2012 Still the same


As the regular season begins to wind down it is some usual faces in the usual places in the State. McDonogh school sits atop the MIAA, Georgetown Prep atop the IAC, Dematha atop the WCAC. In the publics it looks like Owings Mills is still top dog in Baltimore County, Winters Mill in Carroll County, River Hill in Howard, Stephen Decatur in the Baysides and Magruder in Montgomery. A new team to emerge is South River in Anne Arundel County.

It is sad to see some old tournaments die but the Romp In the Swamp, which was the BIG 20, which was the Dundalk Tournament is no longer around, nor is the more recent and highly competitive Mount Mat Madness, which itself was formerly the Hammond Tournament.

The next big event in Maryland is the inaugural MIAA A conference Dual Meet championship. The MIAA has been split into two divisions a Black division currently led by the McDonogh Eagles, currently ranked #1team in the state by the MSWA, and the Red Division, currently led by the Archbishop Spalding Cavaliers, the Defending MIAA and MIS state champions and currently ranked #4 by the MSWA. Between the two teams there are currently 8 individual state championships.
