Not quite four years ago, I began some trips to St. Vincent Cemetery, an old and abandoned burying ground largely surrounded by the Clifton Park Golf Course in Northeast Baltimore. In that summer of 2010, a small group of descendants of those buried there initiated a campaign to get the weeds and invasive trees cut down - and to win respect for the spot where nearly 3,700 people rest. Last fall, a 15-year-old Dulaney High School sophomore from Lutherville, John Patrick Nolan III, stepped up. As his Eagle Scout project, he decided to improve the cemetery's condition.

The Edmondson boys basketball team knew exactly what it was in for going into Friday's Class 1A South region championship against Baltimore City rival Lake Clifton. Coach Darnell Dantzler told his No. 11 Red Storm that, to win, it would take maximum effort from every player. For senior guard Chaz Lassiter, that effort was shown in a 16-point performance, including 6-for-6 work at the free throw line in the fourth quarter. For junior forward Kani Coles, it was controlling the boards and scoring a couple big baskets when they were hard to come by down the stretch.

For the first three-plus quarters of Saturday's Baltimore City Division I boys basketball championship game, scrappy Lake Clifton was doing all the little things a little bit better against No. 1 and undefeated City. And then, City senior guards Kamau Stokes and Omari George had seen enough. First it was Stokes who hit a big 3-pointer. Then it was George's turn. He scrapped for an offensive rebound, got fouled and made two free throws. The next possession George did the same, this time making the follow shot and converting a three-point play.

The talented trio carried the Knights all season, but they also have received strong inside play from brothers John and Juwant Grant, creating difficult matchups all over the court for opponents.

The Lake Clifton boys basketball team doesn't have the flashy player who can pour in points. And the No. 10 Lakers often give up size any time they go up against the other top teams in Baltimore City. To make up for any shortcomings, they work hard in practice, play smart and tenacious team defense and, most importantly, believe in each other. After falling behind by a point at No. 7 Edmondson in the closing seconds of overtime on Tuesday, Lake Clifton was confident it would find a way to win. Senior Stephon Brown, a 5-foot-5 guard, made sure, hitting a jumper with nine seconds left in overtime to give the Lakers a grind-it-out, 43-42 win over the host Red Storm.

When senior point guard Elijah Kess was a sophomore reserve and Lake Clifton was getting ready to play in the state title game, Lakers' coach Herman "Tree" Harried pulled him aside. "You're a tenth grader and about to win a state title," the player said he was told. Kess says it was the best day of his life - the Lakers indeed brought home a state crown - and now he's striving to one-up it. In his second year as a starter and team captain, he knows it's his turn to lead the Lakers to another championship.
