PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Carly Martin

Seton Keough

With pinpoint control and a knack for getting the big out, the junior pitcher led the No. 7 Gators (13-5) to a second-place finish in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference with a 10-4 regular-season mark and a trip to the league title game.

A repeat first-team selection and three-year starter, Martin went 11-5 with one save and an 0.29 ERA, with 159 strikeouts in 113 innings. She also contributed offensively with a .327 batting average, nine runs and eight RBIs.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Sue Winemiller

Western

With only two senior starters back from 2005 and four newcomers inserted in the starting lineup, the Doves considered this a potential rebuilding season at the start. By the end, they were 14-4, with one regional playoff win and a share of the Baltimore City crown with Poly and Digital Harbor.

Winemiller, who is 40-11 in three seasons, emphasized fundamentals and used team-building exercises to bring the group together. "Honestly, it was the kids. We had good chemistry and everyone worked well together. Our goal was to get better every game," Winemiller said.
