Vote For The BlueStreak-Ruden Report Male And Female Players Of The Week

With a goal of recognizing the accomplishments of more athletes, and because of the popularity of our Team of the Week votes, we are experimenting the rest of the season with letting readers decide our BlueStreak-Ruden Report Male and Female Players of the Week, with the hope that this will become a permanent process starting in the fall.

This week’s vote will run until noon on Thursday. The winners will receive our Team of the Week T-shirts.

Here are the male finalists:

Ben Casparius, Staples Baseball. Casparius struck out 16 and finished with two hits and three RBIs, including a two-run homer, in a 5-2 win over New Canaan.

Ryan Donnelly, Fairfield Warde Baseball. Donnelly went 3 for 4 with a triple and five RBIs in an 11-1 win over rival Fairfield Ludlowe.

Robbie Jones, New Canaan Baseball. Jones allowed three hits and pitched five shutout innings in his first start of the year, and homered in a 5-0 win over St. Joseph.

Marco Monteiro, Norwalk Baseball. Monteiro was 6 for 10, with two doubles, three home runs, including a grand slam, and 9 RBIs.

Bailey Savio, Greenwich Lacrosse. Savio won 13 of 17 faceoffs in a 12-8 loss to Darien.


Here are the female finalists:

Sophia Barbour, Darien Softball. Barbour homered in three games this week, including a walkoff game-winner against St. Joseph, in which she threw a two-hit shutout.

      I seek nominations from all over and try to keep track of all athletes but it is hard for me to keep up on everyone (which is why I seek out nominations). Sorry this got overlooked.

  2. Do you nominate defense players in boys lacrosse (aside from goalies) ?

      I never put restrictions on any position. Defensive players often get overlooked because there are few measurable statistics, but I consider everyone.

    I’d like to point out that this week an RHS Sophmore here in ridgefield named Weston Carpender scored 7 goals and had two assists, which seems more than deserving of a nomination
