The Creative Technologies Academy girls’ basketball team earned its first victory in school history last week. The first year program took on Grattan Academy in Greenville Tuesday night, January 12, and came away with a 21-16 double-overtime win.

Coach Robin Greene, who also earned her first career coaching victory, praised the effort of the CTA team saying, “Our girls fought and scrapped the whole game tonight. Our defense played strong, and we made shots when we needed them. I can’t say enough about how hard we played.”

Seventh grader Hannah Hubbard led the way for the Chargers with 6 points, while juniors Trisha Davies and Evie Ramirez chipped in 4 apiece. Senior Cassie Dille grabbed 15 rebounds and 10 steals and showed solid leadership on the court. The CTA Chargers ended regulation tied 16-16 with Grattan Academy, after a flurry of chances in the waning seconds. Neither team could find the bottom of the basket in the first overtime, but CTA charged back in the second OT with five unanswered points to take the victory.

Coach Greene praised both teams after the game. “Our defense toughened up in overtime and didn’t allow them to score, and our offense made the right passes and took good shots to seal the win for us. Our team played smart tonight, played tough tonight, and that’s why we were successful. I have a lot of respect for Grattan and their coaches; they beat us the first time we played, and we were fortunate enough to get them this time. I am so proud of our girls!”

CTA looks to build on this victory and solidify a strong girls basketball program for years to come. Greene says,” This can be the start of some great things for CTA girls basketball. It is wonderful to see the fans and families supporting us at all of our games, and really builds school spirit and community.”
