The Hagerstown Junior College women's basketball team clinched at least a tie for the regular-season championship Wednesday night, defeating Allegany, 77-66, at the HJC athletic complex.
HJC (20-6, 13-1) recorded its 13th win in a row and can clinch sole possession of the regular-season title Friday with a victory against Cecil Community College.
The Hawks won six regular-season championships during a nine-year period from 1983-91.
HJC freshman center Kim Reid led the way with 15 points, seven rebounds and three steals.
"I think that we have come together as a team a lot since the beginning of the season," Reid said. "I think there has been a tremendous amount of improvement. Our success has come from a total team effort. All of the players have stepped up and contributed in different ways."
