GIRLS WIN YAIAA CHAMPIONSHIP - Kiara McNealy pulled down a huge offensive rebound late in the YAIAA championship game against Central York and promptly found senior Maggie Groh, possibly the least likely candidate to fire up a potential game-winner. But Groh took the pass, and in one motion drained a 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded and the Wildcats won another YAIAA title, 36-33. McNealy said she never even considered taking the shot, "I was just looking to get it to a shooter." Groh admitted she was a surprise choice from long range. "But I knew I could make it. I shoot them in practice." Perhaps with the best view in the packed gym at York Tech, Wildcats coach Rexroth said, "I knew it was going in as soon as it left her hand."
Girls finish fourth in districts - Fresh off their YAIAA title, the Dallastown girls traveled to YAIAA foe, Division II champ Northeastern, and came away with a dominating 46-26 victory. Praise Matthews dropped 16. On Feb. 23, the Cats came back from 15 points down to stun Lebanon, 49-44 to not only advance to the semifinals but assure themselves a spot in the state tournament. Unfortunately, down 14 after the first quarter, was too much to overcome in the semifinal at Central and the Wildcats fell to the Panthers, 48-34. They played at Central Dauphin, March 1, dropping the third-place game, 40-25. Up next, the PIAA Tournament.
Girls PIAA Tournament - The ladies opened the PIAA 6A tournament March 10 at Spring-Ford. The third-place team from District 1 ended the Wildcats outstanding campaign, 55-27.
Boys get playoff berth - The Wildcat boys saw another fine season come to a close in the District 3 6A tourney, when YAIAA champ Central York defeated our boys 86-53.
Jonah's night - Long-time Wildcats boys manager Jonah Stefko got the start January 23 in a 68-42 win past York County Tech. Stefko scored the Cats first bucket of the game, then brought the huge crowd - and players - to their feet in the fourth quarter when he buried a 3-pointer.
