It was a banner year for county high schools.

In fact, the five county high schools have more banners -- and trophies -- after winningfive state titles and 17 regional crowns in 1991.

Only four school systems in the state -- all with more high schools -- earned more state titles than the Carroll contingent. Howard led the way with 13 titles (including eight this past fall), Prince George's county had 12 titles and a co-championship, Anne Arundel Countyteams brought home nine titles and a co-championship and Frederick County nabbed six crowns.

Carroll's five titles tied Montgomery andBaltimore County for fifth in the state.

Leading the way for Carroll was field hockey, where Westminster and South Carroll won state and region titles and Francis Scott Key won a region crown. Liberty advanced to the region finals before losing to eventual state champion Middletown of Frederick County.

South Carroll stunned Bethesda-Chevy Chase of Montgomery County, 1-0, in the state Class 3A title game.B-CC had won the Class 4A title the previous year and had not given up a goal in 15 games before meeting the Cavaliers.

The Barons also were 56-2-2 over a five-year span.

Westminster, always one of the top Class 4A teams in the state, finally copped the state title that had eluded the Owls since 1985 with a 1-0 victory over perennial power Severna Park of Anne Arundel County.

County track teams were on the mark, too. Key won the boys Class 1A state crown and was joinedby Westminster girls and boys teams as region champs.

North Carroll continued to be among the best in the state in softball, winning the Class 3A title after a region crown. Key also won a region title.

Perhaps most noteworthy were some teams that didn't win state titles, but made some strong inroads at the region level.

Liberty's boys and North Carroll's girls became the first county teams in five years to win region soccer titles, while South Carroll's boys and NorthCarroll's girls won their regions in lacrosse.

Other region winners included the Key and Westminster boys cross country teams, the Liberty volleyball team, the South Carroll baseball squad and the North Carroll wrestlers.
