Most athletes have gone through a few down periods in their sports careers.

While it’s always preferable to taste victory, sometimes personal struggle is necessary in order to grow.

That theme was hit on several times Monday evening at San Carlos Restaurant in York when the Quarterback Club of York held its annual awards banquet.

Emma Leik, a standout cross country runner at York Suburban High School, has had to muster the ability to overcome a serious obstacle — a condition called compartment syndrome. Leik, who helped lead the Trojans to a District 3-AA title in 2014, was tested mentally and physically by the condition that was diagnosed just before her senior season.

DALLASTOWN — It seems like more and more high school girls’ volleyball players are playing the sport all year long.

But not every girl who takes to the court has to go that route to be successful.

Such was the case Sunday afternoon for the second annual York-Adams League Senior All-Star Match at Dallastown High School.

MECHANICSBURG — It usually takes a young team a little time to find its legs and get going.

For the York Catholic girls’ volleyball squad, that time was pretty much the entire regular season.

Battling high-level teams such as Hanover, Bermudian Springs, Berks Catholic, Trinity and Delone Catholic wasn’t great for the team’s overall record. But the experience of playing those outfits definitely has proven invaluable come playoff time.

Teams have prepared for these moments throughout the summer and into the early fall.

That’s right – the PIAA playoffs are finally here.

And while many teams around the York-Adams League fought hard to qualify for the pinnacle tournament of the season, only a handful of them remain in the sports of soccer and volleyball.

Let’s take a look at who is left and what their outlook is prior to Tuesday’s first-round clashes.

DALLASTOWN — The District 3-AAA quarterfinals have been a bit of a stumbling block for the Central York girls’ volleyball team in recent years.
