Two other Spartans captured second-team All-CAC recognition. Like Harbold, both are former York-Adams League standouts.
New Oxford grad Brooke Krebs was honored as an outside hitter, while Bermudian Springs grad Madyson Whitcomb was selected as a middle hitter. Krebs is a senior, while Whitcomb is a junior. It was the first CAC selection for both Krebs and Whitcomb.
York finished 20-9 overall this season, including a 4-3 mark in the CAC regular season. The Spartans' season ended with a CAC Tournament semifinal loss.
The 5-foot, 3-inch Harbold led the Spartans with 487 digs, averaging 5.73 digs per set, which led the CAC. She was also fourth on the team with 60 assists.
The 5-8 Krebs and the 6-foot Whitcomb were first and second for the Spartans in kills, kills per set and points. Krebs had 279 kills, averaging 2.76 kills per set, and 317 points (3.1 points per set). Whitcomb finished with 249 kills, good for 2.42 kills per set, and 309 points (3.0 points per set).
Krebs was fourth in the CAC in kills per set and fifth in kills, while Whitcomb led the CAC in hitting percentage (.398) and was fifth in blocks per set (0.93). Whitcomb paced York in blocks with 96.
