MIDDLEBURG, VA—Fredericksburg Academy dethroned Wakefield School as varsity champion but Wakefield’s middle school team took a trophy home to The Plains Saturday when Foxcroft School’s sixth annual Think Pink Basketball Tournament to benefit local Cherry Blossom Breasts Cancer Foundation was held.

Wakefield’s varsity had virtually owned the Think Pink high school title, winning it four of the previous five years (and missing the tournament the fifth year). But Fredericksburg and St. James School (Hagerstown, MD) beat them to the championship game, FA won, 38-30.
