Basketball Drops Region Tournament Opener at Aquinas

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The First Presbyterian Day School boys basketball team (13-12) dropped its GHSA region 7 tournament opener on the road, falling 86-46 to Aquinas High School on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

FPD trailed 23-14 at the end of the first quarter as the Fightin’ Irish ended the quarter on a 12-2 run.

In the second quarter the Vikings were outscored 26-8, trailing 49-22 at halftime.

FPD scored 14 in the third quarter and 10 in the fourth frame, but it was not enough to counter the offensive punch from Aquinas and junior sensation Ahmed Hill, who scored 36 points on the night.

FPD was led by the 16 points of senior forward Caleb Dupree and the 10 points of freshman guard O’Showen Williams.

The loss to Aquinas marks the end of the 2012-13 campaign for the Vikings. The Vikings will lose six seniors due to graduation: Sam Joyce, Max Chandler, Sam Pope, Brooks Stroud, Kaleb Fuller and Caleb Dupree.

The FPD Athletic Department sincerely thanks the Class of 2013 for their hard work and dedication to FPD. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
