Girls Performer of the Year
Katie Harman, River Hill

The senior ended the cross country season on a roll and finally healthy, and that carried over into the indoor season. Harman again came up big in the crucial meets, helping the Hawks to county and regional titles before finishing a close second in the Class 2A state meet. She swept the 1,600 and 3,200 at the Howard County title meet and then again at the Central regional meet. Harman then took the 3,200 at the state meet and took third in the 1,600.

Coach of the Year
Earl Lauer, River Hill

The Hawks had a good group of athletes, led by Harman, and Lauer preached that any points are good points. Versatility is one of the main reasons they won the county and Class 2A Central regional titles before coming in second at the state meet, eight points behind Middletown. The Hawks were strong in distance events, and their best runners would help in relays. River Hill got points in the field events, as well.
