Broadneck earned its first trip to the regional finals since joining the 4A East, thanks to 24 points from Nikki Curtis and 12 points and 12 assists from Diana Davidson, knocking off Meade, 62-50, yesterday.

"I think we're playing well right now," Bruins coach Bruce Springer said. "We shot the ball really well and our defense really carried us again, as it has all season." The Bruins' defense did a solid job limiting Nicole Dailey, one of the area's top scorers, to only five field goals. Dailey did finish with 18 points, but Broadneck built a 33-20 halftime lead behind Curtis, who went 11-for-20 from the floor while pulling down 13 rebounds.

Broadneck, which moved to 17-7 on the season, will travel to heavily-favored No. 2 Arundel, a 77-49 winner over No. 20 Westminster, tomorrow for the regional final. Arundel swept the Bruins during the regular season.
