Only the top four finishers in each weight classification will advance to the state tourney at Western Maryland College on March 1-2.One of the season's most dominant wrestlers has been Broadneck's Shawn Miller. The junior 112-pounder has pinned 22 opponents in winning all of his 27 matches. He pinned his way to the Anne Arundel County championship last weekend and will go after his second regional title in the Class 4A/3A Region IV tourney this weekend at Meade.

With one landmark victory behind it, the Broadneck girls lacrosse team now is looking for another. The Bruins' 9-8 win over Severna Park last week gave them their second county title in the past three seasons and marked the first time they had defeated the Falcons in the county final. In winning six county titles since the final began in 1996, the Falcons defeated Broadneck in three of them, including last season's 10-9 win. After knocking off Broadneck in the 2005 county final, the Falcons stumbled in the Class 4A-3A regionals and repeated what has become a trend among county girls lacrosse teams.

Dulaney's girls lacrosse team repeated as Baltimore County champion yesterday thanks to getting off to a quick start - twice. The No. 7 Lions scored the first six goals of the game and, after a lengthy second-half injury delay, they scored five in a row. Those runs made the difference as the host Lions defeated Catonsville, 17-10. After each of those spurts, the Comets (9-4) rallied with their patient settled offense, pulling within three goals at the half and within five with 15:46 left in the game.

Arundel girls basketball coach Lee Rogers said winning county championship games "are nice, but getting to the state tournament is better and what we are focused on." That's coming from the county's most successful girls coach since the county finals for boys and girls - pitting the top two finishers from the regular season - commenced in the 1995-96 season. No. 6 Arundel claimed its fourth consecutive county title and its ninth in 11 years with last week's 62-53 win over No. 13 Old Mill.

Three years ago, Chesapeake track coach Skip Lee pulled an inexperienced freshman sprinter aside at the county track meet and told her that one day she would be an elite runner. "At the county championships as a freshman, I told her that I knew she had great things in store for her," Lee remembers telling Britney Foreman, now a senior at Chesapeake. "She looked at me with a look that said, `What are you talking about?' " Foreman might not have believed him at the time, but Lee's words have proved prophetic.

Then, we upset [three-time defending county champ] Towson and before you know it, here we are, county champions."
