Athlete of the Year

Tameka Jameson | Eleanor Roosevelt, Jr.
On a roster full of standout athletes, Jameson stood out the most, competing at a level reminiscent of many of the great athletes in the Greenbelt school's history. Jameson was the Maryland 4A/3A champion in the 500 meters, barely missing the meet record set by former Roosevelt standout Suziann Reid, and her season best of 1:12.40 ranks fifth all-time. She also ran on the Raiders' strong relays, including the Nike Indoor Nationals champion 4x400.

Coach of the Year

Ed Bowie | Central
The 30-year coach earned his 41st state title, including cross-country and outdoor track championships. It's one that he considered among the sweetest in his tenure. Despite having no home track and just six competitors at the state meet, the Falcons scored 52 points to Poolesville's 38 to win the Maryland 2A/1A title. It was the 16th girls' indoor state title for Central. The Falcons also won the 2A/1A East Region title and were third at the Prince George's County meet.
