McCrea scored four goals last week and helped lead the Cavaliers to three consecutive victories over Good Counsel, Old Mill and Reservoir. A converted midfielder, McCrea found the net in a 3-2 loss to Severna Park on Monday and scored again in a 3-0 victory over Good Counsel two days later to begin a win streak.

McCrea made sure Archbishop Spalding defended its home field in its tournament by unloading goals in back-to-back wins against the Patriots and Gators. McCrea's fourth goal came in the 16th minute to get an early lead on Reservoir.

Honorable Mention

Eric Young, Sr., South River, football

Young has stepped into his role as the Seahawks' top receiver nicely, and he caught seven passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns during a 49-23 victory over Southern on Friday. Young, second to teammate Michael Strange in receptions and yards last year, scored in each of the last three quarters to help South River pull away.

Connor Cox's top target, Young caught a 14-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter and scored from the 5 during the third. Cox and Young connected for a 29-yard score in the fourth quarter to give the Seahawks a 42-23 lead.

Girls

Abbey Meehan, Sr., Broadneck, field hockey

Meehan scored four goals in the Bruins' two wins last week, helping to get wins against Severna Park and Bethesda-Chevy Chase - both pieces to the Class 4A state championship game last season. Meehan scored twice - once in each half - to send Broadneck to a 2-1 win over Severna Park on Tuesday.

Meehan scored two more times to help defeat the Barons, 4-0, and help the Bruins survive a tough, three-game stretch to start the season. Broadneck took a 2-1 loss to South River to start the season.

Honorable Mention

Kara Glynn, Jr., Severna Park, volleyball

Glynn collected 20 kills over a two-match span in wins against Bryn Mawr and Mount de Sales last week to give the Falcons a 2-0 start. Glynn matched teammate Kat Gowland with seven kills to beat the Mawrtians on Tuesday.

Against the Sailors on Thursday, Glynn chipped in a team-high 13 kills to post a 25-15, 25-21, 26-28, 25-20 win.
