All-Howard County: Girls soccer

Girls Player of the Year
Kristina Jackson, Wilde Lake

Despite seeing her senior season end in the latter stages with a knee injury, Jackson made her mark as the county's most complete player. The team captain and four-year standout dropped back to a defensive midfield position to solidify the middle of the field with tireless and crafty play. Jackson, who finished with one goal and three assists after a 10-goal, seven-assist junior season playing closer to the final third, was always around the ball and able to carry it forward or effectively distribute passes to set up teammates. Cornell ranks at the top of her college list, as she plans to play at the next level.

Girls Coach of the Year
Phil Webster, Wilde Lake

The first-year coach led the Wildecats to a 12-4 season that included the Howard County championship with a 2-1 win over Class 2A state champ River Hill. Despite losing his top playmaking midfielder late in the season to a knee injury, Webster kept the team confident.
