ASHBURN — Sherando’s girls basketball team used a solid defensive effort to pick up a 42-34 victory over South County in the first round of the Maroon and Gold Classic at Broad Run High School on Thursday.

Junior guard Audra Sites led Sherando with 15 points and 15 rebounds, while junior forward Heidi Brown finished with seven points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors. Junior guard Jessica Hakel chipped in nine points and nine rebounds for Sherando.

“It was a good win for us,” Warriors coach Mike Marsh said. “We’ve had some easy wins this season, but this was one that was tight the whole way through.”
