Spartans to Host YAIAA Volleyball Night

The York College volleyball team is holding York Adams Interscholastic Athletic Association (YAIAA) night on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:00 pm in the Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center on the campus of York College.  

The Spartans are hosting St. Mary’s College of Maryland in a Capital Athletic Conference showdown.  All YAIAA volleyball squads are invited to attend this conference match-up that will determine seeding for the upcoming CAC post-season tournament.  

Currently, the green and white have seven former YAIAA athletes on their roster representing five different area high schools.  Each of these players has contributed to the team’s incredible success as the Spartans stand at 27-5 (5-2 CAC) as of October 8.

Lindsay Schorner (Spring Grove, Pa./Spring Grove) has proven herself a strong offensive force as an outside hitter for the Spartans as she has been named CAC Player of the Week twice during the 2007 campaign. The sophomore has accumulated a team-leading 418 kills good for a 3.83 per game average.  Schorner is also a great defensive player compiling 443 digs for the year, ranking second on the squad in that category.

Alishia Waltermyer (Brogue, Pa./Red Lion) has made impressive contributions during her freshman campaign amassing 378 kills.  Defensively, the middle blocker has been a wall at the net, leading the Spartans with 72 total blocks.

Senior setter Katie Hertz (Glenville, Pa./Delone Catholic) has provided the Spartans with consistency and leadership as she paces the squad and the CAC with 1300 assists for a per game average of 11.83.  Hertz has also totaled a team-leading 45 service aces in 2007.

Casi Brough (Hanover, Pa./Spring Grove) has compiled 234 kills as an outside hitter for the green and white, while defensive specialist Amy Livelsberger (Hanover, Pa./Delone Catholic) has tallied 275 digs good for fourth on the squad.

Jess Diaczun (York, Pa./York Suburban) and Chenell Hill (York, Pa./West York) are young players that continue to improve under the tutelage of Coach Sue DuMars.  Both Diaczun and Hill are poised to make quality contributions to the Spartan program in the coming seasons.

The Spartans look forward to hosting the YAIAA teams in attendance and wish all the squads the best of luck throughout the rest of their respective seasons.
