Tuesday's best: Four YAIAA girls break course records
Nicole Shelton of Christian School of York set a course record at South Western, winning the individual girls' race with a time of 19 minutes, 20 seconds. She finished more than a minute faster than second-place finisher, Sarah Forry. The previous record was 19:25, which was set by Dallastown's Emily Ballantyne in 2008.
Eastern York's Maddie McLain continued her standout season by running a time of 19:31 to break the Red Lion course record set earlier this year by Fairfield's Lindsey Lytle. The performance comes a week after McLain broke the course record at Samuel S. Lewis State Park.
Finally, both Lytle and Emily Schuler of Dallastown surpassed the course record at Fairfield, with Schuler winning in 19:26. Lytle finished second at 20:19.
Montenegro lifts Gettysburg: It took until overtime for Division III-leading Gettysburg to knock off Hanover, but Elena Montenegro delivered when she found the back of the net with three minutes remaining in the extra period Tuesday.
Gettysburg outshot the Hawkettes, 21-5. Yet, Hanover scored early in the first half on a goal by Madelyn Dell and led for most of the game. Warriors star Kailey Mixell tied the game with 3:26 left in the second half before Montenegro won it in overtime.
The win allowed the Warriors to remain tied with Bermudian Springs for the lead in Division III.
Long fills the net: New Oxford's Kaelyn Long once again showed why she's arguably the best player in the YAIAA, scoring four goals in a 5-2 Colonials win over Susquehannock.
The senior scored three in the first 10 minutes of the first half before adding her fourth about nine minutes into the second. She also assisted on the team's fifth goal by Carly Flickinger.
With Dallastown having clinched the Division I title, New Oxford will miss the YAIAA tournament but qualify for the District 3 playoffs.
Delone Catholic sweeps: The Squirettes continued to dominate their top competition in Division III Tuesday, beating Littlestown in three sets, 25-10, 25-20, 25-16.
Similar to Delone's victory over York Catholic last week, Chloe Kindig and Claire Kaufmann led the way for the Squirettes. Kindig finished with 22 assists, 12 digs and three kills while Kauffmann contributed 14 kills, three digs and two aces.
The Squirettes remain undefeated in the division.
Larson, Lese lift Dallastown: In a battle between two teams vying for the Division I title, Dallastown topped Red Lion, 2-0.
Hannah Larson scored on an assist by Skyler Wilt to get the Wildcats on the board with 17:29 left in the first half, and Jordan Lese scored the team's second goal six minutes later. Allison Hameier only had to make three saves in the shutout.
