* Brendan Bellotte, Annapolis, Senior, Midfield -- A force with or without the ball, Bellotte finished with 20 goals, 11 assists and a team-high 99 ground balls for Dan Hart's 8-6 Panthers. He is headed for Division III lacrosse power Salisbury State.

* Matt Clune, St. Mary's, Junior, Attack -- A pleasant surprise for the Saints, Clune led the MSA A Conference champions with 32 goals and 24 assists. "He has excellent stickwork and he's a very good shooter inside," said St. Mary's coach Jim Moorhead.

* Dudley Dixon, Severn, Senior, Attack -- After missing much of last season with a knee injury, Dixon returned with his reconstructed knee this year and kept the Admirals respectable with 35 goals and nine assists. The Towson State-bound senior was Severn's "go-to guy," said first-year coach Mike Burnett.

* Jason Hull, Broadneck, Senior, Midfield -- A three-year starter, team captain and faceoff man for the Bruins (15-1), Hull finished his final campaign with 25 goals and 19 assists. "He is one of the hardest workers I've ever had at Broadneck," said Bruins coach Clay White, who will be able to watch Hull perform next year at the Naval Academy. "He's always ready to play."

* Alex Irmler, Broadneck, Senior, Defense -- A three-year varsity starter and team captain, Irmler used a combination of good position and take-away checks. "When he checked you, you knew it," said White, whose team finished the season 15-1 and successfully defended its state title. "He's just a tremendously fierce competitor." Irmler will attend Penn State.

* David LaChapelle, Severn, Senior, Defense -- This 6-foot-3, 190-pounder has it all, but it was his speed, coordination and stickwork that attracted the University of Maryland. "David has unlimited potential," said Burnett. "He's just unbelievable on ground balls."

* Andy Mocarsky, North County, Senior, Attack -- Mocarsky's 36 goals and 57 assists this season make him the Knights' all-time leader in points (186) and assists (109). A three-year player, Mocarsky has been a member of two state semifinalist teams and one state finalist. "He's a terrific set-up man," said North County coach Paul Shea. "He's very cagey working behind the goal. He's quick and unselfish."

* Sam Peterson, Broadneck, Senior, Goalie -- A three-year varsity starter, Peterson was a big reason the Bruins won their second consecutive Class 3A-4A state championship. He faced 224 shots this season and recorded 162 saves for a .723 save percentage. "He has been the heart and soul of Broadneck lacrosse the past three seasons," said White. "He's as good out of the goal as he is in it." He will attend Fairfield University (Conn.).

* Kevin Reichardt, St. Mary's, Senior, Midfield -- His 16 goals and 19 assists, along with his leadership qualities, helped the Saints win their first MSA A Conference championship. "He was the backbone of the whole team," said Moorhead. "He was an intangible leader who did so many things well that don't show up in stats." He will attend the University of North Carolina.

* Peter Rowan, St. Mary's, Senior, Defense -- What Rowan lacked in physical attributes he more than made up for with his mental approach to the game. "Pete is a smart defenseman who BTC succeeded by knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the attackman he faced," said Moorhead. His stickwork and clearing ability enabled the Saints to capitalize on numerous unsettled situations. He is headed for Washington and Lee University.

* Greg Sabo, North County, Senior, Attack -- This four-year varsity player ended a brilliant career with 44 goals and 35 assists and helped earn the Knights a berth in the state semifinals. His 89 career goals make him the Knights' all-time scorer. "He's a great finisher," said Shea, whose teams have produced a 41-10 record over the past three seasons. "He knows what to do with ball once he gets it." Sabo will attend UMBC.

* Steve Schummer, St. Mary's, Senior, Defense -- Schummer drew the opposing team's top midfielder or attackman and managed to shut down many of them completely. "We matched him up with other team's best offensive player," said Moorhead, "and he did a great job stopping those players." He will attend Georgetown University.

* Todd Vizcarrondo, St. Mary's, Junior, Midfield -- Vizcarrondo finished with 32 goals and six assists and stepped up when it counted most as he scored two goals in each of the Saints' final four games. His 32 goals are the most scored by any midfielder in Moorhead's 15 seasons at St. Mary's. "He shoots the ball so well you have to respect his shot," said Moorhead.
