Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Miranda Drummond and Jordan Beers scored double-digit points in both games for the Southern Tier girls squad as they went 2-0 in the first day of action at the BCANY Summer Hoops Festival.

Drummond, the soon-to-be senior from Harpursville, led the way in both games with 19 and 21 points respectively against the Central region and Mid Hudson team.

On the flip side, things were a little more difficult for the Southern Tier boys team on Friday.

The Southern Tier started strong against both Central and Mid Hudson only to fall in both games.
