Girls basketball

February 25, 2003|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,SUN STAFF

Four three-pointers and 6-for-6 free-throw shooting helped Chrissy Starcher score a career-high 26 points as sixth-ranked Glenelg upset visiting, second-ranked River Hill, 51-40, in a Howard County girls basketball game last night.

The 5-foot-8 senior, who dedicated her effort to a friend who died in a car accident last year, also grabbed seven rebounds and had four steals in a game that was played on Senior Night before a season-high 600.

"They kept leaving me open and I just kept on shooting, but I never expected to play this well," Starcher said.

Glenelg (18-3 overall, 15-2 league) now must win at Wilde Lake tomorrow and hope for River Hill to lose today at Mount Hebron in order for the Gladiators to earn a share of the county title with River Hill (18-3, 16-1), which can win it outright with a victory.
