Joel wins the tip over (waayyy over) an Elmwood defender
In a Friday afternoon match-up with the Elmwood Baptist Eagles out of Brighton, The DPCA Eagles played a consistent game in the Front Range Christian Athletic Association Semi-Finals, advancing to the final, league championship game in Denver March 2.

Led by senior Micah Ritschard, who brought in 15 points playing his final game on his home court, the DPCA Eagles put up 43 points to Elmwood's 22. Joel Parker, with 8 points, and Noah Ritschard and Jase Staudt, both with 7, made solid contributions to the scoring as well, while steady rebounding led by Parker and Hawk White helped keep DPCA comfortably in the lead all four quarters. The semi-final squad was rounded out by Nathan Van Deel, Juan Burdick, and Seth Turner.

With the game held earlier in the day than usual, DPCA students were able to attend as part of the end of the school day and cheer on the team. Coach Devon Toll ended the afternoon congratulating the team and encouraging the squad to rest well and prepare for their final game of the 2012-2013 season:  the FRCAA B Division Championship at 1:00 PM March 2. GO EAGLES!
