SPRING GROVE — The Kennard-Dale wrestling program has come a long way in a short time.

After years of being perennial doormats in the York-Adams League, K-D coach Mike Balestrini has sensed a sea change with how his wrestlers have prepared, both before and during the season.

All the hard work and efforts paid off handsomely for the program, which captured its first ever York-Adams Division II title this season. The Rams also ventured to a place they’ve never been before: the District 3-AAA Team Tournament.

K-D had a chance to extend their dream season even further against Division I champion South Western Thursday night at Spring Grove High School in the district consolation quarterfinals.

With several wrestlers battling illnesses, the Rams stayed close with the Mustangs throughout. But a couple close losses, combined with three forfeits, all but did in Balestrini’s squad, which dropped a 40-25 decision.

South Western wasn’t able to find a way to use the momentum from that victory to advance to the PIAA tournament for the first time in school history. Facing Gov. Mifflin, with a state berth on the line, the Mustangs from the Berks County League claimed a 38-26 victory in the consolation semifinals, ending South Western’s season as well.

“This was huge,” Balestrini said. “This was by far the best team we’ve had because they’re a team. When one guy is down another guy steps up. And vice versa.”

Rams start hot: The Rams started out hot against the Mustangs, taking the first three matches of the night to take a 16-0 advantage. The lead grew to 22-6 after South Western had to forfeit at 285. The Mustangs, however, rebounded and showed their might at the lightweights to eventually forge a 22-22 deadlock.

K-D got a 4-3 decision at 126 from Mike Bracey in a battle with Gavin Smith to take a 25-22 lead, but the Rams had to forfeit two more matches (at 132 and 152) while also losing bouts at 138 and 145.

Optimism: While the night didn’t end the way Balestrini and his team would have liked it, the veteran Ram coach had nothing but optimism concerning the current and future state of his program.

“We’re working a lot harder in a lot of different situations,” he said. “And the kids have responded. Now we have some seniors here that we’re going to hate to lose, but we have some young kids too. A lot of young kids. But these kids stepped up, worked hard and they really have deserved everything that they’ve got.”

Chris Hurt (decision at 160), Nathan Stewart (decision at 170), Elliot Stauffer (major decision at 182), Harley Eagle (pin at 195), Cody Gladstone (forfeit at 285) and Bracey all scored victories for the Rams.

South Western was able to claim those three forfeits at 113 (Chase Mowery), 132 (Owen Wherley), and 152 (Gage Thomas), as well as a pins by Seth Janney at 220 and Ben Doll at 106 to prevail.

“We probably could have had a couple more wins that we should have had, but we didn’t and that’s the way it goes,” Balestrini said. “South Western is a tough team. And for it to come down to us and South Western as the last two teams from the whole league, I’m proud of that.”

Mustangs fall: The Mustangs, however, found themselves quickly in a big hole against Gov. Mifflin in the consolation semifinals. Mifflin scored back-to-back pins at 170 and 182, a decision at 195 and then another forfeit at 220 to rack up a 21-0 lead.

The York-Adams Division I champs rallied back behind Janney, who bumped up to 285 in a battle against Mifflin standout heavyweight Keith Miller. Janney fell behind 2-0 early before rallying to claim a 7-4 decision.

Janney typically would have wrestled at 220, but because Scotty Dickmyer, the team’s normal 285 anchor, couldn’t go Thursday, it tied Coach Nate Murren’s hands a bit.

“Scotty couldn’t go tonight,” Murren said. “So when you’re missing a class that you normally have and instead of giving up three or maybe even winning three, you give up six. And a forfeit in this type of setting … you almost can’t win.”

The momentum picked up after that. Doll and Mowery scored back-to-back falls before Derek Wilson earned a major decision at 120 to cut the deficit to 21-19.

The two teams traded decisions at 126 (a 1-0 win for Mifflin’s Zach Scheetz) and 132 (an 8-3 victory for Wherley) to make it 24-22. Mifflin, however, scored back-to-back major decisions at 145 and 152 to push the lead to 32-22 with two bouts left.

Despite a 20-10 major decision from Thomas at 152, South Western’s fate was quickly sealed when Mifflin’s Ben Maack earned a pin in 59 seconds.

“This (result) didn’t really surprise us too much,” Murren said. “We knew we had to wrestle and it just didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.”

OTHER WRESTLING

Central York 59, Northeastern 13: The host Panthers won 11 of the 14 bouts to finish off their York-Adams Division I schedule with a win. Dylan Chatterton (138), Tyler Colon (160), Colton Morris (285), Rusty Novelas (126) and Xavier Musti (132) had pins for the winners. Blaine Yinger (220) accounted for the Bobcats’ lone pin.

RED LION — At some point, all dynasties must end.

However, for the Dallastown swimming program, now is not that time.

Both the girls’ and boys’ teams captured York-Adams League Division I titles on Thursday, swimming to 119-51 victories over Red Lion in both meets. That marks the 11th straight crown for the girls’ team, while the boys’ team recorded its seventh in a row.

For one team in a swimming program to sustain that level of success is an impressive feat, but for both teams to seemingly have a stranglehold on the division is something that is to be greatly admired. Dallastown coach Rich Howley believes that the competition has a lot to do with how hard his team must work for each win.

“It doesn’t happen without great competition,” he said. “My hats off to the whole league, all the teams … We knew how good they were, so it takes us to rise up to the occasion.”

While there was a lot at stake in both the boys’ and girls’ meets, the girls’ meet pitted two teams that entered the evening 4-0 in division competition, with the winner of Thursday’s meet claiming the outright title, while the loser was sent home empty-handed.

And the meet couldn’t have gotten off to a better start for the Dallastown girls (7-1 overall, 5-0 Division I). Right out of the gate, the 200 medley relay team of Anna Hess, Jena Woods, Mikaelie Gonzalez and Erica Wise set a new Red Lion pool record with a time of 1 minute, 51.59 seconds.

“I said it after the Central (York) meet that medleys are nice,” Howley said. “It got the ball rolling and helped out quite a bit.”

The 200 medley relay victory was just the first of eight event wins for the Wildcats, who also won the 200 freestyle relay and the 400 freestyle relay, while also finishing 1-2-3 in the 100 freestyle.

Aside from being part of two of the three victorious relay teams, Hess also took home first place in the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke for Dallastown. Wise was the other big performer for the Wildcats, swimming to victories in both the 50 and 100 freestyle events.

Schaefer shines for Lions: There was one bright spot for the Lions (7-2 overall, 4-1 Division I). Senior Courtney Schaefer tied a school record, set previously by Morgan Pfaff, in the 200 freestyle in her last-ever race at Red Lion. It was a nice send off for the senior, who will swim for Georgia Southern University next year, in what was otherwise a tough day for the Lions.

“Morgan Pfaff is one the best swimmers, if not the best swimmer, to come through here,” Red Lion coach Chris Doemland said. “So for Courtney to do that was something special. Courtney has, throughout her career, just been an amazing swimmer and an amazing teammate, so she’ll have to go down as one of the best to ever do it.”

While Dallastown again reigns supreme in York-Adams Division I, all is not lost for the Lions’ girls team that took a major step forward after so many down years.

“Two years ago, the girls didn’t win a meet in our division,” Doemland said. “So, in a two-year span, to go from that to the right to swim for a championship was awesome.”

Boys’ meet: In the boys’ meet, much like the girls’ meet, the Wildcats opened with the 200 medley relay team of Noah Brockway, Grant Wertz, Spencer Hill and Braedon Erne setting a pool record, with a time of 1:39.06. That effort kick-started Dallastown (8-0 overall, 5-0 Division I) toward wins in 10 of the 11 events and prevented the Lions (6-3 overall, 3-2 Division I) from claiming a share of the league title.

The Wildcats won all three relay events and the only event that they didn’t win, the 500 freestyle, which was won by Red Lion’s Dylan North, they had swimmers finish second and third.

In his final regular-season meet, Brockway finished first in three events — the 200 medley relay, 100 back and 400 free relay. His strong performance helped the senior class cap off an undefeated York-Adams League record, one that he could only describe with one word.

“Special,” Brockway said. “I keep saying it’s special, but it is. To go undefeated, not many teams in athletics at the high school level can say that, for four years, they’ve gone undefeated in their sport, so it’s nice and a good accomplishment.”

By winning the very first event of the meet, York Suburban swimmers Carsyn Smith, Keelie Walker, Jenna Hufnagle and Madie Devaney set the tone for a championship-clinching night.

The Trojans’ foursome captured the 200-yard medley relay by a razor-thin six-hundredths of a second to help their team grab a 10-4 lead.

Suburban continued on to a 104-66 victory over West York to wrap up its first York-Adams Division II crown since 2010.

Both the Trojans and Bulldogs entered the meet at the Graham Aquatic Center with perfect 4-0 division records.

The Suburban boys, meanwhile, downed West York, 116-54, to complete a 4-1 Division II season.

“That was a bit of a surprise,” Suburban head coach Craig Brennan said when asked his reaction to the 200 medley relay. “I wasn’t anticipating the outcome of that race. It did get us fired up for every race beyond it.”

Devaney, a junior, was trailing on the final leg of the medley (the freestyle), but she made up the deficit and touched home just ahead of the West York swimmer.

“We really stepped up for that race,” Devaney said. “They (her teammates) put me in a good position, and I definitely had to bring it home.”

Devaney also brought it home three events later when she won the 50-yard freestyle.

“I was scared going into that 50, but at the end of the day, I just wanted to win,” she said.

Devaney delivered a winning time of 25.87 seconds.

“She talked about wanting to do some times,” Brennan said. “She had a very good week of work, and it showed in the meet today.”

Devaney also placed second to West York’s Maddi Stoner in the 100 freestyle and swam on the winning 400 freestyle relay team.

Carson Gross also stood out for the Trojans by winning the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle along with swimming on the 400 freestyle relay team.

West York’s Maelyn Elder recorded the best times in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke.

After coming in second to Dover four straight seasons, Suburban is the 2014-15 champion.

“All of us knew going in (to the season), it was going to be close,” Devaney said. “We worked really hard for that division title, and we weren’t letting someone else have it.”

Boys’ meet: Alex Patterson (200 freestyle and 500 freestyle), Aidan Fryar (50 freestyle and 100 freestyle) and Karl Schmittle (100 butterfly and 100 backstroke) each recorded two first-place finishes in individual events for the Suburban boys. Schmittle and Patterson were part of two winning relay teams.

The Trojans’ only league loss this season was a two-point setback to Susquehannock.

“Overall, we’re young,” Brennan said. “We graduate five seniors on both the boys’ and girls’ teams. We had some great step-up swims by some of our freshmen and sophomores today. I’m happy for our girls. There isn’t one (swimmer) who doesn’t put in the effort, top to bottom.”

West York’s Elder, Stoner, Taylor Hoover and Claudia Keller set a girls’ team record in the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:47.56.

Suburban’s Devaney, Gross, Megan Hunt and Anna Schmittle won the hotly-contested event by four-hundredths of a second, finishing in 3:47.52.

OTHER BOYS’ SWIMMING

Dover 103, Northeastern 79: At Dover, Jamie Kohler broke a school record in diving with 210.90 points to help the Eagles to a York-Adams Division II victory. Also for Dover, Casey Marshall took first in the 200 free and 500 free, Hunter Link won the 100 fly and 100 back and Brannon Boyd won the 200 IM and 100 breast.

Central York 130, South Western 53: At Central, the Panthers captured first in 10 of the 12 events to help them secure the York-Adams Division I victory. Individually for the Panthers, Jesse Tate won the 200 IM and 500 free, while Alec Peckmann won the 50 free and 100 back. Central improved to 4-1-0 in the division and 7-1-0 overall.

OTHER GIRLS’ SWIMMING

Dover 122.50, Northeastern 60.50: At Dover, the Eagles captured first in nine of the 12 events to help them secure the York-Adams Division II victory. Individually for the Eagles, Maddi Hetrick won the 50 free and 100 free, Allie Aspey won the 200 IM and 100 breast and Lindsay Brenneman won the 100 fly and 100 free. Dover improved to 3-2-0 in the division and 6-2-0 overall.

Central 122, South Western 64: At Central, the Panthers used a team effort in capturing the York-Adams Division I victory by securing first place in all three relay events, while picking up a total of 34 points between the three relays. For the Mustangs, Alison Sell took first place in the 200 IM and 100 breast. Central improved to 3-2-0 in the division and 6-2-0 overall.

Jeremy Jones has resigned as the head varsity football coach at York Suburban after two seasons.

 -

York Suburban is looking for a new head football coach.

Athletic director Chris Adams said Wednesday morning that Jeremy Jones has resigned from the position after only two years at the helm.

Adams declined to say why Jones stepped down. When reached by phone Tuesday night, Jones declined comment.

“We are going to be searching for a head football coach,” Adams said. “I’m not sure how soon we will be posting that position. I do not have a time line at this point. I have to meet with our superintendent and high school principal and we’ll put together a time line for when we’ll be posting it and what we’re looking for (in the next head coach).”

Adams said Jones met with the Suburban football players last Thursday to inform them of his departure.

“I have a lot of respect for Coach Jones. We wish him the best of luck,” Adams said.

Whoever the next Trojans’ coach is, that person will be the program’s sixth head football coach since 2006, following John Knowles (2001-2006), Bill Kerr (2007-2009), Craig Zortman (2010), Brian Freed (2011-2012) and Jones (2013-2014).

Background: Jones officially become the Trojans’ football coach on April 8, 2013, when the Suburban school board approved his hiring at a starting annual salary of $5,290.

A 1997 graduate of Wyalusing High School in northern Pennsylvania, Jones came over to York Suburban from West York, where he had coached for a decade, serving as the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator from 2008 through 2012. Jones still works full time as a physical education teacher at West York High School, which currently has a head varsity coaching opening in its football program.

Jones had taken over for Freed, who resigned in February 2013 after two consecutive 6-4 seasons with the Trojans, including back-to-back 5-4 seasons in York-Adams Division III.

In their first season under Jones in 2013, the Trojans posted a 5-5 overall record and 5-4 mark in league competition, finishing sixth in York-Adams Division III.

In 2014, Suburban started the season by losing their first three non-league games, then went 3-0 in league competition to pull back to .500 overall before finishing 1-3 down the stretch. The Trojans ended up with a 4-6 overall record and 3-3 mark in league play, tied with Eastern York for fourth place in Division II. Suburban allowed an average of 30.4 points a game last season, the sixth-most points of the 23-team York-Adams League. The average margin of defeat in those six losses was 38 points.

Statistically, the Trojans last season had the best passing defense (668 yards), second-best passing offense (1,769 yards) and were around middle of the pack in most other statistical categories.

Changing of guard in York-Adams League: As a result of Jones stepping down at Suburban, there will now be a total of six York-Adams League teams — roughly a fourth of the 23-team league — with new head coaches when the 2015 season begins in August.

The Spring Grove school board last week approved Kyle Sprenkle as the Rockets’ next football coach. West York athletic director Roger Czerwinski and Susquehannock athletic director Chuck Abbott said Monday their new hires will be on the school board agendas for approval when those respective boards meet next month. Dover athletic director Rich Leathery said Monday that the school is in the interview phase with candidates. And Delone Catholic athletic director Dave Lawrence said Wednesday the school has begun interviewing some of the roughly 15 candidates who applied for the Squires’ football post.

Now in his third year at Suburban, this will be Adams’ second time trying to find a new football coach. He was part of the group that decided on hiring Jones two years ago.

CPIHL Ice Hockey

Central York 7, Cumberland Valley 4: At York City Ice Arena, the Panthers scored six unanswered goals in the second period to pace their way to the win in Central Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 1 play. Brandon Linker and Anthony Tranchitella each had two goals for Central York (5-11-1). Linker also added two assists to complete his four-point night.

Carlisle 6, West York 2: At Twin Ponds West, the Herd scored three straight goals during the end of the first period and into the second period to knock off the Bulldogs in CPIHL Tier 3 action. West York (8-9-1) got goals from Dennis Kohadjda and Alan Reider as it closed out its regular season. The Bulldogs already qualified for the Tier 3 playoffs and will take on either Carlisle or McDevitt-Susquehanna Township-Mechanicsburg next Wednesday in the first round of postseason play.

MANCHESTER — When a team has three standout players, getting all of them involved is sometimes the biggest challenge.

The Dallastown Wildcats seem to have figured out an effective way to do just that through an exercise they run in practice — the five-pass drill. Not surprisingly, that drill is pretty much exactly like it sounds — five passes must be made before the offense can even think about shooting.

It’s pretty clear that the drill has helped the Wildcats get their big three of Amari Johnson, Katie McGowan and Debria Hendricks in sync.

Wednesday night against Northeastern, Dallastown was able to quickly move the ball around the Bobcat defense for scoring opportunities. Led by Johnson’s team-high 14 points, the Wildcats were able to leave Manchester with an impressive 47-30 non-league triumph.

“We are able to do it in games really easy because of that working on it in practice,” said Johnson, who collected 20 rebounds in the victory. “So, as the defense shifts we’re able to find a wide open shot.”

All three players finding touches early on in the game really helps to set a mental tone for the Wildcats, according to Johnson.

“It takes for all of our heads to be in the game,” she said. “And it takes for each and every one of us to pump each other up. We just can’t be about ‘me, me, me’ we have to be about ‘us.’ Because when we’re about ‘us,’ that’s how we win the game.”

Getting those touches doesn’t always translate into points. That was the case on many occasions on Wednesday, when the Wildcats struggled with their touch from the field (22-of-59, 37 percent).

Fortunately, the Dallastown defense was able to cause similar issues for the Northeastern offense. Standout Bobcat senior Payton Hauck (eight points) converted on just 3-of-19 shots during a rare off shooting night.

“We didn’t finish around the basket,” Northeastern coach Bill Novak said. “And that was tough because we had some easy ones that we needed to convert.”

The Wildcats pulled away in the second quarter with a 12-3 run that took place over the first seven minutes of the period. That stretched a 15-7 advantage into a comfortable 27-10 lead.

“(Northeastern) wasn’t hitting from the outside and they have hit from the outside throughout the year,” Dallastown coach Mary Manlove said. “And it was good for us that tonight they were cold and we were able to control the rebounding (50-27 edge for the game).”

Despite that, Novak’s side found a way to put together a 13-2 run to close to within six points (29-23) with 3:13 left in the third.

“I think we like doing that comeback thing,” Novak said. “We seem to try to do that a lot.”

McGowan (12 points) personally helped to break that run by scoring six points during a 10-3 Dallastown response, after which the home team was never able to recover.

“They came out (of halftime) strong,” Johnson said. “They didn’t want to lose and we didn’t want to lose either, but we were not prepared for how strong they came out. But in the fourth quarter we caught (fire) a little.”

Preventing lulls, such as the one in the third period, is something that Manlove most definitely wants to avoid in the future.

“We had a nice first quarter, but I think there is still plenty to work on,” she said after her team improved to 15-5. “We played a little sloppy, and credit to Northeastern for making us play a little ugly.”

While Hauck struggled with her shot, teammate Jordyn Kloster was able to pick up some slack. The forward finished with a game-high 16 points to go with 16 rebounds in the setback that dropped her team to 12-7.

“I think that we were a bit too worried about Payton, and that Kloster was able to kind of open things up a bit,” Manlove said. “Kloster played phenomenal.”

OTHER GIRLS’ BASKETBALL

West York 66, Bishop McDevitt 33: At Harrisburg, Emily Wood led the Bulldogs with 22 points, including four 3-pointers. Teammates Kari Lankford and Morgan Bamberger each knocked in 11 points. West York improved to 18-0.

Eastern York 60, Gettysburg 42: At Gettysburg, Leah Myers pumped in 21 points and Catherine Tillotson added 12 for the Golden Knights. Eastern trailed 11-8 after one quarter but used a 37-17 bulge in the middle two quarters to take control.

New Oxford 42, Spring Grove 20: At New Oxford, the home team didn’t score in the first quarter, trailing 5-0 after eight minutes. In the second period, however, the Colonials exploded for a 17-2 edge and never looked back. Jensen Sneeringer led New Oxford with 12 points, including three 3-pointers. The Colonials improved to 14-5 overall and 7-4 in York-Adams Division I.

South Western 59, Dover 33: At South Western, the Mustangs jumped out to a 33-18 halftime lead and cruised. Laykin Feeser led South Western with 21 points, while Kayleigh Thomas added 15. Rayah and Rajah Fink combined to score 17 of Dover’s 33 points.

Hanover 64, Fairfield 23: At Hanover, Soukaina Tracy recorded her 1,000th career point for the Hawkettes. Tracy finished with 23 points, while Emma Bell contributed 21 points for Hanover.
