Super Saturday, super rivalry

It's long been known the York-Clover rivalry is second to none in the high school ranks, regardless of the sport.

With this in mind, York Comprehensive High athletic director Steve Boyd and Clover AD Carroll Hester came up with the idea of a spring bonanza to showcase the rivalry in an April 12 multiple-sport format.

The event will include eight York-Clover games, all at YCHS, beginning at 2 p.m. and concluding around 10 p.m.

Boyd said the $4 admission price is a "real deal" for the avid fan base from both communities.

"It's a good opportunity for fans to watch York and Clover teams play Saturday afternoon and evening," Boyd said. "We're excited about hosting Super Saturday and look for a big turnout."

Hester echoes Boyd's sentiments in describing the inaugural event.

"Steve and I got together and decided to give it a try," Hester said. "It's a neat thing. We're excited.

"Both communities have outstanding support and fans can watch all of the action at one location."

Fans attending the games won't leave hungry, assured Boyd.

The YCHS Athletic Booster Club is sponsoring a fish fry from 2 to 7 p.m. in the school bus parking lot.

Fish or chicken plates prepared by Graham's Seafood are being presold at $7 per plate.

Tickets are available at the YCHS Athletic Department office, 684-1505. Fish and chicken plates also will be sold the day of the games.

Super Saturday starting times include:

Girls jayvee soccer, 2 p.m.; boys jayvee soccer, 3:30 p.m.; jayvee baseball, 4 p.m.; jayvee softball, 4 p.m.; girls varsity soccer, 5 p.m.; varsity baseball, 6:30 p.m.; varsity softball, 6:30 p.m.; boys varsity soccer, 7 p.m.

The York-Clover action shifts to Clover High School for Super Friday on April 18.

Jayvee baseball, 4:30 p.m.; jayvee softball, 5 p.m.; boys tennis, 5 p.m.; jayvee boys soccer, 5:30 p.m.; varsity softball, baseball and boys soccer, 7 p.m.
