Christian Brothers Academy Athletics is pleased to announce that Brian Hill '18 (Varsity Cross Country) and John Askin '18 (Varsity Soccer) have been named the October/November Student-Athletes of the Month, sponsored by Tinton Falls Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy.
BRIAN HILL | SENIOR | VARSITY CROSS COUNTRY | MIDDLETOWN, N.J.
THE RUNDOWN: Hill has been the undisputed leader of the 2017 cross country season. The CBA senior won the individual Monmouth County title in October, and followed that up with an individual state championship in November. Meanwhile, the University of Michigan commit has been Christian Brothers' top finisher at every other major championship: the Manhattan Invitational, Shore Conference and Meet of Champions.
SOUNDBITE: "Brian represents everything a CBA student-athlete should be. I have never coached or taught a more passionate and hardworking athlete. Brian will finish his career as one of the best leaders CBA XC has ever had." - head coach Sean McCafferty
JOHN ASKIN | SENIOR | VARSITY SOCCER | HOWELL, N.J.
THE RUNDOWN: The only returning starter from the 2016 team, Askin emerged as CBA's coach on the field in 2017. The team captain anchored a defense that set a new program and state record with 16 shutouts in 24 wins. He captained the Colts to the NJSIAA South Sectional title and was pivotal in making CBA a 2017 state finalist. He ends his career as a state champion, two-time sectional champion, and a conference titleist.
SOUNDBITE: "John developed from a role player on last year's team to the leader of this year's championship team. I ask all of our players to bring their best attitude and effort to the field each day and John often brought much more. Over the past four years he learned how to be a teammate, a leader, and became the face of 2017 CBA Soccer." - head coach Tom Mulligan
