PLAYER OF THE YEAR
MF Julie Gardner | Severna Park » Sr.
The repeat All-Met was dynamic in the midfield, using her speed to get open, elude defenders and get a clear shot. Gardner scored 51 goals and had 17 assists for the 20-0 Maryland 4A/3A champion Falcons, including six in the state championship win over Catonsville. Will play for Virginia.
» Favorite piece of equipment: Her stick
Gardner had a favorite stick in middle school, but it chipped on a cold day and now hangs in her room as a memento. She’s only used two sticks in four years at Severna Park. “You have to be comfortable with it,” Gardner said. “Playing around with it helps that. I don’t really like to change sticks. Everyone’s stick has a different feel, and it’s hard to play well with someone else’s.”
COACH OF THE YEAR
Michele Gates | Chantilly
In her fourth season, Gates guided the Chargers to the only undefeated regular season (11-0) of any Virginia public school team. With only five seniors in the starting lineup, Chantilly made the Concorde District and Northern Region tournament finals.
