Vote for the NJ1015 High School Athlete of the Week [11/18]

NJ101.5 is doing something very special this year to honor those special athletes who excel in any given week in their respective sport. And YOU help determine the weekly winner! It’s time to cast your vote for this week’s NJ101.5 High School Athlete of the Week.

Here’s how it the voting works: Each week, we have a new group of NJ student-athletes who have shined for their respective teams. You can cast your vote for your favorite athlete. Voting ends on Friday at NOON. Find out the winner when they are announced on at 2pm. Each weekly winner will get a plaque and at the end of the school year we’ll honor all our winners with a very special awards banquet.

Football – Frank Darby, So., WR, Lincoln

Darby had six catches for 218 yards and two touchdowns as Lincoln dethroned three-time defending sectional champion Madison, 28-26, in the opening round of the North Jersey II, Group II playoffs. Lincoln also became the first Jersey City public school to win a home game in the 40-year history of the NJSIAA playoffs.

Football – Semei Mitchell, Sr., RB, Lawrence

Mitchell had 161 yards rushing on 26 carries and a touchdown and also caught a 24-yard touchdown pass to help Lawrence win its first state playoff game in program history with a 21-14 victory over Allentown.

Boys soccer – Marc Langendorff, Sr., Goalie, Millburn

Langendorff had seven saves, several of the spectacular variety, to help lead Millburn to a 2-1 upset of top-seeded Watchung Hills, a top-five team in the state, to win its second straight North Jersey II, Group IV title. Millburn also beat Scotch Plains, a top 10 team in the state, in the semifinals and knocked off a Top 20 team, Elizabeth, in the quarterfinals.

Field hockey – Sarita Charap, Sr., Goalie, Ocean City

Charap had 10 saves, including two great ones inside the final two minutes of regulation, to register a shutout in a 1-0 double-overtime upset victory over Warren Hills that gave Ocean City the NJSIAA Group III championship. It’s the second straight Group III title for Ocean City, which started the season 5-3 but rallied for a great playoff run.

Girls gymnastics – Kendall Valentin, Sr., Holmdel

Valentin won the all-around title as the best gymnast in the state at the NJSIAA Individual Championships with a score of 38.275. It marked the fourth top-10 finish in the state meet in her brilliant career and her first overall title, as she took fifth in the vault (9.55), second in the bars (9.675), eighth in the beam (9.45) and third in the floor (9.6) to take home the overall crown.
