seize road victory
SNOW HILL -- Charles B. Aycock celebrated Luke Vail's return to the girls' basketball scene with a season-opening 55-33, non-conference victory over Greene Central on Tuesday evening.
Vail last coached the Golden Falcons in 1999.
Quanesha Milner buried four 3-pointers and poured in a game-high 23 points for Aycock. Emily Stewart contributed eight points and 10 rebounds, while Erin Medford pulled down a team-high 11 boards.
The Golden Falcons outrebounded the Rams 35-33.
"We were giving away a lot of size, we're more quick than big, but they stepped up really well," Vail said of Stewart and Medford. "The real positive thing is we only had 15 turnovers. For a running team and first game of the season, I thought we played well overall.
"We were a little streaky. The girls played with intensity, hustle and enthusiasm all through the game."
Brianna Stanton paced the Rams with 17 points.
