Logan Covey put together another solid spring season playing goalie for Westminster’s boys lacrosse team.

Covey totaled 187 saves, the most by a Carroll public school goalie, and his 63.8 save percentage was second best in the county. Covey led the Owls to a 19-0 record and their second straight Class 3A state championship.

The two-time Times first-team all-county selection recently added another individual accomplishment — Covey earned first-team all-state honors from the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association. The MSLCA chose 16 players on its first team.

Covey, an incoming senior was one of two goalies, and the lone public-school player to make the cut. He’s verbally committed to Marist College for lacrosse.

Eldersburg resident Bryson Shaw (Bullis School) also made the all-state first team at midfield. Shaw had 38 goals and 28 assists in the spring, and helped the Bulldogs go 21-3 and win a national tournament in Washington DC, in May. He’s headed to Ohio State University for football.

The MLCSA’s public school all-state team features five players from Carroll County — Covey is joined by Westminster teammates and recent grads Chase Buckwalter, Bubba Love, and Christian Etchison, along with Century’s Alex Kristian.

Buckwalter, a midfielder, was second in Carroll this season with 77 points (52 goals, 25 assists). Love, the Times Player of the Year, had 104 points (60, 44) on attack, and Etchison finished with 45 (28, 17) form his midfield spot.

Buckwalter is headed to Florida Tech and Love to Frostburg, each for lacrosse, and Etchison to Shepherd for football.

Kristian, a long-stick midfielder/defenseman and a Loyola commit, helped the Knights win a Class 2A West Region title this season. The incoming senior anchored a defense that allowed a mere 4.9 goals per game. He’s a three-time Times first-team all-county choice.

Girls get High School Awards from US Lacrosse

Carroll had more representation from U.S. Lacrosse, which recently unveiled its Girls High School Awards — all-Academic and all-American.

South Carroll’s Paige Abbott, an incoming senior, joined recent Westminster grads Hannah Dintino and Anna Ruby as all-Academic picks for the Western Maryland region.

Abbott, a midfielder, finished with 41 goals and eight assists, and helped the Cavaliers win the 2A state title.

Dintino led the county in scoring this past season with 101 points (71 goals, 30 assists), while fellow midfielder Ruby had 70 points (45, 25). Dintino and Ruby guided the Owls to their second consecutive 3A state championship.

Dintino joined SCs Riley Evans, and Century’s Grace Bruce and Demma Hall, as all-America selections at midfield.

Evans, the Times Player of the Year, finished the spring with 60 goals and seven assists. She added 85 draw controls for the Cavs.

Hall was second in the county with 97 points (48, 49), and Bruce had 47 (41, six) for the Knights.
