Harford All-county

December 14, 2005


Player of the Year

Liz DiNunno


The senior played center back and anchored the defense as Fallston made it to the Class 3A state finals. DiNunno started for two years and played on the varsity for three. She was a clever defensive player who knew how to break up an offensive rush. DiNunno had good stickwork and wasn't afraid to go for loose balls, especially in the midfield where Fallston could quickly turn it around. DiNunno hasn't decided where she will attend college next fall, but she wants to play field hockey wherever she goes.

Coach of the Year

Alice Puckett


Puckett's teams are no strangers to the state finals, but she might have outdone herself this season, as she led a young team to the Class 3A title game. The Cougars suffered a 2-0 loss to Severna Park there, but they pushed the Falcons. Fallston was just 8-6 last season, but Puckett helped it improve to 15-5 this year. The Cougars could be even better next season, as four of Fallston's five All-County first-team picks will return. This was the 12th time Puckett has taken a team to the finals, where she has won nine titles.
