Boys Athlete of the Week: Zack Wheeler, Fallston, lacrosse

The Baltimore Sun

A switch from midfield to forward this season has suited Wheeler well. The senior scored five goals and handed out an assist, in a 12 minute span covering the first and second quarters of a game against Patterson Mill on Wednesday. Fallston won, 14-10, to stay undefeated in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference at 4-0. Wheeler leads the team in points with 21 goals and 15 assists. He has a 3.8 GPA and will attend Virginia Tech to study engineering. His coach, Matt Parks, says Wheeler is "very savvy, good in tight spaces and has a great stick. He knows where to be and how to get there."

Others considered: Brandon Casas, Gilman, baseball; Austin Frederick, McDonogh, lacrosse; Josh Hader, Old Mill, baseball; Nate Lewnes, St. Mary's, lacrosse; Devin McNamara, Loyola, lacrosse; Neil Westdorp, Eastern Tech, baseball.
