Spartans Help out York Little League

YORK, PA – The York College softball team sports a stellar 36-9 record this season in a record-setting campaign that has been truly incredible. However, not only do the Spartans perform well on the diamond, they also do so in the community.

On Saturday, April 10, the members of the Spartan softball squad helped Little Leaguers in the York area.

Sixty players from the York Little League Softball program attended a clinic put on by the Green and White as youngsters in the area received instruction on hitting, fielding, and pitching from the Spartan squad.

“It was a great pleasure seeing our student-athlete interacting with the young softball players from the community,” Spartan head coach Nicki Starry said. “To be able to give back is a tremendous honor and to get to do so in a fun atmosphere is even better.”

Senior captain Heather Bormann (Brick, N.J./Brick Memorial) thoroughly enjoyed her time with the young ladies.

“It was a great experience,” the all-conference shortstop said. “Those little girls really look up to us and watching them improve in just a couple hours, knowing it's from what we taught them is a great feeling.  I was really happy to be a part of that.”
