Fairmount Heights: State Champs After 36-Year Drought

Fairmount Heights High School won the Maryland boys 1A state championship Saturday, March 11 at the University of Maryland’s Xfinity Center, defeating Edmondson-Westside of Baltimore, 65-52, to capture the school’s first title since 1981.

“There are many people in Prince George’s County that think just because of where Fairmont Heights is located that nothing good is happening here,” said Fairmount Heights Principal Torrie Walker, who leads the school of 678 students in Capitol Heights. “Our students often feel like Fairmont Heights doesn’t get the recognition that we deserve, but this state championship will bring back the pride and respect that has been overlooked by outsiders.”
