Duke sophomore midfielder Deemer Class and senior midfielder Christian Walsh grew up playing with fiddle sticks in the parking lots of M&T Bank Stadium prior to attending Championship Weekend as spectators. The Blue Devils practiced Sunday night at Boys' Latin, Walsh's alma mater, to prepare itself for Monday's title game matchup with Notre Dame. A day later, the duo completed their homecoming trip to Baltimore, helping propel top-seeded Duke to its second consecutive national championship.

Players from Manchester Valley were greeted by a surprise visitor before Saturday's Class 1A state softball final. O.J. Brigance, the Ravens' director of player development, stopped by as a favor to coach Mike Hernandez. He spoke of his battle with ALS - also known as Lou Gehrig's disease - and left the Carroll County team ready for battle. Starting pitcher Madison Grimm took care of the rest. Grimm pitched a complete game two-hitter, striking out 12, and drove in a pair of runs in a 9-0 win over Sparrows Point at the University of Maryland.

Pikesville senior Daniel Lewis won the Class 1A 110-meter hurdles and set a school record at the state track and field championships on Saturday at Morgan State. He completed the 110 hurdles in 15.25 seconds, breaking his personal record and the school record of 15:38. “All the instruction I gave him is 'You are the top seed. Go out there and run your race, and you're going to win,'” Pikesville head coach Adam Hittner said. “That's exactly what he did. He happened to run not just his race, but his best race.” Lewis, who will attend UMBC in the fall and plans to become a lawyer, continued his recent dominance.

Western Tech's Carrington Akosa's sleep schedule is far from that of a normal high school student. He goes to bed at 7 p.m. every school night and wakes up between 2 and 3 a.m. to do his homework.  “It's like clockwork,” Western Tech coach Shedrick Elliott said. But sleep is not the only thing that makes Akosa the runner he has become. His sleep schedule, coupled with his exceptional work ethic and most of all his scorching speed, served him well on Saturday at the track and field championships at Morgan State.

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.

The Century boys are being led by a bit of an unusual combination as they try for a second straight Class 2A state title in track and field. Pole vaulters often concentrate on that one event. Chandler Kennell and Nick Neral are two of the state's top pole vaulters, but they also help the Knights in other ways and were big reasons No. 3 Century led after Thursday's first day of the state meet at Morgan State. Class 3A and 4A have their first day today, with all four classes coming together to finish Saturday.

Deemer Class was at M&T Bank Stadium in 2010 when Duke beat Notre Dame, 6-5, in overtime to capture the first men's lacrosse national title in school history. Now he'll have a chance to win his own championship at the stadium where he grew up watching the Ravens. While the prospect of a second consecutive title - and the program's third in five years - is exhilarating in itself, Class has extra motivation for Duke's 1 p.m. semifinal matchup against Denver on Saturday. He'll get to return to home and play in front of a large contingent of friends and family.
