Our varsity boys basketball team, under the direction of Coach Patrick Miller, completed New Covenant School’s first ever undefeated season with a victory against conference rival Foothills Christian School, 43-40.
The basketball Cavaliers finished the regular season with a 19-0 record, going 8-0 in the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools 1A, Region 1 conference. The victory against Foothills officially punched the team’s ticket to the SCACS State Tournament which is February 16th and 17th at Grace Christian School in Columbia, SC.
The game against Foothills was a battle that was not decided until the final minute. With under a minute remaining in the game and the Cavs trailing by one, junior Stuart Marshburn made a key steal and turned it into a breakaway lay up, giving the Cavaliers a lead they would not relinquish the rest of the game. A few clutch free throws by freshman Logan Milford sealed New Covenant’s win.
