GIRLS BASKETBALL

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Marah Strickland

Towson Catholic

The 6-foot junior guard led the Owls to their best season in 21 years with her immense talent and impressive perimeter game.

She averaged 23.2 points and hit 40.2 percent of her three-pointers. Strickland was named the Most Valuable Player in the local division of the Case Three-Point Play Tournament at Georgetown in December. She also averaged six rebounds, five assists and three steals.

COACH of the year

DeToiya McAliley

Milford Mill

Last year's All-Metro Coach of the Year did perhaps an even better job in her second season with the Millers. She certainly faced a different challenge after graduating every starter from last year's state Class 3A state title team.

McAliley rebuilt with former role players, talented transfers and a freshman point guard. She brought the Millers together and they peaked at the right time, going all the way to the Class 2A state final.
