de­fen­sive pres­ence for the Sabres. Blair Goodrich So., Kent Is­land Goodrich of­ten started at mid­field and shifted through­out the field the rest of the game, a su­perb ath­lete with the abil­ity to cover all cor­ners with aplomb.

She led the Bucs with 59 draw con­trols, while also rou­tinely stuff­ing the stat sheets to the tune of 33 goals, 13 as­sists, 54 ground­balls, 16 caused turnovers and 10 take­aways. Goodrich plays club ball for Mary­land United. * ** At­tack Josephine Smith

Sr., Gun­ston Smith was a three-year mem­ber of the ES­IAC and Cap­i­tal Area Lacrosse League all-con­fer­ence teams, co­in­cid­ing with her three years as the pri­mary fin­isher for the Herons var­sity unit.

Smith capped her se­nior sea­son with 38 goals, 28 as­sists. 39 ground­balls, eight caused turnovers and 15 take­aways. She will be at­tend­ing St. Vin­cent Col­lege in western Penn­syl­va­nia this fall.

Kylie Tu­low­itzky So., Queen Anne’s Much of the Lions’ fu­ture suc­cess will hinge on the con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment of Ru­la­paugh and Tu­low­itzky, who scored 35 goals, passed for 10 as­sists and picked up 32 ground­balls in her sec­ond year with the var­sity.

The Lady Blue Crabs club player is a can­di­date to make the big­gest leap in 2019 with added re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

Cam­ryn Pep­per So., North Caro­line The do-ev­ery­thing Pep­per was at the fore­front of the Bull­dogs’ emer­gence from Bay­side also-rans to com­pet­ing with peren­nial con­tenders. Pep­per net­ted 25 goals, 21 as­sists and 23 ground­balls, and should only im­prove her per­for­mance and pro­file in 2019 given North Caro­line’s rapid rise in the con­fer­ence.

De­fense Syd­ney Holtzner Sr., Kent Is­land Tasked with check­ing the other team’s top fin­isher in vir­tu­ally ev­ery game, Holtzner was also a ball-hawk through­out the sea­son with 38 ground­balls, 18 caused turnovers and eight take­aways.

The Buc­ca­neers’ team cap­tain is also a Mary­land United alum, and will at­tend Flor­ida South­ern be­gin­ning this fall. Myia Jeter So., Eas­ton Ar­guably the best de­fender in the Bay­side Con­fer­ence, Jeter also bol­sters her play with im­pec­ca­ble stick work when car­ry­ing the ball, and has the abil­ity to shift to mid­field when called to duty. The Lady Blue Crabs mem­ber is al­ready draw­ing at­ten­tion from nu­mer­ous Di­vi­sion I schools, and should be a vir­tual lock for the first-team All-Mid-Shore team for the re­main­der of her high school ca­reer.

Grace Swee­tak Jr., Queen Anne’s The leader of a Queen Anne’s de­fense that found its stride later in the sea­son, The Ch­e­sa­peake Club Lacrosse mem­ber has ver­bally com­mit­ted to Rollins (Fla.) Col­lege.

Goalie Kyleigh Hes­sian Sr., Kent Is­land The Buc­ca­neers al­lowed more than 10 goals to only one Bay­side Con­fer­ence pro­gram in 2018, and Hes­sian, as the fi­nal line of de­fense, was in­stru­men­tal in that dom­i­nance. Voted as the team MVP on de­fense by Kent Is­land, Hes­sian ex­celled on eight-me­ter shots and made 132 saves, in­clud­ing a com­bined 27 from the 2A East Sec­tion II fi­nal and on­ward.

Hes­sian, an­other dec­o­rated Mary­land United mem­ber, will be at­tend­ing Se­ton Hall Univer­sity be­gin­ning this fall.
