Wakefield High School
Wakefield survived a tough VA Academy team from Ashburn, VA in the first ever Vantage Hoops Tournament held in Woodbridge, VA. VA Academy featured two players 6’10”. After being down 23-11 at the end of the first quarter, the Warriors out scored VA Academy every quarter. Led by Seniors Jonathan Adams and Deng Nhial (both 17 points) Wakefield got out and ran. Junior Alan Treakle scored 13 points, while Sophomore Amari Cooper had his coming out party with 9 points and 6 rebounds. But the tempo of the game was set by Senior Eric Martin (8 points). His second half defense set the tone and was key to the victory.
The Warriors are now 8-0 and are getting ready to host the 13th Annual George Long Holiday Hoops Tournament on December 28-30.
