Players To Watch

High School Sports Field Hockey

September 02, 2005

Christina Boarman

St. Paul's, forward

A two-time All-Metro pick, the senior easily could boost her eight-goal, six-assist scoring stats with her superb stickwork in the circle. Marian Cassilly

Arch. Spalding, goalkeeper

The senior presents a strong anchor for the rebuilding Cavaliers after stopping 188 shots last season and posting a .903 save percentage. Kelly Filipowicz

Long Reach, forward

Look for the senior to continue to spark the Lightning after leading Howard County in scoring with 19 goals and nine assists. Tara Gardner

Severna Park, midfielder

The area's top returning goal scorer, the senior had a knack for connecting with passes to the left post, deflecting in many of her 31 goals. Brittany Kalkstein

Roland Park, forward

The offensive catalyst in the Reds' run to the IAAM A Conference title, the senior hopes to pick up where she left off after a 13-goal, seven-assist breakout season. Kelly Patterson

South River, defender

The smart, skilled senior anchored the drive to the Class 4A state title and her leadership will be even more valuable as the Seahawks break in a new goalie. Mandy Pickard

North Carroll, midfielder

A do-it-all centerpiece for the Panthers, the senior kept her team moving in transition and could also finish, contributing five goals and three assists. Sarah Seats

St. Paul's, forward

Speed and quickness give the senior an edge over the competition, making her a threat to score on the break or out of a goal-front scuffle. Alicia Thompson

Century, midfielder

The Knights' leading scorer a year ago with nine goals and four assists slides back to the middle, where she can start the offense as well as finish. Mary Waller

C. Milton Wright, midfielder

A veteran of the U.S. Under-16 team, the senior will catalyze the transition and can finish, compiling four goals and three assists.
