GLEN ROCK — The West York girls’ volleyball program doesn’t exactly have the same type of storied history as Tuesday night’s opponent, Susquehannock.

But this year’s Bulldogs team is hoping to change that.

After last winning a York-Adams League (or YCIAA) title way back in 1986, Coach Joe Ramp’s club is halfway toward ending that drought.

Ramp, however, knows it won’t be easy after winning a clash with a banged-up Warrior club at Susquehannock High School. The Bulldogs won the first two games and survived a rally by the home team to improve to 7-0 in York-Adams Division II division after a 25-19, 25-20, 21-25, 25-22 triumph.

It’s not often that a team defeats the Warriors — who have a couple state titles and numerous district title banners on their walls — and sounds and looks disappointed afterward.

“We did not perform well tonight at all,” Ramp said. “It was more of a survival-like mode tonight. Susky played very well, digging us left and right. They had a little bit bigger heart tonight, but somehow we found a way to win.”

Playing without Abigail Bentz, who suffered an ankle injury a few weeks ago, the Warriors nevertheless gave the visitors all they could handle. Brittany Fitzgerald (11 kills) and Laura Savin (nine kills) combined to put balls away several times after lengthy rallies.

“Sometimes, when your best player is out, the girls can sit around and think ‘what are we gong to do?,'” Susquehannock coach Rob Marrison said. “We have nothing to lose, so it’s time for the girls to step up, take some swings and be brave, and I think we did that.”

Ramp felt fortunate that the Warriors were without their standout for the night.

“Bentz is a very solid player,” Ramp said. “I had the opportunity to coach her in club one year and she’s enthusiastic and a very smart player. She makes that team go.”

As disappointed as Ramp sounded after a brief huddle with his club afterward, he knows that a championship-type squad can battle through lulls in play yet still come out victorious.

“It’s more of us, as a coaching staff, looking at our girls and knowing what they’re capable of doing,” he said. “What they displayed tonight was two different gears.”

After winning the first two games in somewhat comfortable fashion, the Bulldogs trailed throughout much of Game 3. The visitors, however, were able to forge a 21-all tie late and appeared to be on track for a sweep. But a four-point run by the home side closed out that set, denying West York.

The Bulldogs seemed to rebound. They stormed out to a 12-5 lead in Game 4, but were unable to put things away. Susquehannock’s defense kept balls in play for long rallies, which seemed to frustrate the Bulldog side.

But senior Kari Lankford stepped up for two of her seven kills on the night to score points 24 and 25 in Game 4 to cap off the victory.

“This was fun to watch,” Marrison admitted. “There were some really cool rallies in there tonight and it’s exciting when both teams are playing well defensively.”

Shaina Robinett led the Bulldogs with 15 kills, while teammate Dixie Miller added 10 kills and setter Meryssa Love dished out 35 assists. Kelly Franz led the Warriors (4-3 Division II) with 21 assists while Amber Sweitzer added 12.

Now, with one complete round through the eight-team Division II cycle, the Bulldogs are sitting pretty. Being there at the end would not only break a long drought, but also fulfill a long-sought goal that the team set in the preseason.

“This group of girls — and there are six seniors on this team — and they’ve wanted it since Day 1,” Ramp said. “They went undefeated when they were sophomores at the JV level. Their goal is the keep pushing. They see the light at the end of the tunnel. The question is ‘are they hungry enough for it?’ and that’s a question that wasn’t answered tonight.”

RED LION — While weekend tournament play isn’t typically indicative of how good a girls’volleyball team is, a particular result in the Wildcat Invitational finals kind of ticked off the Red Lion girls.

Back then, the Lions were dominated 25-14 by eventual champion Central York. So when those two teams — each with perfect records in York-Adams Division I play — squared off Thursday evening at Red Lion High School, Coach Heather Schoemaker’s gang was hoping to make a statement.

And so they did.

After staving off a late Central rally to capture Game 1 by a 25-23 clip, the Lions rolled out to an 11-1 advantage in Game 2 to cruise to a 2-0 lead in the match with a 25-21 triumph.

A hiccup in Game 3, in which they were dropped decisively, 25-11, the home team reversed course in Game 4 to claim a 25-16 triumph and close out a 3-1 victory.

“Hands down that was the best match we played all season,” said Schoemaker, whose team improved to 6-0 in Division I. “The girls just brought it together and had a good practice and they felt good about today.”

Perhaps the focus was the result of some extra determination that started a few weekends ago at Dallastown.

“We really wanted to defeat them,” said Red Lion outside hitter Lindsey Blevins. “They beat us in the finals (at the Wildcat) so we had extra motivation.”

Schoemaker could tell her team was ready from the onset.

“I think having the home-court advantage helps us,” she said. “Being home and having the crowd that we had helps us. But I think we just maintained our focus and being mindful that we have to start off the games strong right away.”

Blevins had perhaps her most dominating match of the season. The sophomore led the Lions with 13 kills to go with 10 digs. She was able to tally them from pretty much all over the court. Many of those kills came in the first two games when her team set the tone. The fact that they came from a sophomore in such a big match may surprise some, but not Schoemaker.

“From Lindsey, I’ve seen that maturity, and she can continue to bring it,” said the Red Lion coach. “She definitely brings the team energy.”

Central coach Nate Ocasio came away impressed with Blevins’ play.

“That’s the best that I’ve seen her play,” Ocasio said. “She played really well and had a hell of a night.”

Blevins, however, wasn’t alone in her efforts. Fellow sophomore Lauren Enfield slammed down 10 kills, middle Jenna Hevner tallied eight kills to go with six blocks and setter Brooke Daugherty dished out 33 assists.

“It’s this whole team,” Schoemaker said. “It’s not just one individual. If you look at our stats, it’s everyone bringing the kills. So for us it’s nice to have more than one person to depend on.”

Central has a lot of the same make-up as the Lions in regards to size and talent. The visitors, however, were unable to really string together much momentum — except in Game 3 — as the Red Lion serving threw the Panther offense out of whack.

“They won the serve-and-pass battle,” Ocasio said. “And that’s just the bottom line.”

Andrea Quartey led Central (5-1) with 12 kills, while Emily Poole added six kills and five blocks. Allison Rife tallied six kills and eight digs, while setter Julia Terpak dished out 26 assists.

MANCHESTER — The addition of Gettysburg into the York-Adams League this season has really made for an interesting landscape in Division II girls’ volleyball.

Reigning Division II champion York Suburban is still loaded, West York is quickly becoming the team to beat, Northeastern has the talent to win on any given night and Gettysburg and Eastern York are perennially strong outfits.

Then throw in 2013 Division I champ Susquehannock into the mix and the coaches really are honest when they say there are no easy nights.

Such was the case when the Bobcats hosted the Warriors Thursday night. While Coach Mike Hoffman’s Northeastern squad is still trying to find its groove, they battled through three tight contests.

In the end, the Warriors’ unique blend of skill and experience were too much. Led by a strong night from outside attacker Abigail Bentz (16 kills, 11 digs) and middle hitter Britney Fitzgerald (nine kills), Susquehannock was able to pull of a 25-19, 25-17, 25-20 sweep.

Susquehannock improved to 3-1 in the division, good for a second-place tie with Suburban. West York leads the division at 4-0. Northeastern fell to 1-3.

“This was good tonight,” said Warrior coach Rob Marrison. “Northeastern was able to keep the ball off the floor, which put a lot of pressure on us, and we didn’t collapse.”

Marrison’s club was able to pull away in all three games because of a strong service run each time. Leading 19-18 late in Game 1, the Warriors were able to use a five-point run, fueled by the serving of Laura Savin (two aces). In Game 2, it was tied at 10-10 when Fitzgerald ripped off a six-point run.

Those moments were big for Marrison and his team because of some uncharacteristic mental collapses he’s seen from his club a few times already this season. Suburban was able to pull out a five-game match last week partially because of some self-inflicted miscues.

“We are continuing to try to work on our mental game,” Marrison said. “In the York Suburban match, Suburban played phenomenally well. We had an awful lot of errors in that match and that’s one thing we’re trying to work on.”

While they didn’t play perfect, Susquehannock was able to squash Northeastern rallies throughout much of the night behind Bentz, Fitzgerald and sophomore middle Gabby Ogude. Their play at the net really paid dividends on the big points, and that’s something that Hoffman is hoping his team can start to emulate sooner rather than later.

“We got off to a really slow start,” Hoffman said. “And tonight they did start to click, but we really need to make some adjustments. Overall I have to feel pretty positive about it because we were in every game. And they never quit.”

Seemingly ahead by a comfortable 21-10 margin late in Game 3, Marrison subbed out some of his starters to get some experience for his younger players. That experiment, however, didn’t turn out great. The Bobcats — showing that never-quit attitude — were able to close to within 23-19. After a timeout, the starters were back in and three points later the match was over.

Madison Rhinehart led Northeastern with five kills to go with eight digs, while Bayle Sowers tallied four kills and five digs. Setter Whitney Brown dished out 15 assists.

Susquehannock setter Kelly Franz racked up 34 assists to go with 11 digs. Libero Kerrie Defelice led the Warrior defense with 25 digs.
