“Trinity 1sts get six players selected in CAS Teams.”
Trinity’s strong depth and solid season was rewarded with six boys making the CAS Representative Teams. Trinity co-captain of basketball Jayden W. (12Ar) was also given the honour of Co-Captaining the CAS Firsts Team.
- CAS 1sts– Jayden W. (12Ar), James A. (11La), Jesse E. (10WH)
- CAS 2nds – James A. (12WH), Cristian F. (12Mu), Liam I. (10WJ)
The Trinity boys performed very well in the opening games of the Representative season with both CAS teams defeating ISA at Cranbrook School on Tuesday. James A. and Liam I. combined for ten points in the second period which gave CAS a handy 9-point lead at the break. Cristian F. hustled on the boards, grabbing crucial rebounds to see CAS Seconds hold on and take the win by just two points (63-61).
In the Firsts encounter, the CAS boys got off to fast start with Jayden W. nailing a big ‘3’on his way to a solid 14 points for the match. CAS coughed up the ball constantly, allowing ISA to stay in the contest to lead by 12 points at the half. Jesse E. responded with some good play in the fourth quarter as CAS extended their lead. James A. put the icing on the cake with a sweet baseline teardrop as CAS finished with comfortable 21-point victory (99-78), but will need to look after the ball if they are to compete against the GPS this year.
CAS strong showing continued with two victories over AICES. The CAS Seconds led by Trinity’s Liam I. (24 points) jumped out to an early lead to take the match by 19 points (67-48). James A. (6 points) was also impressive having to run the point guard spot due to some CAS teammates unavailable. Cristian F. once again was a strong on the defensive end. In the Firsts CAS dominated from start to finish often taking the margin out over 20 points, before ASICES would bomb a couple of ‘3s’ to stay within striking range. Trinity’s Jayden W. (7 points) and James A. (3 points) once again put in solid performances. With Jesse E. out due to illness James A. stepped in and also performed at high level when he got his opportunity.
Both CAS Teams and the Trinity ‘six’ are primed for the traditional fixture against rival GPS, which will be held at The King’s School on Wednesday 30 March.
