— CUMBERLAND — Micah Wormack had one of the greatest statistical games in the history of Allegany girls basketball as the sophomore helped the Campers secure a share of the Cumberland City title by belting Bishop Walsh 81-10 to finish their regular season Saturday afternoon.

Wormack broke her sister Leah’s school single-game rebounding record of 21 by finishing with 23 boards, all while scoring the fourth-most points and sinking the second-most free throws in Campers’ history.

Her 35 points trail only Leah’s 41-point performance, Tammy Long’s 40-point night and Teandra Smith’s 39-point showing. The 13 points at the foul line are the most by any Camper not named Tracey Little, who made 16 free throws against the Spartans in 2000.

Wormack also managed to add four blocks and four steals to her totals.

Tallia Logsdon added six rebounds and five assists in the win, and Rachel Wormack had seven points, eight rebounds and five assists. Freshman Erin Michael added eight points.

Maggie Mathews led Bishop Walsh with six points.

Kaylee Buckbee scored 24 points in Allegany’s 49-9 junior varsity win.

Allegany (11-9), ranked fourth in the latest Times-News Poll, awaits today’s Maryland 1A Playoff draw to determine its next opponent.

No. 5 Fort Hill 39, Northern 29

CUMBERLAND — Seniors Sarah Lowery and Alexis Kimmell had double-doubles in their final regular-season home game to power Fort Hill past Northern.

Northern led 9-4 after one quarter, but the Sentinels took the lead in the second and were up 19-13 at the half and 26-17 through three quarters.

Rhiannon Dodge hit a pair of three-point shots and had 11 points for Northern (4-17, 1-10).

Faith 41, Calvary 32

HAGERSTOWN — Karly Hipsley became the second girl in Calvary Christian Academy history to have 1,000 rebounds and 1,000 points, but a messy second quarter was too much a hole for the Eagles to dig out of during a nine-point loss to Faith in the consolation game of the Mason-Dixon Christian Conference Tournament.

The teams were tied at seven following the first quarter, but Faith outscored the Eagles 10-0 during the second to carry a 17-7 lead into halftime. Faith led 28-20 after three quarters, and though Calvary got as close as three points on a couple of occasions, the Falcons made 11 of 15 at the foul line to stay in front.

Hipsley worked in nine rebounds with her 15 points to pass the 1,000-rebound plateau and join JoJo Carr as the only girls in school history with 1,000 in both points and rebounds. She scored her 1,000 point three weeks ago and now sits on 1,005 career rebounds. Hipsley was also named first-team All-Mason Dixon Christian Conference and was a first-team All-Tournament selection.

Payton Emerick had 12 points and 11 rebounds, and was named second-team All-MDCC. Brooke Ricker added eight rebounds.

Ally Romine and Hannah Dopson scored 11 points each in the win, with Caroline Cassell adding eight.

 Calvary (16-8) enters the Maryland Christian School State Tournament as the No. 5 seed and will host Carroll Christian on Monday on Senior Night.

Petersburg 64, Moorefield 43

PETERSBURG, W.Va. — Brittani Bible had a game-high 23 points and added 10 rebounds for a double-double to push Petersburg by Moorefield in the Vikings regular-season finale.

Bible made 10 field goals and all three of her foul shots and then cleaned the boards 10 times to lead Petersburg in that category. Samantha Rohrbaugh connected for five 3-pointers and scored 18 points, and Lauren Flemming added 15.

The Vikings pulled away from the Yellow Jackets all evening, getting out to a 19-10 advantage after the first and 34-21 lead at halftime. They led by 15, 52-37, after the third.
