Andrew Mahone, Bel Air
SPORT CROSS COUNTRY
STATS -- Mahone has been the top boys runner in Harford County this year. The junior has posted impressive wins in each of the past three weeks. He captured the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Chesapeake divisional championship (15 minutes, 58 seconds), the overall UCBAC title (16:22) and took first place in the Bobcat Invitational (16:46).
SIDELINES -- Mahone burst upon the scene last year, playing a strong role for coach Shawn Loper as he tried to rebuild a regional championship team weakened by graduation. Mahone developed and was a first-team All-County pick as Bel Air closed strongly last season with wins at the county meet, plus a second-place regional finish and ninth-place showing at the states.
Jackie Bradstock, Edgewood
STATS -- Bradstock, a four-year starter, has been a leader for the Rams throughout her varsity career. She was a stopper during her first three years and moved to forward and halfback this season. Bradstock hasn't scored, but is valuable in a number of ways on and off the field. Coach Dana Mazzie said that Bradstock is "a natural leader and a great motivator. I will miss her greatly."
SIDELINES -- Bradstock was one of only two players to make the varsity as a freshman and quickly grew into a strong influence on the Edgewood soccer program. She also stays busy at school, playing lacrosse and performing in musicals. She's also a member of the Student Government Association, National Honor Society, Spanish Club and Spanish National Honor Society.
