WMFD Radio Sports is proud to announce our selections as WFMD / Premier Dental Arts / Buffalo Wild Wings High School Athletes of the Month for April!
Alyssa Wright of the Oakdale High School Girls Lacrosse team and Andrew Shanley of the St. John’s Catholic Prep Boys Lacrosse team.
At the end of April, Alyssa was the leading scorer in Frederick County with an amazing 82 points which included 56 goals and 26 assists. In addition, her Oakdale team was 12-1 on the year and ranked #1 by the Frederick News Post through the month of April.
Andrew Shanley is also a terrific scorer and by the end of April had an astounding 94 points on 54 goals and 40 assists.
Can you imagine being an opposing coach trying to devise a defense to stop these two scoring machines?
WFMD, Premier Dental Arts and Buffalo Wild Wings High School Athletes of the Month for March: Lindsey Windsor of Walkersville Softball and Trey Lipscomb of Urbana Baseball.
Interesting insights into high school varsity sports from our two Athletes of the Month. (see attached photo) What kind of coach do they prefer during games? They both said an active coach who talks to them about their mistakes is best. Lindsey Windsor said if she gives up a big hit, she wants someone to talk to her about what happened. Both Windsor and male athlete Trey Lipscomb said they had families who attended their games and helped guide them through the maze of teams they have been on. Both said they started playing softball and baseball at the T-ball level when they were about five years old. They both obviously love their sports. Trey is a Pitcher/Shortstop who describes himself as a player who is always moving and talking to teammates. Lindsey is a Pitcher/Centerfielder who loves to be on the mound and has an 8-1 won-lost record so far this season. Trey says he prefers playing shortstop to pitching. Trey is hitting .526 and Lindsey is batting .568. They both play on winning teams as Urbana is 9-3 and in First Place in the Spires Division of the CMC and Walkersville is 9-4 and in Second Place in the Gambrill Division of the CMC. Trey is a Senior heading for the University of Tennessee to play baseball next season. Lindsey is a Junior but has spoken with the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and UNC-Wilmington. We know you will be impressed with these two young athletes when you listen to the entire interview with them.
