With the District 3 basketball playoffs kicking off in less than a week, there’s plenty of excitement in the York-Adams area.

There are 23 area programs who made the field (boys and girls), and more than half of them have earned top-four seeds in the draw.

In a bit of a change, the local schools are among the favorites in the big-school divisions — at least according to the power ratings used to determine the seedings.

Drama was hardly a factor in the quarterfinal round of the York-Adams League basketball playoffs.

Of the eight games contested, just one — Delone Catholic vs. York Suburban girls — finished with a margin of victory in single digits. The Squirettes’ 41-36 victory over the Trojans was the exception in a weekend full of blow outs. There was a victory of 30-plus points, a couple 20-plus results and several that came in the teens. But, very little excitement down the stretch.

Those results showed that there seemed to be a divide between the top four teams and the rest of the pack on both the boys’ and girls’ side of the playoffs.

Cramped. Crowded. Uncomfortable.

Those were some of the words that were sometimes used to describe the old gymnasium at West York High School, especially on big game nights when large crowds would show up.

A new era has come to the school, however, with Monday’s official opening of a brand new gymnasium that resides just a few feet away from the old facility.

A large crowd visited the new arena Monday night when West York played host to Gettysburg in a York-Adams League Division II boys’ basketball battle, and they generally gave the new structure positive reviews.

PHOTOS:West York hosts Gettysburg for first game in new gym

With all the fanfare surrounding the inaugural night of West York’s new gym, Senior Night and a chance for the boys’ basketball team to clinch a York-Adams League playoff berth, there wasn’t going to be any problem getting the Bulldogs pumped for Monday’s game.

The concern was channeling that excitement in a positive manner, rather than having the West York players getting over-hyped and having that negatively impact the team.

That needn’t have been a concern.
