A month ago, it didn't seem as if the Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference championship would be much of a game.It seemed inevitable that Dunbar would play either Southern or Lake Clifton for the title, and the Poets already had disposed of both rather handily.But a funny thing happened on the way to today's 7 p.m. championship game in the Metro Classic at the Baltimore Arena -- the Poets found some competition.Last Sunday, Southern, which lost to the Poets by 40 in January, led Dunbar for three quarters before the Poets rallied to win, 59-55, in the championship game of the Baltimore City Public Schools Tournament.

The raw speed and vertical leaping ability of Damion Moss helped Meade's football team earn a berth in this year's Class 4A state semifinal.Yesterday at Catonsville Community College, those attributes helped lift the Mustangs to the boys team title at the annual Metro Classic track and field meet.Moss, an All-Metro defensive back who intercepted 10 passes last season, picked up 26 points for the Mustangs by winning the high jump and finishing second in the 45-yard -- and 45 high hurdles. Moss' effort proved to be the difference as Meade held off runner-up Perry Hall, 56-50.

Unknown to Archbishop Curley, last night was a sentimental journey of sorts for the St. Paul's Crusaders.For 10 of their seniors, the Maryland Scholastic Association C Conference semifinal was to be their final home game, and they were determined to go out a winner.By outscoring the Friars 14-0 to open the game, they all but assured that. The Crusaders outshot, out-rebounded and outplayed Curley en route to an 81-53 win."When it came down to playing in this gym for the last time, it meant a lot," said St. Paul's guard Rob Bouse, who scored 20, including five three-pointers.
