The Greater Cabarrus Athletic Association (GCAA) primary function is to provide a competitive sports venue for homeschool students. It is an environment that promotes a Christian approach to sports and teaches the student athlete the importance of bringing their faith into their athletics. GCAA is based in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, but serves athletes from all areas surrounding, reaching into Mecklenburg and Rowan Counties frequently as well as drawing athletes from many more distant counties in North and South Carolina. GCAA is a safe place for a student to honor God and play his or her sport to their highest ability. Teams are developed for the purpose of developing the character, skill, and teamwork of each student with the hope that a properly placed passion for their sport will serve them and their walk with God for the rest of their lives.
The JV boys held on for a hard-fought 44-43 victory Friday night in Asheville. It was the first meeting of the season for these two teams, which played in the NCHE State Championship game back in February (won by the Trailblazers). This one was expected to be a tough battle, and it was. Asheville jumped out to a 14-7 lead in the first quarter, thanks to excellent ball movement. But the Stallions settled down and employed some full-court defense, limiting Asheville to just 3 second quarter points. Bradin Lilly provided some much needed offense, scoring 9 of his 13 points in the second quarter, and the Stallions took a 23-18 lead into the locker room. The second half was back and forth, with Asheville's P. Rennard hitting a 3-pointer at the third quarter buzzer to cut the lead to 34-32. Bailey Benham, playing on a sore knee, hit several big shots in the second half to keep his team in front. The score was 42-36, Stallions, with 1:20 to play, when Asheville got back-to-back steals and baskets to cut the lead to 42-40. They had the ball with a chance to tie or take the lead, when Brody Madeira stepped in front of pass for a steal, and found Bailey Benham for a much needed lay up with 14 seconds to go. Asheville's Rennard gave his team a chance hitting a running 3-pointer with 5 seconds to go. After an Asheville timeout, Dalton Lankford found Brody Madeira with a long baseball pass down the court, and the Stallions were able to run out the clock. Bailey Benham finished with 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 steals. Brent Gambrell and Bradin Lilly each collected 9 rebounds. The victory moved the Stallions to 9-0 on the season. They'll be back in action on December 29th in a tournament in Kernersville, NC.
The JV Stallions improved to 4-0 last Tuesday, with a 74-68 victory at High Point Christian Academy. The Stallions led by 12 at the half, and extended the lead to 17 after 3 quarters. The Cougars of High Point would not go easily though, increasing their pressure defense, and hitting 6-3's in the fourth quarter to close the gap. But the Stallions converted enough free throws down the stretch to hang on for the win. Bailey Benham continued his hot shooting, finishing 11-of-17 from the floor, and posting a season-high 31 points, to go along with 13 rebounds. Bradin Lilly went 3-for-3 behind the arc and finished with his season high of 18 points. Brody Madeira and Travis Cone stuffed the stat sheet, combining for 9 rebounds, 5 assists, and 7 steals. The Stallions as a team struggled against the High Point pressure in the fourth quarter, committing several turnovers. However, they were again solid at the foul line, going 17-for-24.
