Player of the Year

BEN HOSTETLER, River Hill, Sr.

Attackman scored a school-record 63 goals and added 29 assists and 76 ground balls to lead his team to the semifinals of the 3A/2A North Region tournament and a second-place finish in the county standings.

Hostetler posted 24 goals and eight assists in four games against the county's other top teams -- Centennial, Mount Hebron, Glenelg and Hammond. He has recorded 123 goals and 57 assists the past two years and will play football for Georgetown this fall.

Coach of the Year


Seventh-year coach guided the Golden Bears to a fourth-place finish in league play with a record of 7-3, tying their highest finish since 1992.

Hammond, which finished 10-5 overall after losing to River Hill in the quarterfinals of the 3A/2A North Region tournament, has moved into the county's upper echelon of boys' lacrosse, improving on last year's fifth-place finish and a ninth-place showing in 2003. "It's taken some time and a lot of hard work," Griffin said. "But we're finally moving in the right direction."
