The Arundel High baseball team nearly came back from a big early deficit, but ultimately lost 9-7 to Broadneck on Wednesday afternoon.

With the Wildcats eliminated from the baseball playoffs, here's a look at the season that was.
The Arundel baseball team’s season ended on Monday with a disappointing 9-1 loss to North Point in Waldorf. The team finished with a 12-9 record, and nearly all of those losses were of the close and gut-wrenching type. (Remember that triple play?)

He pitched well and hit a homer in the team’s first win over Severna Park. Dalton Durocher – Like Warwick, one of …

First test for boys team will come today at home against defending State Champion Severna Park.
The passion is evident in South River head coach Paul Noone’s voice when he speaks about lacrosse, more specifically about his team and the school where he played. It is that passion that he has instilled in his players over the last seven years, (four as the JV coach, and three as the head varsity coach) that has helped his team finish 15-3 last season, losing in the 4A/3A East Regional Final. “Our guys are grinders, they’re fast, they're intelligent, and I want them to get better every single day,” said Noone. “I want them to play with passion, to play with heart. We work as hard as we can during the week to make games feel easy.” Noone likes what he sees in his team so far, but he will get a better feel today when they play their rival…
