After four rounds of play, one local girls lacrosse team has been crowned a regional champion and advances to the state semifinals.
The Class 1A/2A North region champion Loch Raven Raiders will travel to Bel Air High School at 8 p.m. Friday to take on West region champs Winters Mill.
To earn the spot in the state semis, the girls crushed Pikesville, 20-7, earlier this week, according to the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association website.
While Winters Mill has had to play a total of four games during the playoffs to earn the right to play Loch Raven, the Raiders should be fresh having earned a first-round bye and a second-round forfeit victory against Overlea.
Aside from the game against Pikesville this week, Loch Raven has had to go through Sparrows Point, the first-seed in the North region, on the way to Bel Air High School.
A victory over Winters Mill would see the girls travel to UMBC Stadium in Catonsville either Tuesday or Wednesday, where they would face the winner of this weekend's Fallston-Easton semifinal matchup.
