OCSAA State Championship Results

The OCSAA State Tournament wrapped-up on Saturday with both NHCA teams earning a second place finish.

The Lady Statesmen fell to the Flames from Mansfield Christian 41-53 in the Varsity Girls Championship game.

The NHCA Varsity Boys saw a three-point attempt fall just short as time expired.  The Bruins from DePaul Cristo Rey prevailed 50-47 in the Boys Final.

I was very encouraged how our teams displayed Jesus during the OCSAA Tournament! The Principal of DePaul Cristo Rey approached me after the game and stated,

“This victory is much sweeter because we had to beat New Hope to achieve it.  You guys set the standard that the rest of us are trying to get to.”

GO STATESMEN! 👏🏀

I hope to see you all at the NHCA Winter Sports Banquet on Monday, March 9 at 6:00PM (meet in Gym 2)!
