In his 26 years as head coach at Eastern Tech, Peter Glaudemans has always asked his players to play hard, play for one another and try to make the right decision on the field for the betterment of the team.

The philosophy has always kept the Mavericks competitive, evidenced by the fact they have averaged more than 11 wins per season over the past 20 years.

After leading No. 1 McDonogh to the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship, fourth-year coach Brandon Quaranta has been named the All-Metro co-Coach of the Year.

This season, Eastern Tech once again did all those things and more, ending with a 2-0 win over Howard County power River Hill in the Class 2A state championship game. The win completed a 19-1 season for the No. 5 Mavericks and produced the program’s first state crown.

In winning its last 18 games of the season, Eastern Tech stayed on course with a direct plan: keep organized on defense, send balls to the wings and use speed to get behind defenses to finish scoring chances.

Glaudemans, who is now 245-147-16 with seven region championships, pays close attention to every last detail to give his team any advantage possible. At halftime of the title game, he kept his team outside to stay acclimated to the cold conditions. The Mavericks responded in the second half with the game’s only two goals to claim the milestone win.
