Stephanie Seaman has had a memorable season for Williamsburg Christian Academy's girls basketball team.
The freshman guard led the Eagles to their fifth straight Metro Conference regular season title and a No.1 ranking in the Virginia Independent School Athletic Association Division II poll. Earlier this month, Seaman scored her 1,000th career point during a 38-point night against Isle of Wight Academy.
On Thursday Seaman dwarfed her previously best effort, setting a school single-game record with 48 points in a 109-17 victory over Alliance Christian School in the conference tournament quarterfinals.
"It's so exciting that the tournament is here," Seaman said. "We played so well as a team, it was a perfect way to start off our tournament."
Williamsburg Christian Academy (28-2) had seven players suit up for the contest, including three that were still not 100 percent healthy. Seaman said she played the entire game to help rest some players and noted that many of her points came off her 10 steals. She also added nine assists.
"Coach Donovan (Bridgeforth) told us to push the ball and run the floor," she said. "We came out ready to play, just as if we were in the championship game."
Seaman's 48 points matched Warhill's Devonte Dedmon's mark for most points in a game this season for a local high school player. Jessica Canady owns the single-game record in greater Williamsburg, a 50-point effort for Jamestown High's girls basketball team during a 96-61 victory over Bruton in 2005.
Imani Bryant had 19 points and five steals for Williamsburg Christian on Thursday. Kaylee Boger finished with 16 points and eight steals, while Charnissa Chillers added 13.
Boys — Xavier Green scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Williamsburg Christian Academy's boys basketball team to an 84-26 victory over Isle of Wight Academy in the Metro Conference tournament quarterfinals.
Mark Seaman posted 13 points and eight rebounds. Andre Brown chipped in 13 points and Ryan Flanagan added 12 more to give the Eagles (23-7) four players in double figures.
