Coach of the Year

Capital Gazette:

Coach of the Year: Cliff Rickard, Annapolis Area Christian School
Rickard arrived on the scene during the pandemic and began to prepare for the future, training his players outdoors on grass. All that effort led to an AACS volleyball season unlike any other. The Eagles delivered the first unbeaten regular season in program history, going 12-0, including important wins over rivals Archbishop Spalding and St. Mary’s.
AACS went 10-0 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference during the regular season.The second-year coach, who treated his practices and games with an abundantly positive attitude, tasked his players with performing complicated moves no other opponents were doing and that separated AACS from the pack. His sophomores that had maybe five varsity games under their belts before this season posted numbers that rivaled the seniors.The Eagles swept 11 of 15 non-tournament opponents.
One pressure-filled game and an ill-timed injury to a top player can doom a team, as it did the Eagles in the IAAM B Conference semifinals against St. Mary’s. However, that one loss would not detract from AACS’ historic season.
Three Eagles made All-County first or second team in addition to the IAAM’s All-Conference team.
First Team Malani Martin, AACS, sophomore, outside hitter:40 aces, 28 digs, 15 blocks, 84 kills, 10 assists
Avery Walker, AACS, senior, outside hitter:45 aces, 34 digs, 5 blocks, 66 kills, 6 assists
