Basketball player Maya Finard and track runner Marshall Richardson are January’s Athletes of the Month!
With the winter sports season coming close to an end, York’s basketball and track teams have continued to impress . Two contributing factors to the success of girls varsity basketball and indoor track at York are the newest athletes of the month. Over the past few months, both Maya and Marshall have committed themselves to excelling personally and advancing their teams. Athletic Director Peter Bianco, as well as their coaches, are pretty proud of these two student athletes whose profiles will be displayed in the Pantherdome over the rest of the month.
As a sophomore, Maya has developed into a leader and force to be reckoned with on the court this year. She is one of our top rebounders and one of the hardest working girls on the team. She plays with passion and dedicates herself to every practice and game. Maya keeps the girls in check constantly with her compassion, confidence, and drive. Maya has truly become an all-around student athlete this season!
Marshall has demonstrated superb form this past month. He competes with passion and heart which pushes his performance to the next level. He had a great performance at the New Balance games in the 50m race. In the Ivy League Meets, the 300m race is his bread and butter, decreasing his time each and every meet. Along with his track performances, Marshall excels as a teammate and pushes them to be better at each and every practice. Marshall qualified for the NYSAIS Qualifier meet in February with a chance to compete against the city’s best runners.
