In a matter of a few weeks, Kelsie Weaver’s future changed completely.

The West York High School graduate was all set to play NCAA Division II softball for Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia.

Then she was contacted by the head coach from Morgan State University, Larry Hineline, asking her if she was committed to any school.

Weaver had committed to Wheeling Jesuit but had not signed an official letter of intent.

So Hineline came to Ocean City, Maryland, in late July to watch Weaver play with her AAU team, the Pa. Ball Hawks.

Hineline apparently liked what he saw and made Weaver an offer to the NCAA Division I program, which she happily accepted.

“Wheeling was about five hours from where I live, and it was really important for my parents to be able to see me play,” Weaver said in explaining her switch to the Baltimore school, which is about an hour’s drive from her home. “Distance was a really big thing. And it’s always been my dream to play Division I. And I always wanted to move to Baltimore after college. So it’s a blessing. It’s really crazy the way it all worked out.”

Morgan State is an historically black university, a fact that Weaver is embracing.

“That didn’t bother me at all. I love the city, and there’s so many colleges around there, and I want to be part of that environment. I was looking for that culture change, so it’s going to be fun.”

Weaver was a standout catcher at West York, twice earning all-state first-team recognition and finishing her career with 96 hits. She plans to continue catching at Morgan State, which finished 8-30 overall last year, including a 7-10 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

She said the Wheeling Jesuit head coach, Kelli Williams, understood her decision to switch schools.

“She was really nice about it,” Weaver said. “She was disappointed, but she wanted what was best for me.”

Weaver’s father, Rob, is very supportive of his daughter’s change of heart.

“Their coach made us a great offer,” Rob Weaver said in an email. “… We are so happy all her hard work has paid off and she has met her career goal/dream to play D-I softball.”

Kelsie Weaver plans to major in psychology and minor in criminal justice at Morgan State, with the hopes of possibly working for the FBI one day.

“I’m really excited,” she said. “Moving day is next weekend. It all came together really quickly.”

Other D-I commitments: Weaver is not the only York County athlete to recently make a commitment to a Division I school.

York Suburban boys’ lacrosse standout Collin Mailman made his announcement on Tuesday on his Twitter account.

“Truly blessed to say I’m going to be a Drexel Dragon,” he said.

Mailman, who will be a senior at Suburban this season, is a multi-sport standout. On the football field, the 6-footer was the second-leading receiver in the York-Adams League a season ago with 47 catches for 976 yards. On the lacrosse field, he had 35 goals and 14 assists as a midfielder, earning All-York Adams League honors.

Drexel’s lacrosse team was 7-8 overall last season and 3-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Mailman helped Suburban finish 9-6 and earn a District 3 playoff berth last spring.

Another York County standout also has accepted an offer to Drexel.

Dallastown girls’ soccer defender Ali Shick announced earlier this summer (also on Twitter) that she’s going to be a Dragon.

Shick helped Dallastown tie for the York-Adams Division I championship. Drexel finished 7-9-3 overall last season and was 4-3-2 in the CAA.

Two other York County girls’ soccer standouts also are going to Division I schools — Central York defender Kennedy Little (Elon) and Central York midfielder Briana Hackos (New Jersey Institute of Technology).

Elon, like Drexel, plays in the CAA, and it went 5-12 overall and 1-8 in the conference. NJIT finished 3-13-2.

Little and Hackos helped Central tie Dallastown for the York-Adams Division I title. The Panthers went on to win the York-Adams League Tournament.

Delone Catholic players celebrate during the Squirettes’ PIAA Class AA first-round state softball game vs. Philadelphia Academy Charter School on

Delone Catholic players celebrate during the Squirettes’ PIAA Class AA first-round state softball game vs. Philadelphia Academy Charter School on Wednesday at York College. Delone won the game, 6-0. (DAWN J. SAGERT —

On Wednesday, Delone Catholic’s softball team finished what it started on Monday.

There was little or no drama in the completion of the first-round state Class AA state playoff game. Delone Catholic shut out Philadelphia Academy Charter, 6-0, to secure a berth in Thursday’s quarterfinals.

The District 3 champion Squirettes will take on District 2 champion Holy Redeemer, of Wilkes-Barre in the next round at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Lebanon Valley College. Holy Redeemer beat District 4 champion Wellsboro on Wednesday, 3-2.

Delone (19-4) opened a 4-0 lead in the first inning on Monday before a thunderstorm rolled through York College and caused the umpires to suspend the game.

When action resumed on Wednesday at York College (Tuesday was also a washout), the Squirettes tacked on two more runs in the second inning and then turned things over to pitcher Cassie Rickrode and her defense.

Delone collected seven hits in the game, with four of the hits, including both doubles, coming on Monday. Delone packed its other three hits into the third inning on Wednesday while going hitless in its other four at bats.

“We won the game, but we didn’t hit,” Squirettes’ head coach Don Smith said. “We had one of these (suspended) games before where we didn’t play well when we picked it up in the second inning. I don’t know why.”

Delone didn’t need to crush the ball the way that Rickrode was pitching and the way the defense was playing behind her. Delone committed just one error.

The junior right-hander held the visiting Chargers to three hits, all singles. Rickrode had a no-hitter going for 3 2/3 innings before Philadelphia Academy Charter’s Riley Walker broke up the bid by stroking a 3-1 pitch into left-center field.

Rickrode struck out six and walked two against the District 12 runner-up.

“It was definitely nice to know we had four runs when we started today,” she said. “It seemed like we were starting a new game, but we weren’t.”

Despite not allowing any runs, Rickrode saw room for improvement.

“My pitches need to be sharper and harder for (Thursday),” said Rickrode, who wasn’t pleased with her off-speed pitch. “Same with the hitters. All of us need to hit more as we go on. This year, we’ve hit the whole way through the lineup, and I’ve relied on my defense a lot.”

Delone’s Karley Coleman collected two hits in the unusual two-day contest. Rickrode and Mikayla McCleaf drilled doubles for the York-Adams Division IV champion, with McCleaf’s two-bagger in the first inning scoring two runs.

Walker, the Philadelphia Academy Charter pitcher, allowed just two runs in Delone’s final five at bats, and both runs were unearned.

Having passed their first test rather easily, the Squirettes’ goal of a state title remains alive. The quarterfinals are the furthest a Delone softball team has advanced in states.

“We’re hoping to make school history and go as far as we can ” Rickrode said. “It’s always an exciting bus ride going up to these games.”

Asked after the game what he knew about Holy Redeemer, Smith said: “Not a thing. We knew more about Wellsboro than we knew about Holy Redeemer.”

Smith knows one thing for sure: His team has the potential to make a deep run in the state playoffs.

“They have the ability to do it, but, of course, if you lose one game, you’re done,” he said.

With a lot of Monday afternoon’s PIAA state softball contests getting moved back a day because of impending weather, Delone Catholic coach Don Smith was a bit surprised to find out his team’s game was not among them.

After winning the District 3-AA title last week, the Squirettes were rewarded with a first-round contest not far from home. But when a heavy storm blew through Hanover in the early afternoon, Smith wasn’t optimistic about things.

As it turned out Smith was right on with his skepticism. While the weather gave some brief reason for optimism, allowing Delone to take the field against Philadelphia Academy Charter at York College’s softball field, the decent weather didn’t stick around.

The Squirettes held the Chargers off the board in the first inning before erupting for four runs in the bottom of the frame. But just as Delone was about to take the field to begin the second, a bolt of lightning prompted a delay. Not too much later the skies opened with rain — enough to force the game to be suspended. The two squads will pick up where they left off Tuesday back at York College at 4:30 p.m.

“There’s not much you can do about it,” Smith said. “They postponed a lot of the games before they even started. And, gosh, with the way it rained in Hanover at 1:30 … I mean it poured. But the field was pretty good (when we got here).”

While the two clubs prepared for the start Monday, there was sun in the sky. But dark clouds quickly took over — perhaps an ominous sign for a Philadelphia Academy side that will have to make another three-hour drive to York on Tuesday.

“It’s not (so much frustrating) for us,” Smith said. “They have three hours to drive.”

When the Chargers do come back to York Tuesday, they’ll do so knowing that it won’t be easy knocking off Delone. The Squirettes took the lead early when leadoff hitter Shayna Rider singled to center. After a sacrifice bunt moved her to second, Shelbee Holcomb drew a walk. Squirette pitcher Cassie Rickrode followed with a line drive double to left that scored Rider. Mikayla McCleaf followed with a two-run double that made it 3-0. Karley Coleman capped her team’s big inning with a run-scoring single.

Then the rain came and the teams eventually scattered to their buses. The mood was obviously pretty festive in the Delone Catholic bus, with music blaring throughout the 45-minute delay.

“We’re still pretty pumped,” Rider said. “Even though the rain is kind of crappy, we’re still feeling pumped. There was lot of music (in the bus) and lots of dancing.”

It’s hard to believe that almost 10 months ago, the 2014-15 high school sports season kicked off with fall sports summer practices.

Now, here we are, almost at the beginning of summer, with only a few select teams left from the York-Adams League competing for state supremacy as participants in PIAA tournaments.

Remaining are the Northeastern boys’ volleyball team, which is in the Class AA semifinals, and the Delone Catholic softball team and the Spring Grove baseball team, which both begin state tournament play on Monday.

Each team’s path to the state playoffs was different.

Northeastern’s Brandon Arentz spikes the ball during the York-Adams League boys’ volleyball championship match against Central York recently.

Northeastern’s Brandon Arentz spikes the ball during the York-Adams League boys’ volleyball championship match against Central York recently. The Bobcats have not dropped a set in a regulation, five-game match this season. Dawn J. Sagert –

The Bobcats are two-time reigning state champs and cruised through every opponent this season, having not lost a set in a regular, best-of-five match. The Squirettes rolled through the District 3-AA softball tournament as the top seed, defeating their three opponents by a combined score of 22-4. And the Rockets clinched a state berth in the Class AAA baseball field by reaching the finals of the District 3 playoffs, before suffering an extra-innings loss in the title game to Donegal.

Still, their goals all remain one in the same — win state gold.

So, here is what each of the three remaining local teams will face the next time they take to the diamond or the court this week.

Northeastern: Words can do little to describe just how dominant the Bobcats have been throughout the course of this season. Having not dropped a set all year, and now back in the AA semifinals, Northeastern simply lived up to the lofty expectations it set for itself by winning the last two state titles.

Thus far, the Bobcats haven’t given up more than 16 points in a set in either state match.

Now, awaiting the Bobcats in the semifinal round is Holy Redeemer. Tuesday’s match will pit two of the top-four AA ranked teams in Pennsylvania against each other, with Northeastern coming in ranked No. 1 and the Royals No. 4 by the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association. Much like the Bobcats, Holy Redeemer enters having not dropped a set all tournament. The Royals, the District 2 champion, knocked off District 3 runner-up Lancaster Mennonite on Saturday, 25-20, 25-21, 25-11, to set up the showdown. By comparison, Northeastern beat Lancaster Mennonite in the district title match, 25-17, 25-18, 25-18.

At stake in Tuesday’s meeting is a shot at keeping an impressive run alive for Northeastern and a shot at redemption for Holy Redeemer. Should the Bobcats win, they’ll play for their third straight state AA championship on Saturday, which would be the program’s sixth all time. As for the Royals, they’ve seen their previous two seasons come to an end at the hands of Northeastern, both in the state semifinals.

Tuesday’s match is set for 5:30 p.m. at Exeter Township High School.

Delone Catholic: When the Squirettes hoisted the District 3-AA trophy on Thursday, they became the first York-Adams softball team to win multiple district crowns, ending a 16-year drought between the team’s first one in 1999. They also became the first Y-A team to win a district title in softball since South Western won the AAAA championship in 2006. (Susquehannock won PIAA titles in 2007 and 2008 but did not win the District 3 title in Class AAA in either season).

Delone enters the state tournament boasting an impressive 18-4 record. Like so many strong teams, the Squirettes don’t just have one or two players who carry the load, but an entire lineup, regardless of grade. Manager Don Smith’s group consists of freshmen all the way to seniors and they all contribute in big ways. It was freshman Marlee Lackey that broke open Thursday’s championship game against Kutztown with a bases-clearing double and it was junior pitcher Cassie Rickrode who tossed a complete game to close out the 10-3 victory.

On the other side from Delone on Monday will be District 12 runner-up Philadelphia Academy Charter. Unlike the Squirettes, the Chargers won’t have the momentum of winning their district championship game on their side. Instead, PAC begins its state tournament off the heels of a dreadful 13-0 defeat in five innings to Conwell-Egan in its district championship game.

Last year, Delone edged Conwell-Egan 7-6 in nine innings in the Squirettes’ state playoff opener.

Tuesday’s first-round game is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. at York College.

Spring Grove: If there was ever a consolation to losing the District 3-AAA title game in extra innings, the state tournament can be just that. The youthful Rockets, who have just one senior, gave up six runs in the top of the eighth inning in Thursday’s game against Donegal to lose 11-5.

Still, Spring Grove enters the AAA field as District 3’s No. 2 seed with a strong 18-7 record and averaging 5.4 runs of offense per game.

Opposite from Spring Grove on Monday will be Pottstown.

The Crimson Tide are fresh off of winning their first District 11 title since 1998, with a 6-3 win over Blue Mountain. Pottsville is led by a strong core of seniors, Eli Nabholz, Travis Blankenhorn, Ty Painter and Connor Hinchcliffe, who have each made substantial impacts in helping the Crimson Tide reach the state playoffs for the first time in 17 seasons. And, more likely than not, the Rockets will probably have to face Nabholz on the mound, who sports a perfect 10-0 record this season for Pottstown. Blankenhorn, meanwhile, has already committed to Kentucky and is projected as a future Major League Baseball draft pick.

First pitch in Monday’s game is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Walter Stump Stadium in Pine Grove.

The Delone Catholic softball team is back in the District 3-AA championship game for a second straight season.

In the process, the Squirettes garnered a bit of revenge.

Delone downed Susquenita 4-1 on Tuesday in the semifinals in Willow Street. That is the same Susquenita team that denied Delone a district championship a season ago with a 5-2 victory over the Squirettes in the district title game.

The win also assured Delone of a state playoff berth for a second straight season.

The top-seeded Squirettes improved to 17-4. Susquenita, the No. 4 seed, finished at 17-6.

Delone will now face No. 2 seed Kutztown (18-5) in Thursday’s championship at 4:30 p.m. at Lebanon Valley College. Kutztown won the other semifinal over No. 3 seed Brandywine Heights, 6-5. Brandywine finished 15-7.

Kutztown is a traditional softball power, with seven overall district titles to its credit. Delone, meanwhile, has won one district crown, with that title coming in Class A in 1999.

Cassie Rickrode put on a stellar performance for Delone. She pitched a complete-game four-hitter, striking out four without a walk. The only run she allowed was unearned. She also finished 3-for-4 at the plate, including a double and a triple. She drove in one run and scored two.

Katie Laughman (RBI double), MiKayla McCleaf (RBI single) and Lauryn King (RBI single) drove in Delone’s other runs.



Delone Catholic is the last York-Adams softball team left standing.

The Squirettes rolled to a 8-0 triumph over Upper Dauphin on Thursday in a District 3-AA quarterfinal contest in McSherrystown.

Top-seeded Delone improved to 17-5, while No. 8 seed Upper Dauphin finished at 12-10.

The Squirettes move to Tuesday’s semifinals and will face No. 4 seed Susquenita (17-5) at 4:30 p.m. at Garrett Park. The Blackhawks downed down No. 5 seed Pequea Valley 3-0 in their quarterfinal contest on Thursday. Pequea Valley finished 13-8.

Cassie Rickrode pitched a two-hit shutout for Delone, striking out five and walking one.

Shelbee Holcomb had two hits, including a double, and had two RBIs to lead the Squirettes. Katie Laughman homered for Delone.

The Squirettes had just four hits, but were helped by seven walks and three Upper Dauphin errors. Delone, meanwhile, played errorless ball.

Twin Valley 3, Littlestown 2: At York College, the seventh-seeded Lady Bolts couldn’t hold on to a 2-0, sixth-inning lead in a District 3-AAA quarterfinal battle. Littlestown’s season ended at 18-5. No. 2 seed Twin Valley improved to 20-5. Mckenzie Somers pitched a complete-game six-hitter for Littlestown, striking out two and walking one. She also had two of Littlestown’s five hits. Twin Valley scored two in the bottom of the sixth to tie it and scored one with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to walk off with the victory.


EMIGSVILLE — It is usually a good thing for a team to be highly seeded when the District 3 softball championship brackets are officially released.

That hasn’t been the case recently for the girls from Central York, however.

Despite a run of York-Adams League success, the Panthers have not exactly found any cupcakes when it comes to district play. A season ago they were ousted in the quarterfinals. Then on Tuesday afternoon, the Panthers squared off against a Chambersburg squad that is probably a bit better than its No. 10 seeding would indicate.

As the No. 7 team in the 16-team field, the Panthers got off to a rough start. After allowing a run early in the first inning, the home team was a mere strike away from ending the threat with minimal damage. But a two-run double by Chambersburg’s Leah Hunt proved to ultimately be a deciding blow, and Central (20-3) saw its season come to a close after a 5-1 setback in a first-round clash.

Overall, it was a very tough day for York-Adams teams on Tuesday in district play. They finished the day 1-7, and in those seven losses, the area teams scored just seven runs. Littlestown was the only local winner.

Chambersburg (14-7) will face Daniel Boone, a 1-0 winner over Dallastown, in the quarterfinals Thursday.

“We allowed the one to (score), but we were able to work our way to two outs,” Panthers coach Shane Walker said. “We were trying to get out of the inning, but they came through there.”

Tough luck has seemed to follow the Panthers throughout district play in recent years. Despite being favored in terms of seeding, the draw in District 3 is no picnic.

“Whenever you get to this point and you start playing in districts, everybody’s good,” Walker said. “These teams don’t make mistakes. When you look at the power rankings, one through 11 could, I think, beat anybody on any given day. All of those teams are solid.”

The start of the contest was probably the mirror opposite of what senior pitcher Kayla Resh was expecting when she took the mound. A single to center was followed by an infield single that ultimately ended with the Trojans finding themselves with runners on second and third after a couple of late throws. Lily Nolan followed with a sharp single to center to scored a run. Nolan advanced to second on the throw home. After back-to-back strikeouts, Resh was just a strike away from getting out of the jam. But she left a pitch over the plate that Hunt crushed it into the gap for a two-run double.

The Chambersburg lead grew by a run in the second after a throwing error at first with two outs allowed Maggie Myers, who was hit by a pitch to start the inning, to score.

Central was able to get a bit of a rally going in the third off Trojan starter Laken Meyers. Meyers, who induced 10 groundball outs during seven innings, gave up a single, followed by an error, to begin the frame. After getting the next two batters, she walked Kayla Caruso to load the bases for clean-up hitter Kelsey Wisner. A wild pitch allowed a run to score to make it 4-1, but Wisner was only able to bounce out weakly to Meyers for the final out.

“We just couldn’t come through,” Walker said. “And they made some solid plays.”

The Panthers would only get more than one runner on base one more time in the contest, that coming in the fourth. Back-to-back singles by Briannah Dobson and Kelsey Shifflett started a rally, but Dobson was caught trying to advance to third on Shifflett’s infield single.

That set the stage for Meyers, who retired the final 10 batters she faced to earn the victory. The right-hander struck out only three, but allowed just four hits and one unearned run.

“Their pitcher threw exceptionally well today,” Walker said. “I actually think that both pitchers had a very good game. I think we gave up some uncharacteristic outs that, when put in a game like this, you just really can’t afford.”

After Shifflett was retired to end the game on a pop-up, the Panthers solemnly gathered on the middle of the diamond for one last post-game chat as a group. It’s a bunch that includes eight seniors. Only Rachel Butler and Dobson will return as starters from this year’s club next spring.

“I’ve been around a lot of these girls since they were 10 years old,” said Walker, who got a bit choked up when talking about his team. “They’ve shown great leadership. They’ve been very consistent throughout the year and they really bought into all of the stuff that we were doing. And they led the way. There’s no other dugout that I would rather be in.”

While seeing those eight players graduate next month will be tough for Walker, he’s pretty confident that next year’s club won’t be lacking.

“Our JV team went undefeated this year,” he said. “I think they had 297 runs and gave up 19 all season. So there’s a really strong group there. And we have a freshman pitcher that’s exceptionally good coming up next year. I think we’re at a point with the program where it’s kind of a re-loading more than a re-building. And I have every expectation that if those kids can show half the maturity that our seniors did this year that we’ll be good.”


Littlestown 10, Big Spring 5: At Littlestown, the home team used an eight-run second inning to grab the District 3-AAA first-round win. Kaitlin Yealy (three hits, homer, three RBIs, two runs), Jill Gauthier (three hits, two RBIs, one run), Lindsay Snyder (three hits, one RBI, one run), Mackenzie Somers (three hits, triple) and Amanda Dyson (two hits, double, two RBIs, three runs) led Littlestown’s 15-hit attack. Somers also went the distance to get the win on the mound, striking out five. The No. 7 seed Lady Bolts improved to 18-4. No. 10 seed Big Spring finished 14-7. Littlestown will face second-seeded Twin Valley (19-5) in the quarterfinals at 4:30 p.m. Thursday at York College. Twin Valley beat No. 15 seed Susquehannock on Tuesday, 15-4, in five innings.

Greencastle 5, Dover 1: At Greencastle, the 11th-seeded Eagles fell victim to the sixth-seeded Blue Devils in District 3-AAA action. Dover finished 11-8 on the season, while Greencastle now stands at 14-7. Abigail Lower had two of Dover’s five hits, along with the team’s only RBI.

Bishop McDevitt 12, Kennard-Dale 0: At Fawn Grove, the eighth-seeded Rams suffered a six-inning mercy-rule loss to the ninth-seeded Crusaders in a District 3-AAA battle. K-D’s season ends at 15-4, while McDevitt improves to 15-6. K-D was outhit 14-4, and no one for the Rams had more than one hit.

Conrad Weiser 4, Spring Grove 0: At Conrad Weiser, the 13th-seeded Rockets hung tough with the fourth-seeded Scouts in a District 3-AAA game, but a lack of offensive production proved pivotal. Spring Grove’s season ended at 10-11, while Conrad Weiser moved to 19-3. Conrad Weiser plated all of its runs in the third inning. Both teams had four hits. Julia Wivell pitched a complete game for Spring Grove, striking out five. Kasey Bentley had two doubles for Spring Grove.

Upper Dauphin 2, Fairfield 1: At Upper Dauphin, the Green Knights suffered a tight loss in a District 3-AA meeting. The ninth-seeded Knights finished at 10-10. Eighth-seeded Upper Dauphin moved to 12-9. Lexi Weaver pitched a three-hitter for Upper Dauphin, striking out 11. She didn’t allow any earned runs. Courtney Harbaugh pitched a complete-game four-hitter for Fairfield, striking out three. Gena Eiker and Megan Whalen tripled for Fairfield.

Daniel Boone 1, Dallastown 0: At Daniel Boone, the 15th-seeded Wildcats gave the second-seeded Blazers a tough battle in a District 3-AAAA contest, but ultimately fell. Dallastown finished 13-6, while Daniel Boone improved to 20-2. Dallastown was outhit 9-1. Bekah Slattery fanned 13 for Daniel Boone. Jaelynn Harbold pitched a complete game for Dallastown, striking out four and walking one.

Twin Valley 15, Susquehannock 4: At Twin Valley, the 15th-seeded Warriors dropped a five-inning mercy-rule decision to second-seeded Twin Valley. Susquehannock finished at 10-8. Twin Valley improved to 19-5.
