Elizabeth Tauber, John Carroll, juniorTauber almost had a perfect season this fall.
She won her second straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship, helping John Carroll take second place overall.
She then won the private schools state meet one week later. All that followed first-place finishes at the Peter Geraghty and Bobcat invitational and second-place efforts at the Bull Run Invitational and a meet at William & Mary in Virginia.
Tauber was perfect in IAAM dual meets for the second straight season and beat Century's Maura Linde - a public school state champion and an All-Metro pick - twice in three tough races.
