The Orcas Christian School Saints have finished their 2nd week of games and are on a good track.
The girls’ team has played three tough games, falling to each opponent but have shown improvement and a better understanding of basketball with each game. They started out with a loss to a tough Lopez team followed by another loss to a shorthanded but still good Grace Academy team. This last week, plagued with injuries and trips, the Saints started to look better against a very good Tulalip team that played in the state tournament last year.
The boy’s team has been on a roll, starting the season with a 4-0 mark. The beginning of the season is sometimes a little rough and this was evident in the Saints first two games.
“We started out very sloppy and were tied or losing at half-time of our first two games. We got it together and came back to win by 20 points and 19 points against Lopez and Grace,” said Coach Ryan Davis. The Saints beat Tulalip by 11 points, and then Providence by 35. “We have a group of young players that are led by a couple veterans. Ryan Flint, Corey and Cameron Aragon have all been tremendous assets to have and are doing a great job of putting the team in a position to win.”
The Saints have home games on Monday against Lummi Nation: girls at 3 p.m. and boys at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday against Cedar Park Christian.
Come out and support your OCS Saints.
