This past week the Berkeley Springs High School Athletic Department released the names of the Chick Yost Freshmen Athletes of the Year. The two freshmen who received this honor were three sport standouts.
Isaac Harris was named the Chick Yost Freshman Male Athlete of the Year. Harris was a three sport athlete participating in cross country, wrestling and track. Harris was a regional qualifier in cross country this past fall. However, it was in wrestling where the freshman stood out.
Harris was the 2020 PVC Champion, Class A/AA Region I Runner-up, and finished fourth in the Class A/AA WV State Wrestling Championships. Harris finished his first high school varsity wrestling season with a record of 48-13. If track season had not been cancelled, Harris would have been a middle distance runner and high jumping for the Indians.
Lydia Fincham was named the Chick Yost Freshman Female Athlete of the Year.
Fincham was a three sport athlete participating in cheerleading, volleyball and track.
Last fall, Fincham juggled both varsity cheerleading and volleyball. Fincham was a solid player on the volleyball court for the Lady Indians in junior varsity contests.
Later in the season, Fincham was moved to the varsity roster for the final few games. If track season had not been cancelled Fincham would have been a hurdler and sprinter for the Lady Indians.
