Gaithersburg, Calvert win girls state basketball titles

March 12, 2011

Gaithersburg polished off a 25-0 season by defeating Wise, 53-38, to win its first state championship.

The Trojans were led by junior forward Jackie Jackson's 15 points and 14 rebounds.

Last year, the Trojans lost the title game to Arundel, but the Montgomery County team made it all the way through this time thanks to Jackson's performance and the strong play of guards Kara and Colleen Marshall, who combined for 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Sarah Seipp, who had 10 points and nine rebounds.

Eliqua Brooks scored 22 for Wise (21-6) of Prince George's County.
