All 3 Bethesda Girls Basketball Teams Still In Hunt For Region Title


Two of Bethesda's three public high school girls basketball squads will get a chance to end two-time defending state champion Gaithersburg's reign this week, as Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Walter Johnson and Whitman open up 4A West Region Semifinal games on Wednesday. B-CC (11-13) will get the first crack at the defending champs when they travel to Gaithersburg for a 7 p.m. tip tomorrow. If the Barons can pull off the upset of the No. 1-seeded Trojans, an all-Bethesda Region Final awaits. In the other Semifinal set for tomorrow, No. 3 seed Walter Johnson (18-5) will travel to No. 2 seed Whitman (19-4). Whitman beat Walter Johnson twice in the regular season by a combined seven points, but Walter Johnson has won eight straight, even after losing its star center Kristen Larrick to a knee injury. Both B-CC and Whitman fell to Gaithersburg in the regular season (Whitman lost at the buzzer). Walter Johnson, though, was able to pull out a 53-49 win against the champions back in December.
