As the only team to advance from the Village News coverage area to the state tournament, the L.C. Bird Girls’ basketball team earned a first round match-up with tournament favorite Princess Anne at Old Dominion University.
The Central Region runner-ups fought hard the whole way but fell to Princess Anne 50-41. The Skyhawks finished their season at 21-8. Taja Cole, who led the way for Bird most of the season, had 22 points and 12 rebounds in the loss.
Still a young team with good postseason experience, Bird has much to build on for 2013-2014.
