Athlete of the Year

Sean Holston, Lee, Sr.

After a sizzling indoor season, Holston ran some of the country's fastest times this spring. The Florida State recruit captured the 200 (21.07) and the 400 (46.55) at the Allen Johnson Invitational before winning the 400 at the Southern Track Classic (46.47).

Coach of the Year

Mike Schroer, Potomac School

The sixth-year coach had just 25 athletes, but the Panthers scored in 13 of 16 events to capture the first MAC championship in school history. In 2005, Schroer made the 112-mile trip to the McLean school from Delaware, where his wife, a surgical resident, was performing a rotation. This spring, he commuted from Baltimore.

First Team

Matt Anderson, Westfield, Soph.

Anderson earned two gold medals at the Concorde District championships with season-best times. He won the 400 (49.62) and the 800 (1:56.86).

Jordan Calderwood, Langley, Sr.

Calderwood dominated the hurdles at the Concorde District championships, blitzing the 110s in 14.5 and the 300 in 38.9. He also won the high and triple jumps.

Greg Cooper, Paul VI, Sr.

Cooper won the 110 hurdles at the Allen Johnson Invitational in 14.9 seconds. He also won at the WCAC championships (15.11) and was runner-up in the 300 hurdles (40.53).

Brandon Davis, Centreville, Sr.

At the Concorde District championships, Davis won the triple jump with a mark of 45-6 -- nearly a two-foot personal best -- and the long jump (personal-best 22-7.5).
