Saturday local roundup - Frederick can't three-peat


POTOMAC, Md. - In hindsight, the chances of a Frederick High three-peat in Class 4A West really were never possible. After all, you can't win a game if you never lead it.

It happened to the Cadets on Saturday against Churchill, which took control at the opening tap and stayed there for a 55-52 victory.

"We cut it to two three or four times," Frederick coach Todd Bono said. "But we never even tied them. They went to a zone and it really hurt us offensively. We had a lot of trouble with that."

Behind is a spot the Cadets rarely saw in 2001 on their way to 20 straight wins, but they never let Churchill get out of sight either. Frederick (21-4) missed a layup to tie with 15 seconds to go, but got the ball back only to watch Maria Brown's jumper also miss the mark with seven seconds to go.


"We just didn't shoot the ball well from the field," said Bono, whose team went 19-for-46 from the field. "I think we were a little hesitant. Nichol (Means) took 11 shots. She probably hadn't done that all year. But she took charge in the fourth quarter."

Means finished with a season-high 12 points, while Brown had 13 and Ashley Bush had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four steals in her final prep game.

"It's going to be weird with (Means and Bush) not being here," Bono said. "They've been a huge part of the success here at Frederick High."


Brown 13, Andrews 4, Hood 7, Reidy 2, Means 12, Bush 14. Totals 19 13-20 52.


Freeman 18, Feve 9, Adams 6, Hatten 18, Holland 2, Phillips 2. Totals 23 7-8 55.
