MCA Senior Evan Salamone has distinguished himself as an athlete for the last four years as one of the finest young golfers to ever play in our area. In 2017, he paced the Red Raider golf team from Our Lady of Lourdes Regional to the District IV team championship. Evan plays with OLOL through their co-operative agreement with Mount Carmel Area High School along with teammates, Selina Albert, Ryan Ciocco, Walter Kalinoski, Brock Evert, Thomas Schultz, Garrett Timco, and Zack Thomas. Evan led the team, coached by Ryan Felty, to the Schuylkill League Team Championship in 2017. The team would go 42-2 over four years with both losses coming at the hands of Blue Mountain. OLOL was the Schuylkill League runner-up on two other occasions.

Individually, Salamone is a 4-time winner of the Schuylkill League Scoring Title, a two-time District IV Scoring Titleist, and he also posted a 73.2 career scoring average. He was named the News-Item Golfer of the Year for all 4 years after going undefeated for all four years of his career. He has registered a low score of 67 (-6) and averaged 71 at his home course at Indian Hills. In 2017, Salamone lost a sudden death playoff for the District IV Championship, but qualified for PIAA Eastern Regional Championships. He is a Harry Hammond Invitational Top Ten finisher and a 4-time Philly Jr. PGA Tour Medalist. He also participated in tournaments at the Chapel Hill Golf Club, Skippack GC, Lebanon Country Club and the State College Series.

Salamone is also a four-year contributor to MCA Basketball and MCA baseball. He has worked his way up to the sixth man position on the court and has made key buckets in a number of close games for the Red Tornadoes and Coach John Lazicki. Evan’s attitude is greatly responsible for his earning this award as he feels that “whatever your role is in anything, be the best you can be. From being a 4 year captain to a reserve outfielder, do the best you can in your role and have fun.” Evan truly represents his school and community in the best light possible.

Evan plans to attend either Coastal Carolina, Penn State or California of PA to continue playing golf and pursue a degree in Professional Golf Management. He is the son of Roxanne Yurkiewicz and Ernie Salamone.
