Can you believe another week of spring sports is already in the books?
Before long, we'll be deep into summer baseball and, very shortly thereafter, the opening of football camps.
But that's a little ways off. Spring sports are still the main focus as we prepare to head into May. And that's the month that the final postseasons of the year (except tennis, which began this week) get rolling.
1. Another week, another big track meet in York County.
This time around, it was the Wildcat Invitational at Dallastown on Friday. Erin Harman and Lynne Mooradian had big days for South Western. Harman won the pole vault and the triple jump. Her vault of 11 feet, 1 inch set a meet record.
Mooradian won the long jump and the 4oo-meter dash.
2. It appears that YAIAA Division I is in for another frantic race to the finish after Central York beat Red Lion, 6-4, in softball action Friday.
Central pitcher Taylor Rohrbaugh prevented the Lions from their usual big inning with eight strikeouts. The win forged a tie atop the standings between the Panthers and Dallastown. The Wildcats escaped a sticky situation to beat South Western, 5-4, Friday.
Red Lion sits one game behind the division leaders.
3. Littlestown's baseball team has been off to an incredibly hot start this season.
Littlestown came back to earth a little Friday. The Bolts absorbed an 11-0, six-inning loss to fellow division front-runner Susquehannock.
Josh Houser allowed only one hit with four strikeouts and no walks in the win.
4. Today's YAIAA Class AAA tennis final promises to be a unique one as South Western teammates Anthony Miserendino and Quin Meyer meet to decide the champion.
Miserendino beat Red Lion's Sam Innerst, 6-1, 6-2, while Meyer got by John Schmitt of Dallastown, 7-5, 6-1, to reach today's 4 p.m. championship at South Western.
In Class AA, Biglerville's Cole Herzing will meet York Suburban's Michael Hogg at the same time and place for the AA crown.
Herzing beat Adam Hack, 6-1, 6-1, while Hogg won, 6-2, 6-2, vs. Delone Catholic's Adam Fisher.
5. The Susquehannock boys' lacrosse team had quite a busy week.
The Warriors won four games to improve their overall record to 8-7. In the middle of the winning streak, junior Zach Gloeckner scored three goals to lead Susquehannock by Red Lion, 9-3.
That win made the Warriors 3-for-3 on the week. They added another win 24 hours later by beating Eastern York, 11-7.
