Mohigan News A Tribute to our Seniors
By Johnny Mo Higan
Saturday, March 1, marks the end of the home season for our team. We
had just one returning starter (Seth Fogarty) from last year's 22-4
team. This season, MHS is currently 16-3 and clinched the NCAC
Championship! Way to go! This will be the last time to see our seniors
take the floor at the MHS gym. I remember watching several of these
young men play at the elementary level a few years ago, and it's been
very exciting to watch them play at the varsity level. Let's spend a
few minutes talking about our seniors:
Dan Dalton, Guard ' Dan missed the first 7 games due to injuries
suffered in a November car accident. Averaged 1.1 points per game.
Dan's quick on defense and has great ball handling ability. I expect
him to continue to improve as the team goes on to the State tournaments.
Seth Fogarty, Guard, Averaged 11.6 points per game, and 51% at the
free-throw line. The free-throw stats are misleading, as Seth has 95
free-throw attempts so far this season. Seth has great speed, passing,
and shooting ability. He will be attending the University of
Vito Minutelli, Center , Averaged 1.1 points per game, and 74% from the
free-throw line. Out of all of the Mohigans, Vito is probably the best
player to watch when he's on defense -- it wasn't often that the offense
could get the ball past him when he was positioned under the basket.
Not only is Vito a good athlete, he was inducted into the National Honor
Society on February 7.
Chad Murray, Guard, Averaged 8.1 points per game, and 87.5% at the
free-throw line. During the last three games, he averaged 15.7 points
per game in the last three games. Chad has always had a natural
athletic ability, even when he played basketball in the elementary
Geremy Rodamer, Guard, The runner-up for the Kennedy Award signed with
Marshall on January 23. He's averaging 5.4 points per game and 45.5% at
the free throw line.
Matt Simpson, Forward, Matt's averaging 4.3 points per game and 31% at
the free throw line. Another great under-the-basket defender -- Matt
takes no prisoners! He's come a long way since he played elementary
basketball at North. He will be attending Marshall University in the
Tim Williams, Guard's 1.5 points per game.
Tim always gave 100% when he was in the game, and when on defense, he
could frequently out-run the offense.
Next week, I'll review the entire regular season, and talk about our
Saturday night is Senior Night, and the last home basketball game of the
season. I hope to see all of you there!
