Last season’s playoff game featuring Westminster Academy and Calvary Christian Academy, the score resulted in a crushing 82-63 loss for the Eagles.
However, Tuesday’s game may be a different story.
“We came to win a district title at their house and they beat us badly and talked smack after we lost,” Eagles captain Dylan Canoville told 305 Sports. “There are no friends with any of them, [we are] just coming to take this game”.
Calvary Christian, which finished 21-8 last year, has revamped its team this year with the additions of some of the top players in South Florida including junior Taylor Hendricks, sophomore Marvel Allen, sophomore Tyler Hendricks, and senior Logan Lord to go along with senior Dylan Canoville and junior Gregg Glenn.
Facing off against a Lions team with high major prospect Ben Middlebrooks is just a small test for the Eagles, who are also scheduled to play national powerhouses such as IMG Academy and Montverde Academy.
If the Eagles can potentially defeat Westminster Academy tomorrow, “it will lead [them on a path] to a historic year,” Canoville said.
For the ones wondering what to expect specifically from the loaded Calvary Christian team, it’s pretty simple.
“Every single game you see us out on the floor we are going to play hard-nosed defense, “head coach Cilk McSweeney said. “We are going to play together, we will be electric, and the crowd is going to love us.”
