Posted

Sussex Central High baseball player Jarret Wilkins was voted this week’s State News Athlete of the Week.

The senior started the week with three hits against Dover before hitting a three-run homer with a double against Sussex Academy.
Wilkins is the Golden Knights’ starting catcher, leading a staff that has gave up 17 runs in 31 innings in Central’s 6-0 start to the season. He’s now 8-for-16 with eight RBI in seven games.

Wilkins plans to continue his playing career at Delaware Tech.

“Jarret is off to a great start for his senior season,” said Central coach D.J. Long. “He has also done a great job behind the plate this year.”
