Player of the Year
Bailey Webster, St. Paul's
Webster, the returning County and All-Metro Player of the Year, led the No. 8 Gators to an 18-2 record and a runner-up spot in the tough Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference this season. Anytime the ball was set to Webster, there was a good chance it wasn't coming back over the net. Webster compiled 487 kills, 21 blocks, 89 digs and 31 aces to lead the Gators. An Under Armour first-team All-American, she will play in Under Armour's National High School All-Star Game on Dec. 21 in Omaha, Neb.
Coach of the Year
Kenny Mills, Mount de Sales
Mills saved his best for last, leading the Catonsville school to its first IAAM A Conference title in his final year in the area. Mills, who is moving to Massachusetts, began as the junior varsity coach in 2000. He moved up to the varsity in 2003 and has compiled a 139-33 career record (varsity and JV), including a 16-3 record this season and the No. 2 ranking in the final Baltimore Sun poll. After losing in the regular season to St. Paul's, the Sailors beat them in the conference final, three games to one.
