Maranatha’s Perry qualifies for state
Maranatha Christian Academy senior Brett Perry was able to breath a little bit easier at the end of the 5-1A regional meet after finding out that his high school career wasn’t over yet.Perry finished one spot ahead of Hirner with an eighth-place series of 595 to qualify for state for a third straight year.”Honestly, a relief. I’ve been nervous all year,” Perry said. “I’ve had expectations for the past two years and I’m just glad to be back. I’m just happy.”The Maranatha senior led the Eagles to ninth place. Perry couldn’t quite find his spot in Game 1, but was dialed in during Games 2 and 3 with scores of 212 and 216.
Maranatha Christian Academy’s boys basketball players had long-awaited Friday’s showdown against Crossroads Conference powerhouse Barstow, and they proved in the seconds after the opening tip that they were ready for arguably their biggest game of the season to this point. The Eagles upended the Knights, 57-42, after beginning the game on a 15-0 run. Barstow cut the deficit to three in the third quarter, but Maranatha kept the Knights at arm’s length after that to push its winning streak to 12 games.
