Players To Watch

September 03, 2002

Mandy Bathras

Chesapeake-AA, midfielder

The defensive-minded senior link sets off the offense with powerful free hits and skillful maneuvering in traffic.

Rashmi Bhanot

Long Reach, forward

The skilled setup artist also excels at finishing off deflections, racking up 14 goals and eight assists as a junior.

Lisa Engel

North Carroll, forward

Carroll County's top scoring threat also will take on more responsibility as a senior playmaker at left wing.

Emily Goldman

Mount Hebron, defender

Excelling at goal-line stands, the senior sweeper leads a defense that gave up just 10 goals in 19 games.

Caroline Grumbine

Roland Park, forward

The high-scoring senior shows a knack for being in the right place at the right time, especially in the big games.

Kirsten Halle

Park, defender

Stick skills and quickness enable this senior to mop up just about everything that spills through the middle.

Erin Kelly

Archbishop Spalding, forward

A speed demon with a nose for the goal led Anne Arundel County with a whopping 17 goals and 13 assists as a sophomore.

Hayley Mershon

Towson, defender

A one-girl roadblock, the senior back anchors a unit that allowed only two goals and posted 16 shutouts.

Sarah Tracey

Hereford, midfielder

The sly senior link usually outwits opponents to emerge from unsettled situations with possession.

Kim Zielger

Fallston, forward

A 10-goal scorer, the junior provides instant offense with her ability to make stops and spark transition.
