District 3 girls' volleyball all-star teams are packed with York-Adams standouts

Central York's Tehya Shaw, right, has been named to the District 3 Girls' Volleyball All-Star First Team.

York-Adams League girls’ volleyball programs have enjoyed strong seasons this fall.

Spring Grove won a District 3 Class 3-A title by beating rival York Suburban in the championship match. Those two teams have also been ranked among the top five teams in the state all season in 3-A by the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association. The Rockets are currently ranked No. 1.

York Catholic, meanwhile, advanced to the district 2-A title match before falling to a powerhouse Trinity club ranked No. 2 in the state.

So, it’s not surprising that York-Adams players were well represented when the PVCA released its District 3 all-star teams.

The local league had 13 players earn first-team honors, while 24 total Y-A athletes were named to either a first team, a second team or a third team

Earning Class 4-A first-team honors were a pair of Central York players: Tehya Shaw, a 6-foot senior middle hitter, and Abbey Stiffler, a 5-foot, 8-inch senior setter. Shaw had previously been named the Y-A Division I player of the year. Those two players helped Central finish second in D-I behind Spring Grove.

In 3-A, Spring Grove had three first-team honorees: Hailey Wolfe, a 5-9 senior outside hitter; Nevaeh Wolfe, a 5-9 senior outside hitter; and Maddie Ruhland, a 5-8 senior setter.

Suburban had a pair of first-team 3-A selections: Eliana Rodgers, a 5-10 senior outside hitter, and Zoe Haines, a 6-0 senior opposite. Rodgers had previously been selected the Y-A D-II Player of the Year.

In 2-A, York Catholic featured three first-team picks: Adeline Phillips, a 5-9 junior outside hitter; Mia Citrone, a 5-5 senior libero; and Lindsey Beck, a 5-5 senior setter/outside hitter. Phillips was also the Y-A D-III Player of the Year.

Delone Catholic had two first-team players in 2-A: Olivia Snyder, a 5-5 senior libero/setter, and Makenna Mummert, a 5-8 senior outside hitter.

Littlestown’s Mikayla Orwig, a 6-1 senior outside hitter, also was recognized on the 2-A first team.

The other Y-A players earning district all-star honors were:

Central York’s Kara Davies, a 5-10 senior middle hitter, second team in 4-A.

Northeastern’s Ava Hunt, a 5-11 senior middle hitter, second team in 4-A.
