McDonogh's Meurer wins Kelly Award

McDonogh senior defenseman Joe Meurer was the recipient of the C. Markland Kelly Award, which recognizes the top boys lacrosse player in the state.

Meurer, who is set to play at Ohio State next year, was a dominating presence on defense for the Eagles, who advanced to the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinals. He finished the season with 104 ground balls and also contributed five goals and two assists.

Meurer also has been named to the All-Tewaaraton Team and is an Under Armour and U.S. Lacrosse All-American.

"He's just worked extremely hard in the weight room and with his stick skills to become a dynamic lacrosse player. He always impacts the game and is highly respected not only in our league, but the entire country," McDonogh coach Andy Hilgartner said.

Meurer was named the Kelly Award winner at the annual dinner Sunday night in Annapolis.
