Every week this season, Shore Conference lacrosse fans will have their chance to vote for the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey/Shore Sports Network Boys Lacrosse Player of the Week on our website.

The Week 5 winner as selected by the readers is Red Bank Catholic sophomore attackman Jack Zenkert, who scored 15 goals and added four assists in just three games, including a career-high 11 points in one game.

Zenkert began his week with two goals and two assists in a game against Colts Neck before exploding for nine goals and two assists to lead the Caseys to a victory over New Egypt. He concluded his outstanding three-game stretch with four goals against rival Red Bank.

Zenkert has kept his hot streak going this week to help RBC pick up a pair of wins. He scored four goals and dished out two assists in a win over St. Rose and then scored five goals with one assist while also collecting a career-high seven ground balls in a win over Jackson Liberty.

After posting 13 goals and two assists as a freshman, Zenkert has enjoyed a breakout season with 52 goals - which is tied for 11th in New Jersey - and 16 assists for 68 points.

Zenkert won the readers' poll with 39.59 percent of the votes to emerge over Shore's Jake Turner.
