Team releases butterflies for Avery

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Teammates of a Chesterfield teen killed in an accident remembered Avery Spence in a special way before their game last night.

The girl's soccer team at Manchester High released butterflies for Avery.

They talked about how much she's missed, and how she had touched so many lives on and off the field.

The 17-year-old was killed in a car wreck earlier this month in Nottoway County.
