Basketball players Sahai Stevens and Ian O’Connor are November’s Athletes of the Month!
Only a few weeks into the winter sports season, York’s four basketball teams are already doing very well. Two contributors to the success of girls varsity and boys junior varsity basketball at York are our latest athletes of the month. Thus far, Sahai and Ian have dedicated much of their energy and time to improving their skills and increasing synergy for their respective teams. Athletic Director Peter Bianco, as well as their coaches, sing praises about the November Athletes of the Month whose profiles are currently being displayed in the Pantherdome for the coming weeks.
She brings so much energy, enthusiasm, love, and drive to the court every day causing everyone around her to want to step up their game. An exciting player to watch, Sahai is a force to be reckoned with as she already has 59 points in just three games; 14 against FASNY, 26 points against Steiner, and 19 points against Garden. Sahai is a team player and displays incredible sportsmanship on and off the court. Always a pleasure to coach, her drive to get better and improve upon her game is quite admirable. Be sure to get out to one of our games to watch Sahai play her heart out and sink several 3’s!
During the month of November, Ian greatly contributed to the two wins for the boys junior varsity basketball team. Against Rudolf Steiner, Ian single handily kept York in the game with his rebounding both on the offensive and defensive side. He tallied double digit rebounds along with double digit points that led them to the win. The energy he creates both in practices and games is a huge asset to the team! Come watch Ian and the rest of the boys junior varsity basketball team compete all winter long!
