The North Cross girls basketball team wound down their season with a strong win over Chatham Hall 59-31 Tuesday night at North Cross. The team celebrated senior night with only one senior on the team, Victoria Langhorn. With one more regular season game scheduled for Thursday night at VES, the Raiders are 10-11 and hope to finish at an even 50% at the end of the week. Winning half of their games, played against private and public schools, is a victory for the Raiders with this being their first girls varsity team after a two year break. Senior Victoria Langhorn was instrumental in getting the girls program going again, along with Coach Shannon Yopp. Yopp has enjoyed the team camaraderie and tenaciousness that this team possesses. Though the loss of Langhorn will be substantial, Yopp is expecting big things from her team next year now that they have many players with Varsity experience. The team already has plans to go to a summer basketball camp and plans for open gyms, meaning the Raider girl’s  basketball team is not only back but here to stay.
