Profile: Blue Ridge Middle Girls Basketball

Last season the Blue Ridge Middle girls basketball team finished 2nd in the North Region, but went on to win the county championship behind a team loaded with 7th graders.  Expectations were high for the Tigers in 2018 and they delivered, winning region, going undefeated and defeating Hillcrest Middle to claim their second consecutive county championship.

Quadaija Langley paced the Tigers early, scoring 17 of her game high 21 in the 1st half and staking the Tigers to a slim one point lead.  In the 3rd quarter Maggie Strout exploded, scoring 12 of the Tigers 14 points as Blue Ridge outscored Hillcrest 14-2 to take a commanding lead.  The Wildcats tried to rally late behind Lauren Wearbon's team high 17 points, but the Tigers got key defensive stops late and held on for the  victory and back to back titles.
