COLLEGE PARK – Although Magruder lost Saturday’s 4A state championship game to Eleanor Roosevelt, the Colonels found a future star in sophomore center Joe Hugley.
The 6-foot-6 dynamo finished with nine points and a team-high 10 rebounds in Magruder’s five-point loss to Eleanor Roosevelt.
“I had to do what I can to help my team win,” said Hugley.
COLLEGE PARK – Magruder came up short in its bid to capture back-to-back Maryland 4A state championships on Saturday night at Comcast Center.
However, the third time was a charm for the Eleanor Roosevelt boys basketball team who captured the Prince George’s County school’s second state title in a 61-56 victory over the Colonels.
COLLEGE PARK – The Magruder Colonels earned a trip to the Maryland 4A state championship game for the fifth time in school history by virtue of a 62-50 victory over Baltimore Polytechnic on Thursday at Comcast Center.
Magruder senior Justin Witmer led three Colonels in double figures with 17 points while classmates Nick Griffin and J.J. Epps scored 14 points apiece.
Dan Harwood, an elder statesman among Montgomery County boys public school basketball coaches, last week attended Einstein’s opening round playoff victory over Watkins Mill.
Harwood, a 1976 Peary High graduate and longtime Magruder head coach, had a personal interest in the contest since Einstein head coach Rich Porac once served as Magruder’s junior varsity head coach.
