Spring Sports Round-Up 2016-2017

Submitted by Matt Marshall, Athletic Director

Boys Tennis

The Boys Tennis Team had a great showing this spring finishing with a record of 8-3 with strong showings from both the singles and doubles competitions. The team included a mix of upperclassman and underclassmen, strong leadership, and as much growth throughout the season. Tyr Abenschoen and Dan Lee qualified for the post-season and were able to extend their senior seasons. Below are their results/accomplishments:

YAIAA Singles Tournament

3rd Place – Tyr Abendschoen

4th Place – Dan Lee

YAIAA Doubles Tournament

2nd Place – Tyr Abendschoen & Dan Lee

District Qualifiers

Tyr Abendschoen (Singles), Tyr Abendschoen & Dan Lee (Doubles)


The season win-loss certainly does not define the success of our baseball team. With almost an entirely new coaching staff, it was a year for building connection and rapport with current and future players.  The senior leadership displayed by many created a great building block for the future of YS baseball. The team demonstrated great effort and dedication throughout the season and battled in many close contests.


While the softball team was short on numbers this past season, that certainly did not diminish the skill or effort that was displayed by the girls on the team. We had a very dedicated group of girls who continued to work extremely hard at their craft and beat multiple teams with deeper rosters at their disposal. With a team full of freshman, sophomores, and juniors, we look forward to a very successful season from the softball team next year.

Boys Lacrosse

After a very successful 2015-2016 season and graduating seniors who moved on to college ranks, the Boys Lacrosse Team repeated a very strong performance. Relying on mix of very talented underclassmen and experienced skilled upperclassmen,  the team qualified for the District 3 Tournament and recorded  the first District 3 tournament win in program history by defeating Lancaster Country Day in the first round.

Girls Lacrosse

The Girls Lacrosse Team, with  35+ on the roster,  continued to grow on the lacrosse field while recording two victories for the season. They also did a phenomenal job in the classroom and displayed the type of sportsmanship on the field that we are extremely proud of at York Suburban.

Track and Field

The amount of participation for the Track and Field Team continues to be astounding. Over 100 athletes coming out for the team requires an extreme amount of organization, accountability, and communication between coaches and athletes to ensure that practices are productive and that goals are met throughout the season. This group demonstrated that ability with both the girls and boys teams achieving 5-1 on the season and many strong individual showings in the postseason.  Below are the latest results:

YAIAA County Meet

1st Place – Boys 4x800m Relay

1st Place – 100 and 200m Dash – Ykendi Hood

Boys Volleyball

Coming off of a state semi-final run this season, our Boys Volleyball Team has once again reloaded. Facing an extremely tough schedule of matches and tournaments throughout the season, the boys have provided themselves with the experience to march deep into the postseason once again. The team is a close knit unit that receives contributions from many members. They recently made it to the semi-finals of the YAIAA Tournament before losing to the larger #1 state-ranked Central York.

The boys clinched a state playoff berth and competed in the District finals Friday, May 26, receiving  a silver medal, after being defeated by the champion Northeastern team. On June 3, the team faces Beaver County Christian the PIAA quarterfinal match.


Middle School Sports UNDEFEATED!

The two middle school sports teams that were competing in the spring finished with undefeated seasons! For both the track and girls volleyball programs, success is nothing new. Not only did both teams defeat all YAIAA opponents they competed extremely well in tournaments and invitationals either winning or finishing near the top in all competitions. The future is promising with the talent and program development occurring at the middle school level.
