Clint Peay of Oakland Mills and Linda Bauer of Patapsco are the Players of the Year for The Evening Sun 1990 All-Metro soccer teams.
Broadneck's Kevin McMullen and Patapsco's Pat Poletynski earned Coach of the Year honors.
McMullen guided the Bruins to the state Class 4A boys finals and Poletynski led the Patriots to the state Class 2A/1A girls finals.
Peay, a national team (under-19) player and an All-Metro first-team pick last year, is one of three selections this year from the No. 1-ranked Scorpions, who won the state Class 3A boys championship. Peay (11 goals, nine assists) is joined by teammates, striker Malcolm Gillian (18 goals, nine assists) and back Sean Wray (four assists).
Bauer, a first-team repeater, led the metropolitan area in scoring with 54 goals and 15 assists.
Poletynski began teaching and coaching field hockey at Patapsco in 1969. When girls soccer was instituted on the junior varsity level in Baltimore County in 1984, Poletynski decided to switch sports. "I found it more appealing," she said.
Since then, the Patriots have won two division titles, reached the region finals three times and the state finals this season.
McMullen, who began his career at Brooklyn Park, took over at Broadneck in 1982 and his teams have gone 83-31-9 and won three region titles in that span.
Broadneck placed two players on the boys first team, striker Rich Aftoora (12 goals, six assists) and back Jarett Smith. The Bruins were 2-2-4 at the midpoint of the season when McMullen altered his lineup to free Aftoora and initiated some aggressive strategy. The Bruins then won seven straight before bowing in overtime, 2-1, to unbeaten Bowie in the state finals.
Atholton, the state 2A champ, placed keeper Kori Hunter (five shutouts, nine goals allowed) on the first team, and MSA champ Calvert Hall is represented by striker Bryan Bugarin (18 goals, 11 assists) and midfielder J.J. Kremer (six, seven).
Midfielder Stephen Sietsema (four goals, seven assists) and back Jon Armstrong (one, six) were instrumental in helping Howard finish as the area's No. 2 team. Sietsema is a first-team repeater.
Third-ranked Centennial's Teddy Oh (two goals, two assists) and Dulaney's Chas Zimmerman (10 goals, five assists) add skill and firepower to the first-team midfield.
State Class 4A/3A champion Severna Park and 4A/3A finalist Oakland Mills each placed two players on the girls first team. Betsy Anderson (16 goals, nine assists) spearheaded Severna Park's offense and Tina Riley (three goals, one assist) anchored the defense that registered 11 shutouts.
Mia Dammen (nine goals, five assists) and Stefanie Magro (14, seven) helped Oakland Mills to the 4A/3A finals, combining finesse with aggressive play.
Dulaney's Terri Rich (15 goals, 15 assists) joins Bauer as the only other first-teamer from Baltimore County.
The Catholic League placed two defenders on the first team, John Carroll's Julia Malinowski (nine goals, six assists) and St. Mary's Laura Coakley (four, four), who last week signed a letter of intent with Wake Forest for basketball. Both were honorable-mention selections in 1989.
Samantha Andersch (15 goals and 17 assists) and Meade's Amanda Simmons (29, six) bolster the high-scoring first-team attack. Meg Caro (six goals, seven assists) of Centennial lends strong support to the midfield. All three were honorable-mention selections last year.
Glen Burnie's Kim Myers repeats as the first-team keeper. She had 148 saves, running her career total to 464, and allowed 20 goals.
