Player of the Year

Josh Hafkin, Sr.
Georgetown Prep
Hafkin, the repeat Swimmer of the Year and a three-time All-Met, assembled a dominant senior campaign. He set Metros records in the 50-yard freestyle (20.73 seconds) and 100 backstroke (48.80) and anchored the champion 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams, both of which set meet records. He also won Interstate Athletic Conference championships in those events. Will swim for North Carolina.

Coach of the Year

Kirby Weldon
Georgetown Prep
The 17th and final year in a highly successful career was the best. Weldon, who plans to retire, led the Little Hoyas to their fourth consecutive Metros crown. Once a standout swimmer at Prep, he rebuilt the program into a powerhouse. Prep won its seventh straight IAC title and its first national Catholic schools title.
