Players To Watch

High School Sports Girls Soccer

September 02, 2005

Brittany Baer

Westminster, forward

Most of the Owls' offense either starts or finishes with the senior standout, who had 15 goals and 12 assists to lead Carroll County in scoring. Karen Blocker

Arch. Spalding, goalkeeper

All those powerful offenses in the mighty IAAM didn't faze Blocker as a freshman last year, as evidenced by her 10 shutouts and 0.95 goals-against average.

Alyssa Bourne

Glenelg, defender

The junior sweeper is calm and deliberate as the Gladiators' security blanket in the back, and she could also jump into the offensive flow this season.

Allyson Carey

John Carroll, forward

After an impressive 14-goal, six-assist freshman debut, the talented sophomore will be sure to receive more attention from would-be defenders as the Patriots' primary scorer.Brittany Hadaway

Inst. of Notre Dame, midfielder

The Indians hope their senior leader's straight-ahead approach makes for a clear path to a second straight IAAM A Conference championship game appearance.

Jessica Knight

Perry Hall, forward

Fast and relentless to goal, the Gators' senior - who has orally committed to Richmond - will build on the 45 goals and 20 assists she has accrued in her first three varsity seasons.

Katie Kolb

C. Milton Wright, goalkeeper

The penalty area belongs to Kolb, who brings smart and aggressive play along with 30 career wins as she enters her senior season. Emma Santucci

Notre Dame Prep, defender

The Blazers' senior brings a rare luxury with the ability to effectively mark out opposing teams' top scoring threat.

Erika Theisen

River Hill, midfielder

The gifted junior, who had 10 goals and eight assists, brings creative play to the middle of the field for the Hawks.

Sam Young

Severna Park, forward

Opposing defenses beware: Give the Falcons' junior any time and space in the penalty area and you'll soon be taking the ball out of the net.
