For Jackie Valderas, basketball isn't just part of her life, it's part of her family. Seton Keough's 6-foot All-Metro center doesn't remember specifics about basketball in her early years, just that the sport was always there. Her mother and father played the sport. So did all of her aunts. And all of her uncles. Basketball runs in both sides of the family, so much so that she should soon become the fourth member of her clan to score 1,000 career points in high school. Her father, Mark, and uncle Robert Valderas, each scored 1,000 points at Cardinal Gibbons and went on to play professional basketball in Puerto Rico.

For Seton Keough senior Jackie Valderas, last night's 67-37 win over neighborhood rival Catonsville typified the Gators' entire girls basketball season. Since the first day of practice, the Gators have battled adversity. They fought to overcome the death of teammate Meghan Puls, who died in September from injuries suffered in an automobile accident. They fought to overcome the deaths of two team grandparents. Last night, they also fought to overcome Saturday's 45-42 upset loss to Archbishop Spalding in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship.

Bryn Mawr's girls basketball team has made up some big deficits this season, but the No. 11 Mawrtians didn't have quite enough to close the gap against No. 1 Seton Keough last night. Three times, the Mawrtians rallied from 10 down, but in the final 30 seconds, Kristen McLaughlin and Jackie Valderas hit enough free throws to keep the host Gators on top and secure a 42-39 victory in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference semifinal. The Gators (22-4) will meet No. 4 Archbishop Spalding for the crown tomorrow night at 6 at Villa Julie College.

Seton Keough had only a short trip to last night's championship game of the eighth annual Comet Classic. Using a defensive scheme designed to slow down the running game, however, the No. 3 Gators made it a long night for host No. 8 Catonsville in a 53-45 win. All-Metro forward Jackie Valderas scored 15 points helping the Catonsville-area private school team outscore the neighboring Comets, 25-12, over the final 10 minutes. "We knew that the key was defense," said Valderas, named tournament MVP. "They have a lot of good offensive players, so we knew that if we could [contain them]

Not much seemed to be working offensively for Seton Keough seniors Jackie Valderas and Sara Franz early in yesterday's game against No. 15 St. Mary's. The No. 3 Gators couldn't get the ball inside to 6-foot center Valderas while Franz struggled from the perimeter, but when it came to crunch time, the duo came through. Each made a critical play late in the fourth quarter to force overtime and each scored four points in overtime to lead the host Gators to a 51-43 victory in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference contest.
