The First Presbyterian Christian Academy Highlanders have scored a combined 206 points in their past two games, defeating Providence Christian 102-23 Tuesday night, and dropping Citizens Christian 104-54 Friday night at the St. James Sports Center.
The boys rule the Georgia Independent School Association’s Region 2-A at 3-0.
The Patriots came out quick, knocking in two buckets to take the lead. However, the Highlanders turned up the heat and shifted into third gear, a pace too quick for the Patriot defenders.
By halftime, the Highlanders had a 58-20 lead and never slowed their pace. Jordan Johnson and Mike Brown hit treys from the opposite corners and DJ Felder and Hakeem Golden grabbed rebounds, turning them into layups for a win.
The Highlanders were set to play a non-region game against Furtah Prep last night. The girls will also play Heritage Christian on Tuesday. The boys squad is looking ahead to next Saturday’s homecoming game against Bethesda, their strongest region opponent.
The Courier will bring you the results as they become available.
