Now that the spring sports season is well underway, we're back with the first Weekly Rewind of the season.
It's a busy time of the year with numerous sports happening every night. But, it goes quickly, too. We're already just about a month away from most sports beginning league tournaments. Time flies.
Before we delve into the spring sports, we're beginning with the Daily Record/Sunday News' winter sports all-star teams, which were unveiled Thursday through Sunday.
2. There was also some football news this week as Red Lion named a replacement for former coach Pat Conrad.
The Lions tabbed Jesse Shay, who had been Bishop McDevitt's defensive coordinator for the last two seasons. The McDevitt and Red Lion programs are in drastically different places -- the Crusaders went 14-1 last year, won the District 3 Class AAA title and advanced to the PIAA semifinals while the Lions limped to a 1-9 finish.
3. The Red Lion and Dallastown softball teams both have high hopes for this season.
Friday, the two squared off in a game to remember.
Jenna Eckenrode's two-out, run-scoring single in the bottom of the sixth inning helped the Wildcats beat their rivals, 2-1. Eckenrode's hit came one at-bat after Amanda Jones tripled.
Red Lion threatened in the seventh -- Taylor Gould reached third base -- but the Lions failed to bring her home.
4. On the baseball diamond, defending PIAA Class AAA champion West York picked up a much-needed win Friday vs. Northeastern.
Brett Kinneman's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the seventh drove in the winning run as the Bulldogs escaped with a 2-1 win vs. their mistake-prone rivals. The Bobcats committed five errors -- including two in the bottom of the seventh that helped West York win.
5. Central York boys' lacrosse player Ian Desenberg had quite the night Wednesday.
Desenberg scored four times in the third period, including three quick strikes in 69 minutes, to help the Panthers turn back Red Lion, 14-9.
C.J. Belker also had four goals for unbeaten Central York.
6. Don't forget to vote for our YAIAA boys' and girls' Athlete of the Week. Both polls close at 5 p.m. today (Monday).
