Lockport earns plenty of all-NFL recognition

LOCKPORT —

Dozens of Lockport High School athletes have earned postseason accolades from the Niagara Frontier League.
Just a week after going further than any other volleyball team in LHS history, head coach Joe Whalen’s NFL and Section VI-champion Lions got the good news that seven players were named league all-stars.
Senior libero Eamon Yates and junior hitters Brad Schneider and Jason Donorovich were named to the NFL’s First Team for boys volleyball. Seniors Jack Whalen and Bryce Perry were named to the Second Team and seniors Shawn Moore and Jonah Ribbeck earned Third Team selections.
Rounding out the NFL’s First Team were Grand Island senior Brock Tetreault, Niagara-Wheatfield senior Sam Mattheus, North Tonawanda senior Joe Piotrowski and NT junior Donovan Book.
Lockport senior middle hitter and National Anthem singer Brittany Sanford earned a First Team all-star nod in girls volleyball. The Lady Lions were coached by Kim Lockie.
Others named to the NFL First Team are Niagara-Wheatfield seniors Katie Mazierski and Kelsey Yates, NT juniors Gabby Hansen and Leanna Metzger, Niagara Falls junior Toni Polk and Kenmore West sophomore Dana Mancuso.
LHS seniors Morgan Boss and Megan Schneider were named to the Second Team and Lady Lions juniors Jordyn Kwoka and Alyssa Wagner were named to the Third Team for girls volleyball.
Five Lady Lions soccer players earned all-star selections from the NFL.
Senior midfielder Jill Golding, senior defenders Allison Sakowski and Rachel Herbst, junior keeper Jayme Wadosky and sophomore striker Gretta Dry were all named to the First Team from head coach Mike Finnerty’s two-time NFL-championship team. Dry, who broke the school’s single season scoring record, was named NFL Player of the Year for girls soccer.
Three more Lockport players were named to the NFL’s Second Team. They are seniors Kennedy Smith and Kasey Johnston and junior Kim Hamilton. LHS senior Michelle Hamilton and junior Miranda Kiff earned Third Team nods from the NFL.
