The Hopewell Girls basketball team had their biggest game of the 2023-24 season tonight.

The Vikings hosted the Beaver Bobcats with not only second place on the line but also some cushion in the section for a playoff spot,

The Hopewell community was challenged on social media the past few days to come out to Hopewell High School and support the Lady Vikings and the people in the community responded by nearly filling the gymnasium.

Tonight’s game was a defensive battle and a contest where Hopewell had to be mentally tough and come up big in key moments and they did both. Two big keys  to tonight’s win were free throws and rebounds.

*Following a steal at mid court, Maya Richburg was fouled on a layup attempt. She went on to make 1-2. Hopewell 1-0
