Playoff action continues for one area school while another made a big showing at the Baltimore County Track and Field Championship over the weekend.
Loch Raven High School's girls (No. 4) defeated Sparrows Point (No. 1) 13-7 when they traveled to the east side school Monday afternoon. The victory has earned the Raiders the right to compete for the regional championship in Class 2A North.
The girls will host Pikesville (No. 7) for a game later this week, which currently has not been scheduled according to the MPSSAA website. Other regional championship games in Class 2A around the state are set for Wednesday afternoon.
If the Raiders are able to get past Pikesville they'll be headed to the State semifinal game against either Winters Mill or Oakdale at Bel Air High School on May 17 or 18.
Loch Raven, the last remaining local boys lacrosse team, was eliminated from the Class 2A playoffs with a 14-7 loss Monday at Southern High School.
Loch Raven's boys are still in contention following a 33-2 blowout over Carver Monday night. They host Owings Mills on Wednesday in a region semifinal. A win would push them to the region championship game against either Dundalk or Lansdowne.
The Overlea Falcons were eliminated from contention in the Class 1A playoffs in a 10-1 loss to Pikesville.
Loch Raven (No. 6) hosts Lansdowne (No. 7) at home Wednesday at 4 p.m. for a regional semifinal contest following a 17-0 victory over Lake Clifton (No. 3). A win would see the girls advance to the regional championship where they play either Dundalk or Chesapeake.
Great news out of Overlea High School following the Baltimore County Track and Field Championships this past weekend where the school brought home a gold, four silver and three bronze medals.
Kiki "The Freshman Sensation" Vasquez brought home gold for the Falcons with a discus throw of 88 feet, according to an email from Overlea High School varsity football coach Craig Rollins. That medal, combined with a silver finish in the shot put (30 feet 5 inches) puts Vasquez in the top five of the Class 1A rankings.
The boys 800 meter relay team started strong with runner Jordan Watson keeping them in the top 4 off the gun, Rollins wrote. Second runner Ali Williams kept Overlea in contention before handing off to Miracle Onouha who blazed past the field to put the boys in first. The lead helped put closing runner Cameron Johnson in position to bring home silver.
Onouha also brought home two silver medals in individual competitions: the 400 meter dash and the 800 meter run, where he had a time of 2:07, Rollins wrote.
In the high jump, boys team captain Brian "Waterbug" Wright brought home bronze with a 5 foot 10 inch leap, Rollins wrote. Kim Ndukwe added two bronze medals to her collection following successes in the 100 meter dash and 300 meter hurdles.
The Falcons compete at New Town High School at 9 a.m. Saturday for the opportunity to qualify for the State Championships held May 23 and 25 at Morgan State University.
