The County won the girls match at Poly, 54-51. At Dunbar, the County outlasted the City, 103-101, in the boys match.
Dulaney forward Morgan Erhardt had 12 points for the County girls, who held off a second half charge for City. Owings Mills forward Serafina Stubbs (7 points) was selected Most Valuable Player for Baltimore County.
The County led 31-16 at halftime, but Baltimore City closed to 51-50 with 57 seconds remaining on a free throw from Poly’s Taylor Addison. Eastern Tech’s Maniya Simon converted 1 of 2 free throws with 10 seconds remaining, giving Baltimore County a 52-50 lead.
Poly’s Riley Holliday made 1 of 2 free throws, bringing the City to within 52-51 with 8 seconds remaining. Hereford’s Lauren Orner converted 2 free throws with 6 seconds left for a 54-51 County advantage.
Addison missed on a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Addison finished with a game-best 18 points and was selected MVP for Baltimore City. Trinity Massenburg (Poly) had 10 points.
Massensburg and Addison, who led Poly to the Class 3A state final last weekend, started for the City along with Digital Harbor’s Cindy Pastora, Zion McCoy and Treasure Scott.
Stubbs, Simon and Orner started for the County along with Carver A&T’s Brooke Parker and Ryanne Coleman.
In the boys match, Baltimore County rallied in the second half to outduel the City. Parkville guard Caron Smith scored 15 points, and Dulaney’s Patrick Wynne finished with 11.
Smith, who helped Parkville to its first state championship last weekend, was selected MVP for the County. James Thomspon (Chesapeake-Baltimore County) and Arrington Greenfield from 2A state champ New Town each added 10 for the County, which went on a 34-18 tear in the third quarter.
