Spring 2017 MoCo High School Sports Review

It is a rainy day here in MoCo and I finally got around to this long over due review of spring 2017 high school sports.  So let’s go…

High School student athletes in Montgomery County excelled in the spring state playoffs and in end of year acknowledgements of their achievements. In this quick wrap up of the season I will try to recognize all teams and who received local and statewide awards.

First let me begin by offering a sincere apology to both the 2017 State Champion Severna Park Falcons and the State Finalist Churchill Bulldog Boys Lacrosse teams for suggesting on May 24th that their play was anything less than championship caliber.
