For the past several years, Northern York athletic director Gerry Schwille has sat down with members of the Northern York School Board about a potential move from the Mid-Penn Conference into the York-Adams League.

None of those talks, however, have ever progressed nearly as far as they have now. Monday night, Schwille and district superintendent Eric Eshbach held a general information meeting at the middle school to lay out some of the reasons for the potential switch.

EMIGSVILLE — Sometimes you wake up and know that the day is going to be a good one.

That was definitely the case Thursday for Northeastern boys’ swimming standout Drew Wilson.

Seeded first in the 200 freestyle, an event that he won at last year’s York-Adams League Boys’ Swimming Championships, Wilson felt great moments before the evening session was about to begin Thursday during Day 1 of the league meet at Central York.
