Athlete of the Week

December 17th - 23rd:
1. Brianna H. - Bri is a junior on the girls basketball team. Last week she really stepped up big scoring 11 points and grabbing 9 rebounds in the game versus Keshequa. Bri seems to be settling in as just two nights before versus Warsaw, she had a great all-around game. She scored 8 points, had 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals! The team will be looking to her to continue working hard on the court and become another top threat for the other teams to watch our for. Great Job Brianna!

2. Sawyer M. - Sawyer is a junior at York who wrestles for Pavilion/York. Over the weekend at the Steve Garland Memorial Tournament, Sawyer represented the home team well by winning 4 of his five matches. Last week he also won a great match versus his opponent from Letchworth! Sawyer has been improving each practice and is really starting to dominate his opponents. Hard work mixed with his talent will put him in a position to win on any given night. Great work Sawyer!

December 10th-16th:
1. Ryley E. - Ryley is a junior on the boys basketball team and is a 2nd year starter. Last week versus Letchworth, he put up 24 points, and just missed the double-double with 8 rebounds. Ryley has been averaging 15 points and 10 rebounds a game! He has dedicated a lot of time to honing his skills and getting stronger and because of his efforts, Ryley will be able to compete consistently at a high level. Any time a player is hovering around a double-double each game, the team is bound to see success and he is not the only team member consistently in that position! When Ryley and the rest of the team are scoring like they can and work hard on defense, they will be tough to beat this season. Keep up the good work Ryley!

2. Mr. Sattora - Last week, Mr. Sattora was part of the York High School Hall of Fame inductions for his participation on the 1973-1979 cross country teams! In 1973, the York Boys Cross-Country team put together its first undefeated season of 14 wins and no losses. They won the Class "C" Sectional Championship and represented York and Section V at the New York State Championship Meet in Binghamton where they finished 6th out of 8 teams.This pattern of excellence would be repeated into the 1980 season before they lost another dual meet. During that time, the YCS cross-country team won an impressive 104 dual meets in a row and stood as a National Record until 1980. Congratulations to Mr. Sattora on this great honor!!

December 3rd - December 9th:
1. Kim D. - Kim is a senior on the girls basketball team. She started the season in stride with a double-double as she scored 27 points and had 11 rebounds in thte team's 44-40 win over Alexander! She followed up her first game with another double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds against a tough Dansville team! Kim has become one of the most reliable athlete's because she has spent a majority of her free time preparing for this season whether in the weight room or on the court. Her pure passion for basketball and her desire to be at her best will allow her the opportunity to be successful each night. Great job Kim!

September 11th -17th:
1. Jimmy L. - Jimmy is a senior on the Pavilion/York soccer team. He plays defense for the Gophers, a position that often goes unrecognized. Defenders aren't noticed when they are doing their job correctly and he has definitely been doing his job as he rarely gets caught out of position. Jimmy has the ability to read and dissect plays before they happen and is therefore able to break up the offense effectively and consistently. This season, he has been working hard in practice and it has shown in his ability to play a full 80 minute game without trouble. Jimmy has been a main factor in keeping the team in every game. The boys have been very competitive against the toughest teams in the league. Be sure to come watch a game and cheer on the boys. Great Job Jimmy!!

2. Maria T. - Maria is a senior on the girls soccer team. She has stepped into the starting goal keeper position and has absolutely proved herself worthy of the role. Last week, she has gave up just 2 goals in three games!! She as a 77.5 save percentage on the season! Maria has stayed focused throughout each game and continues to make the necessary big time saves for the team. She is a main factor in the competitiveness of this girls team! Great job Maria!!

September 3rd - 10th:
1. Emma M. - Emma is a senior captain on the Girls Varsity Soccer team. She has had a great start to her senior year and has stepped up her game in every way. Since the season kicked off, she has scored 5 goals and has contributed with 2 more assists! As a captain, she has led the team in more than just goals. She has led by example with her discipline and increased level of intensity in both practices and games! The team is currently 2-2. Every team member has worked harder in the first few weeks than ever before and they will be drawing on that to drive them to success deep into the season. Come cheer on the girls team Friday night (9/15) as they face a tough Perry/MM squad!! Great start Emma!
