Lancaster Catholic Defends Its District 3 Championship

Missing at high school sports during the pandemic is the frenzied crowd that rallies behind its partisan banners in a big game.

Swimmers Continue to Strike Gold and Silver

The past several seasons, the Crusaders of Bishop McDevitt have dominated at the Mid-Penn and District 3 Class 2A swimming championships. That dominance continued at this year’s District 3 meet, held at Central York High School, where the boys won the team championship again and the Crusaders’ relay teams won the 200-Freestyle, 200-Medley and 400-Freestyle, respectively. Individually, Patrick Hemingway won gold in the 100-backstroke and a silver in the 50-Freestyle. Lucas Hancock and Will Brobson won silvers in the 100-Freestyle and 100-Breaststroke.
