|Berhanu’s smooth footwork paced the Quakers’ attack with 40 goals and 19 assists. He was part of three MAC championship teams during his career. ||A physical and fast presence for the Lions, Lapnet’s 30 goals and 10 assists in the tough WCAC didn’t come easy as he often was double- or triple-teamed. ||Known for his blazing speed and constant chatter, Lee set the Colonels’ single-season scoring record with 21 goals. Will play for Maryland. ||Considered one of the area’s best finishers, Stertzer had 43 goals and 19 assists to lead the Huskies to the regular season MAC championship. |

Lansing notched 16 goals and 19 assists. ||Incredibly quick with the ball, Rose led the Falcons to the Anne Arundel County championship and the Maryland 4A semifinals with 16 goals.

|D Howard Turk ||D Rodrigo Zuleta ||G Dan Gressang |
|Flint Hill » Sr. ||Whitman » Sr. ||Bishop McNamara » Sr. |

A four-year starter on the varsity, he scored five goals and had six assists. ||A four-year letterman, Gressang was crucial to the Mustangs’ success in the WCAC, averaging more than eight saves over the past two seasons while posting four shutouts. |
