The Anglican High School Basketball Team jumpstarted the 2017 Basketball season by handing out a crushing defeat to JW Fletcher Memorial Secondary on Monday January 9th 2017. Supported by standout performances from Princess Abraham, Kerissa Thomas and Alischa Scott, first game MVP Nikita Bowen led Team AHS to a 37 – 03 victory over JWF. Bowen amassed a total of 19 points, accounting for more than half of the AHS total.
“We did well against JW but I think we could have done better. We could have scored more. I think we could do with some more fitness training but I’m ready for Wesley College on Wednesday.” Alischa Scott, senior player
The first round win comes as no surprise to Coach and Physical Education Teacher Edmund McSween who led to team to the finals of the annual competition on two separate occasions in recent years. “Our opponents were a pretty young team so I’m not surprised but there’s more work to be done. Our match against Wesley College should have similar results.” McSween.
The Anglican High School Basketball Team looks to follow in the footsteps of the Netball Teams who clinched both the Junior and Senior Division Championships last December. Their next match up is on Wednesday Jan 11th against the Wesley College.
