 The Varsity Boys Basketball team did an amazing feat this past week.   The boys traveled down to College Station and captured the State Championship for 1A TCAL Basketball. For the MCA Guardians, this was a 3-peat – they have won this championship three years in a row.  Their coaches, Jeff Arrington and James Allen were really proud of the boys as they overcame adversity and played some very difficult games.  The competition was tough both in the semi-finals and in the finals.  In the semi-final game, they defeated Stephenville Faith which was rated number one in the tournament. Then in the finals, they defeated Sunnybrook Christian Academy.  MCA Guardians made a great showing and brought home the State Championship trophy for the 3rd year in a row.  Jairus Allen, named MVP of the tournament, as well as several other players received awards for these events.

At the beginning  of their season, the MCA Guardian Men’s Basketball team adopted I Corinthians 1:31, “Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord and what the Lord has done.”  At the end of the season, Jeff Arrington (Head Coach) shared a message about “before honor, comes humility.” He related this word because the Basketball team had done this all season long – by humbling themselves and honoring God first. In the end, he said, they were truly honored with a State Championship victory and many accolades from their peers and other coaches.  So remember, if you are going to boast, boast about what the Lord has done.

Jeff Arrington, our varsity basketball coach’s motto concerning our basketball program says, “Better Man… Better Baller.”  Our goal is to build character through sports.  We strive to use sports as a vehicle to get them to Christ.

Home basketball games are played at the First Baptist Church Family Life Center located at 422 W. Rusk St. in Marshall, TX.
