PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Maliah Morris, F, Jr., St. John’s

A dynamic attacking player with explosive speed and exceptional dribbling ability, Morris was the catalyst behind the Cadets’ run to Washington Catholic Athletic Conference and D.C. state titles. As dangerous one on one as she is combining with teammates, the Clemson recruit — who has spent time with United States youth national teams — tallied a team-best 24 goals and 21 assists this season, including a dramatic sudden-death overtime strike to lift the Cadets past Sidwell Friends for their second straight DCSAA trophy.

A three-sport athlete for Potomac, Caskin broke the Panthers’ all-time scoring record for soccer while helping her team to this year’s ISL AA championship. Will play lacrosse next year at Virginia.

A skillful midfielder who captained River Hill to back-to-back state championships, Chun finished the season with 13 goals and 17 assists. Will play at UMBC.

Katie Coritz, D, Sr., Paul VI

The Columbia recruit’s defensive tenacity and ability to make plays from the back were key factors in Paul VI’s consecutive WCAC final appearances.

Makenna Morris, MF, So., St. John’s

Versatile sophomore was a force all over the field for the WCAC champions, finishing the season with 16 goals and nine assists despite missing several games for U.S. youth national team duty. Verbally committed to Clemson.

Molly Olcott, D, Sr., Churchill

The four-year starter anchored a Bulldogs back line that gave up an average of five goals per season since her freshman year. Will play at NYU.

Micah Reid, D, Sr., Bishop McNamara

A two-time all-WCAC first-team selection, Reid was a dominant presence at center back for the Mustangs, while also tallying five goals.

Grace Sherman, MF, Jr., Potomac School

Victoria Tran, MF, Sr., River Hill

A captain and playmaker who controlled the midfield for River Hill’s state championship team. Will play at Navy.

Grace Walsh, MF, Sr., St. John’s

An intelligent two-way midfielder whose playmaking ability was integral to the Cadets’ WCAC championship win over Paul VI. Will play at Purdue.

COACH OF THE YEAR
