CROSS COUNTRY

State championships

Where -- Hereford

When -- Saturday, 10 a.m.

Outlook -- Hereford's Kristen Malloy, who set a record on her home course in the Bull Run, is the favorite in the Class 3A girls race. Keep your eyes on Bull Run boys elite race winner Sumanth Kuppalli from Perry Hall in the Class 4A race. Both were county champions. Also watch Mervo's Baltimore City champs Kitria Stewart and Aaron Moon in the Class 3A girls and boys races, respectively.

Football

City vs. No. 10 Poly

Where -- M&T Bank Stadium

When -- Saturday, noon

Outlook -- The 119th edition of one of the nation's longest-running rivalry for public schools will have playoff implications. Poly, which leads the series 58-54-6, has dropped the past two games to the Knights. Poly (8-1) can gain the No. 2 seed behind No. 9 Eastern Tech (9-0) in Class 2A North with a victory over City. The Knights (7-2) are vying for one of the four berths in the region, along with No. 12 Edmondson (7-2) and Randallstown (8-1). Poly's offense, which features RB Lee Reynolds, who has scored 23 touchdowns, was dominant in a 38-14 rout of Edmondson on Friday. City beat Mervo, 21-12, on Friday.

Calvert Hall @ Randallstown

When -- Saturday, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- This matchup between the Cardinals of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the Rams of Baltimore County finds Randallstown with the most at stake. Randallstown probably needs to win to make the 2A North playoffs. The Cardinals (4-5) played Eastern Tech tough before losing, 15-9.

Gilman @ No. 5 McDonogh

When -- Saturday, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- McDonogh (6-3) can gain a share of the MIAA A Conference title with a victory over the Greyhounds (3-5) in the 92nd meeting between the schools. Gilman, which is 1-3 in the conference, has dominated the series at 54-32-5. McDonogh took last season's game, 22-16, to create tri-champions among the Eagles, Gilman and Loyola. The Eagles are 3-1 in the conference, and a win will give them a share of the crown with No. 13 Mount St. Joseph (5-4, 4-1). No. 3 Loyola (7-1, 2-1) could then make it another three-way championship with wins over Georgetown Prep (3-6, 1-3) on Saturday and Calvert Hall on Nov. 22. Sophomore QB Rudy Johnson leads the McDonogh offense against the Gilman defense, led by Wake Forest-bound LB Joe Ehrmann.
