Cambria Heights rolls Carroll

December 30, 2012
By Rick Weaver - For The Mirror

PATTON - Under normal circumstances, entering the championship game against a well-regarded program without two starters does not bode well.

So Jamie Snedden and what remained of the Cambria Heights Lady Highlanders took it upon themselves to put forth an extraordinary effort as they rolled past Bishop Carroll, 54-39, in the title game of the Cambria Heights Holiday Tournament on Saturday night.

Snedden, one of two seniors on Tracy Neff's young squad, scored a game-high 20 points and snapped down 17 rebounds. Eight of those boards came on the offensive end. She also came up with eight steals en route to winning the tournament most valuable player award.

"Snedden, this being her senior year, I think she wanted it bad enough," Neff said.

Cambria Heights entered the title game without Emily Crowell, who attended a wedding, and Ali Anna, a freshman point guard. The latter was not available the entire weekend.

None of that seemed to matter as the Lady Highlanders used an 8-1 rally to erase a 14-13 second-quarter deficit and assume a 25-17 halftime lead.

Neff agreed Saturday was as close to a complete game as his team has played this year.

"As a team we came together," he said. "People who filled in did an excellent job. They spread the ball around. They did a good job."

The Lady Highlanders stepped up the defensive pressure in the third quarter and was never seriously threatened from that point.

"We told them to play aggressive on the half-court match-up defense; just play aggressive and get your hands on balls," Neff said. "That's the most tipped balls we've had probably all season."

"We played as a team and we clicked," Snedden said.

Bishop Carroll (4-3) committed 31 turnovers, which Lady Huskies coach Crystal Horton attributed largely to a lack of patience.

"Our girls just didn't play how we should play," Horton said. "I'll give it to Cambria Heights; they attacked us. And our girls just didn't rebound like we should have. That's been an on-going thing with us. If we can rebound well I think it would have been a different game."

Cambria Heights, in keeping with its attack mode, earned 42 free throws and made 26. Carroll made good on 10 of 14 at the line.

Alli Farabaugh scored 13 points to lead the Huskies (4-3). She represented Bishop Carroll on the all-tourney team.

Jenna Lecorchick earned all-tournament honors after leading Northern Cambria to its first win of the season, 46-30 against Harmony in the third-place game. She scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers. Gabby Pizur contributed 13 points for the Lady Colts (1-4).

Harmony's Lindsay Welteroth (nine points) also made the all-tournament team.
