Junior guard Laura Ortiz led the Nansemond River High School Lady Warriors with 27 points en route to a 59-53 home win over Oscar Smith High School on Tuesday evening.

Ortiz had struggled recently, but followed up a 16-point performance in last Friday’s win over Lakeland High School with her best performance of the season. She also had six steals and five assists on Tuesday. Sophomore off-guard Aneka Yelverton provided most of the rest of the offense with 17 points.

Nansemond River (3-4, 1-0) returns to action on Dec. 27 for the Lloyd C. Bird Holiday Tournament in Richmond.
