The Baltimore Sun

Performer of Year

Jessica Tongue


The junior won the Class 3A state championship in the 100 meters and took second in the 200. A second-team All-Metro pick last season, she has become one of the state's top sprinters, regardless of classification.

Coach of the Year

Brian Brown


Under Brown, the Panthers were strong in big meets. Jessica Tongue and Torrie Saunders led the way, but Annapolis consistently received points from other places, too. The Panthers finished second to top-ranked Meade in the county title meet, fourth in the regional and fifth in the Class 3A state meet.
