Catonsville’s Brian Ruppel and Carver A & T’s Mallory Cooper – Baltimore Sun.

Each week, The Baltimore Sun will recognize one high school player from a boys sport and one from a girls sport for their athletic achievements.

The senior goalie enjoyed another remarkable week, leading the No. 11 Comets to two more wins as they improved to 13-0.

In Wednesday’s 11-4 victory over Marriotts Ridge, Ruppel finished with 19 saves to match his season high. On Thursday, he made 10 saves and added five ground balls as the Comets claimed an 11-6 win over Baltimore County rival Dulaney. The victory moved Catonsville to 4-0 in the county’s Division I, which locked up first place.

This season, the Maryland commit has turned away 97 shots for a 71% save rate while allowing just 3.3 goals per game. The team captain has also scooped up 23 ground balls and distributed the ball effectively to help the Comets’ clearing game.

The Wildcats enjoyed a highly productive 4-0 week, including three Baltimore County Division I wins. Their standout junior pitcher was in the middle of all that success.

Cooper secured the victory in three games – highlighted by a 6-0 win over second-place Catonsville on Friday – and also produced at the plate. She opened the week with a no-hitter in a 7-0 win over Sparrows Point on April 25, striking out 16 batters. In 21 innings pitched, she had a 1.29 ERA with 46 strikeouts. At the plate, she batted .714 with nine RBIs and seven runs, including a 4-for-4 day against Catonsville that helped avenge the team’s only loss.

Carver A&T (11-1) is atop the league standings at 8-1. Cooper is 8-1 on the mound and batting.529.
