Back to the Dance

Despite losing in the semi finals of the Capital Athletic conference tournament last week to Salisbury University, The York College Spartans, my alma mater, are going back to the dance. The dance in question here it the NCAA Division III national tournament, which culminates on March 18 in Salem, Virginia with the crowning of this year's champion. York had been all but unbeatable on their home court, nicknamed the Kitchen, for the last two years having won 31 games in a row at Wolf Gymnasium. For the year they have only lost 3 times, twice to Salisbury and once to Catholic University and each time by only two points. The team only lost two players from the squad that made a run to the final four in Salem last year, and has added an impressive group of Freshman to take their places. In the first round of the tournament the Spartans will take on the Cardinals of York College of New York in a confusing all York match up.

York hopes to continue the name game by winning that game and earning a chance to take on the Catholic U Cardinals for a birth in the Sweet 16. More updates to come as the tourny rolls on, but for now 'that's good work out of you' York College men's team for making it back to the dance.
