Yourry Ta­pande of Dun­dalk won the Class 3A 300-me­ter dash state ti­tle on Tues­day at the state cham­pi­onship meet in Prince Ge­orge’s County.

Ta­pande fin­ished with a time of 35.55 to edge Franklin’s Miles Hol­limon, who fin­ished in 35.68.

The race re­sults came in as the Ea­gle was go­ing to press on Tues­day, and the meet had not fin­ished by press time. More de­tails to fol­low next week.

In Class 2A, Spar­rows Point high jumper Bri­ana Gam­ble had been chas­ing Here­ford’s Alexan­dra Butz through­out the post­sea­son, fin­ish­ing sec­ond to her at the Bal­ti­more County cham­pi­onships and the Class 2A Cen­tral re­gion cham­pi­onships.

Gam­ble caught Butz on Mon­day at the Class 2A Mary­land State cham­pi­onship meet at the Prince Ge­orge’s County Sport­sPlex, but the gold medal eluded both ath­letes.

Bey­once Kelly of Har­ford tech won the Class 2A state high jump ti­tle by clear­ing 5-foot-6. Gam­ble and Butz tied for sec­ond with a height of 5-4.

Gam­ble and Butz both cleared 5-4 at the Bal­ti­more County cham­pi­onships, but Butz won the ti­tle on the ba­sis of fewer misses. They had an equal num­ber of misses on Mon­day, with each jumper clear­ing 5-4 on her sec­ond at- tempt and miss­ing all three at­tempts at 5-6.

Bri­ana was the only lo­cal ath­lete to place at the Class 2A state cham­pi­onships. Her fresh­man sis­ter, Sa­man­tha, also qual­i­fied for the state meet in the high jump, but didn’t ad­vance to the fi­nals.

Spar­rows Point (8-11) ended the reg­u­lar sea­son with a 34-31 loss to East­ern Tech on Fe­bru­ary 15.

East­ern Tech will host Spar­rows Point on Fri­day at 4 p.m.

The win­ner of the game will face ei­ther sec­ond-seeded Dun­bar or sev­enth­seeded Carver Vo-Tech on Mon­day. Spar­rows Point would travel to Dun­bar or host Carver Tech.

In the Class 3A North Re­gion Sec­tion II play­offs, Pat­ap­sco (4-15) is seeded sixth and will play at third-seeded Edge­wood on Fri­day.

The win­ner ad­vances to the sec­tional semi­fi­nals against ei­ther Tow­son, the No. 2 seed, or sev­enth-seeded Dun­dalk (1-18) on Mon­day.
