Hampshire tops Elkins

Trojans win 54-36, hosts Martinsburg Tuesday

ROMNEY, W.Va. — A strong first half gave Hampshire a 13-point lead that the Trojans were able to carry through the second half as part of a 54-36 victory over Elkins to win the West Virginia Class AAA, Region II, Section 2 championship Friday at home.

Tori Veach led the team in scoring and rebounding with 11 points and six boards. Alexis Nickleson added 10 points and five steals, and Mary Feaster scored nine points. Ericka Gordon scored eight.

The Trojans led 17-10 following one quarter and 33-20 at halftime. Elkins trimmed two points off during the third quarter to make it 41-30 before Hampshire turned up the defense in the fourth.

Elkins got eight points from Ashley Simmons.

“The girls played really well in the first half,” said Al Straley, Hampshire’s head coach. “In the second half, we were able to sit in our 2-3 zone and they couldn’t hit their outside shots.”

The Trojans have won five of their last six games to improve to 11-12. They play Martinsburg at home on Tuesday in the first round of the region playoffs.

New Life    39

HAGERSTOWN — Calvary was held to nine second half points in a loss to New Life in the Mason-Dixon Christian Conference semifinals at Grace Academy Friday afternoon.
