Reaching The Top Is Sweet For State Champs

     Four title games were played and four tough victories were claimed by the newly crowned state girls basketball champions.  Harford County won two classification titles with Joppatowne winning the Class 1A Championship and Fallston winning the Class 2A Championship. Anne Arundel County's Arundel took home the Class 4A State trophy while the Class 3A title went to Seneca Valley of Montgomery County.

     Both Seneca Valley and Joppatowne won the first ever girls state basketball championships in their school's histories.  Fallston's added to last year's 3A title by winning their second overall and second consecutive state championship in two different classifications. This year's 4A crown was the fourth for Arundel and their first since 2004 in seven appearances at UMBC this decade.
