Susquehannock girls' basketball

SHILLINGTON — For the Susquehannock girls’ basketball team, the allure of just being in the state playoffs was eventually replaced by a feeling that it could win the whole thing.

That feeling got stronger after the team booked a spot in the PIAA Class 5-A quarterfinals last week.

Before that, there was a sense of satisfaction in just being in the tournament and winning two games for the first time in program history. As the teams dwindled, however, and the Warriors found themselves left among the elite teams in the state, a belief started to emerge that they could bring home a state championship.

NEW HOLLAND — Starting a game with a scoring drought is not usually a prescription for success during the PIAA basketball playoffs.

The York Catholic girls’ basketball team got away with it once, but the Lady Irish couldn’t pull it off again on Tuesday night.

Especially under a lot of pressure.

Susquehannock and York Catholic won’t face terribly long trips for their PIAA state girls’ basketball semifinal games on Tuesday.

In fact, both teams will play at sites within District 3.

York-Adams League All-Star boys basketball

It was all offense all the time in the annual York-Adams League Senior All-Star Basketball Games on Sunday afternoon at West York High School.

The senior players kept the scorekeeper and scoreboard operator busy from opening tip-off to closing buzzer.

The teams in the boys’ game racked up a total of 268 points, while the girls’ teams accumulated 176 points. The two guys’ teams knocked down a combined 31 3-point shots.

Spring Grove vs Northeastern boys' basketball

One more win.

For the Northeastern boys and Susquehannock girls, that’s all that stands between them and a much-coveted berth in a PIAA Class 5-A state basketball championship game.

That’s the good news.

York Catholic vs Eastern York girls' basketball

READING — Kate Bauhof has been showcasing her red-and-blue basketball shoes ever since her York Catholic girls’ team claimed the District 3 Class 3-A title at Hershey’s Giant Center earlier this month.

Symbolizing fire (left shoe, red) and ice (right shoe, blue), her foot ware was an indicator of the junior standout’s play on Sunday afternoon when the Lady Irish faced unbeaten Saint Basil Academy in a PIAA Class 3-A quarterfinal at Santander Arena in Reading.

York Catholic vs Central York basketball semi-finals

HERSHEY — It’s pretty much expected that when teams get to the second round of the PIAA girls’ basketball playoffs, they’ll face a team loaded with talent.

That’s exactly what District 3 champion York Catholic was prepared for Thursday night when it battled Pine Grove in a PIAA Class 3-A contest at Milton Hershey High School.
