Why doesn't Westminster try Holland at point guard? Owls girls team is struggling


February 03, 1993|By BILL FREE

Wouldn't an extremely quick and talented basketball player such as Brooke Holland make a good point guard for the Westminster girls basketball team?

The Owls (7-7) have struggled with as many as three point guards running the offense with Holland at the wing.

Holland is an excellent ballhandler, sees the entire floor, is unselfish and cool under pressure, can run all day and has a knack for being in the right place at the right time on the basketball floor.

She is also a good shooter and has a lot of enthusiasm for the game.

One has to wonder just how good Westminster might be with the ball in Holland's hands more often.

N. Carroll girls impressive

How has North Carroll girls basketball coach Greg Knill built such an outstanding program with so little fanfare?

Knill has the Class 2A Panthers ranked eighth in the metro area with a 13-2 record. The 13 wins are easily the most for any varsity basketball team in the county.

This 13-2 record comes after a 16-8 mark last season and a trip to the regional finals, where North Carroll lost by three to Middletown.

In three seasons as varsity coach, Knill has shown he knows how to win. He also is helping improve Carroll County's basketball image.

Liberty, N. Carroll looking

Why hasn't anyone been in a rush to take the vacant North Carroll and Liberty football coaching jobs?

The word at Liberty is that assistant Dale Greene will get the position if no one else applies.

Greene was the line coach under John Magee last season. Magee resigned at the end of the season to devote more time to his family.

The only supposed hang-up for Greene was whether he could juggle the head coaching job with his primary position at Spring Grove.

At North Carroll, no names have been thrown out for speculation, other than John Buchheister. Buchheister lives in Hampstead and had said he might be interested in moving to a Carroll County school. But he said a couple of weeks ago that he is staying at Randallstown.

North Carroll might have to turn to a coach who is not a teacher at the school.

When Randy Clark resigned as Panthers head football coach, he said he would continue to teach health at the school.
