Congratulations to Alex Gannon (Varsity Football) and Liv Raucci (Varsity Girls Soccer). They are Mohonasen’s first WOW (Warrior of the Week) award winners of the year.

- The athlete should have made a significant impact to a contest within the nomination time frame, which is the week prior to selection; or…
- The athlete must have shown excellent leadership, sportsmanship, noticeable improvement/effort, community service and/or other notable trait(s).
Alex Gannon (Varsity Football)
The Mohonasen varsity football team earned a convincing win in their season opener over South Glens Falls, 58-14 and Alex Gannon was a big reason why. Alex scored a total of four touchdowns on the night! He rushed for two scores, had a receiving touchdown and returned a kickoff for a touchdown. He also intercepted a pass on defense. Alex and the team will travel to Queensbury this Saturday for their Week 2 matchup.
Liv Raucci (Varsity Girls Soccer)
Liv Raucci was a top performer last week for the girls soccer team. Liv scored five goals and had two assists in the season opener victory over Lansingburgh. She scored another two goals in a victory on the road over Ichabod Crane in her next game to give her seven goals and two assists in one week! Liv led the team in goals last season, scoring 19 as a junior. Her coach describes her as a great role model, who is always positive and hungry to learn.
