2019 Inductees

Matthew Mancini, Class of 2006

Matthew Mancini was a three sport athlete in football, baseball and basketball at FFCS. He was a four-time varsity letter holder in football, earning 26 wins as starting quarterback. He helped take the team to sectionals three times, and the team twice won the Class B West Divisional Championships. He earned All-Conference and All-State recognition, was twice named the John L. Jackson MVP and was granted various awards from the NYS High School Football Coaches Association, the National Football Foundation and local news media outlets. He held every FFCS passing record upon graduating, and ranks among sectional and statewide passing records.

On the diamond, Mancini and his teammates were the undefeated Western Athletic Conference champions his junior and senior years. As the starting first baseman, he helped the team earn All-WAC and All-State recognition, and he was voted the best defensive player his senior year. He earned a WAC Scholar-Athlete Scholarship and holds a career .420 batting average. 

After graduating from FFCS, Mancini played four years of varsity baseball at Hamilton College. He also lettered in football as a freshman. 

In his professional career, Mancini has interned with the Washington Redskins and the football operations of Georgetown University and Princeton University. He is currently the director of football operations of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. 

Jennifer Sponenberg, Class of 1992 

Jennifer Sponenberg was a league and sectional indoor and outdoor track and field champion for five years at FFCS. She competed in the triple jump for both state and national championships. She reset her own record seven times during the 1991-92 season, and she is still the FFCS girls triple jump record holder for indoor and outdoor track. Team honors include outstanding field performer for outdoor track in 1991 and indoor track in 1992, and she was named the co-MVP for the outdoor track team in 1992. Sponenberg was also a member of the 1988 cross-country team that placed fifth in the state championships. 

Sponenberg continued her studies at Cortland University, competing in the NCAA championships for indoor track 1993 and outdoor track in 1994. She set school triple jump records for indoor track at the Cornell Invitational as a freshman in 1993, and for outdoor track in 1994. She also received the prestigious Red Letter Award from her coach in 1994, and earned a bronze medal at the Empire State Games that year. 

Sponenberg’s achievements off the track are perhaps even more admirable than her athletics career. She was diagnosed with brain cancer at the end of her senior year at Cortland in 1996. She had three classes left before graduating with a degree in elementary education. Whenever she had a remission, she took a class in Empire State College. She took her last class while she was in chemotherapy. She graduated in December 1999, and her last treatment was in March 2000. In September 2001, she began to substitute teach. 

When Sponenberg finished her brain cancer treatments, she joined Relay for Life and participated for many years, serving as keynote speaker four times. 

“I always remind them that they are here because they have chosen to celebrate life, and not to be victims, but survivors,” Sponenberg said.

Jager is a combat veteran who was deployed to Baghdad from 2004-05. She was awarded the Bronze Star for missions in Iraq. She was previously deployed to Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific in 2001 in support of ballistic missile testing.

As a six-time varsity letter holder in both indoor and outdoor track and field, Griswold graduated with the school record for the girls long jump, a record that was broken by her niece, Brittany Castelluccio. Griswold participated in the Empire State Games and the Junior Olympic Championships in Miami. 

Griswold also played volleyball as a two-time varsity letter holder, earning recognition as the Laura Gage Memorial MVP. She was a WTEN Athlete of the Week in 2004, and earned the U.S. Army National Scholastic Award for Academic & Athletic Excellence, and the U.S. Marine Corps Distinguished Athlete Award.

My coaches Mark Therrien and Dave Petersen are two of my highest esteemed mentors. I’m incredibly proud and extremely flattered to be inducted into the Hall of Fame because I know what the criteria is to be considered.”

2017 Inductees

Matt Sullivan – Class of 1978

Matt Sullivan was a multi-sport athlete in the mid-1970s, earning 10 varsity letters in football, basketball, baseball and outdoor track. As a high school football player, Sullivan was a member of two Tri-Valley championship teams, a two time all-league selection, as well as being voted team captain and MVP in his senior season. He graduated as the leading receiver in FFCS football history.

As a baseball player, he was a two-time all-conference pick and a starter on the 1977 Class C Section II title squad. On the basketball court, Sullivan was a three letter winner and a top scorer his senior year.

Sullivan switched to track in his senior spring and was a sprinter on the Tri-Valley title team, winning the league meet in both the 100 and the 400 relay.

After graduation, Sullivan enrolled at Alfred University, where he earned three varsity letters and was selected as an AP 2nd Team D-3 All-American receiver in 1980. That year, he set the Alfred University record for both single-season receptions (58) and yards (806).

Sullivan presently resides in Fonda and is the managing director of Kasson and Keller Corporation. He is also a long time member of the district’s Board of Education, currently serving as president.

Shane Smith – Class of 2010

In the spring of 2010, Shane Smith capped off his high school track career with a state title in the discus. A thrower in both indoor and outdoor track, Smith’s forte was in the discus and he did not disappoint, claiming first place in the NYSPHSAA championships. During his record-setting senior season, Smith achieved an all-time school and personal best of 182 feet. During the season he competed in and won both discus and shot put in several major invitationals.

Not limited to track, Smith also earned two varsity letters in football.

After high school, Smith enrolled at the University of Buffalo where he competed in both indoor and outdoor track and earned a bachelor’s degree.

2010 Boys’ Cross-Country Team

The 2010 Boys Cross Country Team was part of a group of runners who won four straight Division titles, League Championships, Class C Sectional Championships and earned them four straight New York State Championship appearances which includes winning a State Championship.

In that four year span the Fonda-Fultonville Cross Country team dominated the sport by going undefeated in league competition, which includes the final year in the Western Athletic Conference, (2009), and then three straight years in the Colonial Council, (2010-2012).

Team members included:

  • Kyle Geniti
  • Zak Godfrey
  • Mike Guiffre
  • Cody Russell
  • Cody Shave
  • Mike Scott
  • Tyler Angioli
  • Matt Hoffman
  • Omijah Piening
  • James Westoman

The team appeared in their first State Championship in 2009 which was in Plattsburgh, (Section 7). After a disappointing ninth place finish, the 2010 team made it their mission to return to states again.  Using the theme, “ONE TEAM; ONE TIME” as a constant reminder of the team concept involved in Cross Country and the importance of performing as a team at the biggest moments, the team rolled through the season and earned a spot at the Championships in Pawling, (Section 1). There, the Braves edged out Holland Patent of Section 3 by 3 points to win Fonda-Fultonville’s second New York State Class C Championship.

After a successful outing in 2010, the team returned to the State Championship two more times. In 2011, the Championships were held at Vernon-Verona-Sherill HS, (Section 3). There, the team finished 3rd with 79 points only to be edged out of 2nd by Pawling (76 points) and just 5 points behind Holland Patent, keeping the team from defending its State title.

In 2012, the team again returned to the State Championships that were held at Elma Meadows Golf Course in Section six. At that meet the team was able to pull off a second place finish, getting outdistanced by Pawling by 14 points but beating third place Hannibal, (Section 3), by 51 points.

This team represented Fonda-Fultonville at the highest level of competition for four consecutive years including a State Championship and 2 top 3 finishes. A feat worthy of Hall of Fame Recognition.
