Parity is the buzzword in Anne Arundel, as more than half the teams in the league look like legitimate contenders for the county championship.. . . Annapolis returns only one starter, but transfers Stickler (Oak Hill) and Delaszo Smith (South River) should keep the Panthers near the top of the league.. . . Behind senior guards Brandon Spain and Clarence Watkins, and senior forward William Brown, Glen Burnie expects to accomplish its 14th consecutive winning season.. . .

Senior guard David Nicholson (13 ppg) leads a deep Arundel backcourt that also includes Austin Carroll and Darien Bryant.. . . Old Mill returns a solid senior class that includes guards Gavin Salmond and Josh Savage, and forwards Davon Jackson and Brian Hinton.. . . Cornish – who played at St. Paul’s last year and recently committed to High Point – and sophomore guard Corey Martin (Mount St. Joseph) headline a group of incoming transfers for a North County squad that will be dangerous if the new players mesh.. . .

Solomon – a first-team All-County pick last season – is the only returning starter for defending county champion Broadneck.. . . Meade has increased its win total in each of the last three seasons, and behind junior guard Aaron Brown – the county’s leading returning scorer with 18 ppg last year – the Mustangs could be a sleeper.
