Senior Devonte Gray staked McDonough of Charles County to a lead in the Class 2A state final Saturday night, and then with the game on the line, he preserved it. Gray, who caught three touchdown passes to give the Rams a 21-point lead over Middletown, sacked Michael Pritts on a fourth-and-11 at the Middletown 42 with 23 seconds left, and McDonough prevailed, 21-14, at M&T Bank Stadium. "I just realized once I got him the game was over," Gray said. "I knew in my head I was going to get him. I was going my hardest to get him. " Gray — who caught touchdown passes of 43, 25 and 15 yards — finished with five receptions for 109 yards for McDonough (13-1)

The Carver boys and Liberty girls won team titles in Saturday's state championship meet at Morgan State. But the Bears and Lions earned their championships in different ways. No. 4 Carver had no trouble repeating as the Class 1A champion, while No. 3 Liberty needed a late rally to pull out a dramatic victory, edging North Hagerstown and Long Reach for the school's first state crown. Carver finished with 112 points for a 40-point win over Catoctin. The Bears now have won state titles in indoor and outdoor track this year and last.

Dan Replogle, Winters Mill He's been here before. Replogle guided Francis Scott Key to a state championship in 2006 before moving over to Winters Mill the following year. Now he has earned a second state title - this time with the Falcons - and a second Coach of the Year honor. The Falcons had several good runners this year, led by first-team All-Metro pick Eric Tringali and second-team selection Tom Carpenter. But they truly ran as a pack and didn't worry about individual accolades.

Putting the bow on what could be argued is the finest boys lacrosse season in Glenelg history didn't come easy for the No. 6 Gladiators in Tuesday's Class 2A-1A state title game against surprising Patterson Mill. It wasn't until sophomore midfielder Anthony Pagnotta won his 11th faceoff in 13 tries — pushing it forward to help erase the final 18 seconds — that the Gladiators finally secured a 5-4 victory over the stubborn Huskies to bring home the program's third state title.

North County softball coach Brian Love, the Metro Coach of the Year last spring after leading the Knights (19-4) to their first Class 4A state crown, has stepped down after accepting an administrative position at Chesapeake-AA. Love, 34, started his new position as assistant principal at Chesapeake yesterday, reluctantly leaving behind his teaching position and coaching duties at North County, where he also was an assistant for the girls soccer team. "The thought of not coaching softball was difficult, but also having to leave all the great people I worked with at North County is tough," said Love.

LANDOVER - The frustration was palpable and universal. A lack of training precipitated by last weekend's snowstorm spelled disappointment for area teams, which fared poorly at last night's Class 4A-3A state indoor track and field championships at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex. Tradition ruled as Eleanor Roosevelt registered 62 points and extended Prince George's County's reign for girls titles with the county's 13th state crown in the past 14 seasons. On the boys side, Suitland compiled 72 points to grab its first championship since 1982 and give Prince George's County seven state titles in the past nine years.

Severna Park polished off a rare lacrosse double last night in the state Class 4A-3A championship game at UMBC. Not only did the No. 2 Falcons win their second straight state crown, 17-6, over No. 15 Catonsville, but they did so with another undefeated record. Over the past two years, the Falcons have gone 40-0. "For this year, it's definitely the same feeling to just win and be 20-0 again for the whole season," Falcons defender Theresa Zichelli said. "It's different, though, because we're the seniors this year and we were the leaders of the team, so to bring the whole team to another state championship is always a good feeling."

Michael Harris Joppatowne Perhaps the biggest challenge Harris faced in November was blending three talented transfers into an already strong returning lineup. While it took a little while to get everything rolling in the Mariners' complex sets, the trio meshed with the veterans quickly. The No. 8 Mariners (26-2) hit their stride in January, taking off on an 18-0 run to complete the season with the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship and their first state crown, a 63-46 Class 1A final victory over Smithsburg - a team they had lost to, 61-40, in December.

— In the past two days at the University of Maryland, for a couple hours in each, the Dunbar boys basketball team took over the Comcast Center court like it was its own. The No. 4 Poets, prepped by their demanding regular-season schedule in Baltimore City, proved to be a cut above the rest of the Class 1A field. Their final assignment was Saturday's state championship game against Williamsport. Getting separation in the second quarter and then controlling the second half with defense, Dunbar repeated as champions, bringing home the program's 13th state crown with a thorough 64-43 win over the Wildcats from Washington County.

Wilde Lake wasn't even expected to get out of its all-Howard County region, much less reach the state football final, but the No. 8 Wildecats stifled No. 6 Franklin's running game, intercepted two passes and held off a late Indians surge en route to a 21-14 victory for the Class 3A state title Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium. Wilde Lake quarterback Joe Kelly had a big kiss for the state championship trophy as the Wildecats (11-3) finished off their fourth straight upset to win their sixth state crown and their first since 1997.

Duplicating the magic of last season's 28-0 season seemed impossible for Fallston's girls basketball team after All-Metro forward Jess Harlee tore a knee ligament in August. When Harlee returned to the court in early February, however, she did exactly what she did last year - lead the Cougars to an unbeaten stretch and the state crown. Harlee scored 18 points, grabbed 19 rebounds and hit six free throws in the final 42 seconds to lead the Cougars (20-5) to a 58-53 victory over Gwynn Park for the Class 2A title Saturday at UMBC's RAC Arena.
