Pikesville (15-0) topped visiting Dulaney, 9-2, in the Baltimore County badminton championship yesterday.

Brian Grochal, Jared Scheff, Sarah Kahn and Jay Turakhai won their singles matches, while Rachel Blank and Erin Geller, Mike Guberman and Shawn Shapiro, David Brownstein and Carly Pitler, Ian Levy and Mike Soforenko, and Hyein Yoo and Prethi Gaddam took the doubles matches in convincing fashion.

The win marks the Panthers' ninth title in 12 years, including a streak of three straight.

Field hockey

Mercy 4, Catholic 0 -- Claire Naldrett scored twice and Niki Flynn also had a score and two assists to lead the Magic (8-2-1) over the Cubs.


Suspended game -- Annapolis, which was leading Old Mill 30-21 when their game was suspended in the fourth period Friday night after a shooting near the front entrance to Al Laramore Field, is the winner. Old Mill decided not to return to Annapolis and complete the game last night. "Traditionally the team winning a suspended game that is not completed gets the win," said John Cox, the director of the state football tournament committee. "Old Mill called Ned Sparks [executive director of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association] and told him of their decision [yesterday] morning." The result leaves each team 6-2.
