Boys Athlete of the Week // Nick Wynne, Glenelg, lacrosse

May 24, 2011

The junior left wing had never had a two-game scoring spree like he had last week. Wynne, who has 63 goals and 107 points this season, had 11 goals and seven assists in the Class 2A-1A regional final and state semifinal games to help his team to 7-6 and 15-4 victories over Winters Mill and Queen Anne's, respectively, and into Tuesday's state final against Patterson Mill. Wynne added three assists in that game, a 5-4 Glenelg win, including one on the eventual game-winner by his brother Mikey. Nick Wynne, who had seven goals and six assists in the Queen Anne's game, said he was inspired because Queen Anne's beat the Gladiators in last year's title game. "I was really focused and got my revenge – finally," Wynne said. Glenelg coach Josh Hatmaker said "that was Nick taking ownership of the game. The word I'd use to describe him is tenacious. He attacks the game from every aspect." Wynne, 17, has a 3.3 GPA and is already considering where to take his game after high school. Towson and Denver are on his short list.

Others considered: Josh Sherer, Franklin, baseball; Eric Sweeney, Mount St. Joseph, rugby; Ryan Tucker, Gilman, lacrosse
