May a Good month for Mohigans
by Johhny Mohigan - May 2004
During the month of May the Mohigan Basketball Program had many honors come
its way. Former Mohigan point guard, Zach Spiker moved on and took an
assistant coaching job at Cornell and Ben Torsney and Kameron Law made their
college plans final.
Zach Spiker, starting point guard on the 1995 Mohigan team, can be
remembered shelling out assist after assist during his senior season. Zach
was one of the hardest workers we ever had at MHS, said longtime coach Tom
Yester. During the summer between his junior and senior season he recorded
over 28,000 shots. Zach went on to prep school at The Hill, then to
Ithaca University where he played two years before becoming a graduate
assistant at Winthrop University. He later joined coach Belein&Mac226;s staff at
WVU as an administrative assistant. In the past few weeks he accepted his
first assistant coaching job at Cornell in Upstate New York. Good Luck, Zach!
Ben Torsney accepted an offer to play basketball at Allegheny
College in Pennsylvania, recently. Ben who averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds
this past season, helped lead the Mohigans to their third straight state
tournament appearance. Morgantown finished with a 22-3 record and ranked
number one in the state at the end of the regular season. Good Luck, Ben!
Finally, Kameron signed to play basketball at West Virginia State,
recently. Kameron played a significant role on the past three MHS teams
which had a combined record of 66-10. The 6'7 wing player averaged 12
points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks per game this season. Good Luck, Kameron!
Tyler Benson will make his college decision soon. He has many offers
to continue his career. The MHS program has never experienced this much
success on the court or now off the court. The dedication and commitment of
these players and their coaches has made this possible. We are proud of all
of our Mohigans!
