FIELD HOCKEY

Player of the Year

Sarah Cates

Mount Hebron

A four-year starter with superb stick skills, Cates, a forward, played more like a midfielder, shining on defense as well as offense. She proved a strong finisher, but she also controlled the action anywhere near her, initiating a lot of the offensive opportunities for her teammates. She scored 15 goals and contributed nine assists. Cates also showed off defensive skills that set the county champions moving in transition. A threat any time she touched the ball, she could penetrate the defense with her dodge and her smooth stick skills, or she could distribute with her precision passing.

Coach of the Year

Jeannette Ireland

Mount Hebron

After guiding the Vikings to a surprising county championship in 2004, Ireland kept the preseason favorites on top this season. The No. 3 Vikings finished 15-2 overall and 9-1 in the county. They reached the Class 3A East regional final, where they fell to No. 1 and eventual state champion Severna Park. This was Ireland's fifth county crown in 16 years and the third in four years. Along the way, the Vikings, who won their first 13 games, twice defeated No. 5 and state Class 3A finalist Fallston by a single goal, and beat No. 7 Century, 1-0, in overtime.
