SoVaNow.com / January 24, 2013
The winless skid for the Halifax County High School varsity girls’ basketball team continued Tuesday night in Roanoke.

The Comet girls fell to 0-6 in the WVD and 7-11 overall, as William Fleming trounced HCHS, 86-30.

Antavia Stephens of Fleming had a triple-double, with 11 points, 12 assists and 11 steals. Ryjae Anderson led Fleming with 19 points. The Fleming girls are 12-5 overall and 4-1 in the WVD.

Fleming took control early, outscoring the Comets 17-8 in the first period. Fleming led at the half, 43-13, as Halifax managed only one field goal in the second period.

The Comets dropped to 7-11 overall.

Six Comets got on the board, as Briyana Jackson led the way with 13 points. Janiyah Logan had six, while Whittney White and Brittani Boxley had four apiece.

The Comets are on the road tonight at PH-Roanoke. The high school action has been moved forward one night to avoid expected winter weather Friday.
