Athletes Of The Week

Athletes of the Week

April 20, 2005

BOYS

Ed Bach

Atholton, baseball

The senior left-hander pitched a no-hitter on Wednesday against then-10th-ranked, defending Class 3A state champ Centennial, striking out 16 and walking only two.

Bach, who went 6-3 last season, struck out 13 of the first 17 Centennial batters, including six in a row. Of his 103 pitches, 66 were strikes. Bach was so overpowering that, in the sixth inning, three Centennial batters attempted to bunt.

Bach was still strong in the seventh, when he faced the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 batters, including Howard County Player of the Year Dan Shillingburg. With his win over Centennial, Howard County's best-hitting team, Bach improved to 4-0 with 49 strikeouts and two earned runs in 27 innings.

GIRLS

Megan Bosica

Mount Hebron, lacrosse

The junior midfielder led the No. 1 Vikings to four wins last week, including a six-goal effort in Saturday's 14-9 victory over Roland Park in the Maryland High School Lacrosse Showdown at Johns Hopkins' Homewood Field.

An All-Metro pick last season, Bosica has 23 goals and 12 assists through the first six games, which include five lopsided wins where she played little more than a half. The go-to girl for the Vikings, who won their 66th straight game against Roland Park, Bosica has 120 career goals and 46 assists.

A year ago, Bosica led the Vikings to their eighth straight state title with 70 goals and 20 assists. She went on to win the Heather Leigh Albert Trophy as the top schoolgirl player at the US Lacrosse Women's Division National Tournament last summer.
