Today was a fantastic day for basketball and for the basketball programs for NCA! Both girls’ and boys’ teams made the final game of the state championship tournament – after an intense first couple of rounds. Today; however, the girls’ team fell to Carolina Day School (reigning champions) in a very closely matched game. We fought hard and all the way until the fourth quarter read 00:00. In the end, we came up just short.
On the boys’ side, our team gave a valiant effort, facing First Assembly for the third time in the state championship game. Much like the girls’ team, despite our efforts, we came up just short in the end.
Regardless, a very big congratulations to both of our teams for remarkably making the state finals together. We are thankful for the great coaches that we have here, Ms. Ashley Mcguirt, (girls’ head coach) as well as Mr. Byron Dinkins (boys’ head coach) and their fantastic assistant coaches for all the hard work and excellent training which prepared us to make it this far. Let’s all join together with a big “WAY TO GO KNIGHTS!” for another great season!
