As the school year reaches towards it’s end and the spring sports season picks up steam, all of our York athletes are playing hard and doing their best. Two of these talented student athletes have done a particularly good job of standing out as leaders for their teams. Here are our athletes of the month!
Junior, Ira Heppard has been a jolt of energy for this year’s York Prep baseball team. As a constant threat on the base paths, Ira’s aggressive base running has already helped him score five runs on the season. While in the field, Ira has filled in at catcher and also makes stellar plays when he plays in the outfield. So far the Panthers have won four games in a row, and Heppard’s contributions seem to have been the catalyst for the hot streak.
Freshman, Vera Kozlova, is the Girls Tennis team’s first singles player and has been an asset to the new team with her knowledge, power, work ethic, determination and sportsmanship. She comes to every match and practice focused and ready to play, making her always exciting watch. York Prep is looking forward to what she can do in the rest of the spring season!
