Voyager Academy opened the 2017-18 season with an 83-62 victory non-conference win at Durham School of the Arts.
Michael Boadu scored 9 of his game and career high 26 points in the first quarter as the Vikings jumped out to a 24-13 lead at the end of the first quarter. The lead continued to grow as the Vikings built a 39-25 cushion by halftime.

In the fourth quarter, the Vikings exploded for 31 points to put the game once again out of reach.
Blake Buchanan nearly achieved a triple-double for Voyager, scoring 20 points and adding team highs in rebounds (14), assists (8), plus 2 steals in a solid all-around effort. Taleik Pratt had a career high 22 points. Boadu and Tanner Dobson each added 7 rebounds
