* PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Julie Green, Dulaney, junior, pitcher -- The windmilling left-hander sparked Dulaney to its first appearance in the state semifinals. She posted a 6-4 record, but three of those losses (3-2, 2-1, 6-4) were due to errors; she easily could have been 9-1. Green gave up only six earned runs (0.33 ERA) and nine walks in 69 innings and struck out 59. She posted five shutouts and gave up only 37 hits. In addition, she won two big playoff games, against Western and Perry Hall (Class 4A, Region II title game).

* COACH OF THE YEAR: Lisa Meyer, Owings Mills -- Meyer has orchestrated an amazing turnaround at Owings Mills, capped by its second straight Class 1A, Region II title and state semifinal appearance. The Eagles went winless during her first two years, when blowouts were the norm. The Eagles then began to improve, winning two in 1990, four in 1991 before going 9-10 and winning the region title last year. This year, the Eagles won 11 of their last 14 for a 13-8 mark with another region title and state semifinal appearance. The groundwork has been laid for future success.

* Eleanor Brooks, Garrison Forest, sophomore, outfielder -- The bat had plenty of punch, as she hit .636, driving in 21 runs on only 14 hits. She also had a home run and four doubles while playing great defense for the Grizzlies.

* Erin Fitzpatrick, Eastern Vo-Tech, junior, infielder -- She did a little bit of everything for the Mavericks, hitting .447 with two homers and 20 RBI. She was nearly perfect defensively, making only two errors on 62 chances for a .967 fielding percentage.

* Debbie Johnson, McDonogh, senior, utility player -- Johnson turned in a memorable season, batting .405 with 21 RBI and 20 stolen bases. She played catcher -- despite being left-handed -- this season, and can play five positions.* Jen Jones, Dulaney, senior, outfielder -- Let the numbers speak for themselves: .476 batting average, .586 on-base average, 17 RBI, three homers and two big hits in the playoffs for the Lions, who made the state semifinals for the first time.

* Amy Lohrig, Chesapeake, senior, catcher -- In addition to being a strong defensive threat, she turned in some good numbers on offense. Lohrig batted .489 with a .778 slugging average and 13 RBI on 22 hits. She also had a .617 on-base average.

* Tina Lotz, Eastern Vo-Tech, senior, designated hitter -- She batted .500 with 23 RBI on only 20 hits for the Mavericks. Lotz can hit for average or power with 13 singles and seven extra-base hits. She also played nearly perfect defense, making just two errors on 46 chances.

* Katie Marsheck, Dundalk, sophomore, pitcher -- Marsheck posted a 10-2 mark with a 0.33 ERA, striking out 127 in 85 innings and giving up only 29 hits. She went the distance 12 times and threw four shutouts using a great fastball.

* Angie Martin, Chesapeake, senior, infielder -- Let's hear it for defense. The dazzling shortstop used her great quickness to record 40 putouts and 41 assists. She also did well at the plate, batting .273 with a .439 on-base average and 11 stolen bases.

* Samantha Porter, Patapsco, sophomore, outfielder -- She sparked the Patriots from the leadoff slot, batting .342 with 11 RBI. Porter, however, may have been more dangerous on defense. With one of the best arms in the county, she threw out six runners.

* Gina Surock, Loch Raven, senior, infielder -- The clutch hitter batted .421 with 15 RBI and 17 runs. She knocked in the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh three times. Six of her hits were for extra bases.

* Becky Sutton, Loch Raven, senior, utility player -- She batted .350 with 15 RBI and seven extra-base hits. On the mound, she went 12-4 and averaged 12 strikeouts.

* Nicole Walker, Towson, junior, infielder -- A top hitter in the metro area, Walker batted .591 as the Generals made it to the Class 2A state semifinals. She had nine extra-base hits and 21 RBI, often using her blazing speed to her advantage.
