New Oxford vs. Susqy

GLEN ROCK — Through the first three games of the season, the West York girls’ basketball team was averaging nearly 60 points per game.

On Tuesday, Dec. 19, against York-Adams League Division II rival Susquehannock, the Bulldogs struggled to get halfway to their average.

While West York no doubt missed several very make-able shots in the second half, the Warriors defense refused to budge. Led by a 12-point, five-block game from Jaden Walker, Susquehannock held the visiting Bulldogs to just one field goal over the final 16 minutes.

Reading at Central York girls' basketball

EMIGSVILLE — A new season always brings a certain amount of change to a high school athletic program.

No program stays the same, normally because of injuries, graduation or improvement by younger players.

The Central York girls’ basketball team is certainly not exempt from that reality.

Coming into the season, there were plenty of expectations riding on the shoulders of the Dallastown boys’ basketball team.

The Wildcats were coming off a promising 2016-17 season, when they made the District 3 Class 6-A playoffs and finished 14-9. Most of that team was returning.

However, before the 2017-18 campaign could begin, Dallastown was handed a pair of personnel blows because of injuries to key players. Seniors Da’Trail Albert and Brandon McGlynn are both sidelined indefinitely, with Albert recovering from a torn ACL and McGlynn dealing with post-concussion symptoms.

New Oxford vs. Susqy

High school basketball games in March are normally quite different then they are in December.

That’s something that both coaches from the clash between York-Adams League Division II rivals Susquehannock and York Suburban understand.

The Warriors, a team that won the District 3 Class 5-A title before advancing to the PIAA Class 5-A semifinals last March, and the Trojans, a team that qualified for the PIAA Class 4-A playoffs, certainly expect to see marked improvement as the 2017-18 seasons progresses.

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?
