Trinity Christian Academy (TCA) located at 1498 W. 84 Street in Hialeah, defeated Wade Christian Academy of Melbourne in the FCAA State Basketball Championship in Ft. Pierce on March 4.
TCA's boys’ varsity basketball head coach, Robert Donahue, a Miami Lakes Middle School and Hialeah Miami Lakes Senior High alumnus, led the TCA Crusaders to the win with a final score of 61-53 effectively ending Wade's fourth consecutive state title.
“In the final game, our big guys down low contributed greatly to our win by opening things up for our speedy guards allowing them to score,” said Donahue.
Aside from the FCAA State Champions title, TCA also holds the Independent School League (ISL) Championship title which they claimed by defeating Spirit of Christ High School, 65-59 on February 26. TCA ended the 2013-2014 season with a 23-4 record.
“I’m so proud of these young men. They have overcome so much and fought extremely hard to get where they are. With only two current seniors not returning to the team next year, expectations are high. We will continue to work and improve in the off season to keep the championships at Trinity and start our own dynasty,” said Donahue.
