Performer of the Year
Alese Forbes Northwestern
Forbes found her way under the guidance of former Western coach Jerry Molyneaux, as she broke through with a huge effort in the Class 2A state championship meet. The junior won the 100 (12.27 seconds) and 400 (56.97) and finished second in the 200.
Her efforts gave Northwestern all of its 28 points and allowed the Wildcats to finish sixth in the state. Forbes figures to be the cornerstorne for the growing Wildcats program under Molyneaux.
Coach of the Year Alicia Williams Western
Taking over for any coach often isn't easy, but it's especially tough when following someone as accomplished as Jerry Molyneaux. That's what Williams, a former track athlete at Western under Molyneaux, had to do when he moved to Northwestern last fall after nearly two decades at Western.
Williams, however, kept everything moving smoothly with the program. The Doves again won the Baltimore City championship and then finished fourth in Class 3A with 46 points, 12 points behind first-place Westlake. Williams now is working on making it her program. The team
