STROHECKER: Eastern York adapts to life without star

, 505-5402/@P_StroheckerEastern York vs Conrad Weiser boys basketball

Eastern York boys’ basketball coach Jon Reichard didn’t even make it all the way to senior Jared Achterberg before he sensed the worst.

During a 65-50 win last Monday against York Tech, Achterberg sat on the court in a near panic, according to Reichard, after suffering a significant knee injury. Driving to the hoop, Achterberg jump-stopped, causing the trailing defender to slam into him and make his right knee lock and twist.

Achterberg experienced a torn ACL a few years ago, so as soon as he felt the pain, he knew it was serious.
