NR grabs first win

Published 8:17 pm Saturday, December 16, 2017

The Warriors boys’ basketball team got its first win of the season over Great Bridge High School on Friday.

It was a relief for the Warriors after starting off 0-4. They didn’t play their best basketball on the road but were able to come out with a win. They turned over the ball 20 times as a team. However, Great Bridge turned it over 23 times.

“It is always good to get a win no matter how you get it,” Warriors coach Ed Young said. “You feel good about the guys being able to overcome a sloppy game and get the win.”
