The 6th grade PCA Girls Basketball Team captured their AAA division and entered the Division I playoffs as the #2 seed. Winning against Porter Gaud in the first round and rolling past Laing Middle in the second, the PCA Eagles earned the right to meet #1 seed Moultrie Middle for the Championship Title Game on Monday, February 11. This final game already had the headlines for a great battle. PCA had a 13-1 winning record coming into the game. So did Moultrie. But, PCA's one loss was to the Patriots. It would be the Eagles' chance to avenge that loss. The game started aggressive, just like Head Coach Eric Cox predicted. Annabelle Cox hit the front end of a one-and-one. And that would be the theme of the game, aggressive play landing someone on the foul line. At halftime, the Eagles lead 12-6. Moultrie would enter the second half like a sleeping giant. Playing with emotion, the Patriots would shift into another gear. But, the Eagles would remain calm and continue to fight. At game's end, there would be 7 PCA Eagles that would score. However, it was Cokey's Suddeth's high percentage of baskets made while at the free throw line that would make the difference, and make her MVP of the Trident League Division I Tournament. Point guard Lily Buceti and Forward Annabelle Cox were also handed All-Conference Awards for the tourney. Congratulations, Lady Eagles on your Division I Trident League Basketball Championship and for a great season!

Mrs. Sweeny's Senior Thesis classes recently had the opportunity to volunteer in Ms. Jones' and Mrs. Andrews' third grade classrooms. During the hour the students spent together, the seniors were able to help the third graders write and edit their very first biography paper. Each
senior was partnered with one or two third graders, and the groups spread out in the hallway and classrooms to write. From Albert Einstein and Molly Pitcher to Milton Hershey and Helen Keller, the third graders covered a wide variety of influential historical figures. 

One senior remarked how she used to look up to the high schoolers when she was in elementary school and how special it is now that she gets to help PCA's rising generation. For other seniors, it took them back to the days where commas weren't as important and indenting paragraphs was a process rather than a habit. Overall, writing with the third graders was a rewarding and enriching experience for the third graders and seniors alike.
