Here are this week’s top athletes:

 

Baseball – Julius Saporito, Sr., OF, Freehold Township

The Quinnipiac recruit hit three home runs in three games last week, one in each game, including the game-winning solo shot in the 15th inning that gave Freehold Township a 5-4 win on Saturday over previously undefeated Wall, which was ranked in the top 15 in the state. He had three hits in the win over Wall and also had a solo home run in a win over Marlboro and a two-run homer in an 11-9 loss to Middletown South.

 

Softball – Kelsey Oh, Fr., P, Mount St. Dominic

The freshman standout outdueled High Point senior ace Ally Frei, throwing a two-hit shutout, striking out 12 and walking none to give Mount St. Dominic a 4-0 win over High Point in a match-up of top 10 teams in the state at the Mount St. Dominic Invitational.

 

Boys volleyball – Jason Gillies, Sr., Setter, Howell

The Rebels’ senior setter helped them to one of their biggest wins in program history, as he had 29 assists in a 25-23, 12-25, 25-17 upset of rival Christian Brothers Academy, one of the top 10 teams in the state. Gillies has already set the school record with 549 career assists, including 151 this season through eight matches.

 

Girls track – Keturah Orji, Sr., Mount Olive

The University of Georgia recruit, one of the top horizontal jumpers in the nation, helped her team set the Morris County record in the team long jump with a combined 50 feet, 10 inches, including a jump of 19-4 by Orji. She also registered a 41-0 jump in the triple jump to help Mount Olive set a meet record with a combined 104-5 ½ at the Morris Hills Relays at Gifford Field in Rockaway. Her distance in the triple jump is the best in the state this season and the fifth-longest nationally.

 

Boys lacrosse – David Smith, Jr., Midfielder, Shawnee

Smith scored twice and went 4-for-5 on face-offs in the third quarter to key the decisive surge in a 7-4 win over previously undefeated Shawnee, one of the top teams in South Jersey. Smith, a University of Virginia recruit, helped the Renegades beat St. Augustine for the first time in program history.
