The York County Tech softball team did more this year than win an unlikely YAIAA Division IV championship.

For a local school rarely associated with sports success, the Spartans are treading in uncharted waters. Before the 2010 Spartans softball team, no York County Tech girls' sports team had finished a season with a winning record.

Ever.

In any sport.

Granted, Tech doesn't offer nearly as many girls' sports programs as other schools in area. Still, it's a staggering stat.

The Spartans softball team finished this season 13-7 overall, 10-6 in Division IV. Tech secured the division title on the last day of the regular season, scoring a 9-3 win against Fairfield on May 11. That same day, Hanover lost to Biglerville to hand Tech the outright title.

Really, it's been a pretty good year for Tech sports. The Spartans football team finished 6-4, giving the program its first winning record since 1983. Other teams have been far more competitive. According to athletic director Rob Caruso, the school hit a high in student athletic participation with 387.

And starting next year, the school will enter a co-op with York County Day which allows Tech students to compete in tennis, field hockey, girls' basketball and boys' and girls' soccer.
