Everyone involved in the sport knows that.

Participation is down and forfeits are up.

Take last Thursday, Jan. 11, as just an example. It was a full night of York-Adams League competition. Results for nine matches involving 17 league teams could be tracked down. Those matches featured 47 forfeits, or more than five forfeits per match. In nearly 19 percent of the weight classes, the local teams didn’t field a competitor.

Dallastown vs. Delone Catholic

EMIGSVILLE — Basketball is played indoors, but don’t let anyone tell you that the weather can’t have an impact on the sport.

Many games this season have already been postponed because of inclement conditions outside.

The Dallastown-Central York girls’ basketball showdown on Wednesday, Jan. 17, was not one of the postponed encounters, but the weather almost certainly had an impact. The host Panthers did not play particularly well over the first three quarters and the visiting Wildcats built a 13-point advantage.

Gettysburg at York College men's basketball

Folks, we’re getting into some rarefied air here.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the York College men’s basketball team is on a run of historic proportions.

WY EHS wrestling

WRIGHTSVILLE — In a match in which every bout finished with six points being awarded to either visiting West York or host Eastern York, it came down to one point.

For the Bulldogs, that point cost them a victory.

With West York leading 42-18 with four bouts left, it seemed virtually certain the Bulldogs would prevail.
