All-Harford County Girls Cross Country

Erika Stasakova
John Carroll

The junior played a major role in John Carroll getting past defending champion Seton Keough to win the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. Stasakova became the Patriots' top runner and won the championship race, beating out teammate Nicole Clarke.

Stasakova did nearly as well in the private schools state championship run, taking second in that race in a tough field.

Rob Torres
John Carroll

Torres helped a young John Carroll team have little difficulty moving to a tough schedule. The Patriots moved up to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference this year and rolled to the championship after taking the B Conference title last fall.

With the Patriots facing tough competition all season, Torres used a roster filled with underclassmen to achieve success. Several days after capturing the IAAM team title, the Patriots finished third in the state private schools meet.
