Mill Creek’s Sara Grieco (5) shoots at the net against Roswell during the state playoffs Thursday at Mill Creek.

The Gwinnett Lacrosse League recently honored the best from the 2019 high school season at its annual awards banquet.

Mill Creek earned six of the top individual awards, including a sweep of head coach of the year honors by Brian Williamson (girls) and Alan Tallman (boys).

The Hawks’ Sara Grieco was the girls attack player of the year, and teammate Lyndsey Lewis was midfielder of the year. Two Mill Creek boys also took top honors — Willie Grieco as attack player of the year and Coleman Braun as FOGO player of the year.

Buford’s Taylor Lewis was the boys’ goalie of the year and teammates Mitchell Whalen shared defensive player of the year honors with Duluth’s Luke McKernan.

The other top awards went to North Gwinnett’s Justin Wambold as boys long stick midfielder of the year, Greater Atlanta Christian’s Josh Rose was boys midfielder of the year, Wesleyan’s Tabitha Conrad as girls defender of the year and Peachtree Ridge’s Breanna Diaz as girls goalie of the year.

In addition, the assistant coaches of the year were Mike Hannon of Collins Hill for the boys, and Wandi and Greg Gaylen of Archer for the girls.

The Girls Lacrosse Person of the Year Award went to Kurt Feldhaus and the Boys Lacrosse Person of the Year Award went to Jim Braun.
