The yearly awards are given jointly by the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association (PLA) and the Pennsylvania Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association.

Presenting the awards were Nancy McGoldrick, of the Pennsylvania Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association; and Brooke Fritz, the assistant coach at Radnor and a member of the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association Board of Directors.

The The Linehan Award was accepted by staff writer Ben Skalina at halftime of the Eastern Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association title game at Garnet Valley.

Goldberg was cited for providing comprehensive coverage of scholastic and collegiate lacrosse and for including weekly recognition to top scholar-athletes.
