* 14-year-old girls -- The Anne Arundel County-based Maryland Waves began their Amateur Athletic Union season last weekend by winning the Lady Cougar Classic in Pulaski County, Va. The tournament featured top-rated teams from Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.

Saturday's competition included victories by the Waves over the North Carolina Flames, the Virginia Vogues and the host Lady Cougars.

The Waves' 3-0 record placed the girls in the championship game on Sunday against the 3-0 Tennessee Trojans. The game took on added significance because it was the Trojans who eliminated the Waves from the 1993 National AAU Tournament last summer in Knoxville, Tenn. The Trojans went on to finish ninth in the country while the Waves finished 17th.

This time, however, Maryland would not be denied. Behind a game-high 16 points from Cara Consuegra and 14 points from Heidi Moldenhauer, the Waves defeated Tennessee, 54-43.

Shannon Cohen scored a team-high 16 points in the Waves' win over North Carolina and Howard County resident Chanelle Carter added 13.

Carter paced Maryland with 14 points in its win over the Vogues and Howard County product Rene Hines added 13.

Consuegra led all scorers in Maryland's win over the Lady Cougars as she posted 16 points. Britney Whitehust added 10 for the winners and Moldenhauer scored nine.

Other countians contributing to the success of the Waves were Sarah Brino and Erin Wilmer.

On Friday, GORC defeated the Annapolis Optimists, 48-40. Guard James Bowen led the Wildcats with 18 points and nine rebounds.

The Wildcats recorded two wins on Saturday as they defeated the host Annapolis All Stars, 41-27, and Fort Meade, 69-49.

Bowen and Norris Roy both scored 12 points in the Wildcats' victory over the All-Stars and Mike Isler scored five points and grabbed eight rebounds. Kris Lundborg and John Houchens played solid defense for GORC.

In the second game, Lucas Esop led the Wildcats with 19 points and seven rebounds. Roy chipped in 15 points for GORC and Isler, Derick Dixon, Monte Campbell and Jermine Gross scored 10, eight, six and two points, respectively. Kenny Takota helped the Wildcats control the boards against the taller Fort Meade team.

In Sunday's championship game, GORC defeated the All-Stars, 53-44. Esop again led the way for the Wildcats, this time with 18 points. Isler chipped in 10 and Roy and Dixon added nine apiece.

* 9-year-old boys -- The regular season of the HCYP boys basketball league ended last weekend with Miami (10-1) clinching the league championship with a 33-25 victory over UCLA (6-5).
