Track and Field

Junior hurdler and triple jumper Gabe Hue is ready for an exciting track season. 

“I am looking forward to winning my races, beating and setting new personal records, and moving on to Districts,” said Hue. 

Hue has been running track since his days in middle school and has enjoyed it. He hopes he will be able to continue to run track in college. 

“I plan on winning all my races and stacking up points for the team,” said Hue. 

Despite Hue only being a junior, he shows great leadership on the track and field team.

 “I like to lead by example and perform our stretches and drills to the best of my ability. I also try to help out the other guys by giving,” said Hue.

Hue participates in the 110m high hurdle, the 300m hurdle and the triple jump. 

“I hope to run a sub 16 second 110m, I want to run under 41 seconds in the 300m, and I hope to jump over 38 feet in the triple jump,” he said.

Hue always has had a love for track and field. His favorite part is running a race and hearing all the cheers and the screams.

During the season, Hue encourages the Central community to come and support the track team. 

“I hope to see a lot of people coming out to run on the team this year and to come out and support the team at our meets,” said Hue


Girl’s Lacrosse

Senior midfielder Hannah Cunningham is ready to take York County Lacrosse by storm. 

“I’m super excited to play one last season with my best friends. Most of the seniors and I have been playing year-round together for the last six years and we have become like a family. I’m also excited to get to know the underclassmen better and hope to watch the team come together,” said Cunningham.

Cunningham has played lacrosse since the age of eight, as her dad put her in a lacrosse camp. She is now playing her tenth year and she has plans of playing at Lebanon Valley College next year. 

Cunningham has big plans this year as she hopes the CYHS girl’s lacrosse team can make it back to counties. 

As a senior, Cunningham has to be a leader on the team. 

“I’ve been trying my best to set an example of having fun but also having the intensity we’ll need to have to win games, especially when warming up for our indoor games at Spooky Nook,” said Cunningham.” 

“I [also] plan to contribute as a leader on both the offensive and defensive sides of the field and hope to help the underclassmen grow as players,” said Cunningham.

Cunningham has had a love for lacrosse from a young age. 

“My favorite thing about lacrosse is the fast-paced aggressiveness of the game. It is one of the very few girls sports that have any type of contact and it definitely helps to keep things interesting,” said Cunningham.



Senior Peyton Ness is hoping her senior season is a grand slam. 

“This season, I am looking forward to it being my senior year, and to try to have a come up from last year, said Ness.  

Ness has plans on contributing to the team at centerfield and being a good teammate and role model to all of the younger players on the team. 

“I’ve been able to be a good role model to the younger players by making them feel comfortable on the team, and by helping show what the game really means,” said Ness.

Ness has been playing softball since the age of ten. She was inspired by her family to play. 

“I grew up in a house learning to love baseball and grew up always watching it. My brother played all of his childhood, and my dad inspired me to try softball,” said Ness.

Ness enjoys every aspect of the game. She loves making new friends playing and the intensity of the games.

This season Ness hopes to have an undefeated regular season and then make it far into the playoffs.


Boy’s Tennis

Tommy Elder, a senior, prepares for his second season playing tennis. Elder is looking forward to building the culture of the tennis program at Central York. 

“I plan to win some matches and also lead the team in a way where everyone grows in terms of ability and attitude,” said Elder. 

Elder encourages the underclassmen to have the right attitude when playing. 

“Just showing them that things aren’t always going to go your way, you will miss shots and lose points, but you have to stay in the game and continue to keep pushing, said Elder. 

He also has individual and team goals. 

“Play number one in singles and win some of my matches, and for the team to go above .500,” said Elder.

He was inspired to play tennis by his sister, three concussions and his experience playing high school sports. 

Elder enjoys the friendships and brotherhood created when playing tennis. 

“It’s a lot of fun to play, not stress-free, but I find myself enjoying myself while playing, and having a great time hanging with teammates,” said Elder.

Elder encourages people who may be interested in playing tennis to try it out. 

“Anyone who is interested in playing, especially underclassman come out and play, it’s a decision you won’t regret,” said Elder.
