Nine York-Clover events slated for Friday
YORK Friday is a York-Clover high school sports fan’s delight, with nine events on tap at York Comprehensive High School.
The same format was used April 4, when nine York-Clover events were held at Clover High School before large crowds.
“We encourage local fans to come out and support our spring sports teams against rival Clover Friday,” said YCHS Athletic Director Steve Boyd.
Clover High School Athletic Director Carroll Hester echoed Boyd’s sentiment: “Steve and I got together on the scheduling of nine York-Clover events in one day,” said Hester. “We had all of the action at Clover April 4, and it was well-attended.”
The York stadium will be the scene of four soccer games Friday, beginning with the York-Clover girls’ junior-varsity soccer game at 4 p.m. Boys’ JV soccer will begin 5:15 p.m.
The York-Clover girls’ varsity teams will play at 6:30 p.m., with the boys’ varsity team’s closing out the day’s schedule at 8 p.m.
York and Clover varsity tennis, girls’ JV softball and boys’ jayvee baseball all begin at 5 p.m.
The York-Clover varsity baseball game will begin 6 p.m. at the YCHS baseball complex, with the girls’ varsity softball game slated for 7 p.m..
