February 16, 2005|by JACK HILL III/Staff Correspondent

WILLIAMSPORT - The Catoctin Cougars assured themselves of at least a share of their second straight MVAL Antietam championship Tuesday night with a 56-38 victory over the Williamsport Wildcats.

Senior point guard Sara Wastler was the leader in setting up Catoctin's defense and offense. She got eight of the Cougars' 23 steals, had seven of the team's 15 assists and added 11 points.

"We worked hard this season," Wastler said. "Having a new coach, we weren't sure. But she has been an awesome coach. We have jelled well together."

Wastler also made a pair of 3-pointers to set a school career record with 38.

Emily Balogh poured in 21 points and Kate Robinson scored 19 points for Catoctin. Robinson added 10 rebounds and six steals, while Becky Cuddahee made four steals.


"I have 14 very hard workers, which is exactly what you want," Cougars coach Amy Murray said. "They work hard in practice and then that pays off come game time. You can see that chemistry working together both on and off the court."

Chrissy Minnick finished with team-high totals of 13 points and 13 rebounds for Williamsport.
