PLAYER OF THE YEAR
This junior led Century to a 19-0 record and the Class 2A-1A state title by scoring a school-record 87 goals and dishing out 41 assists. Among her most noteworthy games, she scored a school-record nine goals against Westminster, seven against Liberty and six in the state final against Pikesville.
Her season total for goals eclipsed the previous mark of 73 held by Kelly Kasper, a second-team All-American this season at Maryland. Her biggest attribute, according to coach Rose Pentz, is consistently being able to advance the ball inside the eight-meter circle, then finding a way to either shoot or pass in heavy traffic.
COACH OF THE YEAR
No other team in Carroll County can begin to approach the level of success enjoyed by Pentz's squad over the first four years of its existence. This season may have been Century's best. The Knights finished 19-0, winning their fourth straight county title and capturing their second Class 2A-1A state crown in three years with a 16-6 win over Pikesville in the finals.
At the start of this spring, Pentz (67-4 career record) faced one of her biggest challenges, having to replace virtually her entire defense. The Knights, however, didn't miss a beat.
