Wet weather did not dampen the spirits of the teams that played for state championship titles on Saturday, November 14th at Washington College in Chestertown. Each of the four classifications were won by schools with a history of appearing in the state tournament on a regular basis.
Severna Park topped Westminster 2-1 in Class 4A for their state best 19th state field hockey title. In Class 1A, Pocomoke defeated Bohemia Manor 5-1 for their 17th state field hockey championship. Earning a 12th state field hockey crown was Fallston in Class 2A. Fallston bested Century by a score of 3-2. Rounding out the day was Hereford pulling down a 6th state field hockey crown in the Class 3A game against James Hubert Blake by posting a 1-0 shutout.
