York Catholic High School has a rich athletic history filled with success on different levels across multiple sports.

From the state championship boys’ basketball teams of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, to the highly-acclaimed girls’ basketball teams over the past 15 years, to the state champion boys’ cross country teams of the mid-1980s, the school has become synonymous with athletic success.

The talented athletes and skilled coaches deserve most of the credit for that success, but one other person also deserves some recognition, longtime athletic director Rick Luckman.

EMIGSVILLE — Former Central York boys’ volleyball coach Brad Livingston had a saying about how his team prepared for every season — you don’t want to peak too early.

Seems like this year’s Panthers squad is heeding that message.

Playing well enough to win every league match this season, the Central players knew they would have to step it up a bit when they played host to four-time reigning PIAA Class 2-A state champion Northeastern in their regular-season finale.
