Girls basketball roundup: Mt. Hebron hands Bel Air first loss

Tori Valentine and Eve Chase each registered double-doubles and Mt. Hebron led from start to finish en route to handing Bel Air its first loss of the season on Monday evening.

The Vikings, which bounced back from a four-point loss against Reservoir on Friday, improved to 5-5 overall this winter.


“They were pretty athletic, but we had a good day,” Mt. Hebron coach Tierney Ahearn said. “[Our team] really responded well from last week.”

Valentine spearheaded the dominant effort by the Vikings with 24 points, 15 rebounds, six steals and five assists. Chase, though, was right behind her with 16 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and three blocks.

Already ahead by 12 points at halftime, Mt. Hebron really opened things up by outscoring the Bobcats 17-7 in the third quarter.

In the loss, Autumn Dougherty led Bel Air with 15 points.
