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.

After he made a final touch in the last home dual meet of his career, Central York swimmer Jesse Tate took some time to reflect.

“This (Central’s natatorium) is a place I’ve been coming to for a long time,” Tate said after the Panthers defeated Red Lion on Senior Day, 112-71. The Central girls’ team also bested Red Lion, 101-79. “You almost make the place your home. Finishing that last leg (of the 400 freestyle relay) felt good. Do it for your team and represent Central.”

DOVER — The York Suburban and Dover swimming teams began the post-blizzard part of their schedules on Thursday with two highly competitive meets.

The monster snowstorm may have cut into class time and training time for the York-Adams Division II athletes, but it didn’t harm their competitiveness. Both teams swam with a passion from the opening whistle of the afternoon’s opening event, the 200 medley relay, to the final touch in the last event, the 400 freestyle relay.

It could be weeks until we’re done feeling the aftermath of winter storm Jonas.

Some people are still trying to shovel themselves out from the two-plus feet of snow that dumped on York County over the weekend. For the most part, however, streets are clear and normalcy should return soon.

Wrestling bouts put on hold: On Tuesday, two major wrestling events were postponed. To start, the Y-A League Division I title will be on the line when South Western finally travels to rival Spring Grove. Both teams are unbeaten in division competition. That match was postponed on Tuesday until Wednesday, Jan. 27.

Both Spring Grove coach Tony Miller and South Western’s Nate Murren were hoping the match would be held on Tuesday, as scheduled.

However, the local high school sports scene could be one entity that will suffer from the aftereffects of the blizzard for the foreseeable future.

The Dallastown swimming teams took a huge step on Thursday to ensure that their dynasties will remain intact for at least one more year.

The Wildcats defeated Central York in pair of York-Adams Division I meets. Dallastown won the boys’ meet, 100-86, and captured the girls’ meet, 128-57. The Wildcat girls are bidding for a 12th consecutive division crown, and the boys’ team is going for its eighth consecutive division title.

“It was more about winning the meet, not about times today,” Dallastown senior Spencer Hill said. “It was more about Dallastown coming in (to Central) and keeping the streak going.”
