Alexa Taylor Named the Spartan Athlete of the Week

YORK, PA - York College is proud to annouce that senior field hockey midfielder Alexa Taylor (York, Pa./Red Lion) has been named the Spartan Athlete of the Week for the week ending October 30, 2016.

Taylor led the Spartans to a pair of conference wins this past week as York has advanced to the CAC semifinals. Taylor began the week with three assists on a trio of corners as the Spartans key inserter on penalty corners. She assisted on all three of Ali Posey's goals. She also spearheaded a defense that held Frostburg State off the board as the Bobcats had just two shots in the Spartan win.

Taylor followed that up with a goal on two shots in the 3-0 win over St. Mary's in the CAC first round win on Sunday. The Taylor led defense did not allow St. Mary's to get a shot in the game as York posted their fifth shutout of the year and second of the week.

Taylor leads the team in assists with six while she has also scored three goals for 12 points.

Taylor is a psychology major and is the daughter of Jeff and Steph Taylor.
