AMELIA–The Tidewater Academy girls’ basketball team was eliminated from the Virginia Independent Schools Association Division III state tournament with a 74-38 quarterfinal loss to No. 2-ranked Amelia Academy Wednesday night.

Cary Beahm led Tidewater with 18 points while teammates Taylor Pruitt and Falon Williams scored six points apiece.
