Athletic Results from Tuesday, December 7

  • The 8th grade girls’ basketball team lost to Charlotte Latin with a score of 39 to 15.   The team had 17 rebounds, 16 steals, 15 points and 23+ turnovers which hurt the effort.   The team will look to rebound on Thursday as they take on Charlotte Christian in Boswell Gym at 4:15 pm. 


  • The 8th grade boys’ basketball team was defeated by Charlotte Latin on Tuesday evening 46-28.  The margin of defeat is not a good indicator of how the team played overall.  After being outscored by 15 in the first quarter the Cougars were extremely competitive the final three quarters of the game.  Danny Brenner played a great game, scoring 12 of the team’s points and playing solid defense. 


  • The boys JV basketball team dropped their second straight game Tuesday with a 53-44 loss to Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point. The Cougars were led by JM Wilson with 12 points, Daniel Wyatt with 9 points and 7 rebounds, and Grant Gossage with 6 points and 9 rebounds. Blake Brewer played a strong game on the boards with 8 rebounds. The Cougars will look to even their record before they go on holiday break at home on Friday against Queens Grant Charter School.


  • Tuesday evening the Cannon School varsity girl’s basketball team lost a very tough game at Wesleyan Christian School in High Point with a score of 56-51 in overtime.

  • Cannon’s varsity boys basketball team traveled to High Point Tuesday night to take on a talented Wesleyan Christian Academy squad that boasts three Division I prospects, including 7’1” Deng Leek and fell with a score of 61-43. The Cougars proved from the very outset that they were ready to play and were up for the challenge. Cannon would play, without a doubt, its best and most focused half of basketball in the first 16 minutes versus the Trojans. Led by Jr. Hans-Christian Lauer’s first quarter explosion of 8 points, the Cougars led after one quarter, 10-9. Cannon’s defensive focus and intensity would continue through the second quarter as Cannon would continue to lead up until the waning moments of the half. Jr. Will Nork would get into the scoring action for Cannon as he knocked home 7 second quarter points in quick succession. Soph. Tommy Chepke and Lauer would also add three pointers in the second quarter and at the break the Cougars were within striking distance of the talented Trojans at 27-23.  A cold-shooting third quarter would doom Cannon. The team continued to run their offense well, work hard on the defensive end and took good shots, but they simply did not fall for the good guys and it led to a number of quick run outs for Wesleyan’s talented guard combo of JaQuel Richmond and Montay Brandon. As has become expected, the Cougars fought to the very end and continued to learn some very important lessons during the course of this single game. Hans-Christian Lauer would play his best game in a Cannon uniform to date with 19 points. Will Nork added 13 for the contest.
