Game after game this season, the No. 1 Chesapeake-Anne Arundel softball team has come to play with no secrets. The Cougars always play fundamentally sound defense, get timely hits and simply dare opponents to try to solve All-Metro standout pitcher Megan Hyson. In Wednesday's District V championship game against No. 6 Howard, the familiar recipe stood its ground again for the Cougars. Hyson was overwhelming, striking out 15 Lions while yielding just two hits, and the Anne Arundel County champion Cougars scratched across single runs in the third, fifth and sixth innings to claim a 3-0 win over their Howard County counterparts at Bachman Sports Complex in Glen Burnie.

Boys lacrosse Player of the Year Jon Selfridge Glenelg It was tough to top last season for Selfridge, as the Lynchburg-bound goalie's team won the Class 3A-2A state championship and he was a second-team All-Metro selection. But the senior played even better this year, leading his team to an undefeated season (18-0) and the Class 2A-1A championship. He was a second-team All-Metro selection again this year, compiling 169 saves while stopping 69 percent of shots. "You would think a kid that wins second-team All-Metro and wins a state championship would sit back and rest," Glenelg coach Josh Hatmaker said.

Player of the year Christine Nairn Arch. Spalding, midfielder No player in the area was more dangerous with the ball than Nairn, who completed a stellar four-year career with 27 goals and 13 assists in her senior season. Nairn's goals could come from anywhere in the Cavaliers' offensive third, and she was equally adept at feathering passes to set up teammates. Her four-year contributions helped put the Spalding program on the map in the strong Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference, as the Cavaliers reached the title game in 2005, captured their first championship last season and reached the semifinals this fall.
