Boys’ Hoops Team Opens State Tourney Tonight at Home

DSC_4910Get the homework done early or head straight from work to The Treehouse for the varsity boys game tonight at 5:30 p.m.

The Oaks, seeded, fifth in the state, play 12th-seeded Covenant School from Charlottesville in the opening round of the VISA Tournament.

Norfolk Collegiate fell to Walsingham in the semifinal of the TCIS Tournament on Friday at Hampton Roads Academy, but the team, 23-5 on the season, has a chance for redemption in the state tournament.

This will be the final home game of the season. Wear your royal blue and white and get their early to support what has been a stellar campaign.

The Big Man, Brandon Self, and Mr. Everything, Vince Thomas, will be playing their last home contest.
