The Colonial Beach Drifters Varsity Basketball team became regular season Northern Neck District Champions Friday night against Lancaster High School at Lancaster. The low-scoring game, 40-37, brought the Drifters home to ride the point with a police escort as well as a large number of cars.
Lights, sirens, and horns a blazing as the team took the traditional route, down the river and up the bay, as people at home flashed their porch lights to cheer the Drifters on.
This followed a Wednesday night game at the Drifter Dome against the Washington and Lee Eagles. The Drifters won 75-70 in a standing-room-only packed gymnasium.
The Drifters move on to regional play this week with games on Monday and Wednesday.
