No. 2 Western @ No. 4 City
WHEN: Friday, 5:15 p.m.
OUTLOOK: The Doves, who beat No. 7 Digital Harbor on Tuesday, could clinch a berth in the Baltimore City championship with a win. If City wins, it would need to beat Digital next week to claim the spot. The Knights will try to rebound from last week's lopsided loss to No. 1 St. Frances, but they will need to execute better against Western, which trailed at halftime last season before winning, 55-44, and going on to win a third straight city title.
THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICK: Western
Dual-meet state finals
WHEN: Saturday, 6 p.m.
WHERE: Marriotts Ridge
OUTLOOK: The state semifinals and title matches make a full day of wrestling: Class 4A-3A at noon on two mats followed by Class 2A-1A at 2 p.m. on two mats. Owings Mills took the 2A-1A crown last season for its fourth title since 2002. The Eagles and Overlea (1999) are the only teams from the county to win a title since the meet debuted in 1994.
THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICKS:
Old Mill (4A-3A), River Hill (2A-1A)
No. 1 Lake Clifton @ No. 4 Walbrook
WHEN: Tuesday, 5:15 p.m.
OUTLOOK: Hoping to take one more step toward an unbeaten regular season, Lake Clifton may face its toughest test against the host Warriors. The Lakers, led by 6-foot-7 swingman Will Barton and 6-0 guard Jason Sharp, have defeated opponents by an average of 25 points this season. Walbrook will be coming off another tough matchup against No. 15 Patterson on Friday.
