Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five




Samantha Schrum

St. Mary's

A talented scorer when she first arrived from Old Mill after her freshman year, Schrum quickly developed into a fine all-around player who found different ways to make a positive impact for the Saints. The senior midfielder scored a team-high 74 goals, added 29 assists and collected 67 ground balls to be named the team's Most Valuable Player and an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference All-Star.

In her three seasons at St. Mary's, Schrum totaled 197 goals and 74 assists. She will play lacrosse at Johns Hopkins next spring.


Carin Peterson

Severna Park

With a veteran defense led by senior goalie Kelsey Ferris, it was clear where the Falcons' strength was at the start of the season. Peterson's top priority was getting the team's young attack up to speed, and by season's end - with some ups and downs along the way - that was the case.

The Falcons (17-4) reached the Class 4A-3A state title game - capturing the East regional by avenging two losses to county rival Broadneck. Peterson has guided the program to six state titles and six county championships in her 18 seasons.
