The junior Eagles of Agape Christian School came back from Grand Bahama with the winning trophy for their victory in the Grand Bahama Basketball Boys under 15 Challenge.
It was indeed a challenge during four close games, said Coach Wayde Adderley, but ultimately the Eagles beat the Tabernacle Baptist Academy Falcons 18-15, winning the championship and making up for their previous day’s defeat against that same team.
Eight schools entered the Franco Miller- Scott Forbes Tournament- Boys Under 15 Challenge, seven from Grand Bahama and the one from Abaco.
It was a double elimination type tournament that took place March 12 -17. The Eagles lost to The Falcons on the first day, but won four games the following day, including the championship game.
Joshua Cornish was declared the Most Valuable Player for Abaco and also made the All-Tournament Team together with team mate Tavares McIntosh.
Coach Adderley was voted Coach of the Tournament. The team was also accompanied by Coach Godfrey Rolle who has been assisting Coach Adderley for the past four years.
“We are still working on building the team”, commented Wayde Adderley who is faced with losing some of his best senior players next year as they graduate from high school.
The Eagles will travel to Grand Bahama again over the Easter Holiday to participate in the St George’s Showcase Tournament.
