THE WRAP: Atlee Girls WIN Boo Williams Title; Hanover Boys Get Win in Henrico Holiday Hoops....

Free throws in the final seconds prove to be the difference and the young Atlee Raiders girls basketball team emerges victorious in their division championship at the 2013 Boo Williams/Ronald Curry Christmas Classic, 51-50 over Bayside!

The Raiders, winners of four straight, improve to 5-3. They were led by emerging star Cierra Shelton with 22 points, while Shelby Hill, who hit the game-winning free throw, added 13. Shelton was named Tournament Most Valuable Player, while Hill was named to the All-Tournament Team.

Meanwhile, the Hanover girls fell short in the championship of the Clover Hill Holiday Tournament, losing big to Conference 20, and former Capital District rival, Glen Allen 75-22.

In boys action, Hanover took its second win in nine days over rival Atlee in the 7th Place Game in the 2013 Henrico Holiday Hoops Tournament Saturday afternoon. Shaking off an uneven first half, the Hawks cooled off a hot-shooting Raider squad with a full-court press to turn a 38-36 halftime deficit to a 75-59 victory.

Jalen Elliott had 23 points for Hanover (6-4), who were led by Cutch Ellis' 24. Jordan Wade added 11. Brian Miller had 23 points for the Atlee Raiders, who have lost seven straight after starting 2-0. R.J. Jenkins added 12.
