This week, some of the bigger events took place 48 hours ago with the Herb Schmidt Relays at York Suburban and the Koller Classic at Central York.

We also had a bit of a reprieve from any football news. There weren't any coaching changes and none of the YAIAA teams switched divisions for coming years.

Let's get started recapping the week that was:

1. No, Central York did not win its own Koller Classic on Saturday.

But the Panthers held their own against a challenging field that included Bethlehem Catholic, Northeastern and North Allegheny, among others.

After a 4-4 finish in its pool, Central beat Northeastern (25-21) and Chambersburg (25-23) in elimination matches before bowing to Bethlehem Catholic (23-25) in the semifinals.

North Allegheny won the title by beating Bethlehem Catholic, 23-25, 25-18, 15-8.

2. As usual, the Herb Schmidt Relays brought out some of the best athletes in the YAIAA on Saturday at York Suburban.

Times and finishes meant as much as usual, but the William Penn athletes had more than results on their mind. Bearcats coach Tony Jones has been away from the team for much of the year as he continues his battle with cancer.

Saturday, his athletes did him proud, especially the 400 relay squad of Cheyanne Brown, Jasmine Berry, Kelleann Graham and Donella Nelson. The foursome turned in a winning time of 49.5 to break their own school record.

3. Spring Grove's Levi Krause told Evening Sun reporter George Marinos that he didn't have his best stuff during Thursday's YAIAA Division I scrap with South Western. Forgive the Mustangs if they disagree.

Krause went the distance and allowed only seven baserunners in the 4-0 win.

The victory kept Spring Grove in the thick of the competitive Division I race.

4. The hype surrounding Tuesday's softball game between visiting Central York and Dallastown said the game could be the showdown of the year.

That never came close to happening.

The Wildcats jumped on Panthers starter Taylor Rohrbaugh for three runs in the first inning of a 10-0, five-inning whitewash. Kelsey Collins went the distance for Dallastown. She struck out eight and walked one.

5. Some other results of note this week:

  • Kennard-Dale beat Cumberland Valley, 13-12, in double overtime Saturday in a girls' lacrosse matchup in Mechanicsburg. Nicole Black scored the game-winner. The Eagles came in as the top-ranked team in the District 3 power ratings. The Rams were fourth.

  • Northeastern's baseball team notched an impressive non-conference win Saturday afternoon by going on the road and beating perennial Mid-Penn and District 3 power Northern, 4-2. The Polar Bears won the PIAA Class AAA title in 2011.

6. Don't forget to vote for our YAIAA girls and boys Athletes of the Week. The polls close at 5 p.m. today (Monday).
