Reaction to LeBron James’ homecoming on Twitter

For the last four years, LeBron James proved to be a polarizing NBA superstar since he left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat. Even some six hours away from Cleveland in York County, James had his fans and detractors.

Scribbles from the PIAA boys’ volleyball championships notebook

Cleaning out the notebook with thoughts and leftovers from Saturday’s PIAA boys’ volleyball championships …

Best in show >> While Central York can easily lay claim to best in Pennsylvania, regardless of classification, Northeastern supplied the most impressive performance on the floor Saturday at Rec Hall.

Northeastern coach Matt Wilson hugs Matt Hollinger as he hands out medals after the PIAA Class AA championship game Saturday in State College. Northeastern swept Ambridge, 3-0, to win its second straight title and its third in five years. (Kate Penn — GameTimePA.com)

They not only swept Class AA No. 1 Ambridge, they dominated the Bridgers. Remember, this same Ambridge team shocked Central York in finals of the Panthers’ Koller Classic. This same Ambridge team also had clout over the Bobcats by taking two of the three games they played this season.

Didn’t matter.

The closest Ambridge got to challenging Northeastern came in the opening game, when it registered 20 points. The next two saw only 15 and 14 points from the WPIAL force. Something clicked with Northeastern in the postseason. Bobcats coach Matt Wilson suggested Central York played a role with its demolition of them in the YAIAA championship.

Athletes of the Week, June 2-7

Entering the spring season, we had a hunch that we’d be covering local teams all the way to the end of the PIAA boys’ volleyball tournament.

And on Saturday, Northeastern and Central York capped the spring season with an all-YAIAA volleyball championship sweep. The Bobcats beat Ambridge in Class AA, and about two hours later, the Panthers beat North Allegheny for the Class AAA crown.

Although the final scores were both 3-0, the matches felt different. Northeastern played arguably its best match of the season, surprising most observers by not giving up a game to No. 1-ranked Ambridge. And Central York kept up the calm but confident demeanor it had exhibited all season long to put the cherry on top of the sundae.

And while each team’s championship is commendable, they also make for a bit of local sports history.

This marks the first time since PIAA boys’ volleyball split into two classifications in 2007 that two teams from the same league won both titles.

So in honor of their accomplishments, we name both the Northeastern and Central York boys’ volleyball teams the YAIAA Athletes of the Week for the last week of the season. Congratulations to all of the Panthers and Bobcats on an excellent season.

And thanks to all of the athletes, fans, family members and friends who’ve participated in our Athlete of the Week polls this year. We’ll take a break from the polls until September, but keep an eye on the blog for some summer treats.

    Snap selfies for swag at the PIAA volleyball championships

    The GameTimePA team is gearing up for a PIAA boys’ volleyball championship match doubleheader on Saturday. We’ll be hunkered down all day at Penn State’s Rec Hall for Northeastern’s Class AA title game against Ambridge at 11 a.m., followed by Central York’s Class AAA title game against North Allegheny.

    I, for one, am really excited. My cohorts — reporters Matt Goul and Steve Navaroli, and photographer Kate Penn — are old pros when it comes to these things. But it’ll be my first time witnessing the state championship action first-hand.

    So I’d like to have a little bit of fun in between the bumps, sets and spikes. Fun in the form of selfies.

    We’ve gotten a kick out of how much our GTPA readers have embraced Matt and Steve. And I do mean you’ve literally embraced them:
