The county high schools are undergoing another league change for theupcoming sports seasons.
Queen Anne's will join the 12 public schools to form one league, doing away with the 3A-2A League that shrankto three teams last year after Andover and Brooklyn Park merged to form North County.
The teams will split into two divisions during the basketball, soccer, lacrosse, baseball and softball seasons, according to size.
The six largest -- Old Mill, Glen Burnie, Meade, Severna Park, Annapolis and Chesapeake -- will be housed in the Friendship Division. The seven remaining schools -- Arundel, North County, Broadneck, South River, Northeast, Southern and Queen Anne's -- will compete in the Bay Division.
Division champions will be determined at season's end.
Paul Rusko, the retiring county coordinator of physical education and athletics, said a single county champion will be crowned in tennis, volleyball, wrestling and field hockey.
