Overlea and Parkville’s Boys Basketball teams seasons came to an end in their respective State Semifinal games on Wednesday night.
Overlea fell to 52-41 to Westlake in the 2A MPSSAA State Semifinals at Montgomery Blair High School. The Falcons made it back to the state semifinals for the first time in 30 years.
Dr. Darryl L. Williams, BCPS Superintendent, attended Overlea’s game on Wednesday and said he was proud of the team’s effort.
“I returned to Blair HS and watched Overlea Boys Basketball team play a great game,” Williams posted on Twitter.
“Thank you to the Overlea community, students, staff, and alumni for supporting our athletic program, our coaches and our student athletes. Proud of you.”
Parkville’s perfect season came to an end with a 59 to 57 loss to Roosevelt in the 2A MPSSAA State Semifinals at North Point High School in Waldorf.
The Knights made it to the State Semifinals in 2020 but never got the chance to finish the season as the final two games were canceled after the COVID-19 outbreak.
The team released a statement after the game.
“The journey for the Boys Varsity Knights basketball team ended tonight with a loss of 57-59. Boys I’m sure you are disappointed but all your fellow Knights are so proud of you. You had an epic season coming off the craziness of the last 2 years. Hold your heads high because you are Knights and we are strong. Congratulations on all you accomplished this season.”
