Carroll County Public Schools closed two hours early Friday because of inclement weather, and with that the first full slate of intra-county winter sports matchups was postponed.

Basketball was set to begin its Carroll portion of the winter schedule with six games — three boys games and three girls games.


On the boys side, Manchester Valley at Westminster is reset for Monday, and Winters Mill at Liberty is moved to Wednesday. The Century at Francis Scott Key game has yet to be rescheduled.

South Carroll was supposed to play at Fallston on Friday but the game was postponed and will be made up after the winter break.

The FSK-Century girls game is now slated for Monday, and Westminster-Man Valley is Jan. 2. Liberty-Winters Mill isn’t rescheduled yet.

The annual Bauerlein Duals wrestling event was set for Friday and Saturday, but now it’s tweaked to a one-day event Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. Wrestling will take place in five rounds at the former North Carroll High School.

The Marriotts Ridge-South Carroll wrestling match from Friday is postponed until Jan. 4.

Manchester Valley’s indoor track teams were scheduled to compete in the CCBC-Essex Invitational on Friday, but the meet has been canceled.

Saturday’s high school sports schedule is still a go for now — along with the Bauerlein Duals, Century, Liberty, and Westminster’s track teams are in the field at the Howard County Invite at the PG Sportsplex, while FSK, South Carroll and Winters Mill are set for the Dickinson Invite at Dickinson College.

Winters Mill’s wrestling team is part of a tournament at Boonsboro High on Saturday, a 16-man bracket format that gets underway around 9 a.m.

DeWees on cusp of exclusive milestone

The next point scored by Manchester Valley senior Mackenzie DeWees will gain her entrance into an elite club for Carroll County girls basketball.

DeWees is sitting on 1,699 career points, leaving her 84 away from becoming the all-time points leader in county history. North Carroll graduate Caitlin Bach is at the top of the list with 1,782 points.

Bach is the only Carroll player with more than 1,700 career points — for now.

DeWees began the season with 1,614 points and has 83 through the Mavs’ first three games of the year, an average of 28.3 points per game.
