You can set your clock the first weekend of November to the fact that Delone Catholic will be playing for a District 3 Class 2A volleyball championship, and will be the favorite. In fact, the Squirettes had won the last three in a row and have gone deep into the state playoffs the past few years, so in this year’s final against the Trinity Shamrocks at Dallastown High School on Nov. 2, nobody would call you crazy if you thought Delone was the poised to capture another crown. Back on Oct. 7, the Squirettes had beaten Trinity for the Rocks’ lone loss this season and enough to make Trinity worry a bit.
Eight minutes into the Class 1A District 3 Soccer final between the Fighting Irish of York Catholic and the Halifax Wildcats at Hersheypark Stadium on Oct. 30, the sluggish Fighting Irish found themselves in a two-goal deficit, seemingly buried for good. But over the next 70 minutes, York Catholic carried the play and dominated the Wildcats in every facet of the game – time of possession, scoring chances and offensive zone time. So relentless was the pressure, it was no surprise when the Fighting Irish scored in the 49th minute to cut the lead in half.
