SUMMIT, NJ - Girls Varsity Lacrosse defender Anna Baumeister and Boys Varsity Lacrosse middie Matt Fischetti have been named Summit High School Athletes of the Week, presented by The Alternative Press of Summit, for the week ending May 18.
Each week throughout the school year, one girl and boy athlete will be honored for distinguishing herself / himself in the arena of competition, in the classroom, and for demonstrating exemplary, Hilltopper-caliber sportsmanship and leadership qualities.
A senior Captain, and three-year starter, Baumeister is an academic All-American who will continue her playing career at Cornell. Last week, she anchored a defense that shut out Westfield in the second half, and led the Hilltoppers to their sixth consecutive Union County title. She was also honored as the school's female scholar-athlete for Union County.
"Anna is the leader of a defense that gives up, on average, four goals a game, and is an important part of our success so far this season. More importantly, she is a wonderful young woman who epitomizes the concept of the scholar-athlete," said Head Coach Mike Walsh.
