Noah Batchelor, Glenelg Country, sophomore
Transferring into the program from St. Maria Goretti, the 6-foot-6 small forward wasted little time announcing himself as a force to be reckoned with. He scored 23 points in a season-opening win over Bishop O’Connell and never slowed down on the way to averaging a team-high 13.5 points per game playing against some of the state’s top players in the MIAA A Conference.
Batchelor ended up scoring over 20 points on six occasions, displaying an ability to score all over the floor. He proved himself particularly dangerous from beyond the 3-point arc, hitting 62 total triples on the season. He knocked down six 3-pointers in a one-point win over Archbishop Spalding, including a buzzer-beating shot that sent the game to overtime. He also hit the game-winning 3-pointer as time expired to defeat Seton Hall Prep at the Governor’s Challenge in December. “There are a lot of shot taker at every level of basketball, but shot makers are the ones that stand out. Noah is a shot maker,” Glenelg Country coach Garrett O’Donnell said. “When defense would help off of him, he would make them pay with a dagger three from anywhere beyond the arc.” He is already receiving extremely high level Division I college interest, including offers this past winter from Maryland, Georgetown and Memphis.
Jordan Brathwaite, Glenelg Country, senior forward. Finished third on the Dragons in scoring (9.4 ppg) as a starter on the interior. The team went 9-3 when he scored in double figures. Brathwaite posted a season-high 23 points in a win over Gerstell. He also had a handful of double-doubles, including a 15-point and 22-rebound effort against John Carroll in early February.

Building toward future success, Howard County JV athletes shine during winter season
Like every athletic season, this winter was filled with plenty of wins and losses for Howard County’s junior varsity programs. But just as important as the results on the scoreboard were the less tangible areas of growth that each area team underwent to set the stage for future success on the varsity level. In an effort to provide these athletes with some deserved recognition, we contacted each school through their athletic administration to find out about some of the highlights and top performers from the winter season. Here’s what we heard back:
Glenelg Country played its first MIAA A Conference schedule in three years and finished 10-9 in league play (10-13 overall), which was good for second place in the Black Division and a playoff berth. Sophomore captain Riley Reese was the team leader in practice and games, providing an emotional boost by taking an average of three charges a game. Freshmen Kamal Francis and Jaden French were the Dragons’ leading scorers. “Even though the team lost to Mount St. Joe in the playoffs by 11 points, the season was one that makes every Dragon proud,” coach Aaron Tolentino said. “Every player on a roster of 18 was instrumental in the team’s success and we are already looking forward to next season.”
