Qualify for Nationals (03-27-2011)
The Red Tide started their quest for the VA State Championship Friday March 25th against Richmond’s Sportsquest at the Boo Williams Sportsplex. The Red Tide came out slowly as the starting time of was around many of the girl’s bedtimes. Still they were up 12-4 at the half.Sportsquest did not give up and tied the game at 19 with 5 minutes to go in the game. Coach D called time out and the Tide got it together finishing with a flurry and a 31-22 victory.
Next up for the Tide were the Winchester Rising Stars. The girls came to play and started the game on a 17-0 run. The Stars fought back and the girls held on for a 28-24 victory. Coach D said that although it was ugly “a win is a win”.
In the final game of pool play the Red Tide played a familiar foe in the Norfolk Express. The game was physical and tight throughout with the Xpress up 21-18 at the half. The girls played great D in the second half holding the Xpress to 8 points and finishing with a 39-29 win.The 3 victories against 0 defeats made the Red Tide the number 1 seed from pool B and a spot in the final 4 for bracket play.
Bracket play pitted the girls against this year’s most fierce rival, Evolve, another Boo Williams team based out of Suffolk. In 5 previous meetings the Tide held a 3-2 advantage in victories. The girls came out strong opening an 11-3 lead in the early going. Victory was never in doubt as the girls cruise to a 42-24 win and a spot in the championship game. On a sour note, the Red Tide’s leading scorer, Jah’keria Bagby, went down with a twisted ankle midway through the third quarter and did not return.
In the Championship game against the Windsor Stars, Jah’keria started but it was easy to see that she was in serious pain as the Red Tide fell behind 7-1 and 11-4. Jah’keria had to leave the game and the girls vowed to win for her. The girls went on a 12-4 run to end the half and taking a 16-14 lead. The game went back and forth throughout the second half with the Stars up 23-20 after 3 quarters. In the final quarter the 3’s started dropping and the Red Tide surged a 4 point lead with two minutes remaining. The Winsor Stars tried to send the game into overtime in the final seconds but the shot fell short at the buzzer and the Red Tide were AAU Virginia State Division I Champions.
