The other winners were Carly Severini, of North Hunterdon High School; Allyson Hernandez, of Hunterdon Central Regional High School; Joseph DiNizio, of Middlesex High School; Justin Friedman, of The Pingry School; Arielle Couso, of Hillsborough High School; and Kelly Amen, of Hillsborough High School.

The application for the scholarship includes athletes proving they are of outstanding character and integrity, and in leadership positions on their baseball or softball teams as well as in their communities.

“These scholarships recognize athletes who have succeeded in far more than baseball and softball,” Zoned owner Duke Baxter said in a release. “They recognize each of these athletes as well-rounded individuals, whose accomplishments reach well beyond the diamonds they play on. They are true champions in their schools, home and communities. These scholarships provide a way for us at Zoned to recognize and give back to these young role models, as well as for those who will follow in their footsteps in years to come.”
