Defense is the name of Glenelg Country School's game, and yesterday the Dragons showed why by routing visiting Seton Keough, 34-17, in girls basketball.Gracia Walker, Stacey Lay, Robin Zimmerly, Megan Duzor and Allison Hoke used their court smarts, swiping the ball, intercepting passes and forcing the Gators into poor shot selection.The Dragons' sticky man-to-man defense was a primary reason the Gators shot 0-for-18 in the third quarter, 3-for-34 in the second half, and 8-for-62 overall.Both private schools play in the Association of Independent Schools B Division.

At Glenelg Country School, a strong middle-school feeder system for field hockey is a mixed blessing for coaches Patti Ordonez and Barbara Wolf.Unlike the county public schools, Glenelg Country, which plays in the Association of Independent Schools B Division, has a feeder system.Its eighth-grade team was so strong last year it beat Roland Park, whose varsity has won or shared the last three AIS A Division championships and has been to the title game six straight years. That should bode well for the Dragons' future.
