Cox, Quinn, Beckley, Weaver, Stewart, Bria earn recognition
--- York Catholic coach Andy Bria was named the Associated Press State Class AA Coach of the Year yesterday after leading the Fighting Irish to their first state crown in 27 years.
Bria led the Irish to a 34-1 record, including a 48-43 triumph over Westmont Hilltop in the state title game.That victory saw the Irish make a remarkable comeback from a 19-point, second-half deficit to earn the victory.The Irish also captured the York-Adams League Division II and District 3 Class AA crowns.
It was a stunning turnaround for Bria and the Irish, who finished 0-23 just four years ago.
"It's a team award," Bria said."Nobody should talk about Andy Bria unless you talk about the girls on the team.
"Megan Stewart and Amanda Weaver are where it all starts for us," Bria said.

When Birmingham put Bria back in at the start of the third quarter, it was as if he'd released a hound.
"I was ready to jump through my skin," Bria said of the second quarter."But I knew that my time would come.I had to be patient and cheer on everybody else.When I was down, everyone else picked it up."
This one featured seven ties and five lead changes.York Catholic (23-3) used its pressure to jump out to an early 11-3 lead, but Holy Name kept its poise and got back to within three at the end of the first quarter, despite having Bria on the bench with two fouls.
The Jays stayed on top until midway through the fourth with the help of Bria's 12 third-quarter points, but they couldn't take a commanding lead.
The third-seeded Irish got back on top 44-43 with 3:58 to play on a Kara Lenz drive to the basket.The teams swapped leads before a Liz Moult put-back with 2:25 to go put Holy Name ahead 48-47.
The Jays never trailed again, but York Catholic kept it close with the help of two Megan Stewart 3-pointers.Fittingly, Bria hit a lay-in and three free throws in the final 1:20 to ice it.
"It's huge," Bria said."We don't have that much height, but I think we make it up with heart and hustle.It was a great win for the team.And now I have family bragging rights."
Bria's uncle, Andy Bria, is the head coach of York Catholic.He said if he had to see his season end, he could rest a little easier knowing it was to his niece's team.
"We did not handle it as well as we should have," Andy Bria said of Holy Name's press, which helped create 28 turnovers.
