DALLASTOWN – High school all-star games are meant to be both fun and exciting for players, coaches and fans alike.

While some other sports fail to get that message, there was no doubt that those feelings were embraced during the York-Adams League Senior Girls’ Volleyball All-Star contest Sunday afternoon at Dallastown High School.

The West York girls’ volleyball team faces a big hurdle if it hopes to reach the PIAA Class 3-A state championship contest.

West York will face a familiar foe at a nearby site on Saturday.

There will be plenty on the line — namely a berth in the PIAA Class 3-A girls’ volleyball state semifinals.

The Bulldogs will battle Palmyra at 11 a.m. Saturday in a quarterfinal contest at Hempfield High School in Landisville, Lancaster County. For West York fans, that will only be a journey of about 25 miles to the northeast.

The Bulldogs and the Cougars will meet for the third time this season.



For the second year in a row, Frostburg State volleyball junior Naya Cheatem has been selected as a First Team All-Capital Athletic Conference honoree.

The recognition was announced by the conference Tuesday.

The Central York High School graduate was also a member of the first team last season.

EMIGSVILLE — Teams that capture a district championship are often given a reward when entering first-round play in the PIAA state playoffs.

For the District 3 Class 2-A champion Delone Catholic girls’ volleyball team, that certainly was the case.

Not so much for Red Lion, the District 3 Class 4-A champion.

The Squirettes had little trouble with an outclassed Bishop McDevitt squad that came out of District 12 Tuesday night at Central York High School. Delone cruised to an easy 25-6, 25-7, 25-8 triumph.

Winning a District 3 championship has its advantages, beyond just earning a trophy and wearing gold medals.

A trio of district champions from the York-Adams League will reap the rewards of winning those titles on Tuesday evening.

That’s when PIAA state playoff action starts in girls’ volleyball, boys’ and girls’ soccer and field hockey.
