Courtesy of Coach Ryan Newkirk with the Caldwell Academy Eagles Middle School Boys Basketball Team:
Last night/Thursday night, Caldwell Academy’s Middle School Boys basketball team defeated Canterbury School 49-36 for the Triad Middle School Athletic Conference Championship. It was a very high-energy, well-played game by both teams. Caldwell’s Payne Bradley led all scorers with 17 points, while Parker Jenkins added 13 points and 10 rebounds. With the win, Caldwell won the tournament championship for the second straight season, after winning the regular season with a perfect 8-0 conference record.
Caldwell lost two starters to season-ending injuries the past two weeks – and their boys pulled together in a most impressive way. A privilege to coach!….That is the word from Coach Ryan Newkirk…..
