Johns Hopkins-bound Shack Stanwick had five points (two goals, three assists) and No. 1 Boys' Latin completed a perfect regular season in boys lacrosse Tuesday with a 13-8 win over No. 5 St.Paul's.
The Lakers finish the regular season with an overall record of 18-0 and a 9-0 mark in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association AConference. The last time Boys' Latin had a perfect season was 2006; there have been only five undefeated teams in the MIAA since plastic sticks were introduced into the sport. The Lakers are the top seed in the conference tournament and await the winner of Friday's game between the Crusaders (15-4, 5-4) and No. 4 Calvert Hall in Tuesday's semifinal at Johnny Unitas Stadium.
Mount St. Joseph 9, No. 11 St. Mary's 8, 2OT: The Gaels (10-10, 2-8 MIAA A Conference) fell behind early but switched goalies and turned up the offense to win.

No. 4 Calvert Hall 12, No. 7 Loyola 5: Andrew Fanshaw had five points (two goals, three assists) and the visiting Cardinals (11-5, 6-3) won an MIAA A Conference game against the Dons (10-8, 3-6).

Howard County championships: Most of the fans had cleared out of the stadium Tuesday. Howard was announced as the girls champion 30 minutes earlier and had already taken a victory lap.
But for the Mount Hebron and Reservoir boys teams, there was nervous energy mounting as two events — discus and triple jump — were still undecided. Through 16 events at this year's championships, only a couple of points separated the two teams.
Several minutes later, though, after the final points were tallied, it was Mount Hebron — on the strength of Brendan Chavis' capturing gold in the discus — doing the celebrating. The Vikings ended up prevailing over the defending champion Gators, 116-110, on a rainy afternoon at Reservoir High School.
"I'm extremely proud of myself because I didn't think I could win in both events," said Chavis, who also won the shot put. "I'm so proud of the team, too. We were trying to win it all and we achieved that goal."
Mount Hebron coach Teyarnte Carter expected the tight finish.
"To be honest, we knew it was going to be close between three teams — Reservoir, Howard and us," Carter said. "We told them to come out here and just compete. We didn't have a beautiful day to drop times so we told them to just worry about the places. Everyone had to show up on the same day."
