1994 All-harford County Lacrosse Teams The Girls

June 02, 1994|By John W. Stewart

COACH OF THE YEAR

* Nancy Ferguson, Fallston -- There were three excellent coaching performances in the county this season, with Ferguson, a former winner of the honor, the pick over last year's honoree, Kathy Breymaier of C. Milton Wright and Pam Reich of Joppatowne. Fallston (11-2) and Wright (11-4) lost in the state semifinals, and Joppatowne (9-3) in a regional final (to Fallston). Each of the three teams started only three seniors. Fallston scored the highest number of goals against Wright (17) in a non-league win, then Wright won the one that counted, 5-3, on its way to a second straight county title (it was a co-champion last year). At the state level, Wright lost to then-unbeaten Dulaney, 14-6, and Fallston, totally prepared to play, did everything but upset unbeaten Loch Raven, losing in the closing moments to the eventual champion, 9-8.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

* Beanie Lund, John Carroll -- The gifted senior could play attack or midfield. She led her team with 36 goals and 12 assists, good for second-leading scorer in the Association of Independent Schools A Division. A four-year starter for the Patriots, she finished her career with 143 goals. She has a lacrosse scholarship to the University of Maryland.

THE FIRST TEAM AT A GLANCE

* Jackie Bangert, C. Milton Wright, Jr., defense -- She was the defensive leader for the Mustangs, who claimed the county title outright (6-0) after sharing it last year. She wound up with a team-high 97 ground balls and interceptions.

* Krissy Battenfeld, Fallston, Jr., attack -- A two-year player, she was part of the highest goal-scoring starting attack in the county with 29 goals and 19 assists, plus 43 ground balls.

* Courtney Benner, Fallston, Soph., defense -- Primarily a defensive player but also a midfielder, she was second on the team in ground balls with 77, led in interceptions with 16, and was second in knock downs with 12. She had 12 goals and 13 assists.

* Becky Gerhart, C. Milton Wright, Soph., midfield -- A two-year starter, she was part of a corps of speedsters that played a vital role in the team's success. She was the top goal scorer in the county with 42, and contributed nine assists, plus 60 ground balls and interceptions.

* Kim Kalista, C. Milton Wright, Jr., goalkeeper -- She had the top save percentage in the county with 163 on 274 shots. After giving up 17 goals to Fallston in a non-league game, she came back with a top effort in the 5-3 win that counted.

* Lisa Maly, Joppatowne, Jr., defense -- She was the defensive leader for a team that bounced back from a losing season to go 9-2, before losing to Fallston in the Class 1A-2A North regional final.

* Krystin Porcella, John Carroll, Sr., attack -- She capped a fine career by complementing Lund on offense, finishing with 21 goals and 10 assists.

* Amy Rafalski, Bel Air, Sr., midfield -- A team captain, she topped the Bobcats in goals (25) and assists (seven). A center, she used deceptive speed to be the focal point for her side on defense and offense.

* Annie Sappington, C. Milton Wright, Soph., midfield -- Another talented sophomore, she fit right into the middle of the Mustangs' lineup, using her speed equally well on offense and defense. She ended with 20 goals, 15 assists, and 59 ground balls and interceptions.

* Judy Simon, Fallston, Sr., defense -- She was a key defender for a team that allowed more than nine goals only once (a 17-13 win over C. Milton Wright). She also scored three times and had two assists.

* Kathleen Turk, Fallston, Jr., attack -- She led the team in goals with 32 and added 14 assists, plus 54 ground balls.

* Jenny Weber, Fallston, Jr., midfield -- She was a dominating player in the middle with 30 goals, seven assists, and team-highs ground balls (87) and knockdowns (14) plus 14 interceptions.
