SUMMIT, NJ - Girls lacrosse's Stella Spotts and baseball's Will Schaffer have been honored as Summit High School Athletes of the Week, presented by TAPinto Summit, for the week ending April 16.
Each week throughout the school athletic year, an athlete or athletes will be honored for distinguishing themselves in the arena of competition, in the classroom, and for demonstrating exemplary, Hilltopper-caliber sportsmanship and leadership qualities.
Spotts has excelled in her studies and as a member of the defending TOC champs, and is headed to continue her education and lacrosse career at Columbia University in the fall. "Stella is a captain for us and led our efforts defensively this week as we went 3-0 and held teams to under six goals per game," said Head Coach Mike Walsh.
Schaffer had a big week on the diamond over spring break, earning a win on the mound over New Providence -- which included him fanning nine Pioneers -- and offensively going 8 for 14 with 6 RBIs and five runs scored over a three-game span. His eight hits included a pair of two baggers and a triple.
"Will often sets the tempo for us throughout our games," said Head Coach Kevin Zaleski. "He is a three-year varsity player and shows great passion for the game."
