The Mount de Sales girls lacrosse team has had some experience with close games, losing three by one goal in overtime during the regular season. The 10th-seeded Sailors applied those early hard lessons and dug out an 11-10 win over No. 10 and seventh-seeded host St. Paul's in the opening round of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference tournament Friday.
Mandy Ignacio scored the eventual game-winner, and the Sailors defense — anchored by goalie Maggie Smith — gave up only one goal over the final six minutes.
Both teams are 7-8. Mount de Sales travels to No.7 and second seed Notre Dame Prep in Monday's quarterfinal.
No. 5 Severn 16, Maryvale 8: Miranda Ibello had a game-high six goals, but the 12th-seeded Lions (1-14) fell to the fifth-seeded host Admirals (13-4) in the opening round of the IAAM A Conference tournament.

Track and field
The Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Track and Field Championships failed to reach the finish line Friday night on the track at North East High School in Cecil County.
A rain-soaked jumping pit, traffic delays and computer glitches delayed the meet's conclusion past 10 p.m. Officials stated that results, including the team winners, would not be available until Saturday.
As competitors began the long-delayed triple jump, Edgewood was leading the boys team scoring, and Harford Tech and C. Milton Wright were locked in a close race in the girls meet.
Edgewood was seeking its second boys title, and Tech, its fourth girls title since the conference of 15 Harford and Cecil schools was formed nine years ago.
Edgewood opened the proceedings with a meet-record performance in the 4x800 relay. Michael Dzambasow led off with a personal best of 1:57, and Langston Gash, David Dzambasow, and Aaron Parker extended the lead to 9 seconds at the finish in 8:14.66, four seconds better than the previous mark.
The Rams scored big in the relays but also got outstanding performances in the individual events, including a meet record performance by Izaiah Sneed in the 110 hurdles.
Harford Tech’s Paige Chapman won the three dashes in the girls competition, edging C. Milton Wright freshman Christina Riggins in the 100 and 200, and running a personal best of 58 seconds in the 400.
Chapman also placed second in the long jump.
Wright’s Bethany Riley set a meet record in winning the high jump. She bettered the mark by 2 inches with a jump of 5 feet 4. Fallston’s Lauren Woollen also jumped 5-4 but finished second based on misses.
