Central York vs Cumberland Valley D-3, Class 6-A girls basketball Semifinal

The girls’ basketball divisional races in the York-Adams League were exciting last year.

There’s a good chance, however, that the upcoming season may top that.

Many of the same teams that battled down to the wire for divisional supremacy a season ago figure to be among the contenders again this season.

That fact presents a really big question: Will history repeat itself with Central York (Division I), Susquehannock (D-II) and York Catholic (D-III) prevailing again, or will the deck get reshuffled, with contenders such as Dallastown (D-I), Dover, West York, Eastern York (D-II) or Delone Catholic (D-III) earning titles?

Ruman concludes his play-by-play career on WOYK after 18 seasons and more than 900 football and basketball games.

York Catholic vs. West York

(Editor’s note: This is another in a series of stories leading up to the start of the York-Adams League winter sports season).

A year after leading the New Oxford girls’ basketball team to the York-Adams League championship game, James Kunkle may find that repeating that feat this season will be a significant challenge.

Now the head coach at West York, Kunkle is trading a pair of battles against Division I and state-caliber teams such as Central York and Dallastown for new ones against state-caliber squads such as Susquehannock, Dover, Eastern York and York Suburban in Division II.

New Oxford vs. Susqy

(Editor’s note: This is another in a series of occasional stories leading up to the start of the York-Adams League winter sports season.)

If there was one intangible that you would think the Susquehannock girls’ basketball team wouldn’t need to worry about in 2017-18, it would be chemistry.

Yet, that was exactly what the team’s players and head coach Dave Schreiner discussed during York-Adams League winter sports media day on Saturday, Nov. 11.

When former York Catholic girls’ basketball junior varsity coach Mike Englar was hired to lead the girls’ varsity squad at New Oxford over the summer, Irish head coach Kevin Bankos had a position to fill on his staff.

It didn’t take long for a consensus candidate to emerge to take over Englar’s spot. Ashton Hirsch, who is Kevin’s daughter and formerly Ashton Bankos, was already familiar with the program after being a varsity assistant the past couple of years.

Central York vs Cumberland Valley D-3, Class 6-A girls basketball Semifinal

(Editor’s note: This is the second in an occasional series of stories leading up to the start of the York-Adams winter sports season).

When the Central York girls’ basketball team takes the floor for the first time this season, so much about it will look the same.

But, it might be the absence of one notable player that will stand out the most.
