WRESTLING: Spring Grove season ends

Posted: February 5, 2016 in Wrestling


The Spring Grove wrestling team saw its team season come to an end on Thursday night after losing to Cedar Cliff, 36-30, in the consolation semifinals of the District 3-AAA tournament at Spring Grove High School.

The fifth-seeded Rockets were tied 24-24 with the No. 3 Colts heading into the final four bouts, but a 4-2 loss by Chance Jackson at 120 pounds gave Cedar Cliff a 27-24 lead. The Colts wound up winning two of the three bouts that followed, securing a spot in the state tournament for Cedar Cliff, while Spring Grove’s bid fell just one step short.

In what felt like the blink of an eye, the 2015-16 York-Adams League basketball regular season has come and gone.

With that, we now head into the league tournament. The top eight boys’ and girls’ teams will begin their quests to earn league titles this weekend, needing three victories over the course of seven days to secure the honor.

Any time you have a league tournament, you’re sure to wind up with several intriguing match-ups. This year is no different. Here’s a look at each of the eight quarterfinal showdowns in both the boys’ and girls’ brackets.

DALLASTOWN — While the luster of having two undefeated teams facing off to end the regular season was gone, the final dual swim meet between York-Adams League Division I rivals Dallastown and Red Lion was still intense on Thursday.

After getting swept by Central York earlier in the week, the Lions were able to keep the meet with the Wildcat boys close early. But a Dallastown sweep in the 50 freestyle gave the boys’ team a cushion that was stretched out by standout Spencer Hill moments later.

Hill won the 100 butterfly, coming within a half second of breaking the pool record in the process. By the time the 400 free relay teams hit the pool, the meet was all wrapped up.

When the final score of the West York-York Suburban girls’ swimming meet was revealed on Thursday night, West York’s swimmers, who were gathered alongside the pool, erupted in loud cheers.

The Bulldogs didn’t win the meet, but they rallied from 10 points down to forge a 47-47 tie and earn a share of their first York-Adams title.


Q&A: York Tech coach Charlie Troxell

Posted: February 4, 2016 in Football



Each year, it seems a number of York-Adams football head coaching jobs become available after the final whistle of the season has blown.

Unfortunately, it also seems as if York Tech is an annual participant on the coaching carousel.

This year is no exception. The Spartans hired a familiar name to lead the program in an effort to bring some much-needed stability to the position.

Julia Sutton had 13 points to lead Dallastown. Jordyn Kloster had 13 to pace Northeastern.

On Wednesday night, however, the two foes’ wrestling match got pushed to the back burner to celebrate something even bigger. Before the match, the Red Lion wrestling program celebrated its 50th anniversary, complete with a social, an alumni celebration and then the match to cap it all off.

For a team that faced relatively little adversity all year long, the Spring Grove Rockets’ wrestling season will now hinge on how well they can bounce back from a tough defeat.

The fifth-seeded Rockets were handed a 47-18 loss against No. 4 Exeter Township in the District 3-AAA quarterfinal round on Tuesday night at Exeter, forcing them into the consolation bracket. Now, in order to qualify for the state tournament, Spring Grove must win its next two matches on Thursday. The Rockets will open against No. 9 Cocalico. A win there will move the Rockets to the next round against the loser of the Cumberland Valley-Cedar Cliff contest. CV is the No. 2 seed and Cedar Cliff is the No. 3 seed.
