Southeast Baltimore went three for three in high school basketball state championship action over the weekend.
In Class 1A, Dunbar High School’s Lady Poets won their second straight state championship, beating Western Tech of Baltimore County by a score of 50-42. The win was Dunbar girls’ sixth all-time state championship.
Dunbar boys, meanwhile, won its Class 1A championship, 60-36 over New Town. It was the Poets’ third championship in a row, and the 14th state title overall for the boys’ team.
Outside Southeast, but still in the city limits, Lake Clifton High School clinched the Class 2A state title when the Lakers beat out Largo, 70-64.
The teams’ victories are “building on Baltimore’s great tradition of public high school basketball,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake, a Western grad. “I look forward to welcoming the Lakers, Clippers, Poets, and Lady Poets to City Hall to celebrate their accomplishments.”
