It’s the end of the FALL SEASON and we are ready to recognize our Student-Athlete of the Month for the month of October. We need your help. Below you will find information on several of our Fall Athletes at Glen Burnie High School. Please read through them and decide which athlete you feel deserves to win the “October 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:
Tori Cain – Volleyball
Sarah Morgan – Lady Gopher Soccer
Sarah is in all AP classes carry’s a great GPA. She is a 2-year captain and she is a true leader on and off the field. Sarah was our leading scorer this year with 13 goals and 6 assists she was voted 1st team Coaches All-County this year after being voted to the Second team last year. She belongs to various clubs in the school and Sarah attends many of the school functions: swim meets, wrestling matches softball, football, and baseball games. She has volunteered for all of our community service events that the soccer team completed this season and even came to some for the softball team even though she was not on the team. She shows some of the best school spirit I have seen and she is a true asset to her team. She is very deserving of this award
SeAnna Vanzego- Cheerleading
Elisha Seitz – Cross Country
This season finishes out Elisha’s 3rd varsity season with the cross-country team. His hard work and consistency paid off as he was GB’s number 1 runner for a majority of the season. Elisha stepped up this year as a leader for the team. He encouraged others to step up at meets and practices and he welcomed this competition. He is always looking for ways to better himself, and this year we could see this rubbing off on the other varsity boys. He currently holds one of the top 10 fastest times ever run by a Glen Burnie cross-country runner.
Mehki Shannon-Harris – Football
Mehki just completed his freshman season on the Varsity football team. Mehki started all 10 Varsity football games, 6 of them on both sides of the ball as a two-way starter. Anyone that knows the sport knows that this is unheard of for a freshman offensive and defensive lineman. Mehki finished the year 8th on the team with 34 tackles on defense and 3rd on the team with 11 pancake blocks on offense. This shows that not only was Mehki a starter but he was also a major contributor on both sides of the ball. Mehki was nominated for Coaches All-County and even though he didn’t win this year, look out for this young man in the future. He became a leader on the offensive line and took responsibility for everyday duties such as setting up the 5-man sled and refusing to allow anyone to leave an area without a breakdown. Mehki is one of the reasons that the OL at GBHS has a very bright future. In the classroom, Mehki takes all honors level core courses. He carried a 3.56 GPA for the first marking period of his freshman year. As a coaching staff, we could not be more proud of Mehki and believe that he should earn the October Student-Athlete of the Month award.
