ROCKINGHAM — The Richmond Senior High School girls’ basketball team dropped a pair of non-conference games on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Unable to rebound from last week’s season-opening defeat, the Lady Raiders suffered a 70-18 loss to Myers Park High School to open the week.

That was followed by a 46-20 loss to Jack Britt High School on Wednesday. Richmond and head coach Teddy Moseley have started the new season on a three-game skid.

Junior C’Niya Hinson was the team’s leading scorer in the loss to the Lady Mustangs, netting five points, including a field goal and a three-pointer.

Fellow junior Makailah Jackson scored four points and senior Nyla Stroman and junior Keyoni Nichols both added two points.

During Wednesday’s game, the Lady Raiders trailed 10-4 after the opening quarter against Jack Britt (3-0).

Sophomore Quanna Bostick scored the first two of her four total points and Jackson and freshman J’Nasia Neal both hit a free throw.

Nichols led the Lady Raiders in scoring with nine points in the game, netting a pair of triples in the second stanza. Senior C’Nedra Hinson and C’Niya Hinson added one bucket apiece and Richmond trailed 16-14 at the half.

Outscored 13-4 in the third, Richmond’s points came from a Nichols three-pointer and another Jackson shot from the line. 

Bostick notched two more points in the fourth quarter, Richmond’s only points in the period.

Richmond (0-3) will return to action after the holiday break with a non-conference home game against Northern Guilford High School (1-0). Play is set to begin at 6 p.m.
