Baltimore All-county

BOYS

CROSS COUNTRY

RUNNER OF THE YEAR

Dwight Parker

Woodlawn

Despite a shortened season capped by a family vacation that forced the junior to miss the Class 4A state championships, Parker proved that he was still a threat in the area. His time of 17 minutes in the elite division at Bull Run was the fourth fastest time by a male runner at that invitational. Parker's winning time of 16:15.3 at Dulaney for the Baltimore County title bettered his previous career-best by more than 10 seconds. And he claimed his second straight Class 4A North regional crown.

Coach of the Year

Jose Albornoz

Loyola

When the Dons opened the season with an upset of Broadneck -- the reigning Class 4A state champion which was No. 1 at the time -- at the Barnhart Memorial Invitational, Albornoz was already calling his squad one of the most talented he had coached in his career. Loyola did not lose a single race this fall, defeating Broadneck again in the elite division at Bull Run, surpassing Eleanor Roosevelt at the Harford Invitational, and capturing the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title for the fifth time since 1997.

GIRLS

CROSS COUNTRY

Runner of the Year

Michelle Donadio

Franklin

Increased strength and stamina from a hard-paced regimen of summer training helped the senior register her most successful season. Donadio won three times and never fell outside of the top six in three other invitationals and championships. She collected her first Baltimore County title as well as the Class 3A North regional crown. Donadio also took the medium schools division at Bull Run, beating Towson senior Lauren Capone and North Carroll senior Katie Hursey for top honors.

Coaches of the Year

Russel Drylie and Elena Basignani

Hereford

Some might say that the addition of freshman standout Kristen Malloy was a gift, but that would ignore the fact that the Bulls captured the Class 2A state championship without Malloy last fall. Malloy certainly gave Hereford the No. 1 runner to keep pace with the leaders, but Drylie and Basignani also cultivated a culture of success and tradition with this year's squad. The team responded by rolling through the competition for its second straight state and North regional crowns.
