Coach Tony Miller’s Spring Grove wrestling program has long succeeded on the mat.

The Rockets are a traditional York-Adams League power, with nine Division I titles since 2008,

Miller, however, is concerned with more than just wins and losses. He also puts his efforts behind worthy causes that benefit the school district and community.

Northeastern vs Delone Catholic during Bobcat Tip-Off

It’s no big secret that tickets to Northeastern boys’ basketball games have become hot commodities in recent years.

It looks like that trend will continue for the 2017-2018 season.

That should come as no big surprise, given the success of the Bobcats’ program in the past couple of years.

92-year-old recalls West York's first championship

For a 92-year-old man, Don Peterson still gets around pretty well.

When he walks for an extended period of time, he needs a walker to aid him. When he’s just milling around his apartment at Normandie Ridge in West Manchester Township, however, Peterson does just fine without any assistance.

Coming into the season, there were plenty of expectations riding on the shoulders of the Dallastown boys’ basketball team.

The Wildcats were coming off a promising 2016-17 season, when they made the District 3 Class 6-A playoffs and finished 14-9. Most of that team was returning.

However, before the 2017-18 campaign could begin, Dallastown was handed a pair of personnel blows because of injuries to key players. Seniors Da’Trail Albert and Brandon McGlynn are both sidelined indefinitely, with Albert recovering from a torn ACL and McGlynn dealing with post-concussion symptoms.

For being just five days into the 2017-18 high school basketball season, the York-Adams League Division I boys’ basketball battle between Dallastown and Central York on Tuesday, Dec. 12, felt as close to a playoff atmosphere as you can get this early in the season.

The student sections from both schools were lively, the gym at Central York High School was packed and both teams knew there was plenty on the line.

When it came down to the play on the court, however, it was the Panthers who nearly went wire-to-wire with the victory, prevailing 70-58 to improve to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in D-I. The Wildcats are 1-2 and 0-1.

New Oxford vs. Susqy

High school basketball games in March are normally quite different then they are in December.

That’s something that both coaches from the clash between York-Adams League Division II rivals Susquehannock and York Suburban understand.

The Warriors, a team that won the District 3 Class 5-A title before advancing to the PIAA Class 5-A semifinals last March, and the Trojans, a team that qualified for the PIAA Class 4-A playoffs, certainly expect to see marked improvement as the 2017-18 seasons progresses.
