The Ed Romance Chapter also honors special achievement and this year is no exception. Maura Fiamoncini has actually earned the recognition in two different sports. Maura became only the 12th girl in MCA history to surpass 1000 points in her career, and she accomplished the feat as a junior. She would finish her career with 1,128 points, 532 in her sophomore year with only Maria Fantanarosa scoring more points in a season. Her teams won District IV Championships in 2014 and 2016 and earned a third place finish in 2015. She was a track captain and Pennsylvania Heartland Conference All Star and was the News Item Player of the Year. Her teams were 73-13 during her tenure.
Fiamonicini again made MCA history when she became the first female athlete ever to win a state championship, throwing the Javelin 155’1” and again breaking her old school record. Maura also placed second in the PIAA meet in 2015 and 10th as a freshman in 2014. She surprised everyone by taking a 5th place at the Penn Relays as a sophomore and bested every in 2016 to take the Penn Relays Championship with a throw of 150’11”. She also won District IV Championships in 2015 and 2016, establishing a new meet record with a 147’7” toss. She earned Daily Item and News Item Player of the Year honors and Press Enterprise MVP.
Maura will go down as one of the premier female athletes to ever wear the red and white and one can only wonder what she would have been able to accomplish had she been able to complete as a senior. She is the daughter of Jim and Justine Fiamoncini of Mount Carmel.
