CHARLOTTE -- Freshman point guard Catherine Ford collected a game-high 19 points and No. 1-ranked Wayne Country Day throttled Statesville Christian 56-34 in the quarterfinals of the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association 1-A women's basketball playoffs Thursday.

The top-seeded Chargers (25-2 overall) face defending state champion Trinity Christian at 4 p.m. today at Charlotte Latin School.

Senior Brooke Norris contributed 12 points, while senior center Bridgette Briggs contributed nine points and 14 rebounds. Statesville played a box-and-one defense on Briggs, then switched to a triangle-and-two on Norris and Briggs. Neither scheme worked.

Kim Martell knocked down eight points. Sarah Best, Mack Thompson and Shelle Anderson also scratched in the scoring column.

WCDS converted 21 of 47 field goals and 8 of 13 free throws.
