FA 32 - Trinity Christian 29 (1st Round of State)

With this being our fourth game against Trinity this season and winning the previous three by wide margins, it was pretty easy to guess that Trinity would have to do something different to stay with us. They did just that. In basketball terms they did something called "taking the air out of the ball." Trinity slowed the game down and played keep away for the majority of the game. It was a great gameplan on their part, and the only thing they could have done to stay close with us. Even though we only won by three points, I am proud of our team for being so resilient and focused to finish this game. It's frustrating to play a game like this, but it's also a good lesson to learn. Anyone can stay with anyone with the right strategy. As they say, "win and advance." That's exactly what we did. You don't put the score in the win column.   

Jacob O'Connor led us in scoring with 13, followed by William Jobe with 9, Vic Riden and Bryce Reilly both had 4, and Jordan Triplett had 2.

FA 39 - Creekside 61 (Elite 8 State Playoffs)

To say it was a disappointing end to a great year is an understatement. Shots wouldn't fall, and layups rolled off the rim. We couldn't find a flow to the game, and CCA took advantage of our miscues. There really isn't much to say about the game except we didn't perform well enough to be in it at any time of the evening. 

Even though our season ended early, overall it was a good season. We made it to the Elite 8, and our record was 18-8. We finished second in the Region. We have four players named to the All-Region Team. I am proud to have led these fine young men. They are not just quality basketball players to me but quality young men that will graduate from FA and become leaders in their own right.

Go Knights!

FA 22 - Brookwood 53

The girls traveled for the first round of state of Tuesday to play Brookwood. Brookwood is a good team with four out of their five starters being seniors. Brookwood plays a fast guard game. We were not able to get shots off easily and had a hard time passing the ball under pressure. 

The girls had a great season, and I could not be more proud of the effort that they showed over the past six months. Megan Trowbridge and Katelyn Sitz showed admirable leadership on and off the court.

Go Knights!

Varsity Tennis
Frederica Tennis vs. Valwood

Frederica Academy hosted Valwood for a match last Wednesday. Frederica lost both Boys and Girls matches by identical 3-2 scores. Valwood is a very solid team. They are always in the hunt for the championship title. It was great to have a tough test early in the season, and there is a good chance we could match up again at the State Tournament. I am pleased by how the team played; we were down a couple of players against Valwood, and we still stayed competitive to the end. Matches were won by Kate Walbridge, Ali Brown-WinansRoy Boyd, and the doubles team of Grant Offner and Jax Grotz. The FA Tennis Team plays their next match this Thursday against Brunswick High at the College of Coastal Georgia Courts at 4:00 p.m.

Go Knights!
