Middle School Athlete of the Week
The Middle School Athlete of the Week is Malik Smith '21, a member of the middle school baseball team. Malik has been a consistent member of the team since he arrived at Whitfield. Able to play in several positions on the field, he always attempts to do things correctly. When a coach asks him to make an adjustment or improvement, Malik takes the feedback seriously and strives to implement it on his next rep. He is willing to do whatever he can to be a better teammate and baseball player. As an eighth grade player, Malik will be a welcome addition to the high school baseball program and will be missed at the middle school level.
