  • The eighth grade girls basketball team lost to Charlotte Christian 37-6.  The girls came back in the second half to play a much better game.  Annie Collom played a fantastic defensive game against their best player. Erin Norton also played a very good game at both ends of the court.  Emily Fromke and Rachel Mazur did a great job boxing out and playing multiple positions.  Anna Redding continues to lead the team and does a great job controlling the tempo.  We look forward to a great tournament starting next week.

 

  • The 8th grade boys’ basketball team lost to Charlotte Christian Tuesday night, 50-25.  Robert Sevin led the team with 6 points.

 

  • The boys JV basketball team traveled to Charlotte Country Day last night and fell to the Buccaneer’s by a score of 54-34. Cannon jumped out to a lead after the first quarter, but were rattled over the next two quarters by their opponents pressure defense. The ensuing deficit was too much for the Cougars to make up, even though they played even in the final quarter. Cannon was paced by Blake Brewer, who led the team in scoring with 8 points and rebounding with 5. Myles Grier followed with 6 points, and Grant Gossage had 4 points and 4 rebounds before going down with injury in the 3rd quarter. The boys will look to regroup Friday as Charlotte Latin travels to our gym for a 4:30 tilt.

 

  • Cannon’s Varsity Boys Basketball Team entered Tuesday night’s contest at Charlotte Country Day with a unique opportunity. After struggling through the early portions of their schedule, the Cougars had the chance to be (2-0) within the CISAA and share a piece of the lead in the conference. Additionally, with a win at Country Day, that would have been two road wins within the league already. Winning on the road in any league is never easy to do. With that being said, it simply was not the Cougars night. Cannon started the game well with early transition hoops for Hans Christian Lauer and Will Nork. PG Alec Wintering got off to a hot start with 8 first quarter points, but momentum began to change when Wintering had to leave the contest near the end of the first quarter due to having blood on his person and uniform. In a very short period of time Cannon would wilt under CCDS’s 2-2-1 full court trap. An early lead for Cannon quickly turned into a seven point deficit. Stewart Brown would nail a three-ball from the right corner for Cannon in the second quarter and Wintering would chip in 5 more second quarter points but overall Cannon lost the quarter 14-10 and found themselves down at the half 31-22.  The third quarter saw Cannon come out of the gates and immediately make some of the same defensive lapses that plagued them in the first half and make the same mistakes in how to attack Country Day’s press. The result of that was the Buccaneer’s lead grew from 9 at the half to ultimately 17 points. Cannon would come out and show some fight in the fourth quarter but it would be way too little, too late on this night. CCDS would effectively handle Cannon’s attempt to trap and press late in the game and the Buccaneers secured a 56-48 CISAA victory.  Cannon was led by Alec Wintering’s 32 points and 5 assists. Hans Christian Lauer had 6 points and 4 rebounds.

 

  • The 7th grade boys basketball team ended their season in remarkable fashion with an 51-41 victory over Charlotte Christian.  The first quarter Ryan Chandler was on a mission as he drove to the basket on three occasions and came up with 6 pts while Andre Dahan hit a big three pointer and at the end to the first quarter with a score of 9 to 9.  In the second quarter the Cougars found themselves in foul trouble early putting Charlotte Christian to the free throw line on every foul.  The Knights moved ahead and took a 21 to 7 lead into the half.  At halftime the Cougars regrouped and came out with a confidence that hasn’t been this year.  The Cougars went back to the full court press that worked so well early on and put pressure on the Knights guards causing several turnovers.  With such a tenacious effort on defense the Cougars were able to put up a season high 25 point 3rd quarter with Cole Lippincott  adding 10 pts and Ben Wyatt adding 8 pts while Ryan Chandler added 5 pts. The Cougars took a 39-29 lead into the 4th qtr but in the 4th qtr the Cougars increased their lead to up to a season high 17 pts behind the best defensive effort on the season for the Cougars.  The Cougars held on to win by a score of 51-41.  The Cougars had a great team win, Ryan Chandler, Grant Wagner, Zach McMahan, and Dominic Pelucio all played tremendously on the defensive side of the ball.  Cole Lippincott, Ben Wyatt, Adam Clinard and Dominc Pelucio had a great night of rebounding.   Ben Wyatt had 14 pts, Cole Lippencott had 13 pts, Ryan Chandler had 12 pts a season high for him, Dominic Pelucio had 4 pts and Andre Dahan had 8 pts with two key 3 pointers on the night.  As a team we had the game we prepared for all season long, it was good to see the guys be aggressive and confident.  Thank you all for supporting your 7th grade team.  We had a great season with a record of 4 wins and 6 losses and a great building block for the future.
