BOYS

Walter Hill

St. Paul's, basketball

The 6-foot-1 senior small forward was a success on both ends of the court for the Crusaders. Hill registered 10 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and four steals in a 58-39 victory over Boys' Latin in a semifinal of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference tournament last Thursday. The team captain followed that performance by posting 12 points, nine rebounds, five assists and four steals in a 69-55 defeat of Gilman in the championship. In that contest, Hill limited the Greyhounds' leading scorer, Scott Gehring, to 17 points. Hill's play was a major factor in St. Paul's improving to 19-5, claiming the No. 16 ranking in the metro area, and capturing its first MIAA title in five years.
