Lowery, Wormacks repeat on All-City

CUMBERLAND — Half of the 2013-14 Cumberland All-City girls basketball team is back for seconds after Fort Hill’s Sarah Lowery and Allegany sisters Rachel and Micah Wormack were selected for the second consecutive season, joining Fort Hill’s Alexis Kimmell and Camden Wilson, and Bishop Walsh’s Hailey Mock on the six-person all-star squad.

The senior-heavy group has four players who played their final high school game in Kimmell, Lowery, Mock and Rachel Wormack. Wilson is making her first appearance as a junior, while Micah Wormack has made it twice and is only a sophomore.

The All-City team is decided by the head coaches of the three Cumberland high schools. The Campers and Sentinels split the league championship for the second-straight year, both going 3-1, with Bishop Walsh finishing third at 0-4.

• Lowery finished off her career at Fort Hill by averaging 15.3 points over four City games, which was right on par with the 15.3 she averaged over 22 games for the entire season.

She started the City season by scoring 18 points against Bishop Walsh before scoring a season-high 22 points in a loss to Allegany. Lowery scored her fewest points during Fort Hill’s 32-28 win over Allegany when she had seven points, but she had nine rebounds that night.

She recorded 14 points in her final City game during a win over the Spartans.

• The senior half of the sisters combination that gave Allegany the advantage in the paint over most teams, Rachel Wormack averaged 10.0 points in her four City games, which was ever so slightly above her 9.3 points per game for the year.

She scored eight points in Allegany’s City opener with Bishop Walsh before scoring 11 points and grabbing 11 rebounds during a 49-43 win over the Sentinels.

Her City-high game came during a loss to Fort Hill when she finished with 14 points, and Wormack had seven points in the Campers’ regular season finale against the Spartans.

• Kimmell seemed stuck in a loop during her first three league games by scoring nine points each time. She made four field goals and a foul shot in a win over Bishop Walsh, three field goals, with two three-pointers, and a free throw in a loss to Allegany and then two field goals, with one three, and four free throws in Fort Hill’s win over the Campers.

Kimmell finally broke the streak with 15 points against Bishop Walsh in the City finale. She averaged 10.4 points over the full season.

She had 10 rebounds to go with her nine points in the win over Allegany.

• Mock scored 22 points in the four league games to finish with an average of 5.5.

She scored nine points the first time she played the Sentinels and another nine the first time out against the Campers.

She posted an almost identical season scoring average of 5.4 points.

Mock scored in double figures three times and had a season-high 16 points during a 60-50 win over Paw Paw.

• The only junior on the All-City team, Wilson averaged 7.5 points after scoring 30 in four games.

She got 10 points in a win over Bishop Walsh and helped the Sentinels spilt the City championship with Allegany by scoring 11 points and adding six steals.

Wilson averaged 7.0 points in Fort Hill’s 22 games, breaking into double figures six times with a high of 14 points

• Micah Wormack ran away with the City scoring title by averaging 17.5 points against Fort Hill and Bishop Walsh.

After opening with 17 points against the Spartans, Wormack scored 10 and eight in splitting two games against the Sentinels before finishing with a 35-point effort at home against BW.

She set a school-record for rebounds in a single game with 23 at the Spartans’ expense in the finale. Her 35 points were the fourth-most in Allegany history, and the 13 free throws she made the same night were the second-most by a Camper in a single game.

On the night she scored 10 on Fort Hill, Wormack also had seven rebounds, seven blocks, five assists and five steals.

• Overall, Allegany finished the season 12-10, falling to the eventual state champion Southern Rams in the Maryland 1A West Section final. Fort Hill finished with an overall mark of 11-11, while Bishop Walsh made a seven-game improvement from 2012-13 to win nine games.
