PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Carey was the Patriots' go-to player this season - and she's only a sophomore. The midfielder has the stick skills and instincts to rank her among the top players in the highly competitive Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. She had 44 goals and 23 assists, 59 ground balls and 44 draw controls this season.
Perhaps Carey's best performance was against St. Paul's, the eventual conference tournament champion, when she scored a game-high five goals and assisted the game-winner in overtime.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Under Murrell, the Hawks (16-2) went undefeated in the county en route to their first county title since 1998. Among their wins was a victory over C. Milton Wright, ending the Mustangs' 60-game winning streak against county opponents.
Murrell had to replace several key members from last season's team, including last year's County Player of the Year, Kim Griffin, and four All-County players. North Harford's only two losses this season were against Towson, including one in the Class 3A-2A North regional final.
