Blair Harding, Poly, basketball( Kim Hairston, Baltimore Sun / January 23, 2012 )
(Jan. 25, 2012) The senior guard scored a season-high 24 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter, to lead the No. 6 Engineers to a 57-47 victory over Baltimore City rival and No. 7 Dunbar Harding, 5-foot-7, scored almost half of her points on free throws, going 11-for-13 from the line as Poly (12-0) shot 28-for-38 as a team. Her 3-pointer from the corner to open the fourth quarter sparked a 7-2 Engineers run that gave Poly the lead for good. Harding averages 9.5 points, 2.2 steals and 1.5 assist per game. A veteran of the Baltimore Charm Amateur Athletic Union team, Harding has drawn college attention from Bowie State, South Carolina State and Massachusetts-Lowell, among others.
