Gettysburg at York College men's basketball

Folks, we’re getting into some rarefied air here.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the York College men’s basketball team is on a run of historic proportions.

For the first time in the 49-year history of the program, the Spartans have started a season at 13-0.

They’re one of just four unbeaten teams in all of NCAA Division III men’s hoops. That covers more than 400 schools.

WRIGHTSVILLE — In a match in which every bout finished with six points being awarded to either visiting West York or host Eastern York, it came down to one point.

Eastern York vs Dover girls' basketball

Eastern York girls’ basketball standout Hannah Myers, who was closing in on 1,000 points for her career, was certainly feeling some anxiety.

Pressing a little more than she normally would recently, Myers had her sights set on reaching that goal in the second game of Rotary Club of Eastern York County Annual Holiday Basketball Tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 27, at Eastern York High School.

Robert Griffiths boy's basketball tournament

YORK — Speed and athleticism were the keys that helped the York Catholic High School boys’ basketball team dismantle previously undefeated Danville, 61-34, Wednesday night at York Tech.

The Fighting Irish (4-2), the defending champions of the Robert H Griffith Holiday Classic, lost some talent from last year, but it didn’t look like it vs. Danville, setting up a rematch in the final Thursday against Bethlehem Catholic.

“They played pretty good half-court defense, so we had to work, but I felt like this was the best game that we played so far,” Catholic coach Blaine Claiborne said. “We just want to win every game that we step on the court. My guys, we have fun, but we just try to take care of business.”
