Athletes Of The Week


April 01, 2009

Ronnie Zeberlein C. Milton Wright, baseball

The senior second baseman went 6-for-9 with a home run, two doubles and four RBIs this week in helping lead his Mustangs to three wins, one a 4-1 victory over then-No. 1 Calvert Hall. He drove in three of his team's four runs against the Cardinals and knocked in the winning run in the last inning of the Mustangs' 5-4 victory over North Harford. His coach, Tony Blackburn, says Zeberlein is "a tireless worker. He would take ground balls all day if we let him." Zeberlein also has a 3.7 grade-point average.
