This past week, November 26th-December 1st, Santa Clarita Christian School’s Varsity Boys Basketball Team was privileged to compete in one of the country’s premier basketball tournaments ‘The Battlezone.’ The invitation-only tournament is hosted annually by Corona, Centennial High School.
At the Battlezone tournament, the Cardinals faced talented teams from Open Divisions and other higher divisions they posted a 3 win and 1 loss record, earning the consolation bracket championship. Throughout the tournament, the Cardinals carried momentum developed last season where they earned the League, CIF Division, Sectional, and State Championships.
The Cardinals look to key contributions from returning players Noah Veluzat, Caden Starr, Kaleb Lowery, Justin Collins, Kevin Stone, and Leroy Thompson, while also relying on contributions from newcomers Kyjuan Cannady, Joshua O’Garro, Reagan Noll, and Ethan Schwesinger.
They are led by Santa Clarita Valley Signal Sports Coach of the Year James Mosley now in his 17th season.
The 2017-18 Signal Sports Team of the Year is poised for future success, but we know will be tested throughout the season.
The Cardinals will participate in the first annual Sierra Canyon Invitational on December 3rd through the 8th, capped off by a contest against California’s #1 ranked and Open Division defending champion Sierra Canyon. December 26th-29th the Cardinals will participate in a nationally recognized, invitation-only premier tournament at Damien High School. The Cardinals’ schedule is filled with showcases and tournaments designed to challenge student athletes in humility and deference to God’s glory. Opportunities exist for student athletes to play in games that showcase their God-given talents in front of college recruiters and coaches who seek additions to their programs. We look forward to a year of His success and thank you all for your support of SCCS basketball
