Congratulations to Brendan Dunleavy (Lacrosse), Sara Toukatly (Softball), Eric Starr (Baseball) and Ben Parker (Basketball). They are Mohonasen’s most recent WOW (Warrior of the Week) award winners. Each week, the Athletics Department selects two student-athletes (modified, JV or varsity level) for WOW awards based on accomplishments that include:
  • A significant impact to a contest in the week prior to selection; or…

  • Demonstration of excellent leadership, sportsmanship, noticeable improvement/effort, or community or public service 

Warriors of the Week – April 29

Brendan Dunleavy

On April 30th against Lansingburgh, Brendan scored a goal and recorded five assists. The Schenectady-Mohonasen boys varsity lacrosse team would go on to win that game by the score of 18 to 5 to record their first win since becoming a merged lacrosse program. Aside from having a hand in 1/3 of his team’s goals, Brendan also had multiple ground balls and clears. Well done, Brendan!

Sara Toukatly

Sara had an excellent week last week. In three games, she collected six hits and drove in three runs.  She was also a dominant pitcher for her team. Against Cobleskill-Richmondville, she fired a no-hitter! In that game, she struck out 13 of the 17 batters that she faced. Congratulations, Sara!

Warriors of the Week – April 15-26

Eric Starr

Eric plays on the varsity baseball team but is not physically able to play for the remainder of the season. However, Eric has continued to help serve his team.  He has remained one of the first players to arrive to practice and one of the last to leave. With his arm in a sling, he is retrieving foul balls, spotting the pitcher and catcher in between innings and picking up his teammates when he can. He is also the main reason the team took on Ben Parker as their manager this season. Eric has taken Ben under his wing and helped make him feel part of the team.

Ben Parker

Ben is a member of Mohon’s unified basketball team. In the first game of the season against Fort Plain, Ben scored 11 points, played excellent defense and was at his greatest when his greatest was needed. The team beat Fort Plain, 51-36.  He also makes time to serve as an assistant manager to the varsity baseball team. He even got to throw out the first pitch at a game earlier this season. We are proud of you, Ben!

Warriors of the Week – April 8

Matti Muller 

Matti earned two victories on the mound over league opponents, Ichabod Crane and Schalmont, only surrendering one earned run in both games combined.  She also contributed offensively. She hit two doubles and drove in four runs in the victory. This past weekend, the team competed in the Scotia tournament, where Matti earned another win on the mound.
Elijah Harris
Elijah won the high jump in last Tuesday’s league meet against Schalmont and Cobleskill.  Then, at the Niskayuna Warrior Classic, Elijah won the high jump with a personal best 6’4″.  This was also a meet record for the invitational. He beat the next closest competitor by six inches and automatically qualified for the New York State Championship in June.

Warriors of the Week – April 1

Natalia Sawyer
Natalia won the 200 m and 400 m dash in Mohonasen’s Colonial Council opener on Tuesday, April 2nd.  On Saturday, April 6th the girls track team competed at the New Paltz Invitational where Natalia won the 400 m dash over 54 other competitors!  In doing so, she broke the school record for the 400 meters.  In addition to winning this event, Natalia was on the 400 m relay team that won 1st place and the 1600 m relay team that placed 2nd.  All in all, Natalia contributed 28 points at the invitational for her team.
Jonathan Caffarella
In Mohonasen’s league opener win at Lansingburgh, Jon had two hits and scored the go-ahead run for his team.  Jon also contributed on defense.  Jon struck out 8 batters in three innings to record the save after entering the game with the bases loaded in the 5th inning. Jon’s coaches note that he leads by example. He never complains and gives his best effort at all times.
