The regular season is beginning to wind down for many winter sports and that means some key match-ups this week both between top players and top teams


High school girls’ basketball

Spring Grove at Susquehannock, 7:30 p.m. - This is a matchup of one of the top teams in the YAIAA in Susquehannock and the YAIAA’s leading scorer in Morgan Arden who averages 23.7 points per game. Arden has scored over 20 points in four of Spring Grove’s last five games. Susquehannock has won five of their last six games with their lone loss during that span coming at the hands of the YAIAA’s lone undefeated team, Dover.


High school girls’ basketball

Delone Catholic at Greencastle-Antrim, 7:30 p.m. - Two top notch teams square off when YAIAA Division IV leader Delone Catholic (12-2) travels to Greencastle-Antrim for a non-league game. Greencastle-Antrim is a perfect 12-0 on the season. The Blue Devils have four players that are averaging over 10 points per game.


High School girls’ basketball

Biglerville at Hanover, 7:30 p.m. - The last time Hanover’s Soukaina Tracy and Biglerville’s Katie Camara faced each other, the two combined for 47 points. Tracy is third in the YAIAA in scoring, averaging 20.7 points per game while Camara stands fifth averaging 19.2 points per game. Both teams have seemingly secured bids for the District 3 Class AA playoffs and while not mathematically eliminated from the YAIAA Division IV title, both are a long shot. Thursday’s game will just be an opportunity to watch two big-time scorers battle it out.

High school wrestling

Biglerville at Bermudian Springs, 7:30 p.m. and South Western at Spring Grove, 7:30 p.m. -If you are a high school wrestling fan Thursday is like a second Christmas. two different match-ups of cross-town rivals, both of which carry huge implications in who wins the division. These four teams do not need any extra motivation to get amped up when they face each other, but throw in the fact a division title is on the line and these are can’t miss matches.


High school boys’ basketball

Bermudian Springs at York Suburban, 7:30 p.m. - This is a huge matchup in the YAIAA Division III race. Bermudian sits atop the division at 13-1 overall and 8-1 in the division. Led by Neil Murren and his 13.4 points per game the Eagles have won four in a row with their lone loss being a one-point loss to Boiling Springs. York Suburban is led by C.J. Boxley and his 14.8 points per game. They are coming off of two straight games of winning by more than 25 points. The Trojans are 9-4 overall and 6-1 in the division. A Bermudian Springs win and they would have a two game cushion over the Trojans. A York Suburban win and the two teams would be tied in the loss column.
