HERSHEY — Central York sophomore heavyweight Michael Wolfgram tells himself that the District 3 Class 3-A wrestling competition is just another tournament.

It’s how he prevents himself from getting too psyched out by the bright lights, the large crowds and all the amenities that come along with competing at Hershey’s Giant Center.

At the beginning of the season, Red Lion wrestler Dylan Gurreri had relatively modest goals for his senior season.

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. The meeting also gave community members the opportunity to voice questions, comments or concerns. The potential change would be for the two-year cycle beginning for the 2018-19 school year.

Central York wrestling coaches Seth Beitz and Joe Musti were on the mat competing this past weekend at the East Stroudsburg Open.

Beitz, who serves as the team’s head coach, is only 25, but he isn’t far removed from his wrestling days at Penn State. Musti, meanwhile, is in his late-30s, so preparing to compete again was a tad more difficult for him.

If you’ve never been touched by the affliction of addicition, it’s easy to be dismissive.

It’s easy to lack empathy and understanding.

It’s easy to label the addicts as weak or somehow unworthy of our concern.

It’s easy to rationalize that the disease will never happen to me or someone I care about.

Well, addiction is not just restricted to the dark corners of our society. It’s not just limited to the poor or to urban areas.
