Athletic Results from Thursday, January 20


  • The eighth grade girls basketball team played their best game yet.  Charlotte Latin won with a score of 32-19 but the score does not tell the story.  The score was 11-9 at halftime and the Cougars were within 6 points until the last 4 minutes.  We had to begin to foul and the Hawks hit their free throws.  Awesome game girls.  Some highlights were Caitlin Brewer with 14 rebounds and 9 points.  Anna Redding had 6 rebounds,3 steals and 8 points.  Taylor Marks was remarkable on the boards and set the tone defensively.  Scottie Dickens and Kendall Thomas also did a great job on defense.  Our next game is tomorrow against Lake Norman and we hope to bring home a win.

 

  • The 8th grade boys’ basketball team lost to Charlotte Latin Thursday evening, 39-20.  Addison Hearn led the team with 6 points.

 

  • The 7th grade girls’ basketball team faced Charlotte Latin for the first time of the season on Thursday. Charlotte Latin did not play their starters during the first half and the Cougars went up 9-0 at the half. In the second half, the Charlotte Latin starters got on the court and played an aggressive full court press. The Cougars were never able to properly execute their press offense and many turnovers ensued. Whenever the Cougars rebounded the ball, they were never able to properly protect it and many jump balls occurred. In the end, the Cougars were simply out hustled and had many mental breakdowns in the second half. The final score was 23-11.
