Glenelg Country continues roll

January 31, 1995|By Katherine Dunn | Katherine Dunn,Sun Staff Writer

For the second time in as many seasons, a Glenelg Country School's girls team has won an Association of Independent Schools B Division regular-season championship.

A 46-33 win over Lutheran Thursday gave the Dragons basketball team a 5-0 record in the league and clinched the top seed for the tournament. Overall, the Dragons are 11-3.

This follows a remarkable fall season for the field hockey team, which finished 11-3-1 and took second in the B Division tournament.

It is no coincidence that both teams have the same leaders, Robin Zimmerly, who scored 19 against Lutheran, and Allison Hoke.

"Robin and Allison are seniors who have been there for four years," said Dragons coach Barbara Brummett. "They really are leading the team. They're both averaging around 10 points."

Exchange student Sonia Fernandez-Martin has given the team a boost as well. She scored 18 against Lutheran and had 11, as did Zimmerly, in last Tuesday's 33-20 win over Seton Keough's AIS entry.

The Dragons have two games remaining before the AIS tournament gets under way next week. After playing host to Pompeii this afternoon, the Dragons travel to Oldfields Thursday at 3:45 p.m. Oldfields, which moved to the A Division this season, should be out to avenge a pair of losses to the Dragons during field hockey season.

Bears' Top 10

Junior Kellye Townsend has joined some elite company in Hammond's Top 10 in career scoring. After her 18-point performance Friday night, the junior has 572 points and stands 10th on the list.

Townsend actually cracked the Top 10 in December. With 13 points in the Golden Bears' win over Old Mill, she knocked Colleen Nickerson (453 points) out of the 10th spot.

The addition of Townsend places three current players in the Bears' all-time scoring Top 10. Tiki Nicholson stands fourth with 1,032 points and Tameka Harrison (791) is eighth.

All five players who started on last year's state championship team are now in the Top 10. Kacy Williams (Georgetown) leads the list with 1,193 points with Sonia Keiner (Towson State) right behind at 1,108.

Shooting for dollars

No wonder Mount Hebron's Kathy Doyle is scoring so many points this season. Her father, Mike Doyle, will donate one dollar for each of her points to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

The Vikings' senior says her father didn't have to part with much money last winter when he first started making the donation. But this year is a different story. Doyle already has scored 244 points and, with at least eight games left, her father will be writing a big check.

Quick recovery

Chapelgate Christian evened its record at 8-8 Saturday afternoon with a 51-47 win at Annapolis Area Christian.

In the win, the Flames played their "finest offensive game of the season," said coach John Curran, whose team led, 28-18, at halftime.

Joy Brouillard and Faith Meisinger each scored 14 points, and Heather Davison added 11. All three have played key roles as the Flames have won four of their past five games.

Brouillard, a junior transfer from Damascus, has emerged as a solid point guard after the Flames lost their starter early in the season. Meisinger has bounced back from tendinitis in the elbow of her shooting arm to average 14.7 points over the past three games. Davison has averaged 12 points the past three games.

On Jan. 21, the Flames avenged an earlier loss to Lanham with a 35-31 victory in which Meisinger scored 17. Two weeks before that, the Flames fell to Lanham, 32-25.

Friday, the Flames face another tough test when they play host to Rock Church, the defending Maryland Christian Athletic League champion. Rock is unbeaten in the league this season and the Flames are 4-1.

High game

This week's high game came from Hammond's Harrison, who scored a season-high 20 points in Friday night's 62-45 win over Wilde Lake.

Mount Hebron's Doyle and Glenelg Country School's Zimmerly each had 19-point games last week, and Hammond's Townsend, Wilde Lake's Kristen Riismandel and Glenelg Country's Fernandez-Martin each had 18-point efforts.
