Special Announcement from the Athletic Department 

Athlete of the month for April: 


For track and field: Jenna Wyant: 

Jenna, a sophomore, has been an instrumental athlete on the track throughout the month of April. Jenna has consistently placed in top 3 in her events to help lead the team to a record of 4-0 in dual meets. During the Olean invitational she placed 4th overall in the 400 meter dash and was a part of the 400 meter relay team and the 1600 meter relay team that placed 3rd and 2nd respectively. At the most recent invitational, “The Falconer Invite”, she placed 3rd overall in the 100 meter dash, 2nd in the 400 meter dash, and was a part of the 400 meter relay and 1600 meter relay place 1st for both events.


Kyle North

Kyle, a sophomore, has also been a significant athlete both on the track and in the field. Like Jenna, Kyle has also consistently placed in top 3 in his events to help lead his team to a record of 4-0 in dual meets. At the Olean Invitational he placed 6th in the 100 meter dash. At the Falconer invitational he placed 5th overall in both the 100 meter dash and long jump.



The pitcher/catcher combo of Mallory Welty and Mattison Foster. In the first nine games of the season Mallory has thrown 60 strikeouts, while only walking 13 batters and maintaining an ERA of 1.98. Her batting average is second on the team at an astounding 0.639, scoring 16 runs, and tallying 17 RBI’s. Her ability to stay calm and collected is a big reason for us being undefeated this season. Mattison Foster has been a machine behind the plate and is working her way into being one of the most feared catchers in the area all while carrying the leading batting average on the team. She currently swings a 0.645 batting average, and has scored 19 runs, and brought in 14 RBI’s. Her contributions in the field and at the plate are an invaluable asset to our team.






Maxwell Yehl -  In April, Maxwell compiled a 640 batting average with 15 RBIs, 23 runs scored, and 3 homeruns. On the mound, Maxwell was 2 and 0 with 25 strikeouts in 9 innings pitched.


Michael Cole - Michael hit a robust 643 during the month of April, to go along with 3 homeruns, 23 runs scored, 15 RBIs, and 18 stolen bases. On the mound, Michael has a 1.50 ERA and 15 strikeouts while only allowing 2 hits in 9 innings.



Ryan Perkins

 Ryan was the medalist in our home match at Bolivar with a score of 46. He followed that up with a 48 at Birch Run which helped us defeat Allegany-Limestone. Ryan is our number 1 golfer, and is by far our most consistent. Wish him luck as he heads to the sectional qualifier this coming Monday.


Congratulations to these athletes! Please see Mrs. Colligan for your certificate and T-shirt.
