York athlete series: ‘Arguably the best girls’ volleyball player the area has ever seen’

Jen German heads the list of all-time best Dallastown Area High School athletes. Where does she rank on list of greatest York County prep athletes? Background posts: Who is rightful owner of area boys’ basketball scoring record?, Northeastern last York/Adams public school to field football team and ‘When people are looking back into Pa. basketball history … it’s great’.

A 22-week York Daily Record/Sunday News series story opines about Shannon Bortner Werner, Dallastown Area High School class of 1998: “She is arguably the best girls’ volleyball player the area has ever seen.” …

It goes on to explain that Shannon was a two-time YAIAA player of the year, a two-time all-state honoree, and earned a full ride to Penn State. (Check out Dallastown’s Top 10 list.)
Anytime someone puts forth a top 10 list, it’s sure to draw controversy. The YDR/YSN’s Frank Bodani has done that in the newspaper and on the Web at York’s Greatest Athletes.
