HCC gets third seed in JuCo tourney

Hagerstown Community College came away with a first-round bye for this week's Maryland JuCo Tournament.

It just might not be as high as the Hawks hoped.

HCC was seeded third in the 12-team field - two spots lower than coach Marlys Palmer was aiming for - but will be on the sidelines watching when the tournament starts today.

The bottom eight seeds play in four games at the home of the higher seed.

HCC will play the winner of No. 6 Cecil and No. 11 Chesapeake on Friday at 12:30 p.m. when the tournament shifts to Anne Arundel for the final three rounds.

The Hawks finished 11-2 in the conference, tied with Allegany for second, but the Trojans earned the higher seed by defeating HCC in an early-season game. Garrett, which gave HCC its other loss, is the top seed.
