Girls Fall at Academy

DSC_2315After being down by only a point at halftime, Collegiate surged into the lead in the third quarter behind the strong inside play of Shahra Madison, but could not hold it, falling 42-35 to the Norfolk Academy girls team.

Madison, the only Oak in double figures, poured in 19 points. But the Oaks had trouble feeding her the post during the fourth quarter, frustrated by the ‘dogs defense.

Peyton Fancher chipped in seven points and had the game’s only three-point field goal.

The girls play at the Steward School on Friday.
