First District Championship in 16 years!

5x7districtwebWe’ve been waiting for this moment since 1993, a Basketball District Championship in Shepherd!  The Bluejays defeated Bullock Creek 66-52 (beating the Creek for the third time this season!).  It wasn’t as easy as the final score looks.  The Bluejays had a hard time getting the ball in the paint in the first quarter and when they did they appeared a little tight missing several puppy shots.  This result in Jays trailing by as many as 7 points in the first quarter.  But ‘Silver’ finally got the momentum going by dumping in a couple of threes.  After getting the lead the Bluejays never trailed again in the game.  In the second half they lead by as 14 points, but in the fourth the Creek cut the lead to 8.  The Boy’s tightened the D down, forced a couple of turnovers to regain the double digit lead and never looked back from there.bjfaith

Check out the pictures in the galleries.  What was big in this game (as it has been all season), was the large, loud, cheering contingent of students.  Thanks to David and Big John for organizing and leading the Bluejay Faithful.  They’ve kept it positive and loud.  In doing so, they helped lift the team in close games this season.  Great job students!!
