Spartan Athletics

YCP field hockey player competes for the ball

York College's student-athletes represent the dedication and discipline necessary to race down a court or across a field, working with teammates to achieve a common (or literal) goal. They strive to reiterate these qualities across other tiers of student life, balancing their academic schedules with their sports commitments. The results of this diligence are fantastic. Over the years, our student-athletes have continued to be one of the most visible and positive elements of York College. Moreover, our ability to compete for conference championships each year and position ourselves for national success inspires student-athletes to reach their full potential in extraordinary and holistic ways. Investments in Spartan athletics include facility opportunities, endowment opportunities, and support of our coaches.

York College athletics has given me everything I could've asked for out of a college experience. Through my lacrosse experience, I am now lucky enough to continue my career with the Dallas Rattlers. With the amazing network that I gained through not only current and former lacrosse players, but also their families, I am working as an engineer at Harley Davidson. I am proud to call myself a Spartan.

Improving the on-field activities of these students will allow York College to continue to compete at ongoing high levels.
