Player of the Year: Sarah Matz, Bryn Mawr
The No. 9 Mawrtians lost six games this season -- four while Matz was briefly sidelined with an injury. When she was in the lineup, the senior midfielder was their go-to player as they reached the IAAM A Conference semifinals. In a balanced attack, Matz finished with 29 goals and four assists, but she was also a factor all over the field. She won 42 draws and 40 ground balls and caused eight turnovers. Matz, who is headed for Maryland, was selected for the Under Armour All-America Game on June 27 at Towson University.
Coach of the Year: Tara Hardiman, Friends
In her second season with the Quakers, Hardiman, a Bryn Mawr graduate who played at Princeton, guided them to an unbeaten regular season in the IAAM B Conference. They came within one goal of a perfect B Conference season as they fell to Park, 12-11, in the tournament finale. Hardiman kept a senior-laden team on an even keel and taught more patience on offense, a plan that still allowed them to strike in transition but also gave them a better settled offense. Her Quakers also played well against three A Conference teams.
