Bohlman was a national qualifier in 2005 at 133-pounds, in 2006 as at 141-pounder and in 2007 as a 149-pound wrestler. He was an All-American in 2006 and again in 2007. The Spartans registered 68 dual match wins during Bohlman’s career including 21 in 2005-06.
Brower enters the hall as one of the all-time great pitchers in York College baseball history. Brower, a 2007 graduate, still has his name all over the York College record book 11 years after his graduation. Brower ranks first in school history in wins (27), innings pitched (326.2), and strikeouts (242). He was the 2007 Daniel J.

Swope, a 2005 York College graduate, ended his career as one of the most feared sluggers in the Capital Athletic Conference.

He was a four-time All-CAC selection and ended his career fifth in the CAC in all-time doubles.
