All-Time MSA champions

The Maryland Scholastic Association was formed in 1919 and dissolved in 1994, giving way to the current MIAA. The MSA was a storied athletic conference comprised of Baltimore City and County public and private schools. Once the City public schools joined the MPSSAA in the early 1990s, the MSA ceased to exist. The original information below was compiled by Mac Kennedy and has been updated by Sheldon Shealer. The list remains in need of additional research and documentation, especially on the level below the A Conference, where a majority of the City’s public school programs played.

      I’m not even sure if there was a C conference. I seem to remember Mitch Tullai from St. Paul’s suggesting there was at one point. So I’m leaving that column out there, just in case.
