Danville's golf team has already built itself into a dynasty since the formation of the Heartland Athletic Conference five years ago.
If Shikellamy keeps shooting the way it has the past two seasons, the Braves are well on their way to becoming a dynasty as well.
Behind the father-son team of Ernie and C.J. Tyler, Shikellamy claimed its second consecutive Heartland-I title this year with a 27-3 record.
As a result, the elder Tyler was named the division's Coach of the Year while the younger Tyler was a first-team honoree for the Braves along with teammates Dakota Portzline and Raven Fatool.
C.J. Tyler recaptured the District 4 Class AAA individual title this year prior to qualifying for the PIAA meet in October. Fatool also qualified for the state meet for the Braves.
Selinsgrove (26-4), the Division I runner-up and District 4 Class AAA team champion, had Colin Rice, Justin Geedey and Logan Sears make it onto the first team.
Danville claimed its fourth straight HAC-II title this season and fifth overall after the Ironmen competed in Division I their first year.
Danville had an unblemished record of 30-0 on the year prior to defending its District 4 Class AA title in October.
Ron Kanaskie was the division's Coach of the Year while three Ironmen -- Austin Renz, Zach Schutter, Mark Mullery -- were all named to the HAC-II's first team.
Renz defended his District 4 Class AA individual title in 2013 before also qualifying for the PIAA meet.
Other notables on the HAC-II first team were Ben Apple and Emily Conrad from Lewisburg, plus Katie Behnert from Milton, the latter a state qualifier as well for the Black Panthers.
In the HAC-III, Warrior Run claimed the division title. Along with it, the Defenders placed two golfers on the first team: Jared Bender and Jacob Lenhart.
In addition for Warrior Run, Brad Peace was named the HAC-III's Coach of the Year.
