Athlete of the Year

Matthew Centrowitz, Sr.
Broadneck
The five-time All-Met won the Penn Relays mile in a meet-record 4 minutes 8.38 seconds and became the first prep athlete to win both individual running events at the historic meet (he won the 3,000 last year.) Centrowitz owns the fastest 1,600 time and the second-fastest 3,200 time run by a Maryland high schooler. Will compete for Oregon.

Coach of the Year

Mike Schroer (not pictured)
Potomac School
The sixth-year coach had just 25 athletes, but the Panthers scored in 13 of 16 events to capture the program's first Mid-Atlantic Conference championship. 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.
