Central York at Dallastown swimming

For the past 30 years, you could count on two things with Dallastown High School swimming — that it would perform at a dominant level in the York-Adams League and that Rich Howley was the coach behind it all.

Sunday, at the end of this year’s team banquet, Howley announced that he was retiring as coach of the Wildcats, along with his position as a technology education teacher at the middle school.

“Basically, it was for my family and time for my family,” Howley said about his reason for retiring. “I lived and breathed with swimming and the kids at Dallastown, both in the classroom and in the pool, but now my family and changing dynamics, as far as my kids getting older and wanting to do things, and I want to be part of that.”

As winter storm Stella barreled through Pennsylvania on Tuesday, it put a freeze on the PIAA basketball playoffs.

The second round of the state tournament was supposed to take place Tuesday and Wednesday nights, but all of those games were postponed until Thursday. It also forced this weekend’s quarterfinal round to be condensed into just Saturday, instead of Friday and Saturday.

That was three years ago, when Harnish was just a freshman.

She’s back with the high school team this year after spending the past two seasons swimming exclusively for her club team at the York YMCA.
