The first team at a glance 1993 ALL-BALTIMORE CITY/COUNTY GIRLS LACROSSE TEAM

June 02, 1993|By Katherine Dunn

* Alicia Abad, Dundalk, Sr., goalie -- An All-Baltimore County Class 3A-4A coaches' pick, Abad led Dundalk to its first appearance in the regional playoffs. Abad had a .610 save percentage, quarterbacked the defense and came out well for ** interceptions and ground balls.

* Christina Bhanos, Loch Raven, Sr., defense -- Bhanos showed her tremendous talent in the state championship game by holding Mount Hebron's All-Metro second home Lori Pasquantonio to one goal. A terrific position defender, Bhanos had deceptive speed and quickness that made it all but impossible for opponents to roll the crease against this cover point for the All-Baltimore County 1A-2A coaches' team.

* Peggy Boutilier, Roland Park, Jr., midfield -- A defensive-oriented center, this AIS All-Star could beat just about anyone to the ground balls, coming up with more than 150 during the season. Her determination on defense was a key to the AIS A Division champion's transition game. With great speed and stickwork, Boutilier could also finish; she contributed 24 goals and eight assists.

* Jody Cowan, Oldfields, Jr., midfield -- The spark behind Oldfields' drive to the AIS B Division championship, Cowan scored 42 goals, a third of her team's total. A gutsy go-to-the-goal center, the AIS All-Star worked hard to become a more well-rounded player late in the season when she picked up six assists.

* Robyn Disney, Loch Raven, Sr., defense -- Tremendous versatility helped Disney make the switch to defense this season without skipping a beat. Although the All-Baltimore County coaches' pick played more like a midfielder, adding 18 goals and 14 assists, Disney spent most of her time at third man, where her speed and excellent body position defense made her one of the best. She is headed for Loyola.

* Kerri Johnson, Perry Hall, Sr., midfield -- A speedy center, Johnson led Baltimore County in scoring with 87 goals and 26 assists. An excellent shooter despite being double- and triple-teamed in every game, Johnson also played strong defense, often setting the transition game in motion. Loyola-bound, she was named the MVP for the Class 3A-4A team in last week's Baltimore County All-Star Game.

* Shelley Klaes, Loch Raven, Sr., attack -- The Raiders' playmaker, Klaes was a double threat, combining a strong shot with a good eye for the cutters. Not only did she have 53 goals but she also contributed 47 assists, making her the No. 2 scorer for Loch Raven -- one point behind Michele DeJuliis. The All-Baltimore County attacker is headed for James Madison.

* Andrea Krumholz, Friends, Sr., defense -- At cover point, Krumholz was a tenacious checker, often coming up with the ball on steals and setting the transition game into motion. An AIS All-Star, she used her quick feet and a quick stick to put tremendous pressure on the ball. Great at reading the plays, the Dartmouth-bound Krumholz forced many bad passes.

* Brent McCallister, Roland Park, Jr., attack -- With spectacular moves in front of the crease, McCallister had 50 goals and 14 assists. Deceptively quick, she often snatched up a ground ball, made a great move and scored. An AIS All-Star, she led the Reds with four goals in their 10-6 A Division title-game victory over Mount de Sales.

* Aubin McCarthy, Friends, Jr., defense -- A strong position defender at point, McCarthy played great denial defense for the Quakers. This AIS All-Star blocked the passing lanes and had a lot of knockdowns, but she was also tough on attackers trying to challenge the crease. McCarthy joined Krumholz to form the AIS' top defensive tandem.

* Melissa Reese, Seton Keough, Sr., midfield -- The key to transition on a young Gators team, the attack wing scored 26 goals and had 14 assists. Although she missed a couple of games with a broken nose, Reese came back to earn a spot on the AIS All-Star team. An excellent cutter who sees the whole field well, Reese is headed for Richmond.

* Liza Shoemaker, Garrison Forest, Jr., midfield -- A defense-oriented center, Shoemaker was the key to the Grizzlies' transition. An excellent passer, she vacuumed up the ground balls with determination. Her speed and anticipation made her tough on defense, but her offense also picked up a bit as she scored 13 goals and had seven assists.
