Afya Girls Dominate the Court

Posted September 07, 2016

It is not common knowledge that the Belair-Edison neighborhood has become a hotbed for girls basketball. The local Afya girls basketball team has finished in the championship game five years in a row. One year, a group of girls from Belair-Edison defeated the top program in the state, Riverdale Baptist, in a friendly game. Last year four starters from the previous team won significant minutes in ¬†high school basketball. This years team is captained by Nycera Pryor, a 7th grader who led the 2015-2016 team in scoring, assists, and steals. Pryor is also a regular on the Principals list and a member of Powermove AAU basketball. Afya doesn’t have a gym but head coach Scott Johnson says that all we need is heart and hustle and we will take care of the rest.
