Player of the Year

David Walters, River Hill

He produced the best overall season of any county player, contributing at the plate, on the mound and at shortstop.

Even though the Hawks lost four starters for various reasons in the middle of the season, he still was able to lead his team within one game of the county title.

The senior batted .507 with 10 doubles, two triples, three home runs, 28 runs and 24 RBIs. He also was 6-2 with a 1.72 ERA. Walters will play next year at Spartanburg Methodist in South Carolina.

Coach of the Year

David Jackson, Wilde Lake

Jackson's team did what no other Wilde Lake baseball team could do in the school's 34-year history. It won a regional championship and made it to the state final.

Not much was expected from Wilde Lake this season, and with a 4-16 record entering the 3A playoffs, its chances of winning a regional title seemed remote.

But Jackson, an emergency coach, led the Wildecats on a five-game playoff run.
