Fort Frye Girls Fall To Defending State Champs

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -

Marley Hill controlled both ends of the

court down the stretch to lead defending Division III champion

Columbus Africentric Early College to a 43-40 win against Beverly

Fort Frye in a girls' state semifinal on Thursday.

The Nubians (22-5) play for their fourth title Saturday at 10:45

a.m. vs. the Orville-Anna winner from later Friday.

Fort Frye's Shawntell Parsons missed a three-pointer from the

right corner with two seconds left that would have tied the game

after the Cadets (25-4) squandered a three-point lead through three

periods.

Hill, the Associated Press co-player of the year, scored four of

her 11 points, had four rebounds and two key blocks in the fourth

quarter as the teams exchanged the lead five times.

Deidra Combs led Fort Frye with 12 points.
