Spero, Zuberer, Zumack named Ward’s Lawn Care & Landscape Co. Players of the Week

Beachwood’s Jack Spero, Kirtland’s Maddie Zuberer and Independence’s Hallie Zumack have been named Ward’s Lawn Care & Landscape Co. Players of the Week for the week ending Sunday, September 14.

Jack Spero
Sophomore
Beachwood High School

A first year runner, Spero has made a big impact on the Beachwood cross country team. During the week of Sept. 8, Spero ran an 18:04 to finish in 13th place at the McDonough Invitational.

Spero, who also carries a 4.0 grade point average, followed that up with a third place finish at the Cardinal Husky Invitational on Saturday.

“As a first year runner he has improved every meet,” said Beachwood coach Jamie Lader. “He really trains hard.”

Maddie Zuberer
Junior
Kirtland High School

Zuberer all just one goal in three Kirtland wins. That goal came in a 3-1 win over Wellington. She posted shutouts over Cuyahoga Heights (2-0) and Orange (3-0).

She has 23 shutouts in her Kirtland career.

Hallie Zumack
Junior
Independence High School

In three matches, Zumack recorded 96 assists (an average of 10.6 per game) for the undefeated and state-ranked Blue Devils.

The junior co-captain also coordinates Independence’s fast-paced offense and her leadership is integral to the team’s success.

“Hallie had a great week of distributing 96 assists to our hitters,” said Independence head coach Megan Osysko. “She delivers a great set where the hitters are able to see the block and open holes on the opponents’ side. Hallie does a nice job of bettering the second ball and making a good decision for the team’s success to get a point.”
