The Women’s Varsity Basketball team at Fayetteville State
University Broncoettes recently competed in the CIAA Women’s
basketball tournament in Petersburg, Va., and won consolation
honors during the week of Feb. 13-15.
The Broncoettes won the consolation game over Virginia
State’s girls, 60-45.
The team defeated Hampton Institute, 86-44, in the first round
and about two hours later the same day faced St. Augustine’s
College and dropped a thriller, 56-54.
Ironically, the FSU team lost its two games to St. Augustine’s
College who eventually won the tourney at Petersburg.
Gail Cameron, fancy shooting forward for the Broncoettes,
was named to the All-Tournament team.
Coach Taylor has an outstanding record as mentor for the
Broncoettes having compiled a fabulous 43-4 record over the past
two and one half years.
Teams represented in the first annual CIAA Tourney were
Norfolk State College, St. Paul’s College, St. Augustine College,
Hampton Institute, Elizabeth City State University, Winston-
Salem State University, Livingstone College, Virginia State
College, and Fayetteville State University.
