Central York vs North Allegheny PIAA Boys' Championship Volleyball

In sports, it’s typically the stars who garner the most of the attention.

While the Central York boys’ volleyball team certainly had its share of stars during a banner 2017 season that was capped earlier this month with a PIAA Class 3-A state title, the Panthers’ success was fueled by every single player who stepped on the court.

The team featured big hitters, such as Cole Johnson, Braden Richard and Ben Seebold, but also got big contributions from setter Carter Luckenbaugh and libero Zak Kakos. All five of of those players were recently named to the All-District 3 Class 3-A Teams.

York Catholic va. Mennonite

Like most talented 17-year-old high school basketball players, Melik Martin is weighing his playing options for after high school.

Unlike most kids his age, however, Martin is running out of time.

Despite his young age, Martin just graduated from York Catholic last month and now has just a few weeks left to make his decision on where he wants to continue his basketball career next year. Unlike most kids in his shoes, however, he isn’t looking at colleges for his immediate future. Instead, he’s decided on the prep-school route, with his list of schools rapidly narrowing.

STATE COLLEGE — There wasn’t a passionate meeting with a desperate cry to get better.

There wasn’t a specific moment when everything clicked for the Dallastown baseball team.

The Wildcats simply just got better. Actually, they started playing up to the level they were capable of playing.

Sitting at 3-4 and coming off a loss to rival Red Lion early in the regular season, Dallastown was at a crossroads. A team full of talent from top to bottom, with three NCAA Division I recruits and players with loads of experience at the varsity level, the Wildcats had a decision to make — continue to be average or start playing up to their potential and achieve something great.

Dallastown vs State College in PIAA Class 6A baseball semifinals

In the three days between Dallastown’s PIAA Class 6-A semifinal win on Monday and Friday’s state championship game, Wildcats’ head coach Greg Kinneman admitted that there was little for his baseball team to improve on.

It wasn’t a cocky statement, meant to indicate that his team was too good to get better, although with the way Dallastown has played over the last several weeks, it’s hard to imagine the team could actually improve.

Instead, Kinneman’s remarks reflected a sentiment that, at this point in the year, if the Wildcats don’t possess the necessary ingredients to become state champions, three days of practice won’t enhance those chances.
