YORK, PA – York College head men's basketball coach Matt Hunter has announced the Spartans will be conducting a "24-Hour Challenge" in conjunction with Spartan Advance and the York College Office of Development.
The challenge will be conducted on Friday, October 13. The challenge coincides with the start of practice which officially begins on Sunday, October 15.
The challenge allows Spartan alums, parents, fans and community members to make a financial impact on the men's basketball program.
"We have a rich history for men's basketball at York College and I am hoping to engage a number of our different supporters," says Hunter. "We have been very fortunate as a program to receive great support from our community, our alums and our families. I am hoping they accept the challenge and provide us with the extra support that enables our players to have an exceptional collegiate experience."
Hunter said the program will use the funds raised to increase the men's basketball recruiting budget, supply the program with better equipment and help give his Spartan squad a first class experience.
The Spartans return a wealth of talent from last year's 17-10 squad who advanced to the CAC semifinals before dropping a heart breaking double overtime loss at Salisbury.
"We return a great group of players who are focused on making this a memorable season," says Hunter. "More importantly, we have a tremendous group of young men that represent our program and York College in a way that will make all of our supporters proud."
The men's basketball "24-Hour Challenge" is in conjunction with the Spartan Advance, York College's official athletic booster club. Spartan Advance boasts over 900 members and is a driving force in our efforts to rise above and to build and maintain a thriving, contemporary intercollegiate athletic program, the Spartan Advance provides enhancements to our recruiting, travel and equipment budgets, and contributes to the support of additional coaching positions.
