The Western girls have started another streak. The fourth-ranked Doves won 18 consecutive Baltimore City indoor track and field championships before losing two years ago. The Doves bounced back to win last year and captured a second consecutive title at this year's meet Wednesday night at the Fifth Regiment Armory. Carver's boys had won three in a row, but Digital Harbor ended that streak with its first city title since 2007. Western employed the same formula it has used for years -- balance and depth.

No. 3 Reservoir slowly pulled away to win its first state title (Class 3A), and No. 5 Carver quickly ran away from its Class 1A opponents to win an outdoor title for the first time.

Spectators and contestants left Coppin State College on Tuesday after the Baltimore City Girls Swimming Championships under the impression that City College had upset Western for the team title. However, after a computer error in compiling the scores was discovered, Western was crowned champion.Originally it had been announced that City had won the 12-program event with 397 points, followed by Western's 358 and Poly's 192. But the computer scoring system had calculated only the individuals placing from first through sixth, not first through ninth and points from preliminary heats earlier in the day.With the correction, Western finished with 409 points, followed by City's 397 and Poly's 233. City's score remained the same because the Knights did not have any finishers lower than sixth, so they picked up no additional points after the error was discovered.

When all of us left the Fifth Regiment Armory very late Wednesday night after Baltimore City's Indoor Track and Field Championships finally ended, a lot of questions still remained.  Because of a timing system malfunction that led to computer and scoring glitches, some events needed to be checked over again. The No. 4 Western girls and Digital Harbor's boys both had big leads and were awarded the first-place trophies, but the final scores weren't known since the results to certain events needed to be re-checked.

" In six seasons, Silver had a 126-29 record with the Doves and led them to five Baltimore City championships, five regional championships and three state title-game appearances.

The Western Tech girls were having fun in the moments after the state indoor track meet ended Monday at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex. Laughing and joking, the eighth-ranked Wolverines spent several minutes taking pictures to celebrate repeating as the Class 1A state champions. Carver boys coach Stephen Kimes and Century coach Tony Griner also wore smiles, but they were more of relief. Even though Century swept the Class 2A state titles and Carver took the Class 1A boys crown, they had a tougher time earning their championships.
