GIRLS SOCCER

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Gigi Mangione

McDonogh

Mangione was the catalyst for a McDonogh team that reached the Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference final. The junior, who played midfielder and forward for the Eagles, scored 13 goals and had nine assists. She netted an overtime game-winner against St. Vincent Pallotti in the teams' first meeting and registered two goals and an assist in a come-from-behind victory over Notre Dame Prep this season. The versatile Mangione was a Maryland Association of Coaches of Soccer first-team selection and led McDonogh to a 16-5-2 record and a No. 3 final ranking.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Kim Williams

Eastern Tech

Coming into this season with just one senior on her roster, Williams got her players to grow up fast. By the end of the season, her team showed maturity, advancing to the Class 2A state championship game. Led by senior defender Madison Bell and three juniors in midfielder Rachel Tregesor and forwards Amber Womack and Brittany Rhodes, the No. 10 Mavericks also captured the Baltimore County crown and finished 18-3-1. In five seasons with the team, Williams has compiled a 65-15-4 record.

BOYS SOCCER

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Chris Agorsor

McDonogh

The senior, who has attended McDonogh for three years but is graduating early to continue his soccer career, missed 3 1/2 weeks because of a hip flexor but still recorded 24 goals and eight assists, leading No. 1 McDonogh to the MIAA A Conference championship. The multi-talented forward, who is a focal point on the American Under-20 national team, has a full scholarship offer from Virginia and contract offers from professional soccer clubs. Agorsor is a Maryland Association of Coaches of Soccer first-team selection, the Maryland State Player of the Year for the second year in a row and a National Soccer Coaches Association of America Adidas All-American.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Dan Skelton

Perry Hall

Skelton took the Gators from a .500 program last season to a 17-2-3 record in his first year as head coach. No. 4 Perry Hall, which lost half its starters from last season, was county co-champion with Franklin and got to the state final with a team effort. The Gators' title run included three shutouts, thanks in large part to Maryland Association of Coaches of Soccer first-team defender Josh Spivey and center midfielder Matt Swiderski (16 goals, six assists).
