Player of the Year

Adam VanLeeuwen, Westminster

VanLeeuwen was the county's best shut-down defender, helping Westminster finish 15-1 and hold opponents to under three goals a game.

The three-year starter always covered the opposing team's top attackman, and most often left him walking away shaking his head.

VanLeeuwen will continue his career at Mount St. Mary's.

Coach of the Year

Jim Peters, Westminster

Peters' Owls allowed an average of just 2.9 goals in starting the season 15-0, six times holding opponents to a goal or less.

That defense helped Westminster capture Carroll County, Monocacy Valley Athletic League Eastern Division and Class 4A-3A North titles, and earn a trip to the state semifinals.

In his 24 years at the helm, Peters has compiled a 188-135 mark, including a 61-4 record over the past four seasons.
