Catonsville girls basketball coach Mike Mohler and the players that were on the Comets’ state championship team last March were not the only state champions on the court between a boys and girls practice at Catonsville High last week. While the girls were going through layup drills, new Catonsville boys basketball coach Teron Owens was lecturing to his team after practice. Owens, who took over for Matt Fannon, is not just a former player who graduated from Catonsville High in 1992 — he also played on the state championship team 25 years ago. The 1992 Comets joined the 1928 boys team as the only basketball state champions. Owens had two of his finest efforts in the final two games of that state championship season. In the state semifinals, he had 31 points, 10 rebounds, six steals and four assists in a 72-46 win over Duval. In the win over Potomac in the state championship game, Owens scored 17 points and had 12 rebounds and four assists as the Comets rallied from an 8-point deficit in the final 2:26 for a 70-69 victory. Owens would like the under-sized 2017-18 Comets to adopt some of the same qualities of that state title team. Pictures from a Catonsville boys basketball practice at the school on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

The only returning players back from last season are seniors Shawn Wagstaff (6-feet, 2 inches), Amori Guadeloupe (6-3) and Mark Chambers (6-3). Guadeloupe is coming off meniscus surgery on his knee. All three veterans, as well as the other 10 players on the roster, are listed as
