Wunder Wiener, Wonder on the Mound
Congratulations to Elizabeth Schrier of Lacey Township High School, this year’s recipient of the $1000 WOBM/Gateway Toyota Student of the Week scholarship.
Liz who will graduate next Wednesday, was randomly selected from the 38 weekly honorees by Gateway Toyota General Manager Rick Cardwell. A high honor roll student, she was a member of the National Honor Society, Student Government Association, Interact, Heroes and Cool Kids and the Concert Band.
Liz earned 10 varsity letters during her Lacey career in four varsity sports and is headed to the University of Delaware where her major will be Speech Language Pathology.
The Shore Conference Lacrosse Coaches Association Senior All Star game will be played tonight at Howell High School and feature many of the top players in Monmouth and Ocean County. Presented by our Shore Sports Network and MadDog Lacrosse the South All Star roster includes Joey Ferrara of Brick Memorial, Ryan McWhorter of Southern, Matt Gannon of Toms River East and Mike McIntyre of Wall.
The high school game is at 7:30 p.m. and before that at 5:30 p.m. there will be a youth all-star game. Ocean Trophies of Lanoka Harbor will provide MVP awards in both games.
You are no doubt aware of the car accident Monday in which a driver smashed into the well-known Wunder Wiener hot dog stand in what used to be the Beachwood Shopping Center. Business owner and longtime Beachwood Councilman Jerry Lacrosse remains hospitalized at Jersey Shore University Medical Center with serious injuries from that crash while a GoFundMe page has been created by other family members.
Over $4300 of the $20,000 goal has already been raised to help with the lost business.
In case you missed it Todd Frazier is not the only local baseball product playing in the major leagues.
Mark Leiter Jr. made his third appearance with the Phillies last night after being called up from the minors recently. The latest in a long line of outstanding pitchers with the Leiter name, Mark did a nice job for the Phillies last year and would have started the season on the major league roster if not for an injury suffered late in spring training.
A 27-year old former Toms River North and NJIT standout, he has allowed just two runs in six innings of relief this month.
