FIELD HOCKEY

Player of the Year

Hayley Rausch

Severna Park

With a combination of speed, instincts and uncanny stick skills near the cage, the sophomore forward became a dominating presence in her first full varsity season. Rausch, who first began playing field hockey in the seventh grade, scored a county-high 34 goals to go with nine assists in leading the No. 1 Falcons to their 15th state title. In the Falcons' 3-2 overtime win against Class 4A state champion South River in the county championship game, Rausch scored all three of the Falcons' goals, tying the game late in the second half before scoring the winning goal in overtime.

Coach of the Year

Katie Corcoran

South River

An assistant coach for the previous five years under former coach Laura Hoffner, Corcoran picked up right where her mentor left off last season, as the Seahawks won a second straight Class 4A state championship to complete an impressive 16-3-1 campaign. The first-year coach took some things she learned from Hoffner and also added some of her own wrinkles to get the most from her talented group. With a first-year varsity goalie and a largely new offensive cast, Corcoran leaned on her experienced defense and midfield, pushing them forward to dictate play. The Seahawks also saved their best play for last, rolling to a 3-0 win over Springbrook to capture the program's third title in five years.
