Performer of the Year

Kellie Christian Catonsville

After a strong sophomore year, Christian was even better this winter. She swept the 300 and 500 at the county meet and then went on to win the 300 at both the Class 3A Central regional and state meets.

The junior scored almost half of Catonsville's points at the county meet and helped the Comets make some noise at the regional and state competitions.

Coach of the Year

Sam Bowen Hereford

The Bulls had to deal with the loss of top runner Kristen Malloy, who moved out of town, but Bowen kept focused throughout the winter.

Hereford turned in a strong performance to win the county title meet just days after Malloy left. The Bulls went on to finish third in the Class 3A Central regional meet and then fourth in the state.
