The foundation for this year's girls basketball team at John Carroll was formed last summer when most of the players were part of a team that placed second in summer league action.Their school team, mostly juniors and sophomores, had gone 4-16, but the basics were there and, with the addition of several newcomers during the summer, the group developed a positive attitude."It really helped," said junior Meaghan Giorno, starting point guard, of the summer experience. "Our skills improved and our outlook was better.

The event at the Under Armour campus in Baltimore played out like a fashion show and felt like a pep rally - replete with a standing-room-only crowd, bass-pumping music, thundersticks, Ravens cheerleaders and dance moves by mascot Poe. The end result, though, was all charity. With one athlete from each team acting as a model, Under Armour and the Ravens on Wednesday revealed the new uniforms they're donating to the varsity football and girls basketball programs of all 24 Baltimore public high schools.

I'M NOT MUCH of a sports fan. But when a local high school girls basketball team wins the state championship, that's something to celebrate. And when a local girl becomes Player of the Year, it's worth a story. However, the real story is not about a player, but about a team. Jill Marano, a junior at Arundel High School, has been named Anne Arundel County Player of the Year by The Sun and the Annapolis Capital. She was also chosen for the all-metro girls basketball team and has been featured in newspaper and television stories.

Poly's girls basketball team has lived on the edge throughout the playoffs, but Thursday night the Engineers slipped off one step short of their goal, falling to Damascus, 49-37, in a Class 3A state semifinal at Towson University's SECU Arena. The Hornets, who lost to eventual champion Aberdeen in last year's semifinals, center their game around 6-foot-5 Kelli Prange, who averaged 21.4 points per game this season. The No. 2 Engineers held her to 15, but the Hornets puzzled Poly with their zone defense, dominated the defensive boards and moved the ball extremely well, creating openings inside and out. Damascus (23-3)

In her second season as coach of the Randallstown girls basketball team, Sharon Davis beefed up her early season schedule by adding No. 9 Woodlawn and No. 14 Chesapeake, of Anne Arundel County, both of which were state semifinalists in Class 4A last season. The Rams lost to both teams as well as to No. 12 Seton Keough and Mount de Sales at Catonsville's Comet Classic Christmas tournament, but playing tough teams seems to have paid off. Last week, Randallstown upset defending Baltimore County champion Parkville, 40-37, in overtime, and the Rams remain unbeaten in the county's hotly contested Division I. "The losses we had in the beginning of the season showed us our weaknesses," said Davis, whose team is 4-4 overall.

The Westminster girls basketball team faces its toughest opponent so far when it plays host to Frederick tonight. The No. 17-ranked Owls (9-0 overall, 2-0 league) are off to an amazing start for coach Dick Ebersole, but could raise their standing significantly with a victory tonight. Frederick carries a big reputation into this game for having beaten Dunbar, which had scored 100 points in four straight games, and for taking Riverdale Baptist, ranked No. 2 in the Washington area, into overtime before losing.

Poly, Milford Mill, Catonsville, Patterson Mill, Howard and New Town were among the girls basketball teams seeded No. 1 in their sections after yesterday's draw for seedings for the state tournament held at Long Reach High School. The brackets also solidify the timing for some anticipated rematches, including a possible third showdown between Poly and City, which are seeded first and second in Class 3A East Section I. There could also be a rematch of last year's state Class 1A championship game early in the tournament although it would be in Class 2A since last year's 1A champion Western Tech and Dunbar have both moved into Class 2A North.

Not long ago, a 5-foot-11 high school girls basketball player like McDonogh's Dajah Logan never would have brought the ball up court. Her job would have been to get inside, get open and take the feed. The taller you were, the less likely you were to be a guard. That started to change on the college level a while ago and now the trend has trickled down. Tall players, such as Logan, Aberdeen's 6-1 Stephanie Jones and Patterson Mill's 6-foot Qalea Ismail, are developing skill sets that allow them to excel in the back court and play multiple positions.

Aberdeen's No. 1 girls basketball team knows how to keep rolling no matter what happens to its lineup. Playing without four of the top eight players including two starters, the host Eagles easily handled No. 14 Patterson Mill, 75-51, in a key Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game Thursday night. When the two met on Jan. 10, the Eagles barely pulled out a 60-57 win, but that was right after the first big change to their lineup - their first game after 6-foot-3 senior center Brionna Jones, last season's All-Metro Player of the Year, suffered the torn anterior cruciate ligament that has sidelined her for the season.

Sports schedule 'not fair'From: Kathryn SeckEllicott CityI am writing in response to the June 7 article in the Howard County Sun ["Winter sports schedule changes get chilly response from some coaches," by Gary Lambrecht] concerning schedule changes for winter sports.OC As a student at Mount Hebron High School, I dislike the idea ofchanging these schedules.

Mona Jackson, a 1995 Howard graduate and a 2000 inductee into its athletic Hall of Fame, has been hired to coach Hammond's girls basketball team. "I'm very excited and eager to get started," said the 24-year-old Jackson, who will become the first woman to coach the team since the school opened in 1977. Jackson excelled in basketball and track at Howard, and played both sports while at Norfolk State University. She graduated with a degree in physical education and taught last year at Long Reach before moving this school year to Hammond.
