The Damascus Swarmin’ Hornets keep making history and Saturday’s 2A State Championship game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium was no different. The Hornets became the first team in Damascus school history to win three state titles in a row, its tenth overall, when they defeated the Gwynn Park Yellow Jackets 31-7.
The Hornets now own the Montgomery County record for most victories in a row, a record previously held by Seneca Valley.
Damascus utilized its multiple scoring threats to its advantage and bounced back after the Yellow Jackets tied the game early in the first quarter.
