W&L Eagle basketball teams head to Rivalry Tip Off Tournament

The Washington & Lee boys and girls basketball teams head to Lancaster  Saturday for the Rivalry Tip Off Tournament optimistic about the 2014 season.  The W&L girls will play Colonial Beach at 10 a.m. and the boys will play Colonial Beach at 12 noon.  

“We return four starters and look to compete every night with anyone,” said Eagles boys head basketball coach George Hunter. “I expect good things from this team.”

“The boys have been active this summer attending team camps as well as some players playing on various AAU teams. The Northern Neck District is always one of the toughest districts in the state and it doesn’t get any easier this year”

“The Lady Eagles have a new energy about them,” said W&L girls coach Elizabeth Beckham. “The returning players have been working hard in pre-season and are ready for the challenges that they will face this year.”

Both the boys and girls W&L teams under-performed last season but a strong core of returning players has both Hunter and Beckham hopeful that things will improve this year.

The W&L boys return a number of key players from last season, including Treshaun Brown, a junior guard who was All-District and Jeremy Turner, a junior post player who was 2nd team All-District. Both Brown and Turner just began practicing this week after being part of the W&L Eagles football playoff run.

“We will be a little behind because those players and seven others were on the football team,” said Hunter. “But I believe we will be able to compete night in and night out. I’m very excited about this team and I’m blessed to be able to coach these young men.”

The W&L girls have seven returning players including sophomore Alexia Tate and juniors Alexis Washington and Amy Saunders. Top newcomers this season will include sophomore guards Lorena Luna and Jahania Remington.

“The newcomers have also transitioned well and are developing a strong sense of teamwork,” Beckham said. “The girls have been willing to put in the hard work. That’s what any coach wants to have in a team.”

Both coaches believes their teams will be ready for the always competitive Northern Neck District play this season.
