Mohawks Complete 2007 With 19 Wins & Great Memories
The 2007 Mohawk Baseball squad finished the season on a high note at Lanphier Stadium participating in the last athletic contest every played by an Ursuline Academy team. The game was one of the games that became part of a "farewell tour" of sorts for Mohawk Seniors & their parents. Senior 1st baseman Blaine O'Connell became the 1st Mohawk since Colby Luttrell to participate in the State Journal Area-AllStar games, where the small schools defeated the CS8 team for the first time since a change in format 5 years ago.

The Tomahawks closed out their fall season falling to Lincolnwoood in the regional championship game 8-3. Despite fielding only 10 players and sporting a lineup that included 2 5th & 2 6th grade players against teams consisting entirely of 7th & 8th graders, the team managed 4 wins.

Steve Rever Scales The "Wall"
Mohawk Junior Outfielder m Steve Rever, was simply unstoppable as he became the 1st Mohawk to be honored on the Wings, Etc. "Wall of Flame." Steve, who earlier in the day got his first varsity hit and RBI in the game vs Ursuline, put his mouth where his mouth was, enduring 16 punishing hot wings to be permanently enshrined on the Wall and in the hearts of all Mohawks. In Steve's honor there will be a permanent page chronicling his achievement which can be accessed by clicking HERE!

Friend Of Mohawk Athletics Award
Steve Brown, pictured below giving the infield a bath before the Lincolnwood game, was named the "Friend of Mohawk Athletics" recepient for 2007. Steve was honored for his years of service to diamond projects at both Memorial Field and the PMRA diamonds. Steve is one of the major reasons the Mohawks were able to get in 34 regular season games this year.
Photos From The Air
Curt Watkins took a series of photos of Morrisonville from the air over the weekend. Many include shots of Memorial field. Curt has taken fly over photos on several occasions in the past several years either because he likes Mohawk baseball or he fears the repercussions if he refused Coach M's request. Either way the Mohawks and Morrisonville ge the benefit so enjoy by hitting this site. Make sure and thank Curt when you get the chance. Fly Over Photos Link

Stable Clean-Up During State Fair: Mr Harmon (LLCC Ag Teacher & Mville School Board member) gave us a day of barn cleaning at the State Fair in August. We have Saturday evening, August 11th, beginning at 8:00 PM (will be there till after midnight). We make $500 for the work...we need at least 12 players and one adult (in addition to Coach M) to work. We will likely go early and spend some time at the fair that day
Pics From Gillespie From Rae Anne
Rae Anne has 100+ photos available from last night's regional game on her site. Click here to take a look at the shots she has. As most will recall, she donated a really nice team photo on canvas earlier in the year. She puts together some really nice combo shots, so if you are interested in something special, I'm sure she'll put it together for you. Below, Blaine O'Connell scores the tying run on Jacob Tarrant's 3 run homerun. Jake's homerun put the Mohawks on top to stay, 7-6, in the bottom of the 5th.
Snyder Memorial Project
The project is drawing closer to completion. Coach Ferrill demonstrated great stone carving skill as he cut the limestone to fit the memorial. With the pieces ready to be placed, John should complete the masonary work this weekend (the pavilion area will finally be clean again just in time for the season to end!). The limestone was the capstone for the old High School building in its previous life so we have some history tied into the piece. All that remains will be to place the last 3 pieces of limestone, do the masonary cleaning on the brickwork, and place the plaque in its permanent place. It may take a little longer to finish the limestone...still some question as to how to clean it up.
