June 8, 2017
PressBox's high school lacrosse email by Todd Karpovich brings you all the best in local lacrosse -- boys and girls, private and public schools, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Check it out, pass it on and tell us what you think.


PressBox/PNC Lacrosse Spotlight Girls Player of the Year

Maddie Jenner, McDonogh

Jenner was the most dominant player for the nation's most powerful girls' lacrosse program. The junior singlehandedly took over games and frustrated opponents with her skills. This season, Jenner had 165 draw controls in 22 games. She also scored 44 goals on 73 shots and had four assists.

Jenner, who has competed in the Under Armour Underclass Tournament, was able to accumulate those stats despite not playing in the second half of many games -- when the starters gave way to the reserve players because the Eagles had significant leads. McDonogh won its ninth consecutive Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland "A" conference title May 13 against Notre Dame Prep. The Eagles finished the season 22-0, extending their national record winning streak to 177 games.

"She improved immensely this year as an offensive player recording the second-most goals on the team," McDonogh head coach Chris Robinson said. "In the championship game, we won 20-23 draws between Maddie and her midfield teammates who scooped up anything that she did not get herself."

Robinson said Jenner was a significant factor in McDonogh's 12-9 win.

Jenner will attend Duke.

PressBox/PNC Lacrosse Spotlight Boys Player of the Year

Jacob Kelly, Calvert Hall

The junior led Calvert Hall to its first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association "A" conference title since 2012 and third overall. The Cardinals (17-2) capped a stellar season with a 12-6 victory against defending champion McDonogh in the title game at Johns Hopkins May 25. Kelly was the force behind Calvert Hall's impressive run, finishing the season with 47 goals and 44 assists for 91 points.

"Jacob does it all for us," said Calvert Hall head coach Bryan Kelly, who is Jacob's father. "He led the team in goals, assists and overall points. He led the team in caused turnovers on the ride. He is a complete player. He is very efficient. He is one of the smartest players to go through Calvert Hall. He is the quarterback of our offense."

Jacob Kelly is a three-year varsity player and was a captain this past season. He is also a member of the FCA Maryland Club and Under Armour underclassman teams, and he received the C. Markland Kelly Award as the top player among private schools in the North region of Maryland.

"Jacob is very deserving of this honor," Calvert Hall offensive coordinator Dave Huntley said. "He is another coach on the field. He always made the right play at the right time."

Kelly has committed to North Carolina.
