Donegal Responds From Octorara Loss, Tallies Workmanlike Victory At Northern Lebanon As Indians Begin Final Week With Hopes Of Snatching Up District 3-5A Playoff Spot

February 5, 2023 Andy Herr

Once you reach this part of the season when the number of days, much less the number of remaining games can essentially be counted on one hand in fact, it’d be nothing if not understandable as to why some of the more “feel good” stories found inside the Lancaster-Lebanon League boys’ basketball trail may now […]

Manheim Central Bounces Back From Kennard-Dale Setback With Commanding Road Win At Solanco As Barons Now Set Their Sights On Warwick For Section Two Title Fight

February 4, 2023 Andy Herr

If you’ve operated in this line of work for any great length of time, chances are that you already know how wild and tumultuous the journey of a high school basketball season can be. And while they surely wouldn’t like to be the experts on such a phenomenon, rest assured that the Manheim Central Barons […]

Cumberland Valley Withstands Persistent Manheim Township Volleys As Eagles Secure Saturday Nonleague Victory To Maintain Elite District 3-6A Residency

February 4, 2023 Andy Herr

With just a handful of days left in the high school basketball regular season, it’s understandable as to why some teams are already having visions of grandeur when it comes to dreaming of the weeks yet to unfold which will surely include an excursion into the postseason for those exclusive members. Cumberland Valley of course […]

Benne, Penn Manor Shine Bright As Comets Hold Down Lebanon Amid Mason’s Magnificent Performance

February 2, 2023 Andy Herr

It’s downright crazy to fathom this, but a quick look at the calendar shows that the end of the regular season is fast approaching. As in a matter of days fast approaching to be exact. And sure, while some teams are either sitting pretty, or trying to reach for their favorite stress reliever of choice […]

Lancaster Country Day Ultimately Solves Annville-Cleona Riddle As Strong Second Half Helps Usher Cougars To Section Triumph Over Dutchmen

January 27, 2023 Andy Herr

As is typically the case most every season, sometimes just a change in scenery can make a world of difference for a team. Or, more specifically, a change in the calendar if you will. For Annville-Cleona’s boys’ hoops squad, you’d understand as to why they were probably just as excited to watch the ball drop […]

Enterline Helps Lead The Way As Manheim Central Knocks Off Conestoga Valley For Pivotal Divisional Win Amid Playoff Implications

January 25, 2023 Andy Herr

If the prevailing notion posed by some (okay, perhaps just by yours truly most specifically) is that the road to the Section Two title entirely goes through Lititz this season, that very theme may have certainly been on display here of late. However, maybe not exactly in the manner that you would originally have suspected. […]

Mounts Continue To Hunt As Ephrata Takes Down Daniel Boone In Decisive Nonconference Contest To Remain On 6A Playoff Prowl

January 24, 2023 Andy Herr

It’s finally time. Yes, with just a handful of weeks left to go inside the regular season, it’s time to take a gander at those District 3 power rankings once and for all. And as is typically the case, the big boys, those residing in the 6A world, generally happen to steal the show in […]

Cocalico Rights The Ship, Overcomes Slow Start To Complete Season Sweep Of Northern Lebanon On Thursday Night

January 22, 2023 Andy Herr

The last time we saw the Cocalico Eagles live and in action, their season was at a bit of a fork in the road if you will. Sure, that probably seems blasphemous on the surface considering that the Eagles were squarely staring down the barrel of a 3-0 start to section play –a start which […]

Braves Maintain Their Gait As Octorara Remains Atop Section Three Following Second Half Explosion Against Lancaster Catholic

January 19, 2023 Andy Herr

Apologies in advance for not knowing the number specifically, but let’s just keep it simple when we say that there have been more than a few basketball games played across the Lancaster-Lebanon League so far this season. And within that overwhelmingly large cluster of contests, there are a certain few that seem to stand out […]

Lancaster Mennonite Blends Youth With Experience As Blazers Concoct Potion To Get Past Steel-High In Battle Of 2A Stalwarts

January 17, 2023 Andy Herr

Let’s just be perfectly frank here. If we’re talking about success inside the Lancaster-Lebanon League found on the boys’ basketball scene most specifically, surely we cannot have any semblance of an actual conversation if we were to neglect Lancaster Mennonite in any way, shape, or form. To put it mildly, there has arguably been no […]

Wilson Rides Emphatic 12-Minute Second Half Display En Route To Victory As Bulldogs Top Cedar Crest In Nonconference Matinee

January 15, 2023 Andy Herr

 All it takes is a quick peek at the schedule to realize that we have arrived at Martin Luther King Jr weekend. And in many ways, the holiday smackdab in the middle of January can rightly serve as the officially unofficial line of demarcation if you will in terms of the halfway point of the […]

Lancaster Country Day Feasts Upon Pequea Valley Turnovers As Cougars Notch Win Over Divisional Foe To Remain In Hunt

January 14, 2023 Andy Herr

In the years since we’ve grown accustomed to seeing the Lancaster Country Day Cougars occupy a spot in the Lancaster-Lebanon League, we’ve seen this play out before. “This” meaning that the small private school in the conference –the lone one found in 1A ranks mind you — typically has dueling seasons of sorts. What we […]

Warwick Makes Quick Work Of Conestoga Valley As Warriors Continue To Run With Lead Pack In Section Two

January 8, 2023 Andy Herr

While the season may still be relatively young at this point, one could also look at the body of work compiled by the Warwick Warriors so far this year and rightfully determine that it has been nothing if not a strong start to begin their campaign. In fact, some might even say historic in some […]

Octorara Regains Winning Ways As Braves Top Cocalico In Critical Divisional Bout

January 6, 2023 Andy Herr

First of all, we must ask a question in advance here… Is it okay to type out loud that on January 5th, just four days after the clock struck midnight and rung in a brand-new calendar year, that two teams may wind up playing a basketball game that could largely come to define their respective […]

McCaskey Gets York County Retribution As Red Tornado Respond To York High Loss, Vanquish Dallastown In Intriguing Nonconference Matchup

January 5, 2023 Andy Herr

While some may not think it initially, sometimes teams from different lands are not all that far different from one another. Shoot, just look at both Dallastown and McCaskey for proof of that. Granted, aside from the actual logistics of both the Wildcats’ and Red Tornado’s operation itself –a break-neck pace that features an up-tempo […]
