Walt Whitman High School recently honored two distinguished athletes for the month of November. Christine Yasinsky was our female Athlete of the Month for November based on her outstanding season as a gymnast. Christine made All-County this past season, ranking her 19th in Suffolk County in All-Round Gymnastics. “I’ve been involved in gymnastics for as long as I can remember," said Christine. "It's so much a part of my life."

As a senior, Christine keeps busy with spring track and the Girls Leadership Organization. The college admission process is in full gear, and Christine confirms that wherever she goes, she hopes to continue with gymnastics. 

Mitchell Bermudez, Whitman’s All-County quarterback, is pleased to be our male November Athlete of the Month. “Our team went to the playoffs for our second year in a row,” said Mitchell, “and winning our first homecoming game in about 10 years was big.”  Mitchell is active in Whitman leadership serving as the GSO Treasurer this year. He will be playing lacrosse in the spring and is planning to attend the Merchant Marine Academy next fall.
