Drifters win three.......Drifters remain undefeated in Tidewater

The Drifters varsity basketball team [9-2, 3-0] produced a three-win week last week, as they maneuvered through the Tidewater district, while winning a non-district game at home. The Beach rolled over opponents with an average of 14 points per game. Using a half-court zone defense and role players coming off the bench, the Drifters are now beginning to assert themselves. “We battled hard this past week—we are starting to see some productivity from more guys on our roster—and we are slowly embarking on the team toughness it takes to win big road games” Drifters boys varsity head coach Steve Swope said.

Carey would later finish the game by scoring eight additional points in the third quarter; giving the Drifters a 42-36 lead.
