Winter Sports (November-February)


Middle School Cheerleading

Coached by Mrs. Tammy Strickland, from Jacksonville, NC and a graduate of Welch College, our middle school girls try out for a spot on the JV cheerleading in April prior to the upcoming school year. They cheer for all home basketball games for our Varsity Girls’ basketball team. Our cheerleaders are well known for their great school spirit.

Varsity Cheerleading

Our high school girls try out for cheerleading in April prior to the upcoming school year.  Beginning practice and camps during the summer, they are a great asset to our school, making our basketball season all the more exciting with high-flying basket tosses and cheers loud enough to raise the roof.
The Varsity cheerleaders are coached by Mrs. Tammy Strickland.  Tammy is very passionate about her job and enjoys working with our girls.

Middle School Girls’ Basketball

Our middle school girls are coached by Mrs. Victoria Cominskie, a Hoosier from the state of Indiana and a graduate of Southeastern FWB College. Try-outs are in November.  Our girls start as young sixth graders just learning about the game. By the time they reach eighth grade, they have a good grasp of the basics and are ready to move up to the varsity level.

Middle School Boys’ Basketball

Our boys in sixth through eighth grade go through try-outs in November. Watching our middle school boys will give you a taste of the love and excitement boys show in their athletic endeavors. Our boys are coached by Mr. RJ Mantlo, an alumni of JCA.

Varsity Girls’ Basketball

Owning one conference championship, our Varsity Girls’ Basketball team has been a steady force in the NCCAA conference. We have had four players go on to play college level basketball, including three that played on a team that won the college NAIA tournament.  The Conquerors have been coached by Ms Kim Zegelien, a native of Jacksonville, NC, for the last twelve years. Coach Zegelien graduated from Welch College with a degree in Physical Education.

Fast paced, exciting, never-say-die. These are just a few of the adjectives that describe our Varsity Boys’ program.  In the 2013 season ,our boys finished second in the NCCAA conference tournament. The Conquerors are coached by Mr. RJ Mantlo and Mr. Sam Hodges, a 16 year veteran of the USMC.
