Player of the Year

Molly Stuart

Urbana

Senior

When Urbana High field hockey coach A.J. Stuart gave birth to her daughter Molly, the first words out of her mouth were, “Look at that beautiful field hockey player.”

Blessed with an athletic pedigree, Molly has excelled at the sport throughout her life and is the Gazette’s Player of the Year.

Molly Stuart is the most dominant player in Frederick County. She posted a county-high 56 points (22 goals, 14 assists) during her senior campaign and helped Urbana advance to its first regional final. Last summer, she was selected to the National Futures championships, a regional group of elite players who participated in a five-day tournament at the United States National Training Center in Virginia Beach.

She is being recruited by Kent State University (Ohio), College of the Holy Cross (Mass.) Shippensburg University (Pa.) and The Catholic University of America (D.C.), said her coach/mother.

“She has been a joy to coach because she out-hustles everyone on the field, she rises to the occasion for our big games and manages to find a way to put the ball in the goal,” A.J. Stuart said. “She has tremendous work ethic and, most importantly, is a true team player. As a leader this season, she made my job as a coach easy.

“Sharing my passion for the game with her has been one of my greatest joys over the past four years. I can't wait to watch her compete at the next level.”
