Buford’s Courtney Martin works behind the Johns Creek goal during a match this season.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR: G Juliana Pleck, Sr., Mill Creek

The senior proved to be a formidable last line of a defense for a unit that allowed just over five goals per game in a season in which the Hawks won the Area 7-7A/6A championship and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Class 7A/6A state playoffs. Pleck, who will play college lacrosse at Louisville, was also a Class 7A/6A All-State selection by Georgia’s coaches for the second straight year

COACH OF THE YEAR: Brian Williamson, Mill Creek

Williamson guided the Hawks to a 12-5 record and the Area 7-7A/6A championship, as well as a berth in the Class 7A/6A state quarterfinals in 2021. It caps a coaching career in which he helped build one of Gwinnett County’s top programs, including in 2019, when the Hawks were the first GCPS team to make the state championship match in a state runner-up season
