New Haven, Mo - Each year, the Post-Dispatch honors an athlete from each area high school in the Scholar Athlete program.

Thursday afternoon New Haven High School’s Athletic Director, Ray Steinhoff, announced that Lance Gerlemann has been named New Haven High School’s recipient of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Scholar Athlete award.

Gerlemann has been a four-year member of the basketball team, lettering each of the past three years.

Gerlemann played a key role in New Haven’s run to a Four Rivers Conference Championship during the 2010-2011 season, only the fifth team in school history to win a conference title.

Gerlemann received 1st Team All-Conference recognition as a junior and Honorable Mention in his senior year.

Gerlemann will receive his award at Busch Stadium on May 2, 2012 prior to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game.
