Dear Titan Nation:
We finished our winter sports season over the weekend, and I want to take a few moments to reflect and share with you how our season went. I know I speak for our coaches and players when I say thank you for all of the support that you have given to all of our teams. TBCA is a special place and what makes it special are the administrators, teachers, coaches, players, parents, and everyone who support the Titans. Every sports season brings both highs and lows. The ebbs and flows of a sports season allow us to grow and become better. All of our sports teams had their highs as well as their lows. Here is a look at each team and how their season went.
Middle School Girls Basketball
Our middle school girls’ basketball team finished their season with a 6 - 7 record overall. They were 4 - 5 which allowed them to finish third in CCISAA Conference play. This team consisted of thirteen players. Even with five eighth graders moving up to the varsity level, there is a good nucleus returning for next year. The growth that this team showed should continue into next season.
Middle School Boys Basketball
Our middle school boys’ basketball team finished their season with a 12 - 6 overall record. They were 6 - 4 with a second place finish in CCISAA conference play during the regular season. They played in the Union Grove Tournament where they went 2 - 1 and took second place. They made it to the finals of the CCISAA Conference Tournament where they took second place. Their season was a season of growth. This team had thirteen players. Five will be moving up to the varsity level next year. The nucleus returning will be challenged to continue the success of this year's team.
Varsity Girls Basketball
Our varsity girls’ basketball team finished their season with an overall record of 12 - 16. They finished their first season in the Central Carolina Conference with a record of 9 - 6. They started their season 0 -9, but they finished the second half of their season 12 - 7, which included a run all the way to the state championship game in the CAASC Consolation Bracket. Other highlights of their season included making it to the finals of our own Triad Titan Christmas Classic and splitting our regular season match-ups with the eventual state champion, Community Baptist. Hailey became the first female in our school's history to reach the 1,000-point milestone. Our seniors will be hard to replace, but the future is certainly bright for the Lady Titans.
Varsity Boys Basketball
Our varsity boys’ basketball team finished their season with an overall record of 17 - 12. This was the second year in a row that the Titans won 17 games. They were 11 - 6 in their first year of Central Carolina Conference play. This year's team had many firsts. They won their first Triad Titan Christmas Classic. They won their first CAASC state playoff game when they defeated Winston Salem Christian for the first time. They defeated and swept New Garden Friends for the first time. Grady became the first 1,000-point scorer in school history, and Axel became the second just a few weeks later. The returning roster will be tasked with upholding the winning tradition which has been established over the past two years.
Our varsity cheerleading program just completed their second season. They continue to build a strong foundation. The value they bring to Triad Nation as they lead our cheering section, perform halftime routines, represent our flag in singing our national anthem, and lead our pep rallies cannot be measured. With all our varsity cheerleaders being underclassmen, we have a strong nucleus returning for next year's squad.
Elementary Cheer Club
Our elementary cheer club just completed their first year. With over twenty young ladies taking part in our cheer club, Coach Locklear has established a foundation from which all levels of Titan Cheerleading can grow. The level from which all of these young Lady Titans performed has all of Triad Nation excited about the future of Titan Cheerleading.
