Fluvanna County’s girls basketball team made massive steps this year, overcoming the loss of at least two starters by growing up and playing together.
That process continued Tuesday as the Flucos gave state power Spotswood trouble early before falling 73-48 to the Trailblazers.
The Flucos struggled against Division I target Stephanie Ouderkirk, a 6-foot-1 junior, who finished with 24 points, going 12-for-13 from the free throw line.
Nakaila Gray finished with 18 points on the night for the Blazers while Kenzie Freeze had 11 points including three 3-pointers.
Fluvanna got 12 points from Nevaeh Bishop and eight from Keke Davis, with the Flucos’ usual leading scorers struggling to find a rhythm against a Spotswood team well-known for playing suffocating defense. Nevaeh Ivory finished with five points and Mya Wright finished with three. Jules Shepherd and Khamare Steppe each had six.
Albemarle’s boys basketball team fell to Patrick Henry-Roanoke 55-51 in the Region 5D tournament.
Point guard Dasaun Taylor finished with a team-high 18 points and four assists. Myles Ward scored 12 on the night.
The Patriots finish the season with a record of 20-7.
Madison County’s boys basketball team fell 66-47 to East Rockingham in the Region 2B tournament. Elijah Lewis led the Mountaineers with 12 points and Jaisiah Warren had 10.
Madison’s girls team also fell to East Rock, losing 59-46. Sophia Adams had 11 points to lead the Mountaineers while Makayla Arrington chipped in nine points.
