The Troy Christian boys basketball team captured a share of the Three Rivers Conference championship with a 11-3 record in the league and an 18-6 overall record. The Eagles share the title with Milton-Union (11-3, 19-5 overall) and Miami East (11-3, 16-6 overall).
Leading the way for the Eagles in their inaugural season in the Three Rivers Conference were sophomore guard Parker Penrod and senior guard Lucas Day. Penrod scored 317 points throughout the season for an average of 13.2 points-per-game, while Day accumulated 236 total points for a 10.3 average.
Penrod was a first-team selection in the Three Rivers Conference, while Day was elected to second-team.
Sophomore guard Alex Free led the Eagles with 128 rebounds on the year and 6-3 junior forward Ben Major contributed with 89 total rebounds.
Troy Christian opened up the season with seven straight wins before dropping a razor-thin 45-43 contest to Graham for their first loss.
The Eagles then ran off five more wins against Fairlawn, Lehman Catholic, Bethel, Covington and Bradford to improve to 12-1 midway through January.
Unfortunately, Troy Christian dropped three of their next games – two coming to TRC foes Milton-Union and Miami East – who ultimately shared the league title with the Eagles.
Four straight wins over Emmanuel Christian, Northridge, Springfield Central Catholic and Bethel followed to set up a crash with Lehman with the opportunity to gain sole possession in the TRC standings.
Unfortunately the Eagles came up short 56-48 to end their season at 11-3 in the league and 17-5 overall.
Six days later Troy Christian made amends against Lehman in the opening round of the sectional tournament – beating the Cavaliers 54-42.
Troy Christian ended its season in the second round of the tournament with a defeat to Fort Loramie, but had already established itself as one of the favorites in 2022-23.
