They were called upon by Grayson County Sheriff Richard Vaughan to help his department’s team.

Oak Hill Academy Red Team marks a win over Union

by Tobi S. ’20, 21st Century Journalism class

Brandon Dornevil goes up strong in a game earlier this season.

The Oak Hill Academy Red Team took on the Union High Bears from Big Stone Gap, Virginia, in a home game on January 22nd, 2019. The contest started off slowly for the Red Team, but they made a run during the second quarter to narrow the score and end the half down by only two, 29-27 in favor of the Bears. After halftime, the team began to make defensive stops and went on an offensive run with Noah A. ‘19 and Brandon D. ‘19 leading the charge. The Red Team pushed through and emerged with the lead in the third quarter, 49-38. The fourth quarter included a 1-2-2 press that caused many forced turnovers and allowed the Red Team to make numerous baskets. The highlight of the night, and a play that sealed the game, was Brandon’s steal and drive for an ‘And-1’ basket. The top scorers of the game were Brandon with 21 points, Noah with 18 points and Delaney H. ’20 with 11 points. Following the game, Coach Michael Burns commented, “Our guys struggled early in the game and trailed at the half. But the guys came out as a team in the second half, stuck to our plan, and got the win.”

The Oak Hill Academy Red Team faced off against Bristol Prep of Tennessee on November 2, 2018. A fan, Eddie M. ’20 exclaimed, “The game was a nail-biter, but I am glad that I got to watch this exciting win!” The game started off with little offense but great defense on both sides of the court. The score at the end of the first quarter was 7-10 with Bristol Prep ahead. In the second quarter, the Red Team created more offense with Noah A. leading the charge, scoring 10 points and setting up his teammates with nice assists. The score at the end of the second quarter was 25-18 with the Warriors in the lead. The Red Team continued to run up the score in the third quarter, this time with Owen C. scoring 12 points and grabbing multiple rebounds. At the end of the third quarter, it was 49-39 in favor of OHA. During the fourth quarter, Bristol Prep made a comeback, tying the game up. However, the Red Team maintained its composure and made critical free throws. Delaney H. commented, “The game was very close, but I think that our ability to stay calm and play our game allowed us to come out on top.” The final score of the game was 61-60 with the Red Team capturing the win. Coach Burns, assistant coach stated, “The boys won that game tonight through pure determination.” The leading scorer for the Red Team was Noah, with 20 points. He also had the highest number of assists with 8. Delaney pulled in the most rebounds at 6.

Red Team Season Recap 2017-2018

Oak Hill Red Team 3-Peats as NACA National Champions: A Full Season Recap
Mike Burns, Assistant Coach

The 2017-2018 Oak Hill Red Team Warriors had one thing in mind when the season began: embrace challenges and grow together. If those two things happened, the wins and losses would work themselves out. The story of the season played out over the course of three distinct chapters.

Early Season Chapter:
Oak Hill Red began the season 4-4, while experiencing the adversity of losing a prominent player to injury for the remainder of the fall semester. Before Christmas, the Red Team was scheduled to participate in the Millennium Financial Classic in Charlotte, North Carolina. In three games versus quality opponents that proved to be an early season test, the Red Team won all three games (69-46 vs. Charlotte Learning Academy; 54-53 vs. Elevation Prep; 49-40 vs. Victory Christian). The strong appearance in Charlotte, plus a few more victories before Christmas break, brought the Red Team record to 9-4.

Forming a Team Identity: Red Team on The Road Chapter:
After returning from Christmas break, the Red Team hit the road hard, travelling to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to play South Carolina State Runner Up, Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach, and another school with athletic tradition, Cheraw. Oak Hill Red won both of these games, 72-52 vs. CAMB and 65-52 vs. Cheraw. Exactly one week later Oak Hill Red Team would travel to Atlanta, Georgia, to face 2017 GICAA State Champions Dawson Christian, and 2018 GICAA State Champions Cumberland Christian. Once again Oak Hill Red came away with two huge victories, 91-87 vs. Dawson Christian and 54-43 vs. Cumberland Christian. These long road trips enabled the team to bond on and off the court and create a culture that is hard to find within most high school basketball teams. This culture and team chemistry allowed the Red Team to finish the regular season 16-9 and enter the National Association of Christian Athletes (NACA) National Tournament playing some of their best basketball.

Peaking at the Right Time: NACA National Tournament Chapter
The NACA National Tournament took place February 21st-23rd in Dayton, Tennessee. This tournament requires a team to win 4 games in 3 days in order to be champions, something the Oak Hill Red Team had achieved in back to back years, 2016 and 2017. This year’s NACA was an opportunity for the Oak Hill Red Team to win three consecutive national championships. To open the tournament, Oak Hill Red played Saints Academy from Florida and quickly announced their presence with a 64-31 victory. In the second round, Oak Hill faced a familiar NACA foe in Lighthouse Christian (TN)–a tough game in which Oak Hill Red came out victorious 51-48. On the same day, the Warriors had to face Covenant Christian (GA), a rematch of last year’s NACA Championship game, and the last team standing in the way of a chance at another tournament championship game. Oak Hill Red found the rhythm in the second half and pulled away from Covenant in the final minutes, winning 61-53.

Oak Hill Red had to beat Knoxville Christian (TN), whose coach is an Oak Hill alumnus, in order to raise another banner. To start the game, Oak Hill Red jumped out to an early 17-7 lead, but found itself in a battle with a 24-18 halftime score. In the second half the Warriors took over by attacking the basket and forcing Knoxville Christian to foul, ultimately winning 61-46 and claiming a third straight National Championship.

Pictured Below: Three Oak Hill players were named to the NACA All-Tournament Team: Christian McCray (second from left), Donovan Saine (middle) and Idrissa Sow (far right). McCray was named NACA Tournament MVP, averaging 19ppg and 6rpg for the tournament.
