Carroll County high school sports week in review: A look at the top players and performances (Jan. 22-27)

Team of the Week

Manchester Valley boys track and field

The Mavericks prevailed Saturday at the county indoor track and field championships by the slimmest of margins. They finished with 112.33 points, barely edging out second-place Winters Mill, which finished with 112.

The decisive .33 points came from Ian Linn, who cleared 8 feet, 6 inches in the pole vault, to get into a three-way tie for eighth and earn the winning points.

Honorable mentions

Century girls track and field: The Knights cruised to the girls county championship Saturday totaling 148 points, 39 ahead of second-place Manchester Valley. Century won eight of the 13 events.

Liberty boys basketball: The Lions earned three big county wins last week, beating Manchester Valley, Westminster and Francis Scott Key. The winning streak pushed the Lions into county title contention.

Manchester Valley girls wrestling: The Mavericks had three weight class champions — Faith Day, Layla Lagunas and Chloe Chwang — at the Patterson Mill Husky Open. Two more Mavericks were runners-up.

5-star players

Cailyn Stine, Century, track and field: Stine was the MVP of the county indoor championships, taking home four first-place finishes. Individually, Stine won the 300 and 500 meters. She also ran on Century’s winning 4×200 and 4×400 relays.

Christian Childs, Manchester Valley, track and field: Childs had two clutch wins in the Mavericks’ county championship, winning the 800 and 1,600-meter runs. Both races were crucial in the narrow team race as Winters Mill’s Jackson Steinbrenner was right behind him in both races.

Tristan West, Liberty, boys basketball: In the Lions’ three wins this week, the junior averaged 17.3 points a game, highlighted by a 21-point effort Thursday against Westminster.

JoJo Gigliotti, South Carroll, wrestling: Gigliotti, a returning state champion and one of the top wrestlers in the state, had a decisive pin in the final match as the Cavaliers beat Manchester Valley in a dual between the top teams in the county.

Benson Sommerfeldt, South Carroll, boys basketball: Sommerfeldt had one of the best games of the season with 19 points and 19 rebounds in Friday’s five-point win over Manchester Valley.
