June 02, 1993|By Roch Eric Kubatko

* Kate Brew, Annapolis, Jr., goal -- Brew used her sensational reflexes to record 122 saves. She faced 213 shots, gave up 77 goals and constantly drew praise from rival coaches, as well as her own. "Without a doubt, she's the best goalie in the county," said coach Dave Gehrdes.

* Amy Carnaggio, Severna Park, Sr., midfield -- Carnaggio scored 34 goals and had 10 assists while doing "a lot of the dirty work," said coach Carin Peterson. An All-American last year, Carnaggio is a "scrappy player who is both offensive- and defensive-minded," Peterson said. She scored three goals in last week's 14-6 win over South Carroll in the 3A-4A state final and will attend Penn State.

* Karen Chesley, Broadneck, Sr., attack -- Chesley finished the season with 26 goals and 26 assists, as she led Broadneck into the region playoffs. Named the Bruins' Most Valuable Player, Chesley displayed "great basic skills and was the leader of our team," said coach Leann Shuck. Chesley will attend Anne Arundel Community College.

* Lauren Feinstein, Annapolis, Sr., midfield -- Feinstein had 28 goals and 13 assists for Annapolis and displayed "an outstanding field sense," said Gehrdes. "She can play anywhere we'd want to put her." Feinstein will attend Cornell University.

* Missy Holmes, St. Mary's, Sr., defense -- Holmes scored seven goals, had 10 assists and led St. Mary's in interceptions. But her primary responsibility was to shut down the opposing team's best scorer. "She plays basketball, too, and she knows how to read an offense," said coach Tina Lewnes. "She gets the ball for us, and she can go to the goal." Holmes will attend the University of Maryland.

* Kathy McCafferty, Severna Park, Jr., defense -- McCafferty ended up as one of Severna Park's leading scorers with 18 goals and six assists. She played outstanding defense and usually was assigned to the other team's best midfielder. She was chosen to play in the U.S. Women's Lacrosse Association's national tournament.

* Erin McNeally, Severna Park, Jr., defense -- McNeally usually was given the responsibility of defending the other team's best line attacker, and she didn't disappoint Peterson. She silenced some of the area's more explosive scorers. "She's done a nice job all year," Peterson said.

* Denise Perrone, Chesapeake, Sr., midfield -- Perrone not only scored 28 goals and had 10 assists, but she also allowed Chesapeake to dominate teams on the draw all season. "I didn't see anybody in the county who was better at draws than her," said coach Jim Buchan. "Also, I haven't had a kid since I've been here who sees the whole field as well as she does." Perrone will attend Anne Arundel Community College.

* Robin Quinton, Severn, Sr., attack -- Quinton led Severn with 36 goals and 15 assists. Often overlooked because of the county's depth at attack, Quinton emerged as one of the more skilled players at the position and was recognized by numerous coaches in the area for her contribution to the Admirals. She will attend Anne Arundel Community College.

* Megan Riley, South River, Soph., attack -- Riley scored 32 goals and had 16 assists in leading South River back into the region playoffs. She was selected to play in the USWLA's national tournament. "She hasn't even began to peak," said coach Paula Tobin. "That's what's so exciting."

* Cory Samaras, Annapolis, Sr., defense -- Playing a position that often gets overlooked, Samaras forced people to take notice with her play at cover point. A four-year starter, she scored four goals, had one assist and was chosen for the USWLA's national tournament. Many coaches believe that no one was better on the defensive end than Samaras, who will attend Princeton University.

* Cristi Samaras, Annapolis, Jr., attack -- Samaras led the county in scoring for the second straight year, this time totaling 49 goals and 38 assists. She became a more well-rounded player this season with her improved passing, and was selected to participate in the USWLA's national tournament. "She really was our team's offensive and defensive leader," said Gehrdes. "To slow us down, you had to slow her down."

* Erin Wylde, Severna Park, Jr., midfield -- An All-American last season, Wylde led Severna Park in scoring this year with 40 goals and 15 assists. She scored four goals in the 3A-4A state final and was chosen to play in the USWLA's national tournament. "She's the best attack wing in Anne Arundel County, if not the state of Maryland," Peterson said.
