The Nansemond-Suffolk Academy girls’ basketball team has gotten its 2015-16 season off to a strong start.
The Lady Saints began the year by participating in the Virginia Episcopal School tournament over the weekend and won the event.
They defeated Williamsburg Christian School 61-42 on Saturday afternoon in the tourney title game and reached that stage by routing The Covenant School on Friday evening 79-42.
Entering the tournament, NSA had only three days of practice with the full team because several members were still finishing up the fall volleyball season.
“All things considered, I thought we did really well,” Nansemond-Suffolk coach Kim Aston said. “This year we are lot stronger in the ball handling department, and Harper (Birdsong) has a lot more help offensively, so it changed the dynamic of the game from last year to this year, but it changed for the good.”
