After nearly a week in which every high school game was postponed due to weather, several area teams finally got the chance to hit the hardwood for game action on Thursday. District tournaments are scheduled to start next week, but Mother Nature has been winning all the battles since last weekend's snowfall.

The Western Albemarle boys hit the court to battle Orange in a game that was originally scheduled for Tuesday. The Warriors jumped out to a sizable first quarter lead and opened up a big gap, going on for the 70-42 victory. They remain in second place in the Jefferson District, as Charlottesville had its game with Goochland postponed yet again.

Albemarle hit the court for a make-up game against Stafford and was able to grab a Commonwealth District win. The Patriots and Indians played a close game, but Albemarle was able to earn the 60-53 win behind Andrew Mann's 13 points.

Girls action saw Fluvanna remain unbeaten in the Jefferson District. The Flucos are now just one win away from clinching the Jefferson District regular season title after Thursday's 61-37 win over Monticello. Fluvanna is scheduled to play Charlottesville on Saturday, but the weather may get in the way of that match up.

Western Albemarle remained in second place and held onto its slim Jefferson District regular season title hopes with a convincing 64-41 win over Orange. The Warriors used a big second half to slam the door on the Hornets' chances of a comeback.

William Monroe traveled to Louisa and returned on the winning end of a 59-52 victory. Caitlin Roach scored 17 points in the Dragon win.
