Player of the Year

Monica Fischer


Fast, skilled and possessing a fierce determination to get to the goal, the junior forward enjoyed a breakout season to lead the Cougars to the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship and a 16-1-1 record. Their only loss came against Wilde Lake, 1-0, in the regional championship game.

Despite constant attention from opposing defenses, Fischer scored 25 goals and added nine assists, recording a goal or assist in 14 of the team's 18 games.

Fischer had uncanny game sense, knowing when to challenge defenders and score on her own or pass to open teammates when too much attention was focused on her.

Fischer had a four-goal game against North East-Cecil and three-goal efforts against Reservoir, Dulaney, Mercy and Meade. She also scored the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over Northeast in the regional semifinals.


Alyson Cammann


An assistant coach last year, Cammann took over as head coach this fall and guided the Cougars to their first Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship and a 16-1-1 season that ended with a 1-0 loss to Wilde Lake in the regional final.

Cammann got the most out of a strong returning group. Junior forward Monica Fischer's 25-goal, nine-assist season led the offense, and the defense was strong collectively in surrendering just 12 goals in 18 games.

A 2002 graduate of Binghamton (N.Y.) University, where she was a standout soccer and lacrosse player, Cammann emphasized an effective short passing game that helped the Cougars keep the ball.
