A day to remember at the Siegel Center and a night to remember for one of the best girls basketball players this decade in the RVA, as our Top 10 Moments Countdown continues.
#4: TRIPLE PLAY AT VOLLEYBALL: The Siegel Center was the epicenter of celebration for Patrick Henry, Deep Run, and Cosby boys volleyball as all three teams won their respective state championships. For Patrick Henry, it was a second straight title after moving down from Class 5 to Class 4, sweeping Midlothian in three sets for another ring. After downing Class 5 power Princess Anne in the state semifinal, the Deep Run Wildcats succeeded Patrick Henry as Class 5 champions, defeating Indian River in four sets. The afternoon concluded with Cosby taking the Class 6 title with a four-set victory over Frank W. Cox, who had eliminated James River in the state semifinal.

#3: BOYD BALLS OUT, BREAKS RECORD: Teams will double team, and triple team, Appomattox Regional Governors School rising senior Jada Boyd, and usually to little success. But nothing could stop Boyd on January 10th, her first game since before winter break, as Boyd broke the single-game Virginia High School League record for both points (69) and rebounds (33) in the ARGS victory in overtime, 79-77. Exactly one month later against Greensville, Boyd scored 66 points and grabbed 18 boards. She already has more than 2,000 career points. It will be amazing to watch her continued progress when the 2018-19 season begins in late November. As for her next home, she plans to announce her college choice before the start of the regular season.
