Cmc Wrestling Tourney Takes The Weekend Spotlight

SPORTS THIS WEEKEND -- COUNTY SPORTS EVENTS THROUGH SUNDAY

February 12, 1992|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Staff writer

Wrestling once again has the spotlight as the Central Maryland Conference tournament hits the mats at Frederick High Saturday.

North Carroll, fresh off its sixth consecutive county title, is the favorite-- but host Frederick may have something to say about that.

While the Panthers were having their way in the Carroll County tournament Saturday, Frederick successfully defended its county title at Linganore.

"We only beat them 30-27 in our dual meet," Panthers'coach Dick Bauerlein said of the Cadets.

"They're a solid team all the way up. They won the Smithsburg Invitational with Smithsburg init. That says a lot."

In other events this week:

* The North Carroll girls basketball team can move one step closer to a county title with a win at home against Liberty Friday.

The Panthers are 11-6 overall and 4-0 in the county. Liberty is 7-9 and 1-2 in the county.

The game features a matchup of the top forwards in the county, with Liberty's Kelly Foreman meeting the Panthers' Michelle Jeffrey. Foreman is the county leader in scoring (15.5 points per game), while Jeffrey is tops in rebounding (11.7 per game) and averages 10.6 points a game.

Westminster (8-9, 2-1) may be the only team with a shot at catching the Panthers. The Owls travel to South Carroll (3-11, 0-2) Friday and have meet North Carroll and Liberty once.

* The county boys race is a little tighter. South Carroll (9-7 overall) will enter Friday's game at Westminster with a 3-0 county record.

The Owls(7-10, 3-1) handed Liberty its first county defeat last Friday and would like to do the same against the Cavs. A win would give Westminster a share of the county lead entering the final week of the regular season.

Mike Downs and Scott Mills lead the way for South Carroll,combining to average 25 points a game. Downs leads the county in rebounding with just under 10 a game, while point guard Joe Goodwin is tops in assists at 7.5 a game.

The Owls are led by the consistent play of guard Calvin Warfield, who scored 17 points in Westminster's 64-56 win at Liberty.

Liberty (6-10, 2-1) also could have a say in the title race. It is at home against North Carroll (5-13, 1-3) and still has games against both South Carroll and Westminster.
