GIRLS BASKETBALL - Eagles hold Columbia to three baskets in second half, rally for the win
by: David Ball Damascus Christian guard Valerie Wakefield dives onto the court to track down a loose ball during the first half of Tuesday’s three-point win at Columbia Christian.

PORTLAND - The Damascus Christian girls basketball team had quite the mountain to climb Tuesday night, so at halftime the Eagles clamped on their hiking boots and got to work.

Trailing by as many as 13 points late in the first half, Damascus came out of the locker room with renewed focus and dominated the second half to rip a 32-29 win out of Columbia Christian's grasp. The Eagles had locked up the Valley 10 title heading into the game, but the victory gave them a perfect 16-0 run through the league schedule.

'We were 16-0 my freshman year, and it means a lot to be a senior and be a part of another one of those teams,' Damascus forward Kristen Wood said.

Look for the full story, and a look at the boys game, in the Feb. 8, edition of The Outlook.
