Only Northeastern, York High left standing in PIAA boys’ basketball state action

By Elijah Armold

The first weekend of PIAA basketball action is in the books, and it wasn’t very kind to area teams.

Only two squads remain in the tournament, which is set to begin second-round action Tuesday.

Friday, Kennard-Dale bowed out with a loss to Imhotep Charter in a Class 4-A opener. The Rams took their program to historic heights this season, reaching the state tournament for the first time since 1996. This came after appearing in the York-Adams League tournament for the first time since 2003.

Also Friday, York Country Day couldn’t turn the momentum of erasing a 19-point deficit to capture its third-straight District 3 1-A crown into state-level success. The Greyhounds’ season ended with a loss to Plumstead Christian.

Dallastown wrapped up a hard-luck season, that saw it fight through some key injuries and a slow start, before heating up late in the year to reach the PIAA 6-A tournament. The Wildcats lost to Plymouth-Whitemarsh Saturday.
