TOWSON – Whitman guard Abby Meyers shouted encouragements at her teammates from the bench as precious seconds ticked away in the 4A West state championship game against Catonsville in the SECU Arena at Towson University.

Meyers had uncharacteristically fouled out of the game with under two minutes to go and was forced to watch from the sidelines as the Vikings tried to rally from a four-point deficit and claim their second state title in a row.

It wasn’t meant to be, however. Whitman senior guard Olivia Meyers’ last-second three-point attempt bounced off the backboard and Catonsville held on to win, 49-46.

Tigers Falter But Whitman Comeback Attempt Falls Short

  • Published in Sports

POTOMACA formula for winning basketball games on any level is good team defense, limiting turnovers and hitting foul shots.

When the Connelly of the Holy Child Girls Varsity Basketball Tigers (18-1) beat the Whitman Girls Vikings (24-3), 47-42, on Monday night at Holy Child gymnasium, this Tiger team played poorly on defense, did not limit its turnovers in the fourth quarter and was abysmal for most of the night from the foul line. Yet it still found a way to win.

The Tigers’ winning streak is up to 18, and it is one of the top teams in the metro area from the ISL, but Tigers head coach Jamie Ready had to address the foul shooting as the Tigers made only nine of 27 foul shots, almost snapping their winning streak. 

Ready knows her team has to figure this out moving forward. “You know it has been something we are definitely struggling with, and weve been working on it. … Like I said to them in the locker room, Im very proud of you. We found a way to win, and we got to figure out our foul shooting. We got to figure it out.”
