Severn’s Dickerson leads big performers
In last week’s holiday tournaments, three local girls basketball players had notable performances in helping their teams.
Reservoir’s Brianna Bradford scored 55 points in two games at the Sherwood Tournament. The senior point guard, who leads Howard County in scoring with a 24.8 average and is headed for Penn, hit for 29 in a 72-62 loss to Upper Marion, Pa., in the title game. The day before, she scored 26 in a 67-65 win over previously-unbeaten Wootton.
Fallston’s Jess Harlee scored more than half of her team’s points as she amassed 50 in leading the unbeaten Cougars to victory in their bracket of the North Carroll Holiday Hoops Tournament. The junior forward-guard scored 30 points in Friday’s 49-43 win over Notre Dame Prep and then hit 20 in the 47-36 title-game victory over the host team. She also had 40 rebounds – 20 in each game – as well as 14 steals.
The biggest total came from Severn’s Katie Dickerson, who matched the Admirals’ opponent with 37 points in the opening round of the Queen Anne’s Tournament Saturday. Dickerson hit 10 two-pointers and five three-pointers and went 2-3 from the line in a 76-37 win over North East. The Admirals have two more games to play, today and tomorrow, as the tournament continues.
