MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State athletics department has selected its weekly award winners, naming junior Amelia Baratier (Liverpool, N.Y.) and sophomore Daniel Sparkowski (East Meadow, N.Y.) the Mustang Athletes of the Week for the week ending October 7th.

Baratier followed with another 10 kills against St. Elizabeth in the 3-0 match sweep, adding another eight digs and hitting .334 from the outside.
Currently sitting second on the team in kills, Baratier is also ranked seventh in the conference in kills per set at 2.64 and is ninth in total kills with 161 to date on the season.
The graduate of Liverpool High is majoring in applied psychology at SUNY Morrisville. She is the daughter of Renee Baratier of Liverpool.
