BEL AIR, Md.—Sophomores John Schwarz (Perry Hall, Md./Perry Hall/Mount St. Mary’s) and Jamar Cooper (Petersburg, Va./Petersburg) and freshman JoJo Woodruff (Capitol Heights, Md./Wise), who were named to the MDJUCO All-Conference teams last week, have been named to the Region XX All-Region teams, the region announced today. Freshman Denard Dickens (Williamsburg, Va./Warhill) was also named to the Region XX All-Tournament Team for his performances as Harford wrapped up the 2010 season in the Region XX quarterfinal and semifinal games.
Schwarz, who was named First-Team All-Region, led Harford in the regular season as he averaged 14.2 points per game, was second on the team with 8.1 rebounds per game and third with a .503 field goal percentage. Cooper, a Second-Team All-Region selection, led the conference with 3.8 steals per game and also ranked in the top five with 6.0 assists per game while ranking third on the team with 12.5 points per game. Finally, Woodruff, a Third-Team All-Region pick, finished the regular season as the second scorer on the team with 13.3 points per game and shot just under .700 from the free-throw line.
Dickens led Harford with 17 points and also tallied five steals in the Owls’ 92-77 semifinal loss to Cecil, while tallying 10 points the day before in Harford’s 99-82 quarterfinal win over CCBC-Essex. The freshman tallied 27 points off the bench in 27 minutes over the course of two games while shooting .500 (9-for-18) from the field and .625 (5-for-8) from beyond the arc.
The 2009-10 Harford squad finished the season with a 16-9 record, its best since posting a 20-8 record in the 2006-07 season and though the Owls’ conference season was cut short due to snow cancellations, their sixth-place MDJUCO finish is the best in school history.
Schwarz led the Owls on the season with 14.4 points per game and also tied freshman DaMonte Vales (Akron, Ohio/Firestone) with 8.1 rebounds per game, while ranking fourth with a .505 field goal percentage. Cooper led Harford with 6.1 assists and 3.8 steals per game, while ranking third on the team with 12.8 points per game.
Woodruff was second, behind Schwarz, with 13.0 points per game as well as second with 4.3 assists and 0.9 blocks per game, while Dickens led the Owls with a .459 3-point field goal percentage.
