Michael Carroll | Varsity Lacrosse | Junior
The junior attackman registered his 100th career goal against Pingry on May 16th. He is only the ninth player in school history to accomplish that feat. To date, Carroll has 105 goals and 23 assists in his career. On May 20th, Carroll registered a career-high eight points (5G, 3A) against St Joe's Metuchen to help the Colts advance to the next round of the Non-Public A State Tournament.
"Mike has been an important part of our team since he joined us as a freshman in 2015," head coach Dave Santos said. "This year, he has started to assert himself more on the offensive end and we look forward to watching his continued growth and development moving forward."
Emanuel Lazzaro | Varsity Golf | Senior
The senior captain helped lead the Colts to an incredible season on the golf course. CBA won the county, conference, sectional and state titles with Lazzaro playing an integral role in the victories, averaging a 37.3 over nine holes this season. Lazzaro was recently named a CBA scholar-athlete and received a scholarship from the United States Golf Association at a NJSIAA event.
"The University of Notre Dame doesn't know how lucky they are to have Manny coming to campus," head coach Tim Sewnig said. "He has the right stuff in all ways: he is a master motivator, an outstanding student, and a great person with a huge heart."
Sean Reilly | Varsity Tennis | Senior
The second singles player and team co-captain was instrumental in the Colts' successful season. He took big wins in second singles in the A North Division, Monmouth County and South Sectional Championships to help CBA win all three titles. Reilly finished the year with 30 total wins to his credit.
"Sean has been phenomenal for us this year. He didn't miss an off-season conditioning session, he worked hard on his game in clinics, and has been lights out on the court this season," head coach Courter Smith said. "Sean has used his varsity experience to help the younger players. He not only speaks with them, but he also shows them how to compete.
