WOMEN'S BASKETBALL



McHENRY, Md. - Two missing starters and a poor free-throw performance were ingredients that spelled defeat for Hagerstown Community College on Friday at Garrett Community College.

HCC dropped a 72-61 decision to Catonsville Community College in the quarterfinals of the Maryland JuCo Conference Tournament. Catonsville was the No. 2 seed entering the tournament.

The Hawks (15-11) were missing Kim Davis and Nicole Brown (team violations) and suffered at the line, making just 17 of 34 free throws.

Kristy Gaines paced HCC with 15 points and Kristy Long added 14 points and a team-leading nine rebounds.

"We did a good job attacking in the first half," coach Marlys Palmer said. "They became a little more aggressive in the second half and took advantage of our turnovers."

HCC led 32-26 at halftime but Catonsville went on an 8-0 run to start the second half.

"We got behind in the second half and maybe we panicked a little," Palmer said. "I praised them for their effort and how they stepped up with the players we were missing."

GIRLS BASKETBALL



Rockwood 52 McConnellsburg 39


ROCKWOOD, Pa. - McConnellsburg let second-half momentum get away in the closing minute of the third quarter and it cost the Spartans the chance to advance in the District 5 Class A tournament.

McConnellsburg (14-11), which was hampered by an injury to Molly Schooley, chopped a 30-18 halftime deficit to five with 1:30 to go in the third quarter. But the Spartans failed on the chance further cut the deficit which allowed Rockwood to push out to an 11-point lead which they never recovered from.

Steph Paylor led McConnellsburg with six points, four assists and four steals while Darcy Everetts had 13 points and eight rebounds. Schooley missed the game after undergoing surgery earlier this week.
