Westminster's girls basketball team, by virtue of its 41-37 Class 4A East regional victory at Old Mill Monday night, will be at home tonight (7 p.m.) for a semifinal matchup with Arundel.

Arundel (21-3), ranked No. 5 in the metro area and No. 13 in the statewide poll, returns several members from the school's state championship team two years ago. Th victory by Westminster (7-16) enabled it to halt a regular season-ending three-game losing skid.

A 40 percent shooter, junior Cathy Frame, a 5-foot-6 guard, might not have been a first choice to shoot what turned out to be the clinching free throws against Old Mill. But she came through with all her points on a 6-for-6 performance in the closing two minutes.

For the season, she complemented the scoring leaders by averaging four rebounds and 3.2 assists. The other leaders included junior guard Kyrica Frisby (9.8 points) and junior forward Kallie Smith (7.2 points and a county-high 8.9 rebounds).

Arundel counts on outstanding guards and some strength inside. The key guards are 5-6 senior Sherice Proctor (19.6 points, 3.5 assists) and 5-5 junior Megan Rollins (16.9 points, 4.5 assists).

Up front, 6-1 junior Shaunte Edmonds (10.7 rebounds) and Lindsey Schiesz (6.8 rebounds) are the top players. The other starter is Breanna Kitchen.

Two freshmen are the first ones off the bench, Jill Marano at guard, and Najmah Fauntleroy at forward. They are among five first-year players for the Anne Arundel County champions.

The winner will move on to the regional final Friday night against the winner of tonight's Meade-Severna Park semifinal.
