CBHS JV girls’ end season on top

On Thursday, at the Drifterdome, for the second season in a row, the Colonial Beach girls’ junior varsity basketball team finished the season on top. In front of a packed crowd, the Drifters defeated Washington & Lee, 30-9. Meghan Seaman and McKenzie Conway both lead the Drifters with nine points apiece. Deniya Newman contributed to the win as she added nine points, and three assists.

The first quarter must have been a blur for the visiting Washington & Lee Eagles girls’ junior varsity basketball team, as the Drifters score 10 unanswered points in the first two and a half minutes. Eagle players Amy Saunders, and Kadeigh Gray combined for five points to close out the quarter.


While the Eagles offense was non-existent in the second quarter, the Drifters led by Conway with six points, scored an additional eight points before halftime.

In the third quarter, the Eagles offense finally came alive, as Rebecca Swanson and Teondre Brooks posted jumpers to extend their score to nine points. However, any attempt at a late rally against the Drifters 13-point (22-9) lead would be futile at this stage in the game. In the final quarter, the Drifters added eight points to seal their final victory of the season. The Drifters overall record for the season was 15-6.

One the principal secrets to Drifter success are the many coaches who unselfishly devote their time to the system. Drifter junior varsity head coach Audra Lucas has seen most of her players transition from the Northern Neck fall middle school league onto the junior varsity level. As an assistant with the Colonial Beach Middle School team, Lucas has help coach the team to three consecutive championships.

For aspiring athletes who wish to play on all three levels of Drifter basketball, Lucas is the perfect role model, as she also serves as an assistant with the varsity team. After losing five key varsity players to graduation, the Drifters will rely heavily on the junior varsity program to provide skilled players to fill crucial positions. The 2012-2013 winter sports season will be an interesting transition for Drifter athletes.
