push, averaging 16.3 points per game. The Blue Streaks finished 27-3, falling to West Chester Rustin in the first round of States. Leslie finished her career with 1,365 points.
