Greater Grace 45, Calvary 41

BALTIMORE — Fifth-seeded Calvary Christian got off to a good start, but fourth-seeded Greater Grace picked up its intensity on defense and defeated the Eagles in the second round of the Maryland Christian Schools State Tournament.

Jessica McCarter scored 18 points and Julia Chandler and Madeline Weyer had nine each as Greater Grace (17-3) advanced to the semifinals.

Karly Hipsley had another double-double in her final high school game, getting 12 points and 15 rebounds to lead Calvary (17-9). Brooke Ricker added six points and seven rebounds.

The Eagles got off to a quick start and led 11-4 in the opening minutes. They still led 11-8 after the first quarter, but Greater Grace was up 18-14 at halftime and extended it to 33-20 after three periods.

“We came out and played well in the first quarter, and held McCarter to four points in the first half with our box-and-one defense,” said Calvary coach Rusty Kitzmiller. “But they pressed us the whole game and we didn’t handle it as well as we could have in the second half.

“It was a tough way to end the season. It just wasn’t meant to be. But we finished 17-9 and the girls accomplished a lot this year and I’m very proud of them.”

McCarter scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half to help Greater Grace pull away.
