Spring preview

March 21, 2003

Jessica Allen

Hereford, midfield

An athletic All-Metro pick, Allen showed off a multifaceted game, tough on defense while scoring 49 goals and 27 assists.

Laura Cipro

Mount Hebron, defense

The best defender in a perennially stingy defense, the All-Metro stopper should continue to frustrate the area's top guns.

Michelle DeChant

Annapolis, midfield

In transition and settled situations, the Panthers' senior brings the same hard shot, producing 59 goals last season.

Christina Juras

McDonogh, attack

The All-Metro attack wing put the zing in the Eagles' transition by dominating the loose balls and contributed 57 goals and 25 assists.

Kelly Kasper

Century, midfield

After leading the Knights to a state title in their first varsity season of soccer, the junior transfer will try for an encore.

Mary Key

St. Mary's, attack

A slippery offensive threat able to make the big plays, Key had 41 goals and 25 assists a year ago.

Chrissy Rude

Hereford, attack

The All-Metro scorer used her size and strength to overpower defenders to the tune of 71 goals, including six in the state title victory.

Coco Stanwick

Notre Dame Prep, attack

Double and triple teams couldn't stop the All-Metro playmaker from scoring 43 goals and dishing out 39 assists.

Schuyler Sutton

Severn, attack

The versatile scorer should have the Admirals on the move in the A Conference coming off a 56-goal and 13-assist season.

Kristen Waagbo

Mount Hebron, attack

The Howard County Player of the Year put the punch in the No. 1 Vikings offense with 61 goals and 33 assists, including a record-setting six feeds in the state final.
