Baltimore Sun’s high school Athletes of the Week (Jan. 10-16): Reservoir’s Andrew Dolezel and Roland Park’s Erin Miller

Each week, The Baltimore Sun will recognize one high school boy and girl for their athletic achievements.

Boy Athlete of the Week: Andrew Dolezel, Reservoir, wrestling

The standout freshman claimed the 113-pound championship at Saturday’s 23rd Grapple at the Brook tournament at Springbrook High in Montgomery County. Dolezel won three bouts to claim the title — an 8-7 decision in the quarterfinals and a fall in the semifinals before closing with an 8-6 overtime decision over Edwin Reilly (Wilson, D.C.) in the final.


Dolezel is 14-1 in his first varsity season with five pins for the 9-3 Gators.

Girl Athlete of the Week: Erin Miller, Roland Park, basketball

The freshman forward came up big with two sensational performances in as many days to lead the Reds (6-2) to two wins. In Friday’s 59-48 win at St. John’s Catholic Prep, she recorded a double-double with 20 points and 21 rebounds. On Saturday, she produced the game-winning shots in the final seconds of a 50-47 win against Pikesville, finishing with nine points and 14 rebounds.


For the season, Miller is averaging 8.5 points and 10 rebounds per game.
