Player of the Year

Colin Brumsted, Atholton, Sr.

Brumsted was one of the most talented scorers in the league and one of the fiercest checkers. He scored 28 goals for his second straight 20-goal season. Atholton's captain also had 14 assists and led the Raiders to their second straight county regular season title.

Coach of the Year

Michael Rand, Howard

Rand volunteered to coach the Lions 11 years ago when his son was a freshman and hasn't stopped since. He has led the Lions to five league titles. This season, Howard beat defending county champion Atholton, 9-8, for its first county title since 1999 with a determined and balanced group of players. The Lions finished 9-3-1 after losing to Broadneck, 6-5, in the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League Tier II playoffs.

First Team

Pat Cavanaugh, Atholton, Jr.: A valuable member of the Raiders' top scoring line, Cavanaugh had 15 goals and 19 assists.

J.L. Feeley, Centennial, Sr.: A three-time all-county selection, the swift-skating winger was the mainstay among a depleted Eagles squad, scoring 23 goals.

Kiel Chesley, Hammond, Jr.: Chesley transferred this season from Mount St. Joseph, and the winger did more damage in eight games than some players do in a career. He scored 34 goals and had 10 assists for the Golden Bears provisional team, which finished 6-3-1.

Nick Linaburg, Howard, Jr.: Linaburg was at his best when the Lions needed him, scoring four goals in the team's 9-8 county championship game win over Atholton. The winger finished the year with 22 goals and 16 assists.

Lark Creel, Atholton, Sr.: Two-time all-county goalkeeper kept the Raiders in many games, making 207 saves for an 89.2 save percentage. He was 11-2, with a 1.92 goals against average.

Eric Feigenheimer, Long Reach, Soph.: Feigenheimer kept the Lightning in many games as its goalie but was also effective when he skated as a defenseman, scoring a team-high six goals and adding six assists. He made 133 saves in four games in net.

Jake Lefenfeld, Howard, Sr.: A team leader and mainstay on the blueline for the Lions, Lefenfeld's 6-3 frame was perfect for a true stay-at-home defenseman. He had one goal and seven assists.

Jon Eichel, River Hill, Sr.: The Hawks allowed 28 goals this season, and Eichel's strong forechecking ability was a big reason. The tough defender manned the blueline for the Hawks all season, scoring two goals and adding one assist.
