The Arundel Wildcats could be called many things in the Class 4A state championship at UMBC's RAC Arena on Saturday, and all of them would be true. Frustrated, angry, opportunistic and fiery all come to mind. In the end though, just call them champions. The fifth-ranked Wildcats (23-4) staged a fierce rally midway through the third quarter to rebound from a nine-point deficit and defeat Gaithersburg, 53-40, to win the championship in a game that was much closer than the score indicated.

Chesapeake's Drew Spinnenweber has pitched like the ace he is all year. Friday night was no exception. The senior worked himself out of jams in the first and fifth innings and struck out 13 batters to lead the No. 4 Cougars of Anne Arundel County to a 2-0 win over Montgomery County's Sherwood (15-8) in the Class 4A state title game at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. Spinnenweber helped his own cause with a double to start off the third. It was the only inning the Cougars scored in, and the only extra base hit in the game.

Old Mill's chances to win its first state title might have appeared to go down in the first quarter Friday night when star running back Josh Furman suffered a knee injury, leaving Jason Clements to take over the workhorse role. Clements, who had been overshadowed by Furman despite rushing for more than 1,100 yards this season, eagerly shouldered the bulk of the rushing load. The senior carried the ball 40 times for 164 yards and one touchdown to lead the Patriots to their first state championship, 17-16, over Wise in the Class 4A final before an announced 8,534 at M&T Bank Stadium.

After five games and 2 1/2 hours of volleyball, Broadneck had just enough energy to celebrate at CCBC-Essex last night.

It was a match that had a little of everything from strong hitting to accurate serving, penetrating kills, monster blocks and players diving all over the floor.

Meade coach Rich Holzer faced a difficult decision when his team scored a touchdown with 48 seconds left Friday night. Kicking the extra point would tie the game with visiting Arundel, but if he gambled and went for two, the Mustangs could win.  Holzer rolled the dice and came up big. Jamarkeus Hammond ran for the two-point conversion on his first carry of the season, and No. 6 Meade pulled out a dramatic, 22-21 victory over No. 3 Arundel in...

The Catonsville girls soccer team spent most of Saturday's Class 4A state title game valiantly defending against talented Walt Whitman's persistent attack. Eventually, it became too big a burden. For more than 70 minutes, the No. 5 Comets turned away everything the Vikings from Montgomery County sent their way, protecting their goal with stubborn determination and poise. But Walt Whitman finally broke through with two goals in the final eight minutes - both on headers by senior forward Anna Gurney - to come away with a 2-0 win over Catonsville at UMBC Stadium.

Back in April, the Glen Burnie softball team managed to bust out of its early-season funk to forge a path that would lead all the way to Saturday's Class 4A state final in College Park. Once there, however, the Gophers simply couldn't pull off another turnaround. Sherwood from Montgomery County scored three runs against Glen Burnie starting pitcher Ali Moos in the first inning, and the Gophers never recovered in a 5-0 loss at the University of Maryland. First baseman Megan McDonough had a double, triple and three RBIs for the Warriors, who extended their winning streak to 42 straight games in capturing their second straight state title.
