YAIAA wrestling, basketball all-star showcases set for March


Spring practice officially opened today, and as the winter postseason winds downs, two all-star showcases are scheduled in the near future.

The Greater York Area Wrestling Officials chapter is sponsoring an All-Star match at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 12 at Spring Grove High School.

Here's more:

"In addition to showcasing graduating wrestlers, the event will also feature all-star matches between sixth-grade wrestlers from the area as they end the first phase of their career and prepare for the junior high level.

Admission for the event will be $4 for adults and $2 for students. Proceeds benefit the annual scholarships awarded by the officials to graduating seniors. This year, two seniors moving onto college will receive $500 awards from the chapter."

Some basketball all-star games are also in the works.

The York White Rose Lions are sponsoring two YAIAA Senior All-Star basketball games on March 23 at Northeastern High School.

The girls will play at 2 p.m., and the boys at 4 p.m. Admission is $5 per adult and $3 per student.

All proceeds go to Army Corporal Matthew Hanes.
