**Player of the Week selections are made by Shore Sports Network staff writer Matt Manley based on stats and information reported to Shore Sports Network during the week.

Player of the Week

Morgan Maguire, Jr., Rumson-Fair Haven

Last week was a big one for a number of Class A Central players and Maguire edges out Red Bank Catholic’s Al Molina (10-for-12 with two home runs and seven RBI) with a couple big games of his own. The junior Old Dominion recruit went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run at the plate while striking out 10 in seven innings to carry Rumson to a 3-2 win over Holmdel on Wednesday. He then went 3-for-3 with another home run and triple in an 8-2 win over Manasquan, while also driving in four runs.

Pitcher of the Week

Jeff Wischerath, Sr., Holmdel

One start after picking up his first varsity win on the mound, Holmdel’s senior hurler pitched the Shore Conference’s first no-hitter of the season in a 4-0 win over Manasquan on Thursday. Manasquan had just scored 10 runs in knocking off St. John Vianney on Wednesday, but had no answer for Wischerath, who struck out four and walked only one.


Class A North

Player of the Week

Kenny Carrier, Sr., Freehold Twp.

The Patriots beat the top two teams in the Class A North standings – Colts Neck and CBA – to end the week and Carrier was right in the middle of both victories. He went 3-for-3 with a double, two runs and an RBI in the win over Colts Neck and went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a stolen base while also earning the win on the mound against CBA.

Runners Up: Ryan Ramiz, CBA; Will Morgan, CBA; Kyle Brey, Middletown South

Pitcher of the Week

Luca Dalatri, So., CBA

If Dalatri keeps throwing like he did in each of his first two starts, he will be a regular in this spot. After winning the Shore Conference Pitcher of the Week by throwing a one-hitter in his first start, Dalatri followed it up with a three-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts against Howell. In two starts and 14 innings, Dalatri has not allowed a run while surrendering only four hits and two walks and striking out 21.

Runners Up: Gianni Magliaro, Colts Neck; Nick Serra, Manalapan; Mike Zibrin, Middletown North


Class A Central

Player of the Week

Morgan Maguire (See Above)

Runners Up: Al Molina, Red Bank Catholic; Jon Bonczyk, Monmouth; Matt Vincenti, Monmouth

Pitcher of the Week

Jeff Wischerath, Sr., Holmdel (See Above)

Runners Up: Shane McCarthy, Rumson; Corey Shelvin, Monmouth; Andrew Schulz, Shore


Class A South

Player of the Week

Trevor Wagner, So., Toms River South

With the Indians looking to replace experience on the mound and around the field, Wagner has filled in on both counts. This week, he delivered a go-ahead, bases-clearing hit to break a 4-4 tie in a win over Brick and then pitched three one-hit innings in a win over Toms River North on Friday night.

Runners Up: Matt Guarino, Jackson Memorial; Russell Messler, Toms River South; Nick Liantonio, Southern

Pitcher of the Week

Tyler Goodman, Sr., Brick Memorial

Normally, pitchers of the week pitch are on the winning team, but Goodman was nearly flawless in a losing effort. The senior pitched a one-hitter Wednesday against Lacey, but the Lions turned a walk into a run for the game’s lone run. Outside of that game, Lacey has scored 39 runs in five games (7.8 per game).

Runners Up: C.J. Hirschy, Toms River East; Nick Scalone, Southern; Anthony DeBlasio, Toms River East


Class B North

Player of the Week

Nick Martinez, Jr., Wall

The Wall center fielder was a steady force out of the leadoff spot during the Crimson Knights’ three-win week. He went 6-for-11 in the three wins with four doubles, four runs scored and two RBI, including two long doubles in a win over St. Rose on Saturday.

Runners Up: Dan Wondrack, Wall; Adam Elliot, Matawan; Ryan Yee, Freehold

Pitcher of the Week

Ryan Orender, Jr., Wall

With projected No. 2 starter Steve Coltrain recovering from some elbow discomfort, the Crimson Knights needed their other pitchers to emerge, and Orender has answered the bell. Saturday against Wall, he delivered a six-inning, two-hit shutout and also went 2-for-2 at the plate.

Runners-Up: Nick Smith, Matawan; Tyler Swiggart, Wall; Ryan Lillie, Ocean


Class B Central

Player of the Week

Will King, Sr., St. Rose

The Purple Roses' backstop had a week’s worth of production in only a couple of innings in 12-1 a win over Point Beach on Friday. King knocked in two runs with a double in the fifth inning and in the next frame, he belted a grand slam to give him six RBI in two innings. King finished the game 2-for-3 with six RBI.

Runners Up: Ben Thompson, Henry Hudson; Johnny Kussmaul, St. Rose; Cole Hardy, Mater Dei Prep; Antonio Garcia, Point Beach; Mike Keelen, Keansburg

Pitcher of the Week

Parker Haggerty, Sr., St. Rose

One of two repeat pitcher of the week winners, Haggerty delivered another stellar start, this time against rival Point Beach. Haggerty did not allow an earned run in a six-inning complete game while holding Point Beach to two hits and a walk while striking out five.

Runners Up: Josh Heck, Keansburg; Geno Antongnoli, Point Beach; Anthony Fernandez, Keyport


Class B South

Player of the Week

Bryan Mulligan, Sr., Monsignor Donovan

The Griffins' previously-dormant offense came to life during a 2-1 week and Mulligan was a big reason why. In two wins over Pinelands and Central, the senior went 3-for-3 in both games and drove in the winning run against Central while also adding a double in an upset of the Golden Eagles.

Runners Up: Jared Kacso, Barnegat; Frank Graziano, Point Boro; Mitch Merrill, Pinelands; Frank Rose, Central; James Sofield, Jackson Liberty

Pitcher of the Week

Jason Groome, So., Barnegat

While CBA’s Luca Dalatri has won the headlines among Shore Conference pitchers to open the year, Barnegat’s sophomore has been similarly dominant. He pitched the Bengals to a win over defending Class B South champion Jackson Liberty by limiting the Lions to two runs on four hits over seven innings while striking out 13. The left-hander has allowed just those two runs on six hits and five walks over 14 innings this year while striking out 24.

Runners Up: Devin Tomei, Manchester; Mike Dunham, Point Boro; Cory Burke, Pinelands; Dante Pagano, Monsignor Donovan; Dan Naif, Jackson Liberty
