The West York boys' soccer team could get a big boost in time for the postseason. Bulldogs coach Brett Maxwell said Thursday the team hoping to get senior Alex Shinsky back in time for the start of the District 3 Class AAA playoffs. Shinsky, the former United States U-17 midfielder, reinjured his left knee early in West York's 1-0 loss to Dallastown. Maxwell said Shinsky had minor surgery last week on the knee, which he originally injured late last year. "There's a chance he could be ready two weeks from now," Maxwell said. Meanwhile, West York still managed to incorporate Shinksy into Thursday's 9-1, senior day victory over Dover. The senior took part in the opening kick off, before immediately being subbed out of the game. "I talked to him before the year and said 'I just want you to come out and have a good time,'" Maxwell said. "He's got a top Division I scholarship. He's played all over the world. I just want you to come out with your friends and have a good time." Speaking of West York soccer, keep an eye out for a upcoming feature on high-scoring senior Fred Lucas, who has an interesting back story. That should be out next week. District ranking notes One can't help but notice just how tightly packed the District 3 Class AAA soccer rankings are. In that class alone, 12 different teams have three or fewer losses. Dallastown is No. 2 in those standings, behind only unbeaten Mechancisburg. West York and Central York check in at No. 7 and 8, respectively. That should make next week's YAIAA soccer tournament even more important. All three teams could move up or down, depending on how they fare. In Class AA, York Suburban sits at No. 4, with Susquehannock at No. 10. In Class A, Fairfield, Biglerville and York Catholic are bunched together at No. 5, 6 and 7, respectively.
