Baseball is back! The Dulaney High School varsity baseball team had a shortened but quite successful season, finishing undefeated at 10-0 and winning the Class 4A North Regional championship.
They followed up by making quite a run in the state tournament including a thrilling walk-off win before falling just short in the semifinals. Several Dulaney High School baseball players, Wilson Farlow, Jackson Felt and Todd Mozoki, received post-season accolades when they were named area All-Stars.
The Maryland State Association of Baseball Coaches sponsors a series of senior all-star games to bring together the best players from across the state. First up was the MSABC Classic, which featured the trio of Dulaney 2021 graduates as a part of the team representing the North region. There are four regional teams made up of seniors from all the public, private and parochial schools in the state.
Wilson, a pitcher, along with infielders Jackson and Todd helped defeat the West region team by a score of 7-3 and reunited the athletes with their former Dulaney naseball coach, Ryan Wolfsheimer.
Wilson and Todd were then named to the North State team, comprised of the top 15 players from northern Maryland, and played in the 39th Annual Brooks Robinson Senior All-Star Game, held at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on June 27.
In front of family and friends, the teams representing the North and the South battled to an 8-8 tie. Since the first game was played in 1982, more than 20 players from Dulaney have been selected to play in this prestigious event.
Todd will continue his baseball career next year at James Madison University, while Wilson will be attend the University of Maryland, and Jackson will attend Loyola University. Other senior all-stars from our area included Casey Bishop from Gilman School, Cody Kurek from John Carroll School and St Paul’s School’s Jack Van Valkenburgh. Congratulations to all the players!
Another recent Dulaney graduate, Steven H. Zhang of Cockeysville, was recently named a National Merit Scholar and will attend the University of Maryland in the fall.
Steven is an accomplished musician, a member of Dulaney’s badminton team and has won awards for website design in competitions sponsored by the Future Business Leaders of America.

He is one of about 7,500 National Merit Scholars nationwide from an original pool of over 1.5 million students. He was recognized with the award on the basis of his academic achievements, extracurricular activities, awards and leadership positions. Best of luck, Steven, with all your future endeavors.
