The Bethlehem Christian Academy baseball team made school history last spring by winning the GISA Class A state championship.
The Knights are set to begin the 2014 campaign Friday, but there will be some new faces along with a new head coach as BCA attempts another postseason run. BCA will host Killian Hill Friday at 4 p.m.
Colby May, a former player at the University of Georgia, is now guiding the Knights, taking over for former coach Nick Pou, who is now coaching Islands High School. May said the team has been working hard in preparation for the new season.
Things are going well,” May said. “The players are eager for the new season. We are missing six players who are still involved with basketball, but that has given our younger players a chance to show what they can do. It will be a good experience for our freshman and others to get a chance to play early in the season.”
The BCA boys basketball team begins play in the state tournament Thursday so it is doubtful those players will be available for action Friday.
“The players are responding to what we are showing them,” May said. “We have put them through some tough situations. We want them to be ready for the pressure they will face. We still have some work to do, but there is potential.”
Following Friday’s opener, BCA will travel to The Weber School Monday (4 p.m.) and to Monsignor Donovan March 7 (4 p.m.) The team will host Loganville Christian March 8 at 2:30 p.m. before the Region 1-A schedule begins March 18 against Thomas Jefferson at home.
“Once we are at full strength, I think we are going to be a good team,” May said.
