COACH OF THE YEAR
Sam Plank, Stone Bridge (Ashburn)
One way or another, the Bulldogs knew this was going to be Plank’s 15th and final season with the program he helped build from scratch. Stone Bridge sent him out a champion by beating Falls Church Marshall 9-4 in the Class 5A state title game and claiming the program’s first state crown. Plank finishes his Stone Bridge career with a record of 246-107-1. He will take over at Riverside High, a new school in Lansdowne, next season.
