Third time’s a charm for CBMS Lady Drifters

For the community of Colonial Beach, they are truly a ray sunshine. On Wednesday at the Drifterdome, the Colonial Beach Middle School girls basketball team accomplished the memorable feat of winning their third Northern Neck District Championship in row by defeating the Northumberland Indians, 46-25.

“We started out with a earthquake, and later at the beginning of school we had a hurricane that brought flash floods,” Colonial Beach Elementary School Principal Julia Britt said. “This team kept our spirits up by consistently winning, and this championship was something for everyone to look forward too.”

The Drifters withstood a potent Indian attack led by Rajaa Sheloazz, who scored 23 points, while scoring over 50% at

the foul line.

On the winning side, the entire starting Drifter lineup consistently crashed both the offensive and defensive boards at will. On the floor, point guard Jordan McGuinnis, and forward Heather Parsons harassed the Indians with turnovers (steals), which lead to fast break opportunities. Drifters reaching the three digit game milestone were forward Deniya Newman (16 points), shooting guard Kenzie Cox (10 points), and center Meghan Seaman (10 points).

Elated over her first year, Drifters Middle School girls’ head coach Marisa Jacobs said, “From the start to the final game the girls have had an awesome season. The last three years have been simply amazing. We had a lot of new girls that stepped up, complimented by new players that transferred in. I am really proud of them.”

In the first quarter, the Drifters, led by two steals from McGinnis, opened the game with a 5-0 run. While Cox added four points from the mid-range area, Newman and Seaman combined for 11 points to extend the Drifter lead to 17-3 to end the quarter.

With the Drifter cheerleading team screaming from the bleachers, Newman blasted by opposing Indians with an additional seven points to increase their lead at half-time a 28-6.

In the third quarter, the Indians began to show signs of life as Sheloazz single handedly pushed the Drifters to the brink with steals, and deflections. She also recorded three trips to the foul line, while scoring a total of five points to cut the Drifter lead to 36-16.

Sheloazz’s brave performance continued into the fourth quarter; however, it was not enough, as the Drifters withstood a Indian nine-point rally to score 10 points of their own. After an assist from Newman to Seaman for a lay-up, the game was over, and the Drifters accomplished a dream come true—a perfect 12-0 season, and their third district championship in a row.

Northern Neck District semi-finals
The Northern Neck District championship against the Washington & Lee Eagles was no walk in the park for the Drifters.

After the Drifters ran up a 4-0 lead to start the game, the Eagles responded with a 7-3 run. Eagle guard Alexia Wilson lead the charge with four points. At the end of the first quarter the visiting Eagles led 7-8.
The second quarter proved to be a clinic in defense for the host Drifters, as they controlled  the offensive and defensive boards. The Drifters scored an additional 12 points courtesy of Seaman, Newman, Parsons, and Shelby Modlin.

In the third quarter the Drifters held the Eagles scoreless. Parsons was relentless as she aggressively stalked opposing Eagle ball handlers. Combined with Eagle turnovers, and stalling for time, the Drifters ended the quarter with a sizeable 25-13 lead.

In the final quarter, with the end in sight, the Drifters continued to suffocate the Eagles with scoring from both foul line and field. Forward Collie Sexton scored the Drifters final points with a jumper to win the game, 36-19.
