Boys Athlete of the Week // Michael Razumovsky, Pikesville, tennis

Playing his first season at No. 1 singles, the junior shined with a 17-0 mark that was capped on Saturday when he defeated Blair's Dukyoung Park to capture the state title at College Park.  Razumovsky, who played doubles his first two years, came away with a hard-fought 6-5, 7-6 (7-5) win over Park to give Pikesville its first state champion.  After missing an easy overhead that would have sealed the match in the tie breaker, Razumovsky regrouped to win the next point on a long rally.  First-year coach Brian Lange said his mental game is one of his strengths.  In completing the undefeated season, Razumovsky also captured the Baltimore County and District VI titles.  In addition to tennis, Razumovsky, who maintains a 3.36 grade-point average, also is an accomplished piano player.
