Spring Grove vs Garden Spot softball

GRANTHAM — Spring Grove’s softball team turned a negative into a positive, and that’s the reason the Rockets are one victory away from their first-ever District 3 title.

Since losing to Central 2-1 in 10 innings in a game that decided the York-Adams Division I title, the Rockets have recorded three straight impressive victories to reach the district Class 5-A championship game.

SPRING GROVE — Spring Grove pitcher Hailey Kessinger admitted she was a lot more nervous going into Tuesday’s District 3 softball game than she was heading into regular-season outings.

Central York vs Kennard-Dale in the York-Adams softball championship

NEW OXFORD — All season long, the Central York softball team didn’t get too high as it continued to rack up win after win, en route to claiming the York-Adams League Division I title.

The program isn’t a stranger to success at the league level, so this year’s team wouldn’t allow itself to get too caught up in the victories that came on an almost daily basis. The Panthers had bigger goals, including winning the league championship for a third consecutive season.

Central York vs Dallastown softball

GLEN ROCK — Yielding a two-out run usually will get a team in trouble.
