York-Adams swim meet, York Sports Night on as scheduled
The first day of the York-Adams League Swimming Championships are on as scheduled on Thursday.
Because of Thursday morning's snow, a few York County schools were closed completely, while many others were on two-hour delays.
The storm, however, produced far less snow than predicted by weather forecasters, and by mid-morning, most roads were simply wet, not snow-covered.
Swimming action will get started at 5 p.m. Thursday at Central York High School with girls’ competition in the following events: 200 medley relay, 200 freestyle, 200 individual medley, 50 freestyle, 100 butterfly and 200 freestyle relay. The boys' competition, in the same events, will immediately follow the girls' races.
The championships will conclude Friday back at Central York, again starting at 5 p.m.
Sports Night still on: The York Area Sports Night program at Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Conference Center Terrace Room is also still on as scheduled on Thursday.
The Sports Night program will feature a public celebrity reception and silent auction from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Fans will have the opportunity to meet the celebrities up close, gather autographs and bid on sports memorabilia to benefit the York Area Sports Night scholarship program. Tickets for that event are $100 at the door.
There will also be an exclusive celebrity dinner with a live auction from 6:15 p.m. until 8 p.m. for celebrities, hosts, sponsors and guests.
In a departure from previous years, there will not be evening celebrity reception following the celebrity dinner.
Among the guests expected are Hall of Famers Shane Conlan, Bruce Sutter and John Randle.
Penn National cancels program: At least one area sporting event was canceled Thursday. Penn National's live racing show scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday will not be held. Live racing at Penn National is set to resume at 6 p.m. Friday.
