ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

May 21, 2008

BOYS

Patrick Blair

Calvert Hall, baseball

Blair has been the catalyst of the three-time defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion and top-ranked Cardinals (25-7). In two playoff wins last week that put the Cardinals in today's A Conference championship at Ripken Stadium, Blair led the way. In an 11-1 rout of St. Paul's on Wednesday, Blair, last year's first-team All-Metro shortstop as a sophomore, had a single, double and triple and scored two runs. On Friday in a 7-2 victory over Archbishop Spalding, he singled in a run and later stole home to put the Cardinals (25-7) up for good at 2-1. He leads the team in average (.462), runs (34), RBIs (34), triples (five), homers (seven) and stolen bases (21), and has a .900 fielding percentage.

Others considered -- Eric Aumann, South River, baseball; Stephen Blucher, Marriotts Ridge, baseball; Harrison Chaires, Centennial, lacrosse; George Chambers, Archbishop Curley, track and field; Jay Mann, Dulaney, lacrosse.
