Athlete Of the Year

Sean Holston, Lee, Sr.

The three-time All-Met was one of the top sprinters in the country, winning the Virginia AAA 300-meter title a week after becoming the first male to sweep the sprints at the Northern Region championships. At Nike Nationals, he won the 400 in a meet-record 47.12 seconds before winning the 200 in 21.53. Had the fastest times in the country for 300, 400 and 500 meters.

Coach of the Year

Gary Powell, Lee

Powell had just two athletes at the AAA championships, but the Lancers scored 30 points to take third, the area's best finish. One of Powell's finest accomplishments during his 15-year tenure was developing Sean Holston, one of the best sprinters in the nation in just his second indoor season.

First Team

Matt Anderson, Westfield, Soph.-- Was runner-up to Holston in the 500 in a personal-best 1:05.17 before finishing third in the 300 at the Northern Region championships. He was the Concorde District champion in both the 300 and the 500.

Jordan Calderwood, Langley, Sr.-- Was one of the area's best all-around athletes, winning the 55 hurdles at the Liberty District meet (personal-best 7.69). He was also the Northern Region champion in the 55 hurdles (7.77) and high jump (6-3) and took third in the pole vault (12-6).

Brandon Davis, Centreville, Sr.-- Davis was fifth in the long jump and had a personal-best triple jump of 43-10.75 at the AAA state championships. At the Northern Region meet, he was tops in the log jump and ran on the Wildcats' 800-meter relay team that finished second.
