PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Amanda Fefel

Catonsville

The senior pitcher and repeat county Player of the Year closed out a fine four-year career with much of the same from years past: overpowering stuff on the mound and equally impressive work at the plate.

This season, she went 17-4 with an 0.80 ERA, striking out 211 in 124-plus innings, as the Comets reached the Class 3A state semifinals. Hitting cleanup for the Comets, Fefel batted .466 with four homers, 21 RBIs and 22 runs scored. An All-Metro selection in each of her four years, Fefel had a 58-9 career mark with 769 strikeouts. She is set to play at UMBC next year.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Brian Radcliffe

Perry Hall

Radcliffe, in his 11th season, guided the Gators to a 14-6 mark and a trip to the county championship game. He assembled a cohesive group that believed in each other and never felt they were out of a game. The Gators came back from late-inning deficits during a three-game stretch in the middle of the season.

Trailing 4-2 to Dulaney in the seventh, the Gators rallied for a 5-4 win with their seven-eight-nine hitters opening the inning. "They played the game with passion, believed and put in the time to be successful," said Radcliffe, who has a 139-68 career mark with five regional titles.
