The Carroll County Sports Hall of Fame is set to induct the Class of 2019 at its annual ceremony, which is slated for April 26 at Carroll Community College at 6 p.m.

This’s year class includes six members — Jeff Braun, Robbie Green, Becky Trumbo Groves, Jill Krebs, Stacey Krebs Frederick, and Courtney Vaughn.


Braun played football and basketball at Winters Mill (Class of 2008), and went on to play football at West Virginia University. He recorded 127 tackles, seven sacks, four passes defensed, and two fumble recoveries in his time with the Falcons. He earned all-state honors in 2007.

At West Virginia, Braun earned all-Big 12 honorable mention as a senior and was a three-year starter for the Mountaineers.


Green played three sports at Francis Scott Key (Class of 1996) and earned Times Boys Soccer Player of the Year honors in 1995. Green led Carroll soccer in scoring in 1994 and 1995, and also landed on the all-state baseball team in 1995.

He starred in baseball at Frederick Community College (1997-98) and then Catawba (1999-2000) in Salisbury, North Carolina. Green joined Francis Scott Key’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2019, and he was inducted into the FCC Sports Hall of Fame in 2016.

Groves played volleyball, basketball, and lacrosse at Liberty (Class of 2002). She earned back-to-back Times Girls Lacrosse Player of the Year honors in 2001 and 2002 and finished with 249 goals, at the time the most in Carroll history.

She headed to Towson and built a standout career with the Tigers — she was the university’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2006, and landed on the Colonial Athletic Association’s Silver Anniversary Team. In 2018, Groves entered the Towson Athletics Hall of Fame.

Krebs ran cross country and track at South Carroll (Class of 1998) and McDaniel College. Krebs was a two-time county champion in cross country, a three-time Times first-team all-county pick, and a two-time Times Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year.

Krebs was Maryland’s NCAA Woman of the Year in 2002 after earning All-America status at McDaniel in 1999 and 2000.

Frederick was a three-sport athlete at Liberty (Class of 2005) and starred in volleyball — she earned Times Player of the Year in 2004 and led the Lions to a state championship. Frederick played college volleyball at Salisbury and was a two-time Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Year (2007, 2008).

Vaughn coached girls lacrosse at Liberty (1988-2002) and Winters Mill (2003-16), and finished with 339 career wins. Liberty won 12 county titles and reached the state finals four times under Vaughn. She’s a member of Liberty’s Athletics Hall of Fame.


Winters Mill won four county crowns with Vaughn as its coach, but the Falcons also claimed four state championships in a span of six seasons.
