The Stoneham Independent wrote in part “Stoneham won the Class C Track Championship, first in history over Rindge Tech. It took tremendous efforts by Dan Mahoney. Mahoney was 2nd in high jump and 2nd in hurdles. He was Stoneham’s top point scorer.”

At the Stoneham Winter Letter Assembly Dan was awarded “Most Valuable Athlete” for his track performance. During the spring track season, Dan was state champion in the long jump, 2nd in hurdles and ran on the relay team that finished 3rd which allowed Stoneham to clinch their second State Championship in consecutive seasons. He earned six varsity letters in track and was named Most Valuable track competing in the high hurdles, long jump, high jump, triple jump, and in the 100 and 200. He also set three Stoneham High School records in the triple jump, long jump, and high jump. He also earned a varsity letter in soccer.

After Stoneham High, Dan attended the prestigious Moses and Brown School as a member of the twelve man team that was undefeated in the winter and spring track seasons. He was a New England Champion in five events: the long jump, high jump, triple jump, hurdles, and relays.

A scholarship athlete at Boston College from 1972 to 1975, Dan set school records in the long jump and triple jump. He is listed among Boston College’s All Time Top Ten Track performers in the categories for Long Jump, Triple Jump and Hurdles.

Dan as a Vietnam era Air Force member competed against the other armed services track teams and in other top amateur track events throughout the country representing the Air Force before a knee injury ended his track and military career.
