The other season we won the regular season title but lost the playoff game. Our best player was nominated for player of the year but lost out to the best player on the team that we beat 3 times including the championship game. The conference coaches voted. Maryland just announced the HS all star team and our best player was named to the first team. The player that beat her out for POTY was an honorable mention. It's nice to know that the other coaches in our conference hate us enough to rob our player of the POTY she deserved. They have good reason to hate us since we completely dominated the conference going 51-5 largely due to our would be POTY.
If it makes you feel any better, when I was living in Maryland I was voted MVP of my soccer team by my teammates, but the coach wasn't happy about that because his kid was on the team. At the end of the year, my trohpy said "Goalie" on it, even though I only played one half of a game at goal, and the coach's kid's trophy said "Top Goal Scorer." Completely hillarious petty stuff.
