Bishop McNamara became the first team in four years to start and finish No. 1 in The Post's top 20.

It was a season of milestones for McNamara (32-5): The Forestville private school captured its first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, City Title and Bishop Walsh Tournament championships.

In the City Title Game, which pits the top Catholic school against the District's public school champion, McNamara played almost flawlessly. The Mustangs scored a City Title-record 91 points in its 42-point victory over Woodson.

McNamara is the first school since 1999, when West Springfield went 30-0, to begin and finish the season ranked No. 1.

"It's big," McNamara Coach Michael Bozeman said. "You try to keep a sense of humbleness because you don't want to sound arrogant or give another team locker room material. But at the same time, you don't want to take away from the effort of the girls . . . This team has got to be compared to some of the best in the area."

The Mustangs' run to the three titles did not come without much fanfare and off-court distractions. Bozeman, who completed his fourth year directing the program, was suspended during the postseason for scheduling too many games. And, the loss of two players -- one of whom transferred to another school -- also created a diversion.

But McNamara persevered, ending the season with a 22-game winning streak.

"We set high goals at the start of the season that we wanted to accomplish," said senior guard Genet Moore, who scored 18 points in the City Title Game.

Theodore Roosevelt (19-1) posted its best season since capturing the D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Conference championship in 1989 and earned a No. 5 ranking in The Post's top 20 -- its highest ever.

Roosevelt, which started all sophomores, registered victories over reigning DCIAA champion Dunbar -- twice -- and three-time Independent School League champion Bullis.

"Even though we didn't make it to the City Title Game, we had a remarkable season," Roosevelt Coach Tyrone Pittman said. "You can't take anything away from what we accomplished."

Walkersville made the most of its only appearance in the Maryland 2A final by defeating DuVal, 40-32. The victory secured the Lions' first ranking in The Post's final poll. They finished eighth.
