'With only four days of practicing as a full team, we have a lot to get better at, but that was a really good win against a really good AAA team that we can celebrate, but now it's time to get to work,' said Head Coach Adam Callaway.

The win against Trinity was also Coach Callaway's 100th Varsity win with a record of 101-34 at RTCA. 'I was surprised! I knew I was getting close but didn't know exactly how far off I was. I couldn't have done any of this without my past and present players, this is more about them than it is me. But I'm very happy to have won 100 games and hope there's many more to come,' added Coach Callaway.

Girls vs. Bulloch

On Friday, December 3, the Lady Crusaders took on another top competitor Bulloch Academy. Bulloch Academy defeated the Lady Crusaders 54-9.

Lady Crusaders Head Coach Jacob Wilkinson had this to say about the game, 'Bulloch Academy is a very talented team and most likely the best team we will face. I felt like we competed and played hard and never gave up. Now that we have seen them play, we can adjust and be ready for next time. As I've said before, we play these types of teams for a reason. We want to be prepared for anyone come late January and February. We have to keep working and focus on us and our goal for this season.'

The top scorers for Friday's game was sophomore Ansley Akins with 5 points and sophomore Meredith Durden with 4 points.

Boys vs. Bulloch

RTCA's Varsity Boys Basketball team defeated Bulloch Academy 56-17. Top scorer for the Crusaders was senior MK Mc-Bride with 19 points. Senior Tyler Buggs and sophomores Drew Vaughn and Aaron Hankerson each had 7 points, followed by junior JaShaun Powell with 6 points. Coach Callaway stated, 'The boys played extremely well on the defensive end of the floor. We harped all week that our defense had to get better, and they bought into the task of holding Bulloch to zero points in the first quarter and only seven points in the second quarter.' This week RTCA took on Pinewood after presstime and will be back on the court on Thursday at home against Thomas Jefferson at 6:00 p.m. and then on Friday they will travel to Bulloch Academy at 6:00 p.m.
