It was a great week for Tandem varsity basketball. On Tuesday, our varsity girls' basketball team had a big win - and first-time-ever win - over Randolph Macon Academy, defeating them 58-37. 8th grader Alana Carter-Johnston scored 21 points (she is averaging 26 points per game), Stella Lane scored 16, and Maya Goldstein put up 9 points. That put their season at 7-1 - first place in the conference. Later that night, the varsity boys defeated RMA's boys by a score of 73-50.
