2015 Capecod.com Girls’ Lacrosse Coach of the Year: Sarah Knowles, Falmouth Academy: In her school’s first season of MIAA play, Knowles took the Mariners through the regular season without a blemish on their record, cruising to a 14-0 mark and capturing the school’s first-ever Cape & Island League title. Falmouth Academy also hauled in its first ever postseason victory with a win over Martha’s Vineyard in the opening round of the Div. 2 tournament before bowing out to Cohasset and finished at 15-1.

2015 Capecod.com Girls’ Lacrosse Player of the Year: Jane Earley, Falmouth Academy: With an average of 4.38 goals per game, this incredible freshman superstar athlete revealed a brand of hustle and lacrosse acumen usually reserved for upperclassmen. With well over 100 points on the season, Jane Earley finished behind Nantucket’s Olivia Slade for the Cape’s lead in goals scored with 70 but, more importantly, she made her teammates shine before she did and made her Mariners’ team better at every opportunity. The most critical aspect of why Earley was selected as the recipient of our top honor is that her success paved the way for her team’s league title and undefeated regular season. Humble and diminutive, Earley’s athletic skill was only matched by her output and underclassmen or not, she earned every bit of Capecod.com’s first-ever Girls’ Lacrosse Player of the Year honors.

A – Sam Berry, Nauset –  A season that won’t soon be forgotten, Berry led the Atlantic Coast League with an astounding 155 points, scoring 47 goals as the muscle behind the Warriors, as the team scored nearly 300 goals this season.

A – Callie Rogorzenski, Barnstable – A bright spot on an otherwise disappointing season for the Red Raiders, the junior carried the offense against a difficult non-league schedule and netted over 30 goals in all.

A- Caroline McKenna, Sandwich – Another big season from the senior, McKenna turned in a 69-point season with 48 goals, leading the Blue Knights to another Div. 1 quarterfinal appearance and finished her career with 200 goals scored.

A – Rae LaRochelle, Sandwich – With the loss of two big scorers from a season ago, LaRochelle burst onto the scene this season, complimenting McKenna with 58 points and 44 goals.

M – Jane Early, Falmouth Academy – The freshman took the high school lacrosse scene by storm this season, scoring 70 goals and dominating draw controls, leading the Mariners to an undefeated regular season.

M — Casey Sullivan, St. John Paul II – The top goal-scorer this season for the St. John Paul II Lady Lions, Sullivan proved to be the backbone of an up-and-coming program that has made vast strides in its brief tenure of existence.

M — Mikenzie Carbone, St. John Paul II – Pound for pound, Carbone was right at the apex of the St. John Paul II offense this season and proved invaluable in every possible way. The team-leader in assists in a one-two punch combo with teammate and leading scorer Carly Sullivan, Carbone should be at the forefront of all good things to come for the Blue & Gold.

M — Addie Hayman, Falmouth Academy – When Jane Earley wasn’t scoring, Addie Hayman was this season for the nearly impossible to beat Mariners’ laxwomen and she proved critical in the team’s ultimate success.

M – Charlotte Van Voorhis, Falmouth Academy – Few high school athletes possess the tenacity and drive that this superlative overachiever has and it was with her sheer

athleticism that the Mariners gained incredible offensive flexibility from the opening faceoff to the final seconds of the season’s last game against Cohasset in the MIAA tourney.

M – Christie Brake, Falmuth Academy – Overlooked at times this season for her brilliant nose for the ball and rough and tumble brand of play, Christie Brake revealed flashes of brilliance that made one wonder what’s in store come next spring for the Academy girls as they defend their Cape & Islands League crown.

M – Erica Caldwell, Mashpee – The Falcons had no problem scoring goals, and Caldwell was a big reason behind the team’s offensive success. The left-handed shot and tall-frame gave Caldwell a distinct advantage all season long.

M – Olivia Slade, Nantucket – The junior made a serious bid for setting a new state record this season, netting 113 goals, tied for second all-time.

D – Hannah Garside, Nauset – The Warriors attack stole the headlines this season, but Garside turned in a solid season on the defensive end, exceling on groundballs.

D – Lily Barter, Sandwich – The senior took the load of goal Anna Hurley with her stellar play in front of the cage, often tasked with the job of guarding the oppositions’ top attacker.

D – Tori Davis, Falmouth Academy – The Mariners didn’t surrender double-digit goals until their postseason loss to Cohasset and the play of Davis in her own end was a reason why.
