River Hill’s Megan Rosburg was selected Gatorade’s Player of the Year for Maryland, the national sports drink company announced Tuesday. The award recognizes academic excellence, academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the court. 

Rosburg, a 5-foot-9 senior outside hitter, posted 217 kills, 201 digs and 30 service aces for the No. 4 Hawks, who lost to then-No. 1 Centennial in the Class 3A East Region finals in an epic five-set match. She had 15 kills and 14 digs in the match.

An All-Met pick in her junior and senior year, Rosburg spent her first two seasons at Greater Atlanta Christian School before her family moved to Maryland. She was the first freshman to start for the Georgia private school.

Boasting a 3.95 grade point average, Rosburg is a member of the local chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, in addition to River Hill’s Athletic Leadership Council and the Young Life Club.

Rosburg joins Katy Buck (2009; Mount de Sales Academy) and Bailey Webster (2008; St. Paul’s School) as recent winners. Bailey is a sophomore at the University of Texas, and Buck is a freshman at Towson University. Rosburg hasn’t made a decision on college.

Rosburg becomes a finalist for Gatorade’s National Player of the Year award. The winner will be announced later this month.
