The 22-6 St. John’s Christian Academy Cavaliers were well represented on the SCISA All Region III team as voted on by the region’s seven coaches during the first round of the state tournament last weekend.
Mike Lewis garnered boy’s Player of the Year honors while Jenna O’Dell, who recently scored her 1,000th career point, was named the girl’s Player of the Year.
Lewis was one of four Cavaliers named to the All-Region team. Greg Gamble, Damian Hurta, and Bobby Winters also earned the honor.
†“We are very proud,” said St. John’s Coach Bob Winters. “It reflects on the respect they have for the basketball program and tradition that is being built at SJCA.”
Winters was also named SCISA Region III Coach of the Year. The coach felt honored to be selected by his region peers.
“I am indebted to my team helping me earn this award,” he said. “In 1985, my last year at Berkeley, I was chosen for a similar award and had the privilege to coach a bunch of good players on that team also.
“I have always believed that good players make you†a good coach. This time around it may have been a combination of having good players and the other coaches feeling sorry for a crippled old man.”
The Cavaliers advanced to the SCISA Class A Elite Eight with a 63-61 win over Covenant Christian and were set to face Newberry in the quarterfinals on Tuesday at Orangeburg Prep.
The SCISA semi-finals are scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 21.
