With a young roster, Western High’s girls basketball team has had growing pains this season. Despite the ups and downs, the Doves find themselves in a familiar position.

No. 13 Western won the Class 4A North Region I title Wednesday evening with a 46-34 victory over Dulaney in Baltimore City. Junior guard Maya Gray scored 14 points and Breasia Coit added 11.

The defending state champ Doves (17-5 overall) built a 13-point halftime advantage to advance to Friday’s state quarterfinals. Western will play at Prince George’s County’s Charles H. Flowers, ranked 15th in the District region by the Washington Post.

Paced by Iyanna Bell’s nine first half points, Western led 19-6 at halftime, holding Dulaney to just two field goals in 16 minutes. Gray, a returning starter, came to life in the second half, scoring 12 points.
