Sophomores  Brett McLaughlin and Joe Robinson combined for 30 points on Friday as Gerstell Academy edged Baltimore Lutheran, 36-34, in overtime to claim the Carroll County schools first ever basketball victory in the MIAA C Conference.

Gerstell entered the MIAA last summer, along with Cristo Rey, and the Falcons had immediate success in the fall, capturing the MIAA C Conference soccer crown.  The going has been a little tougher this winter on the hardwood, but the ice is now broken.

McLauglin finished with a game-high 16 points and Robinson netted 14.
