With every playoff game, Poly's coach Roger Wrenn is getting closer to the end of his coaching career.
Wrenn is retiring after 40 years of coaching in Baltimore City, but the Engineers (11-0) extended his lengthy run another week by routing visiting Perry Hall, 50-21, in a Class 4A North Region semifinal Friday night.
"I know the end is near," Wrenn said. "But I am just trying to enjoy it and it has been such a magic season."
Poly (11-0) advanced to play the Catonsville-Paint Branch winner in the regional final next Friday.
Against Perry Hall, Wrenn faced a team coached by Keith Robinson, a former assistant of his at Patterson.
