Players to watch
C. Milton Wright, forward, senior
Using an array of clean stick skills and the ability to win one-on-one breakaways, Aljets had 22 goals and 14 assists to lead the Mustangs into the Class 3A state title game. She returns as one of the area’s premier finishers.
Notre Dame Prep, defender, senior
She was the leader of a dominant defensive group that allowed eight goals last season while recording 11 shutouts as the Blazers finished 18-0 to claim their first Interscholastic Association of Maryland A Conference title. She also frequently turned defense into offense, finishing with seven goals and five assists.
Liberty, goalie, senior
As a junior, Fenner had 127 saves while allowing just 11 goals for a lofty .920 save percentage, leading the Lions to a 13-4 record. The Arcadia commit, who has started since her freshman year, had eight shutouts last season and has led her team to a 29-6 record over the past two years.
Chesapeake-AA, forward, senior
Fleig, an Appalachian State commit, had a dominant junior season, notching 15 goals and 17 assists — the most in Anne Arundel County — to lead the Cougars to their second straight Class 3A state title. Standout stick work and dodging skills give her a commanding presence on the forward line.
Notre Dame Prep, midfielder, senior
The reigning All-Metro Player of the Year finished with 22 goals and 19 assists to lead her team to an 18-0 record, a No. 1 ranking in The Baltimore Sun and its first IAAM A Conference title. Friedman, committed to Wake Forest, earned a spot on the United States women’s national indoor team, and in June became one of 38 players selected for December’s junior national team training camp.
South River, defender, senior
Jamison, a Salisbury commit, provided a dominant defensive presence for the Seahawks last season, leading them to their second straight Class 4A state championship. She helped her team to seven shutouts, and contributed two goals and seven assists.
Archbishop Spalding, forward, senior
A member of the 2018 U.S. under-17 women's national team, Lawn, who is committed to Louisville, finished with 28 goals and seven assists for the Cavaliers last season, including seven game-winners. She dominated on both ends, making the defensive stop, then using her standout elimination skills to drive down the field and finish with a powerful shot.
Westminster, midfielder, senior
After moving from forward to center midfield last season, Maring began to dominate at both ends of the field, finishing with seven goals and 16 assists and leading the Owls to the Carroll County title. She is the engine that makes the county’s top team run.
Broadneck, forward, senior
The Maryland commit finished 2017 with seven goals and eight assists, leading the Bruins to an 8-4-1 mark and a No. 9 area ranking. Munley, who has started since her freshman year, was a force all over the field, serving as her team's inserter on corners, rush/trail on corner defense, top stroker and setup player on attack.
McDonogh, forward, senior
Recovered from a shattered jaw that kept her out for the majority of last season, Whittle, an Ohio commit, will be a powerful force on the Eagles’ front line. She had 15 goals and five assists as a sophomore, and is hungry to again contribute.
