GLEN ROCK — There’s a lot to be excited about for the Susquehannock girls’ basketball team.

Guard Jayla Galbreath can knock down shots from outside the arc. Forward Jaden Walker has a nice blend of inside-outside game. So too does Anna Mahan. Tyler Williams has a knack for finding loose balls and rebounds. And Taylor Tannura gives it her all on the defensive end every night.

EMIGSVILLE — It’s safe to say that the Central York girls’ basketball team wasn’t feeling too great Friday evening.

Entering the final quarter with a seemingly comfortable 11-point lead on Dallastown, the Panthers suffered an unlikely melt down. The Wildcats outscored Central 18-6 in the final frame to claim a one-point upset victory.

DALLASTOWN — For some reason, West York girls’ basketball coach Darrell Wildasin wasn’t worried when one of his standout players, Angie Hawkins, was lying down near midcourt.

Injuries haven’t been especially kind for the Bulldogs this year. Freshman star Mackenna Hoffman separated her shoulder in a loss to Susquehannock a month ago, ending her season.

Then at the end of practice Monday, another injury caused Wildasin to scramble to replace freshman standout Alayna Harris in the lineup.



The Christian School of York rolled to a 39-24 girls’ basketball triumph over West Shore Christian Academy on Thursday.

Kathryn Larson and Bailey Stauffer poured in 13 points each to lead the Crusaders. The Crusaders (9-2) jumped out to a 16-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back.

DOVER — In a match-up featuring two of the best girls’ basketball teams in the York-Adams League Wednesday evening, it was a lesser-heralded sophomore who stole the show.

With Eastern York playing a triangle-and-two defense on Dover standouts Rayah and Rajah Fink, and the Eagles doing something similar with Golden Knight standout Hannah Myers, there was ample opportunity for role players on both sides to step up.

Fortunately for Eastern coach Brad Weaver, one of his came through in a big way. Katie Lehman, who entered the night having scored just 49 points all season, poured in 12 off of four big 3-pointers.
