YAIAA Singles Tournament
Delone Catholic’s Matt Steinberg flipped the script on Augie Citrone in a big way, and the result was a YAIAA championship.
Steinberg upset the top seed in straight sets on Saturday at South Western to claim the Class 2A title. Citrone had defeated Steinberg 6-0, 6-2 in their regular-season match on April 1, but the Squire powered his way to a 6-2, 6-1 triumph on Saturday.
Steinberg secured a spot in the upcoming District 3 singles tournament by reaching the YAIAA finals, and he’ll look to add a doubles invitation when the 2A league tourney kicks off today at Red Lion. Steinberg and Paul Tily are seeded second behing Augie and Jack Citrone of West York.
In the YAIAA Class 3A finals, Dallastown star Holden Koons cruised to his fourth straight league title by blanking York Suburban’s Parker Lando 6-0, 6-0. Koons, a James Madison University commit and 2018 PIAA runner-up, did not give up a point in his five tournament matches.
Dallastown claimed three of the top four places with Jonathan Burns placing third and Sebastian May fourth.

New Oxford 6, Delone Catholic 5
Josh Rickrode cranked a two-run, walk-off home run to give the Colonials a win over the Squires in the finals of the New Oxford Tournament on Saturday.
The opening two games of the tournament were played on 4/13, with both Delone and New Oxford notching victories. Unable to play the championship game that day, the tournament finale was pushed back to Saturday.
Down 5-4 heading into their last at-bats, the Colonials rallied when Devon MacGregor roped a leadoff single before Rickrode’s blast gave the Ox (6-7) the title in its tourney for the third straight year.
Rickrode was 2-for-4 with three runs scored, and Brevin Neveker went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI for the hosts.
Avery Kuntz was 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBI, and Adam Pascoe poked a pair of base hits for the Squires (5-9).
Jack Moore and Pascoe both doubled.
