Runner of the Year

Julius Coleman, Mervo

Renowned for his accomplishments on a track last year, Coleman proved that he could be just as successful on grass, in mud and on hills. The senior captured his first Baltimore City championship, winning in 16 minutes, 47 seconds.

Coleman followed up that victory by finishing second at the Class 3A North region meet. And despite not having run at Hereford High's punishing course at least once this fall, Coleman placed 11th at the state championships.

Coach of the Year

Jack Peach, Mt. St. Joseph

When discussing possible contenders for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association crown before the start of the season, the Gaels are always mentioned. And even though the Gaels ended up finishing third at the MIAA championships, Peach and his charges showed that they will be a team to be reckoned with in the near future.

With only two seniors among its top seven varsity runners and continued motivation from Peach, Mount St. Joseph could return to the top of the MIAA next season.
