YORK, PA - Three York College men's basketball players earned NABC (National Association of Basketball Coaches) Honors Court accolades as announced by the organization recently.
Graduated seniors Todd Maciejewski (Red Lion, Pa./Red Lion) and Chad Styer (Elizabethtown, Pa./Elizabethtown) were joined by rising senior Brian Stevko (Walnutport, Pa./Northampton) on the national list.

Styer had a solid year for the Spartans as he averaged 5.6 points and 1.9 rebounds per game for the Green and White. Styer played in all 26 games as he earned a start in eight of those contests. He shot 39.8% from three as he converted 39 triples for the year.
