HANOVER — Jenn Elder used to play basketball at Central York.

Volleyball, too.

But after suffering four concussions (three in basketball), Elder didn’t receive medical clearance to continue playing either one of those sports.

She needed to find another athletic activity.

“My neurologist said: ‘Why don’t you play tennis?'” Elder said.

HANOVER — Yvonne Peters-Washington’s performance in the York-Adams League Class AAA girls’ tennis singles title match was unlike anything that her coach, Brad Andrews, had witnessed all season.

“That’s the best I’ve seen her play,” Andrews said after the Central York senior won the championship with a 6-0, 6-1 victory over New Oxford’s Dagney Markle. “Her backhands were right on point and her serve, today, she was going after it (ace or service winner) instead of just getting it in. Plus her forehand is a weapon. She played like the type of player I heard she was when I found out she was coming here (to Central)”
