Eastern York's Evelyn Whiteside is the two-time defending York-Adams League Class 2-A girls' singles tennis champion.
  • The York-Adams League girls' tennis singles tournaments start Thursday.
  • In Class 3-A, New Oxford freshman Anya Rosenbach is the No. 1 seed.
  • In Class 2-A, Eastern York's Evelyn Whiteside, the two-time defending champ, is the No. 1 seed.

A freshman and a two-time defending champion have earned the No. 1 seeds for the upcoming York-Adams League girls’ tennis singles tournaments.

In Class 3-A, New Oxford’s Anya Rosenbach got the No. 1 seed over the defending league 3-A champion, Red Lion’s Lexi Lakatosh, who won the 2020 crown as a freshman.

During the regular season on Sept. 13, Rosenbach defeated Lakatosh, 6-2, 6-0.

In 2-A, Evelyn Whiteside of Eastern York is the top seed and will attempt to win a third consecutive crown. Whiteside, a senior, competes independently in the high school season because Eastern does not have a girls’ tennis program.

West York Alisa Steele, who went unbeaten in York-Adams Division II action this season, is the No. 2 seed in 2-A.

The other 3-A singles seeds are: Central York’s Rachel Haupt at No. 3, South Western’s Sarah McComas at No. 4, Susquehannock’s Peyton Joines at No. 5, Gettysburg’s Kim Heinzelmann at No. 6, New Oxford’s Allison Horick at No. 7, Red Lion’s Sophie Lanius at No. 8 and Central York’s Audrey Stewart at No. 9.
