With a 63-23 victory over the Queen Anne’s Lions, the Poolesville Falcons completed an undefeated 2017-18 season, winning the Maryland Class 2A state championship.
Before this season, the Poolesville girls basketball team had never won a state championship in program history, let alone a regional title.
A final record of 27-0 this season changed that, and the Falcons will be placing a banner commemorating their undefeated season in their gym.
“It was a storybook finish to a storybook season,” Swick said.
