Through the first week of the Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League playoffs, both York County high school teams are still alive, but won’t see the ice for a while.

In the most recent game, No. 3 seed Susquehannock was defeated in the semifinals of the Tier 3 bracket by top-seeded MSMCC, 4-3, on Wednesday night. Alan Reider, Bryan McGillin and Matthew McGillin each scored for Susquehannock, while Reider added an assist and Timothy Schwensen had two assists.

SPRING GROVE — Spring Grove boys’ basketball coach James Brooks only waited about 80 seconds on Monday night against Greencastle-Antrim before calling a timeout.

At the time, the Rockets only trailed 5-0, but the play was poor. When he met his five starters on the floor about 15 feet onto the court, he refused to let them sit on the bench. This was a meeting between him and them.

WRIGHTSVILLE — There’s no question that the York Catholic girls’ basketball program is one of the best throughout District 3 over the past 15 years.

The evidence is clear from the banners commemorating District 3 and PIAA titles inside of the Fighting Irish gym.

Winning that much for that long has sometimes skewed expectations from fans and parents. Winning is a given, but doing so while dominating is something fans have come to expect.

Winning consistently, however, is not easy, and doing it while being compared to the other great York Catholic teams is even harder.

It’s not much a secret that the York Suburban girls’ basketball team did not get off to the kind of start they had hoped for this season.

Coming off a campaign in which the Trojans advanced all the way to the PIAA state playoffs, coach Jess Barley and her crew were expecting to have a shot at replicating or exceeding last year’s success.

York Country Day senior Jordan Ray is a standout on both the football gridiron and basketball hardwood.

He drew more than his fair share of college interest in both sports. Ray, however, elected to go the football route, committing to play for Hampton University next fall as a preferred walk-on. He made the announcement on his Twitter page last Friday.
