GAMBRILLS, MD - Arundel High School lost the Class 3A volleyball state championship on Saturday at Harford Community College. The Wildcats fell in straight sets (25-23, 25-21, 25-23) to North Hagerstown, The Capital reported.

The loss snapped Arundel's perfect record and dropped the squad to 18-1 on the season. The Capital said the Wildcats also lost last year's Class 4A state final before being reclassified to Class 3A this year. Rather than the loss, seniors said they will remember their 63-3 record over the past four years and their 4A state championship in 2021.

"I'll remember the closeness we had as a team, and the bonding we did," senior Taylor Johnson told The Capital. "In spite of the fact that we lost today, it doesn't take away what we've accomplished. We are still Arundel volleyball."
