William Penn senior basketball star Tavon Parker summed up his terrific career by saying the thing that he was most proud of didn't happen on the court.

"I say the biggest accomplishment is my grades," Parker said. "You can't measure accomplishments off of wins and losses or championships. Championships come and go, but the lessons you learn on the road to the championships are what stay with you forever.

"Your brain is what you have forever. One day everybody is going to have to hang their sneakers up."

Parker, along with his fellow YAIAA senior all-stars, took part in a final game Sunday afternoon at Spring Grove Area High School.

Sunday's first game featured the senior girls' all-stars. The Division I-II team defeated the Division III-IV team, 75-68.

York Catholic's Morgan Klunk led all scorers with 18 points for the Division III-IV team. New Oxford's Lindsey Miller led the Division I-II team with 16 points, and Red Lion's Jen Horvatinovic added 13.

In the second game, Parker led the Division I-IV team to a 131-110 win. There were a combined 29 3-pointers in the contest and, of course, some jaw-dropping dunks

Parker led all scorers with 22 points. William Penn's Derek Wilson and York County Tech's Ronald Henderson each had 18.

York Suburban's Evan Eberhardinger scored 21 to lead the Division II-III team. Dover's Josh McMahon added 18. Northeastern's Khalid Nwandu and Littlestown's Ryan Kehr both had 17.

The games brought closure to the hoops career of many players but some will continue playing, like Kennard-Dale's Sara Tarbert, who will take the court for Division I's UMBC.

"I'm really excited. The offense they (UMBC) run is what I run in AAU. I'm smaller for a forward, but that's what they recruited me as," said Tarbert, who finished with 17 points on Sunday.

Tarbert finished her high school career with 1,028 rebounds and is the girls' all-time leading scorer at Kennard-Dale with 1,742 points.

While a number of personal milestones were achieved this season, there also were teams that reached new heights behind senior leadership.

The Susquehannock girls' team played at Giant Center for the first time in school history and finished second in the District 3 Class AAA tournament.

"It was awesome playing at Giant Center," Susquehannock's Leah Deter said. "We had three captains that all stepped up when we needed to."

Among its many accomplishments, the Dover girls' won its first division crown and first two state playoff games in program history.

"I don't know if I'll ever be able to put into words (how special this season was)," said Dover's Kara Funk, who scored nine points on Sunday. "It was exciting. It was an amazing season and something I'll never forget."

Then there were the seniors who learned something more about themselves this season by leading younger teammates.

"It definitely helped me become a leader more than I used to be," said Miller, who was the lone senior on her New Oxford team. "I was more vocal and kind of became a mentor."

Eberhardinger was the lone returning starter for the Trojans this season, and he helped the team clinch a tie for the Division III crown with Eastern York.

"If I didn't lead my team, we wouldn't have been as good as we were or got as far as we did," said Eberhardinger, who hit five 3's on Sunday. "I just had to step up and get the team together and do the right things."
