Player of the Year

Sarah Cole

Bryn Mawr

A frustrating player to defend, the senior forward had a pocketful of tricks to foil the opposition. Cole was one of few high school players able to control the ball while running downfield at top speed. She could also change direction on a dime and deceive defenders with deft stickwork and last-second maneuvers.

Coach of the Year

Stacey Bilenki

Institute of Notre Dame

In August, Bilenki was hoping for a .500 season after graduating 10 seniors, but her expectations soon grew. A few newcomers filled key positions and Bilenki juggled girls at other positions until she found the combination that took the Indians to a 16-3 record and the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland C Conference championship. "We didn't have one standout player. We had a really solid 11 starters who really came together as a team and clicked," she said.
