3A North baseball: I bring this one up first because I know North Harford, which just captured its first UCBAC title Wednesday, is out for blood, having been eliminated by La Plata last year in a 15-inning, state semifinal epic. The majority of the 2011 Hawks squad returned for the 2012 campaign, and I don't see any reason they couldn't stomp their way to the title game. Of course, they're probably going to have to beat C. Milton Wright and Bel Air in a two-day span next week, weather permitting, and I wouldn't wish that kind of schedule on anyone. Remember, Bel Air beat Patterson Mill, the only UCBAC team that was able to knock off North Harford this year, and, strange late-season results aside, CMW is always dangerous, so there are no guarantees. In a perfect world, however, North Harford gets to the 3A finals, where the Hawks square off with the East bracket's top seed, La Plata, and get revenge, maybe in another 15-inning epic.
