In the final game of the spring season across the state, Glen Burnie and Sherwood went back and forth in a war of wills before Sherwood prevailed, 8-7 for the Class 4A championship, their sixth state title. Another 4A school, Walt Whitman, was awarded the Eugene G. Robertson Tournament Sportsmanship Award prior to the awards ceremony at the final game. This was Whitman's first ever tournament appearance in softball, so congratulations on making a great first impression!
