Best High School Girls’ Coach

Former McDonogh and Maryland lacrosse star Taylor Cummings took over as the head coach at McDonogh ahead of the 2019 season.

The Eagles’ 198-game winning streak came to an end with a loss to Notre Dame Prep in the 2018 IAAM A Conference championship game, but Cummings wasted no time starting a streak of her own. The three-time Tewaaraton Award winner led the Eagles to 21-0 record in 2019, including a come-from-behind 5-4 win against St. Paul’s in the conference title game.
