LURAY – In a closely contested girls basketball game Friday night, Riverheads edged Luray 39-38 in Shenandoah District action.

Riverheads had a 3-point lead as time wound down with the Bulldogs hitting a 2-pointer at the final buzzer. But it was one point short.
Macey Snyder led the Gladiators with 12 points while Sara Moore added eight.
