Winter Sports (November-February)


Middle School & Varsity Cheerleading

Our cheerleaders are coached by Mrs. Beckie Smith. Coach Smith is very passionate about her job and enjoys working with our girls. The cheerleaders 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. They cheer for all home basketball games for our Varsity Girls’ basketball team. The JCA cheerleaders are well known for their great school spirit.

Junior Varsity Girls’ Basketball

Our JV 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.

Junior Varsity Boys’ Basketball

Our boys in sixth through eighth grade go through try-outs in November. Watching our JV boys will give you a taste of the love and excitement boys show in their athletic endeavors. In the 2020 season, our boys won first place in the NCCAA conference tournament. The JV boys are coached by Mr. RJ Mantlo and his assistant,  Mr. Rob Mantlo.

Varsity Girls’ Basketball

Owning one conference championship, our Varsity Girls’ Basketball team has been a steady force in the NCCAA conference. In the 2020 season, our girls won Christian Testimony at the NCCAA conference tournament. 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 varsity girls 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.

Varsity Boys’ Basketball

Fast paced, exciting, never-say-die. These are just a few of the adjectives that describe our Varsity Boys’ program.  In the 2020 season, our varsity boys won Christian Testimony at the NCCAA conference tournament. The varsity boys are coached by Mr. RJ Mantlo and his assistant, Mr. Rob Mantlo.
