The River Hill boys rebounded from a bit of a slow start last season, catching fire in October and charging virtually unchallenged throughout championship season for the third straight year. Will they have what it takes to remain the class of the county in 2017? (Photo by Melissa Rose)
The River Hill boys own a well-documented three-year winning streak at the 3A state championships (one that will only end this year because they are moving down to the 2A classification). They have also taken care of things at home, winning the past three Howard County team titles by comfortable margins. They have graduated strong senior classes over that span and continue to come out on top, but will another squad step up and break the streak in 2017? And if so, which team will that be?
