ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

May 14, 2008

BOYS

Tyler Fiorito

McDonogh, lacrosse

Fiorito is having another All-Metro season as the Eagles' goalie. He is matching last year's junior season, when he averaged 12 saves. Considered by most lacrosse observers as the area's top goalie, Fiorito, who has exceptional instincts and reflexes, turned back 25 shots in a pair of Eagles victories last week in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference. In a 6-4 win over then-No. 4 St. Mary's on May 6, Fiorito stopped 13 shots. On Friday, Fiorito posted 12 saves in a 9-6 triumph over Mount St. Joseph.

Others considered -- John Hodges, Northeast, baseball; Adam Johnston, St. Paul's, lacrosse; Jason Patten, Archbishop Spalding, baseball; Andrew Scalley, Archbishop Spalding, lacrosse; Sean Thompson, Archbishop Curley, baseball.

Girls

Elaine Nescio

Archbishop Spalding, softball

The junior, in her first season as the Cavaliers' ace, closed out a fine season with near-flawless play last week that led Spalding to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. In Sunday's 6-0 championship win over Institute of Notre Dame, she was in complete control, striking out 11 in a one-hitter. She also executed a squeeze bunt to drive in the game's last run. In Thursday's 5-0 semifinal win over defending conference champ Seton Keough, Nescio retired the first 14 batters and finished with a one-hitter.

Others considered -- Ally Carey, John Carroll, lacrosse; Jenna Cimino, Hereford, track and field; Anna Demaree, River Hill, track and field; Kourtney Salvarola, Broadneck, softball.
