York Catholic vs. Trinity

The Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association (PVCA) recently released its list of 2017 all-state performers.

It should come as no surprise that West York and Delone Catholic are well represented. Both teams made state playoff runs, with the Squirettes advancing all the way to the PIAA Class 2-A title match.

While the Squirettes (four) and the Bulldogs (two) had their fair share of honorees, so too did York Catholic and York Suburban, two teams which failed to make the state playoffs. Both of those schools also had two all-state selections each.




Lauren Reichard

Eastern York High School graduate Lauren Reichard excelled on the volleyball court this season on the NCAA Division I level.

Reichard, a 6-foot junior middle hitter for Georgia Southern, was recently named first-team All-Sun Belt.

Reichard hit .342 to lead the league and ranked second in the conference in blocks. She averaged 2.53 kills and 1.18 blocks per set for the year. She tallied double-figure kills in 14 matches and recorded five or more blocks in 12 contests.

The beauty of the West York girls’ volleyball team this season was not in the fact that the Bulldogs had one singular superstar to rely on.

Instead the York-Adams League champs were so dominant due to the cumulative effect of many different standouts playing together as a unit.

One could point to the two West York seniors — outside attacker Kate Tate and setter Trilby Kite — as potential Player of the Year candidates. Tate finished second on the team with 263 kills while Kite dished out 814 assists for the season.

READING — Sometimes in sports, you just get beat.

West York girls’ volleyball coach Joe Ramp can live with that.

It’s something that he and the rest of his Bulldogs team will have to live with after their PIAA Class 3-A state semifinal with Allentown Central Catholic at Exeter Township High School on Tuesday, Nov. 14.

In a classic match between two of the top-four teams in the state in 3-A, it was the Vikettes, the District 11 champions, who found a way to beat the Bulldogs in five memorable games, 23-25, 25-19, 25-19, 24-26, 15-13, to advance to Saturday’s championship match.

Revenge may be too harsh of a term to use.

The West York girls’ volleyball team, however, is certainly looking to make amends for last year’s PIAA Class 3-A semifinal loss.

After the Bulldogs knocked off Pope John Paul II on Saturday, Nov. 11, in the state quarterfinals, the York-Adams League champions will return to the state semifinals for a second year in a row.

Delone Catholic vs York Catholic girls' basketball

Basketball aside, St. Francis College in Brooklyn checked all the boxes that York Catholic senior Kate Bauhof was looking for in a college.

Wanting to be in a big city, she will soon be in the nation’s largest. Not to mention that New York City is her favorite city.

Regardless of the result, it’s always a great accomplishment to play on the final Saturday during the District 3 girls’ volleyball playoffs.

For two of the three York County teams still alive — York Catholic in 2-A and West York in 3-A — the opportunity was there to claim a district title on Saturday, Nov. 4.

For the other (Central York in 4-A), it was a chance to keep the season alive.
