Wednesday Jan 11th 2017, the Anglican High School basketball team continued their opening charge through the 2017 Interschool Basketball Competition. The girls from tanteen faced off against the Wesley College, a team well known for its dominance in the Male Division. From the first toss up, Wesley College made it known that AHS was in for a fight and fight they did. After 40 grueling minutes, despite several bumps and a few spills the AHS powered through to a 30 – 6 win over the Wesley College.
We won but it was a hard match! They were playing agressive. We were a little timid at first but Mr. McSween pumped us up and we got the job done! – Reba (Senior player)
Speaking to the team after the match, they credited their victory to teamwork and it was evident on the court as Kerissa Thomas contined her solid form. In a game where previous standout Nikita Bowen struggled, Thomas stepped up leading the team into their second victory and claiming the Most Valuable Player award for the 2nd Match. Her efforts were matched with nigh impenetradle defensive work from the likes of Priness Abraham & Alisha Scott who continue to prove their value to the AHS team.
“Mr. McSween always says it. Teamwork! We have a job to do and we got out as a team and do it!” Alisha (Senior)
With two matches out of the way, the AHS Ballers look ahead to Monday’s showdown against the St. Joseph’s Convent St. George. This match up promises to be a heated contest as both teams have been producing strong performances thus far. Their match is scheduled for Monday Jan 16th at the Carenage Basketball Court.
