Area Roundup - Powell sets MVAL scoring record

February 11, 2003

GIRLS BASKETBALL



THURMONT, Md. - Smithsburg's Katy Powell became the all-time scoring leader in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League, going for 27 points, eight rebounds and four assists in the Leopards' 61-50 loss at No. 9 Catoctin on Monday night.

"I think it's a tribute to my teammates and being able to share the ball and get points through the offense we run," Powell said. "I don't try to do anything special, I just play in the offense and get my points when I can."

Powell needed 13 points to break the previous record of 1,116 held by Catoctin's Tammy Joy, and passed the mark in the second quarter. Powell currently has 1,131 points in MVAL games.

"(Catoctin) stopped the game," Smithsburg coach Jimmy Powell said. "We didn't really tell anybody, but their coaches were aware of it. Their whole team came over and shook her hand, and it was nice. On the road, you don't make a big deal out of it, but it was nice."

Powell broke the Smithsburg career scoring mark earlier this season, but said she doesn't put much weight on the milestones.

"I'm not really a records person, I'm a wins and losses kind of person," Powell said.

The only returning starter from last year's Class 1A state finalist team, Powell has had to take over a leading role on a squad filled with underclassmen.

"I think I really had to step up this year and lead more than I had to do in the past," Powell said. "I had to carry the tradition and lead the younger kids. We're going to surprise teams down the road (in the playoffs), we're starting to gel."

Katie Beth Williams had 12 points, Sara Wastler had 11 and Sara Diercks had 10 for the Cougars (9-5, 9-4).

Tara Bywaters had nine points and six rebounds for Smithsburg (11-6, 8-5).
