Athlete of the Month

 Though the month of Aril is typically known for its profuse rain showers, this year, April at York Prep was instead filled with supreme sportsmanship. With the spring athletic season underway, the hard work of student athletes was on full display. Athletic Director Peter Bianco selected two great kids as April’s Athletes of the Month and don’t worry, it wasn’t an April Fools joke.

Rusty posted two wins in the month of April as the starting pitcher for the Varsity Baseball Team. One of those games he threw a complete game, 3 hitter. On top of that, he had 13 strikeouts in that game. When he is not throwing heat on the mound, he is a stellar center fielder. His flawless play in the field limits runs. On the other side of the ball, he is among the team leaders in RBI’s and hits.
