HAGERSTOWN — Savannah Reed had a game-high 18 points, was clutch at the free-throw line and had a strong defensive game as well in leading third-seeded Calvary past fourth-seeded Faith in the consolation game of the Mason-Dixon Christian Conference Tournament on Saturday.
Reed, a senior, hit five field goals and 8 of 10 free throws, had seven rebounds and seven steals and was named to the all-tournament and all-conference teams.
Kerenne Shaffer, a sophomore, also had a huge day with 19 rebounds, seven steals and four points for the Eagles, who are 16-8 overall and finished 9-6 in the conference.
Karly Hipsley added nine points and joined Reed on the all-conference team.
Reed scored 11 points in the second quarter to help Calvary to a 19-11 halftime lead. She had six in the third quarter when the Eagles stretched their lead to 33-18.
“Savannah had three great games in the tournament and Kerenne has been just incredible inside and on the boards,’’ said CCA coach Rusty Kitzmiller. “Chesni and Mikala Ultis have been playing outstanding defense, and we played great team defense again today.
“I’m proud of the team and the 16 wins. We’re playing pretty well and now hope to make a little noise in the state tournament.”
Hannah Dopson and Olivia Stoddard had six points for Grace. Amanda Demeses, a 6-foot-2 center who had 12 points in a regular-season win over Calvary, was held to only four.
Calvary is the No. 10 seed in the Maryland Christian Schools State Tournament and will play at No. 7 Covenant Life in Gaithersburg on Monday at 5 p.m.
Covenant Life is four times the size of Calvary in enrollment. The Eagles beat Covenant Life in the 2002 state final, 51-34, which gave the Cresaptown school the first state championship in school history.
Second-seeded New Life, which beat Calvary 39-29 in Friday’s semifinals, upset No. 1 Shalom on Saturday to win the Mason-Dixon Tournament.
