MORGANTOWN — Reagan Sharp scored 22 points — including the 1,000th of her career — as Trinity Christian dropped an 83-63 girls’ basketball decision to Williamstown on Jan. 12.

Sharp hit a 3-pointer — the Warriors’ lone trey on the night — near the end of the contest and now has 1,002 points.

With the game out of reach at the time, Trinity coach Mike Baldy drew up a play to set up Sharp for a 3-point shot. But Williamstown came out in a zone that negated the plan. Instead, Sharp and the Warriors adjusted and she nailed the 3 anyway.

“They stopped the game,” Baldy said, “and all the girls and coaches from Williamstown came out to congratulate her. They were really great.”

Sharp is the second TCS girls’ player to pass the 1,000 mark this year. Emily Saurborn also achieved the feat.

The Warriors were done in by a 25-9 disadvantage in the third quarter.

“We just can’t put a complete game together,” Baldy said. “I’m having trouble with depth. The younger girls are coming along but the older girls are getting worn out, and that leads to major down quarters.

“We have a lot of expectations for this season. Right now, 6-5 is not where we wanted to be.”

Saurborn had 10 points, and Rachel Rosen netted 13 to go with nine rebounds.

Rosen “set a goal this year to average a double double,” Baldy said, “and after 11 games she’s doing that. We’re excited about that.”

Trinity travels to Blacksville to play Clay-Battelle on Jan. 16.

Mara Rinehart had 17 points to lead four Yellowjackets in double figures.
