Central York at Dallastown swimming

For the past 30 years, you could count on two things with Dallastown High School swimming — that it would perform at a dominant level in the York-Adams League and that Rich Howley was the coach behind it all.

Sunday, at the end of this year’s team banquet, Howley announced that he was retiring as coach of the Wildcats, along with his position as a technology education teacher at the middle school.

“Basically, it was for my family and time for my family,” Howley said about his reason for retiring. “I lived and breathed with swimming and the kids at Dallastown, both in the classroom and in the pool, but now my family and changing dynamics, as far as my kids getting older and wanting to do things, and I want to be part of that.”
