Thomas Signs Soccer Scholarship

Senior striker, Joshua Thomas, signed a national letter of intent to continue his soccer career at Bryan College in Dayton, TN. A key member of last year’s state soccer championship team, Thomas believed that God was calling him to join former SCA head soccer coach Jeremy Davidson. Davidson currently serves as the head men’s soccer coach at Bryan. He had the privilege of coaching Josh not only at SCA last year but for several years during his club years. Current SCA head coach, Ashley Thomas, is excited not only for his son, but for the upcoming season when his team will defend their state title! Congratulations Josh!

New Basketball Record Set

Congratulations to senior Colin Dougherty who broke the record for career 3-point goals made at SCA! In the 3rd quarter of a tight game with Griffin Christian, Dougherty hit his fourth 3-pointer of the night to set the record of made threes at 148. The previous mark of 147 was set by 2010 graduate Wesley Pittman. The Eagles went on to win a tight game by the score of 63-58. The boys’ varsity team sits at an impressive 12-2 record for the season.

Dougherty, a two-time team captain and three-year starter, has been a prolific outside shooter during his career. He has already matched the most 3-pointers hit in a single game with Patrick Stanford (2013) hitting seven against Central Fellowship Christian Academy last season during the Region Tournament. Dougherty entered his senior year with 105 career threes but has been been hitting them at a steady rate with 43 already this season as the team heads to Christmas break. The coaching staff is confident he will be setting the bar high for 3-pointers made with half of the season yet to be played. Congratulations Colin!

Sherwood Christian Academy Girls Varsity basketball team lost in heart-breaking fashion in the GICAA Division 1-AA state championship in Macon on Saturday night to Covenant Academy 32-26 in overtime.

After a hard-fought game that went back and forth, freshman Joy Kendrick’s potential game winning shot went in and out for the Eagles at the buzzer in regulation that sent the game into overtime. Unfortunately, the Rams from Covenant Academy pulled away in the extra session.

The Lady Eagles were led in scoring by junior guard Ashanti Harrison who scored 14 points. Seniors Caroline Mathis and Anna Kendrick added 6 and 4 points respectively. Junior Alex McComas hit two critical free throws down the stretch that tied the game in regulation.

The Lady Eagles had an incredible run finishing with a record of 18-7. Congratulations to Coach Gary Oxendine, Asst. Coach Vincent Raven, and the entire team for a great season to remember!
