January 19, 1995|By Rich Scherr


* 10-year-old boys -- The Hawks of the Howard County Youth Program sit in first place in both the Gray-Charles and Catonsville leagues.

On Saturday, the Hawks improved to 4-0 in the Gray-Charles League with a 31-10 win over Gray-Charles at General Stricker Middle School in Dundalk. Brian Hedges paced the offense with eight points while Matt Hashimoto and A.J. Berens contributed with good defense and rebounding.

Then, on Sunday, the Howard team improved to 3-1 in the Catonsville League, defeating the Howard County Sabres, 28-15, at Catonsville Middle School.

Jeff Hill and Andy Starr combined for 12 points while Mike Taneyhill and Tim Lane played well on defense.

The Hawks are tied for first place with the Columbia Jaguars.

* 12-14 girls -- The Church of Resurrection team had an easy time in two games last week.

The Howard County team first defeated St. Augustines, 45-4. Alexia Vogler led all scorers with 14 points, followed by Rachel Gigueri (eight) and Jackie Llano and Jennifer Westervelt (six each).

Becky Porter, Stacie Tokasz and Meredith Grecie also contributed offensively.

Then, in the St. Mark's Saturday League, Vogler scored 17 and Westervelt added six to lead Resurrection to a 34-13 win over St. Mark's.

* 16-18 boys -- With the final seconds ticking away, Freddy Jones, a player for the New Creation team, hit an underhand desperation three-pointer against double-coverage to give his team a 35-34 win over the Wheaton Panthers in a Christian Fellowship Basketball League game.

The game was close throughout, with teams trading baskets for the final few minutes. Wheaton took a two-point lead with five seconds left before New Creation (2-0) advanced the ball to half-court and called a timeout.

With three seconds to play, Jones took the inbounds pass along the sideline and was trapped by two defenders. With nowhere to go, he threw up a wild underhand shot that found its mark.

Karl Sorrell led the victors with 13 points and Tory Robinson added 10. L.J. Goode led Wheaton (1-1) with nine.

First Baptist of Guilford improved to 2-0 with a 71-50 win over the Woodlawn Warriors.

Irving Conwell led First Baptist with 17 points, Phil Mackey had 15 and Shawn Hill, Michael Bright and Tim Spruill added 10 each. Mike Williams scored 20 points for Woodlawn (1-1).

Wayland Baptist improved to 2-0 with a 52-44 win over Pleasant Grove; Isle of Patmas (2-0) got past Brown Memorial, 52-36; First Abyssinia beat Gillis Memorial, 40-35, and the Woodlawn Spurs edged City Temple, 47-44, in overtime.

* 15-and-under boys -- Jabraille Jackson used his potent inside-outside game to score 16 points and Greg Gray added 11 points and clutch rebounding as First Baptist Church of Guilford's Blue Team held on for a 34-30 win over Banneker this past weekend in the Christian Fellowship Basketball League.

Up 10 points at halftime, First Baptist (2-0) let the lead slip to two with 19 seconds left, but Gray sealed the win with two foul shots in the final seconds.

First Baptist's defense played an integral part in the game, as guards Antwaun Oliver, Jamar Wise and Derrick Jordan combined to hold Banneker's Kamal Mabrey -- the division's leading scorer -- without a point.

Gary Sneed (nine points) and Ronald Keves (six) led Banneker (1-1).

It was also a good day for First Baptist's Red Team.

First Baptist got 13 points from Teron Gary and eight each from Levear Owens and Jerry Oliver to handily defeat Woodlawn, 52-28.

First Baptist (1-1) used a full-court press to create numerous Woodlawn turnovers early in the game and took a 23-11 lead at the half.

Corey Cooper and Ike Walker led Woodlawn (1-1) with six points each.

Mount Royal improved to 2-0 with a 43-26 win over Wayland Baptist, and Bible Way defeated City Temple, 35-26.

* 13-14 girls -- The 1981 Howard County Youth Program Cougars had mixed success this past weekend, splitting two games.

The team started things off in grand style with a 44-9 win over St. Joseph's in the Loch Raven League. Stacie Tokasz led the victors with 16 points, Colleen Cox had 12 and Tia Richardson added eight.

On Sunday, however, HCYP dropped a 32-29 nail-biter to Severna Park A in Arbutus League action.

The Cougars fell to 1-1 in the Arbutus League.
