The inaugural 757 Middle School Classic took place at Atlantic Shores Christian School this past weekend, featuring some of the top youth talent from schools in Norfolk and Portsmouth.
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity to compete,” Ruffner head coach Wesley Phelps said following the event. “We were able to see where we were before the season kicks off.”
Ruffner, who finished runner-up in Norfolk last season, swept both of their opponents on Saturday in dominating fashion. Phelps will count on a dynamic trio of Saniyah Glasgow, Kumya Johnson and Lakira Whaley. After running away from Cradock in the event’s opener, Ruffner were able to get past a talented Churchland team featuring standout class of 2023 prospect Anjanae Richardson. Ruffner will tip-off the 2018 regular season with home contest against Azalea on Thursday.
Norfolk Christian was also a team that certainly impressed during the event, walking away with a 2-0 record with wins over Churchland and Waters Middle School. Cradock boys and girls also participated in the event.
We will have more from the inaugural 757 Middle School Classic later this week!
