It’s the end of the school year and we are ready to recognize our Student-Athlete of the Month for the month of MAY. We need your help. Below you will find information on several of our SPRING Athletes at Glen Burnie High School. Please read through them and decide which athlete you feel deserves to win the “MAY Student-Athlete of the Month” award at GBHS. The winning athlete will receive an embroidered Under Armour Backpack and recognition on our upcoming “Athlete of the Month” board going up in the gym. Here are your MAY candidates:
Sean Scott – Boys’ Outdoor Track
Sean Scott was the only male 9th grader to compete at the county championship and regional championship meets for GB. He is currently 2nd male athlete in the 300m hurdles, 2nd in the 400m, and 3rd in the 200m. Only seniors have run faster times this year. He is one of only 2 athletes to earn individual points at the region meet! He is ranked 11th out of 334 freshmen in the entire state of Maryland for the 400m and 4th out of 98 in the 300m hurdles. That’s the top 5% for both events! Sean was also the only freshmen (paired with 3 seniors) on the 4×400 team that placed 7th at the regional meet.
It has been awesome watching Sean improve on the track and at school! There has been drastic positive changes in both his grades and behavior. “He pushes himself regularly to compete with the older athletes, and he is often able to give them a workout, too! He has come a long way since hurdling the tables in the cafeteria at lunch!” joked Coach Kelso.
Eniola Adeleke – Girls’ Outdoor Track
Eniola Adeleke was the only female 9th grader to compete at the county championship and regional championship meets for GB. She is currently GB’s #2 runner in both the 200m and 400m dash, and 3rd in the 100m. Her personal best time of 13.64 in the 100m dash is the 3rd fastest time by a 9th grade girl in GB history (unofficially). Eniola was also the only freshmen to compete on the 4×100 and 4×200 relays. The 4×200 set a new school record at the county championship meet this month, and it finished 7th at the regional meet.
Eniola pushes! This season (she was on the winter track team too), she has not held herself back. “She is often at the front of the pack at practice. Her hard work, initiative, and positive attitude aided in our decision to put her on 3 varsity relay teams this season (4×100, 4×200, and 4×400). I am looking forward to seeing what she can do over the next 3 years!” exclaimed Coach Kelso
Noah Hileman- Unified Bocce
This was Noah’s second year on our Unified Bocce team and he has really started to shine! He is a young man with Autism who was cautious and a bit withdrawn his first year. This year, Noah stepped up and became a true partner. He started greeting all the team members each day and started taking it on himself to set-up and break down equipment. “He went out of his comfort zone and started helping other players. Noah pushed wheelchairs, moved ramps, and offered friendship to all his teammates. He was also named All-County athlete for Unified Bocce!” stated Coach Voll excitedly!
Jordan Fangman – Softball
Jordan is the starting left fielder for the softball team. She also played basketball in her high school career and was a swimmer this year. Jordan is one of our top performers this year. She is constantly moving at practice and encouraging others to be the best that they can be. “Jordan is an amazingly hard-worker this season and I can’t wait for her to come out next year.” stated Coach Sauble.
