BOYS PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Chris Brown

Liberty

Brown defeated North Carroll's Reid Smetzer to repeat as county champion. The junior also was an All-County selection last season.

GIRLS PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Courtney Evans and Callie Gillen

Liberty

The Lions' top doubles team was strong all season, especially in postseason play. Evans, a junior, and Gillen, a senior, won the county tournament and then took the district final, beating Jamie Farley and Sarah Leyhe of Francis Scott Key in both. The Liberty pair then won two matches in the state tournament.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Kelly Whitfield

Francis Scott Key

Under Whitfield, the boys team won the county title and the girls squad tied a strong Liberty team for the county crown, both of which were mild surprises. Whitfield's Eagles were undefeated on the boys side (6-0) and swept the doubles matches to upset the Liberty girls. The Eagles girls and Liberty both finished 5-1.
