It was quite a busy week around the YAIAA as multiple teams wrapped up division titles.

The upcoming week promises more of the same as we head into the first full week of May and teams begin prepping for the postseason.

So, we're going to get right into recapping the week that was in the YAIAA.

1. Friday night under the lights, Dallastown hosted Central York in a mammoth YAIAA Division I boys' lacrosse showdown.

The Panthers came in unbeaten in league play while the Wildcats had one division loss. And that came at the hands of Central York.

Knowing they had to win for a shot at the league title, the Wildcats held a slim 5-4 lead at halftime. Dallastown built that lead to 6-4 before Central's Ian Desenberg and Collin George scored 1:08 apart to forge a tie.

From there, the Panthers took control of the game and won, 11-9, to secure the YAIAA Division I title.

CJ Belker scored five goals for Central York.

2. Northeastern's baseball team had quite a successful run last week. And if the Bobcats keep it up, a YAIAA Division II crown could be in the cards.

Northeastern capped its week by pounding York Suburban, 14-6, Friday. That was the Bobcats' fourth win of the week and a set up a showdown today at Kennard-Dale. First pitch is set for 4:15 p.m. in Fawn Grove.

The Bobcats and Rams are joined in the hunt for the Division II title by West York. Northeastern enters this week with a 7-6 division record and is followed closely by West York (6-6) and K-D (5-6).

Division I is also home to a close race with Red Lion (9-3), Spring Grove (9-3) and Dallastown (9-4) all in the running. Littlestown (13-1) has already wrapped up the Division III title and Delone Catholic (11-3) has secured Division IV.

3. Division I isn't nearly as crowded in softball as it is in baseball. In fact, Central York (10-2 division) secured the outright division title Thursday by beating Dallastown, 11-1.

Division II was won by Spring Grove (10-3) while Delone Catholic (13-0) easily wrapped up Division IV. Kennard-Dale (11-1) owns at least a share of the Division III title.

4. Since we can't mention every single team that wins a division title in this space, we welcome you to check out our standings page for a complete overview of the YAIAA, Mid-Penn, Lancaster-Lebanon League and Sideling Hill League standings.

5. The White Rose Invitational is a big event in the world of high school track and field.

And Dallastown hurdler TT Purnell was more than ready for it. After taking a week off from competition, Purnell took gold in the 300 hurdles with a time of 46.9 and added a silver medal in the 100 hurdles to her haul.

Our team has more coverage (including videos and photos) here and here.

6. Don't forget to vote for our YAIAA boys and girls athletes of the week. The polls close at 5 p.m. today (Monday) and the winners have a chance to be selected as our GameTimePA athletes of the week.
