Boys Runner of the Year

Will Meadows, Gilman

Meadows was a freshman this season, but he ran like a veteran. He gave the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association a good look at what might be coming over the next three seasons. He finished seventh in the MIAA championship meet, playing a big role in helping Gilman take fourth place. Three days later, he took 34th in the private schools state meet.

Coach of the Year

Joe Duncan, Gilman

Duncan did a good job helping a young Greyhounds team come together and take fourth place in the MIAA A Conference title meet. Under Duncan, who has 20 years of coaching experience and ran at Dartmouth in the late 1970s, Gilman found success in what seemed to be a rebuilding year.
