The jumbled York-Adams League Division I girls’ volleyball race got a little more jumbled on Monday night.
Spring Grove was coming off an emotional 3-1 triumph over rival Central York on Thursday night that appeared to put the Rockets in the D-I driver’s seat.
Monday, however, Spring Grove dropped a 3-2 decision at Dallastown.
Also on Monday, South Western grabbed a 3-1 victory over visiting Central.
When the dust settled, Spring Grove and South Western were tied for the division lead at 8-2, while Central York is a half game back at 8-3. Dallastown moved to 6-4.
Spring Grove entered the night ranked No. 6 in the state in Class 3-A by the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association.
