Despite lingering tenderness in his left arm, Donato this season went 6-0 with a 1.10 ERA. In 44 2/3 innings, he allowed 27 hits while striking out 72. In his best overall outing, a playoff win over Archbishop Carroll, he whiffed 14 and homered twice.
Donato, whose 3-year pitching mark at N-G was 22-2, is bound for Indian River State College in Florida.
Our Player of the Year is shortstop Sean Coyle, of Germantown Academy.
The 5-9, 180-pound senior was outstanding all season, batting .562 with 14 doubles, four triples, 13 homers and 55 RBI for the Inter-Ac League runner-up. He also milked 20 walks, went 22-for-22 on stolen-base attempts and scored 45 runs.
Coyle recently was the Red Sox' third-round selection in the first-year player draft. He's deciding whether to sign or join his brother, Tommy, an '09 GA grad, at North Carolina.
