Central York volleyball trio plans to stick together
If it wasn't clear before Thursday, it is now: The Central York boys' volleyball team is playing a notch or two above everybody else right now. That much was on display during the Panthers' three-game dissection of Spring Grove in a showdown a state-ranked teams. Central York, the PVCA's No. 1 ranked Class AAA team, has every reason to believe its season can extend all the way to June, when the PIAA volleyball championships are scheduled. But whenever the Panthers season does wrap, it won't mark the end of the line together for three of teams seniors. Setter David Moler (pictured right) and hitters Wes Richardson and Kyle Wisner all plan to play volleyball in college together. The lucky school: Stevenson University, a Division III college in Owings MIlls, Md. After his team's victory Thursday, Moler explained how the trio ended up choosing Stevenson. "The coach was talking to Wes. He wanted Wes first," Moler said. "Then he asked about me. Then he asked about Wis. Because each game he came to, I think he was more impressed with the next guy. And he ended up asking each of us. "We all just talked just talked about and said 'Why not go together?' We wanted to see if our high school team could make a national championship college team in D-III." The Mustangs recently finished off a 26-7 season, and won the program's first ECAC championship. Moler, Richardson and Wisner have helped form the bedrock of a Panthers team that in 7-0 and set stop the YAIAA standings. Moler has dished out 302 assists so far this season, while Wisner leads the team with 96 kills. Once they get to Stevenson, the three could end playing against one of their current teammates. Senior hitter Paul Kuhn has committed to play at Juniata, one of the top Division III volleyball programs in the country.
