MAGGIE BILL, Long Island Player of the Year
St. Anthony's, Midfielder, Sr.
Bill led St. Anthony's to a No. 2 national ranking. A three-time All-American, she had 83 points, 77 draw controls, 71 ground balls and 52 caused turnovers as the Friars captured a sixth consecutive CHSAA Class AA title. The two-sport superstar will play lacrosse and soccer at University of North Carolina. Both teams are defending national champions, by the way. |

NADINE HADNAGY, Nassau Player of the Year
Farmingdale, Midfielder, Sr.
Hadnagy, headed to Maryland, combined stellar defense with 88 points and clutch play. She scored the winner in the L.I. final and racked up 12 points in the state tournament. Her three goals, two assists and four forced turnovers in the state final secured tournament MVP honors and Farmingdale's first Class A state crown since 2010. |

CAROLINE FITZGERALD, Suffolk Player of the Year
Mount Sinai, Midfielder, Sr.
She earned All-America honors three times, and it wasn't for posting gaudy stats. The midfielder had 45 points but did enough little things, and did them so well, she stood out in each game. Nicknamed "The Mailman" by Mustangs coach Al Bertolone, Fitzgerald delivered even in the heavy rain at the state tournament for the program's first state championship. |

LINDA MARIE ATTANASIO
Garden City, Defender, Sr.
The All-American was a three-year starter for a Trojans team that won seven consecutive state titles before this season. Attanasio had 28 draw controls, 20 ground balls and five interceptions, anchoring a defense that held opponents to 7.6 goals per game en route to the Nassau Class B final. She will play at Dartmouth. |

KIM COUGHLAN
St. Anthony's, Defender, Sr.
The Friars allowed only 5.8 goals per game against arguably the toughest non-league schedule in the country. At the center of that defensive dominance was Coughlan, a Michigan-bound star who had 49 caused turnovers, 32 pass deflections and 30 ground balls. |

CYNTHIA DEL CORE
Bay Shore, Midfielder, Sr.
The USC-bound senior stepped up in the post-season, scoring seven goals in the Suffolk final, and delivering the tying goal and go-ahead assist in the semifinal. The All-American's leadership was key to Bay Shore's run and her on-the-field contributions - 59 goals and 29 assists - didn't hurt, either. |

CORTNEY FORTUNATO
Northport, Midfielder/Attack, Sr.
Fortunato tied for the Suffolk lead with 82 goals and had 118 points overall, leading Northport to the Suffolk Class A semifinals. The dynamic three-time All-American did that despite being face-guarded and double-teamed by nearly every opponent. Fortunato will head to Notre Dame having won a state title (2011) and a world championship as a member of Team USA's Under-19 squad. |

JULIA GLYNN
Manhasset, Midfielder, Jr.
She already has earned All-America honors twice, and done it in different ways. As a sophomore, Glynn proved to be a standout scorer. This season, out of necessity, the junior was utilized more as a do-it-all midfielder. Glynn had 51 points, though her impact was far greater on the field than in box scores. Her strong defense, control of the midfield and transition play led the Indians the LI Class B title and a No. 6 national ranking. |

COLLEEN LOVETT
Wantagh, Attack, Sr.
The two-time All-American, one of Long Island's most prolific scorers for three years, capped a brilliant career by leading the Warriors to the Nassau Class B semifinals. The Georgetown-bound star led all public school players with 124 points (55 assists). Lovett's 10 assists in the quarterfinals were the second highest single-game total in state history. |

EMILY MARKHAM
Manhasset, Defender, Sr.
With an athletic 5-11 frame, stellar technique and keen instincts, she was a shut-down defender for a team that allowed only seven goals per game. Markham, headed to Yale, was key in slowing Garden City's offense in the county final and she contained Kristin Anderson, Eastport-South Manor's 6-2 attack, as the Indians earned their first L.I. title since 2005. |

KAITLYN MONTALBANO
St. John the Baptist, Midfielder, Jr.
The All-American, along with star teammate Morgan Jaycox, earned the nickname "The Circus" for their array of slick moves and show-stopping trick shots and passes. Montalbano was as productive as she was flashy, scoring 129 points (80 goals) in leading the Cougars to their first appearance in the CHSAA Class AA final. |

COURTNEY MURPHY
Floyd, Midfielder, Sr.
She tied for tops in Suffolk with 82 goals and proved a propelling force, having a hand in 98 of her team's 159 goals. Murphy also earned academic All-America honors. The Stony Brook-bound star finished her high school career with a career-high 14 points - nine goals and five assists. |

RACHAEL RAMIREZ
Lindenhurst, Goalie, Sr.
The only Long Island goalie named to the All-American team this year, Ramirez made 141 saves with an impressive .548 save percentage. Routinely tested and with a dominating presence in the cage, the 5-9 stopper proved difficult to solve even on free position attempts and point-blank shots. Ramirez was also an All-Long Island volleyball star. |

REBECCA TOOKER
Eastport-South Manor, Defender, Jr.
The All-American anchored a defense that held opponents to 5.5 goals per game and, in the last two seasons, has helped the Sharks capture their first two Suffolk Class B titles. Routinely pitted against some of the best offensive forces in Division II, she had 48 draws, 46 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers. |

AL BERTOLONE, Suffolk Coach of the Year Mount

AL BERTOLONE, Suffolk Coach of the Year
Mount Sinai
In his first year as head coach, Bertolone piloted the Mustangs to a 20-0 season and their first state title. His calming influence, along with in-game adjustments, sparked comebacks in the Long Island championship and state final. |

TRACY WIENER, Nassau Coach of the Year
Farmingdale
In what was expected to be a rebuilding year, the co-coaches guided Farmingdale (16-3) through a grueling Conference I schedule - a gauntlet that included several comebacks and close victories - and led the Dalers to their first state Class A championship since 2010. |
