MVCC BASEBALL TEAM LENDS A HELPING HAND
The Mohawk Valley Community College Baseball Team recently made two community donations.
The Hawks Baseball Team once again donated children’s toys, books and games to the Holly Days program based out of Ilion NY which is operated by Mr. Ron Sterling.
The toy’s will go to children in the Mohawk Valley during the Holidays.
This is the 5th year that the Baseball Team has made a donation to the Holly Days program. The second project that the squad completed was a donation to the Feed Our Vets program in Utica, NY.
The team sold and proudly wore camouflage t-shirts this fall.
The Hawks were able to raise $500 to donate to the Program. Mark Smith-Vice President of the Feed Our Vets Program is pictured receiving the check from the team.
FORMER RFA BLACK KNIGHT FAMOLORO EARNS FIELD HOCKEY HONOR

Two St. John Fisher College student-athletes have received weekly honors from the Empire 8 Conference. Danielle Famolaro was named as the Empire 8 Field Hockey Defensive Player of the Week, while Jason Beaumont was tabbed as the Conference’s Football Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending September 9, 2012.
The freshman made three stops against Brockport on Wednesday before making a career-high 15 saves in 1-0 win over Susquehanna on Saturday, as the Cardinals were out-shot 27-4 in the game. On Sunday, Famolaro recorded nine saves in the loss to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Beaumont scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to help No. 9 Fisher erase a 10-point deficit for a 28-24 win at Washington and Jefferson on Saturday. Trailing 24-14 early in the fourth quarter, Beaumont connected on a 25 yard touchdown pass to pull the Cardinals within a field goal.
Fisher then took its first and only lead of the game with 5:59 left in the fourth quarter. On a 3rd-and-9 play from the Fisher 9, quarterback Ryan Kramer found Beaumont again, this time for a 91-yard touchdown strike down the right side line to give the Cardinals the lead. It was the second-longest reception in Fisher history.
Beaumont, who transferred to Fisher last year and was a standout pitcher for the Fisher baseball team this past spring, pitching a complete-game win over eventual national-champion Marietta College in the NCAA Division III Regionals, finished the game with 116 yards.
The field hockey team returns to action at 4 p.m. on Tuesday and will host Houghton College, while the football team hosts University of Rochester at 7 p.m. on Saturday in Courage Bowl VIII, a game dedicated to the children of Camp Good Days.
