Roland Park wins 12th straight in basketball
Roland Park continued its season-long rampage as the top-ranked Reds topped St. Vincent Pallotti, 64-53, on Saturday.
Roland Park, which trailed by a point at halftime, improved to 21-1 with its victory over the Panthers (12-9). Roland Park has now won 12 straight games and hasn’t lost since a setback to Bishop McNamara on Dec. 29.
Ja’Nia Henson set the scoring pace for the Reds with 25 points, while Maria Ferariu added 14 points. Whitney Robinson scored nine and Mir McLean added six for the winners.
McLean also had 24 rebounds, becoming the first Roland Park to have 1,000 career rebounds.
Jasmine Valentine scored 17 and Makayla Waleed added 13 points for the Panthers.
GERSTELL 76, ST. MARY’S 58: Anthony Carpenter scored 18 points to lead Gerstell to an MIAA B Conference victory. Ahmad Harrison scored 16 and Jeremiah Stanton added 14 points for the winners.
Peyton Mason and Patrick Devitt each scored 14 to lead St. Mary’s.
OAKLAND MILLS 94, HAMMOND 76: Daeshwawn Eaton scored 28 points, while DJ Hopkins scored 17 and Ke’Von Simpson added 16 to lead the Scorpions.
Michah Henry led Hammond with 25 points and Jaylen Wiggins scored 23.
WINTERS MILL 48, SOUTH CARROLL 29: Fellow sophomores Noah Ocasio and Luke Proffitt may not have figured on how important their matches would be in Saturday’s clash between rivals Winters Mill and South Carroll.
Ocasio and Proffitt, a pair of heavyweights, likely aren’t the first names that come to mind when breaking down the Falcons’ lineup.
Ocasio didn’t see much varsity mat time last winter; Proffitt is in his first year wrestling, and came into Saturday winless against Carroll opponents.
Yet theirs were the bouts that injected energy into the home team’s fans, and perhaps lifted Winters Mill to its second straight Carroll County Athletic League championship.
Pins from Ocasio and Proffitt in potential swing bouts gave the Falcons some momentum, and they turned it into a victory on senior night.
ANNAPOLIS 63, BOWIE 9: Nate Ditmars (138) scored a first-period pin against his opponent who who ranked higher in the state rankings, while Kyle Leming (195), Brandon Jackson (220) and Alex Ditto (285) each recorded pins to guide the Panthers over the Bulldogs.
Tate Scott (126) earned an overtime decision, and six forfeit victories were awarded to Annapolis.
