The Blazers may be only a consistent finisher away from their third Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title in four years.

2. Roland Park

3. Mount Hebron

Last season: 18-0, No. 1

Defense rules for the defending Anne Arundel county champs, who beat Broadneck twice before falling in the regional championship.

The marquee players are gone, but an experienced cast remains to build on an A Conference runner-up finish.

A narrow miss in the state Class 4A-3A title game will motivate Harford County's best, one of the area's fastest rising teams.

Jess Adam leads a core of veteran players who should have the Admirals right in the thick of the A Conference race.
