Player of the Week

Brian Olesen, Sr., 1B, Ocean

The Spartans pulled out two walk-off wins last week in the Central Jersey Group III tournament and the senior slugger drove in five of the eight runs Ocean scored in the two wins. He delivered the walk-off RBI single in a 3-2, come-from-behind win over Neptune on May 23 and went 2-for-3 with four RBI in a 5-4, extra-inning win over Allentown on Thursday.

Pitcher of the Week

Justin Fall, Jr., Toms River South

The junior continues to pitch better with each start and his six-hit shutout against a Freehold Boro club that knocked off Toms River North four days earlier pushed his Indians team into the Shore Conference Tournament semifinals. He struck out three and did not walk a batter in the effort.
