Athletes of the Week

April 02, 2003


Adam Grap

Mount Hebron, baseball

Tendinitis in his throwing shoulder has kept Grap from doing any catching this season, but it certainly hasn't affected his bat. The senior designated hitter, who is batting third for Mount Hebron, had a huge week, helping the defending Howard County champion get off to a 3-0 start.

In three games, Grap was 5-for-10 with three home runs, 13 RBIs, four runs and a double.

He got it all started Tuesday with two homers and seven RBIs to lead the Vikings to an 11-7 victory over Long Reach.

Then, after hitting a double and driving in three runs in Hebron's 11-1 romp past South River, Grap slammed a two-run homer and a game-winning single as the Vikings beat Atholton, 4-3, on Friday.

A three-year varsity member who played last summer for the Maryland Orioles, he has signed with Stetson University in Florida.


Lindsay Ettinger

Chesapeake-AA, softball

The All-Metro right-hander did not allow an earned run in her first two outings, giving the No. 1 Cougars a boost on the way to a 3-0 start.

Ettinger pitched 14 innings, allowing six hits and one walk while striking out 13 batters in 1-0 wins over No. 4 Glen Burnie and No. 11 Northeast. Against Glen Burnie, the senior pitched out of a couple of jams, including striking out three straight batters in the sixth inning with a runner on second.

Last season, Ettinger went 16-2 with a 0.65 ERA, helping the Cougars sweep their Anne Arundel County competition. Foes batted .143 against her as she struck out 127 and walked 10 in 128 2/3 innings. Last summer, she helped the Maryland Outlaws 18-and-under team go 80-12. She plans to play in college.
