The Western Albemarle girls basketball team secured the title as Jefferson District champions for the second year in a row on Tuesday night. The team trailed rival Charlottesville at the end of the 3rd quarter, but roared back in the 4th to defeat the Black Knights 39-35.

The Warrior’s win can be credited to their strong play in the post. Forwards Sydney Sherman (11) and Caity Driver (11) went off for a combined 24 points and 17 rebounds. Sherman also tallied an impressive five blocks on the night. Senior point guard Elisabeth Coffman chipped in eight points and four steals as well.

“It was a really great feeling. We’ve been working really hard to get here. Our team motto is: leave no doubt. So we were really excited because that’s what we did,” said Driver when discussing the team’s championship game.

The game not only earned the team the title of Jefferson District champs, but also capped off their strong 23-2 regular season.

The team will now enter the Region 3C tournament as the No. 2 seed and will host Fort Defiance on Friday night.
