A pair of Montgomery runners swept the boys' and girls' 800 meter run.
Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School junior Brittney Wade put an exclamation point on what has been dominant season accentuated by her consistency.
Wade, who posts the state's best time this season, won the Class 4A 800 championship (2 minutes, 13.88 seconds) in a race that wasn't close, winning by nearly four seconds.
“I think the key to my consistency is just training really hard, hitting faster times in my workouts trying to get my time down,” Wade said. “My strategy was to just stay in the lead and I wanted to slow down on the curve of the 400 [meter mark] and just build up to my finish.”
On the boys' side, Thomas S. Wootton junior Joshua Trzeciak had a chip on his shoulder entering the Class 4A 800 meters championship after being overrun on the last lap in the 1,600 meters, finishing in third place.
Trzeciak took it out on the field in the 800, winning with a time of 1:54.50 after a furious push on the last lap in which he moved from fifth place to the lead.
“I was definitely running angry,” Trzeciak said. “Today I didn't do well in the mile because I didn't finish the way I wanted even though I ran a fast time. I didn't talk to anyone for a while I was so mad. I wanted to go out there and go as hard as I could. Whatever I could do, I just wanted to win.”
Gaithersburg senior Kaifa Boyce won the boys' triple jump with a 44 feet, 7.25-inch performance.
Wootton junior Gwen Shaw came from behind to win the girls' 400 meters (55.19 seconds).
Meanwhile, Shaw did the same thing on the final leg of the girls' 1,600 relay as she brought the Patriots from second to first as she, Casey Dowling, Grace Corbett and Sylvia Deppen won with a time of 3:53.06.
Northwest's girls nearly won its second-consecutive Class 4A outdoor state championship, but were edged by Bowie, 74-70. Other top 10 girls teams include Wootton (third, 55 points) and Bethesda-Chevy Chase (sixth, 34 points).
In the boys' Class 4A, Henry A. Wise won the meet with 60 points. Top 10 teams from Montgomery County were Clarksburg (fourth, 44 points) and Quince Orchard (fifth, 36 points). Wootton's Gwen Shaw is a junior and the name of Grace Corbett was incorrect.
