York Township hasn't won a Susquehanna League regular-season championship since 1997.
The 2012 Township team seems determined to end that drought.
First-place Township improved to 9-1 this season with a 17-0 pounding of Stewartstown in Spry on Thursday evening. It holds a 1½-game lead over second-place Red Lion (8-3).
Township raked Stewartstown pitching for 19 hits, nine of which went for extra bases. Morgan Markey cracked three doubles for the winners, and Mike Wokulich delivered a three-run home run and a double. Dan Westfall added a two-run home run, and D.J. Reed supplied three hits.
Township pitcher Austin Calaman, meanwhile, stopped Stewartstown on three singles, two by Craig Martin. Calaman struck out four and walked one.
