Multiple Teams · Junior High Boy’s Basketball Dominate the 2019 – 2020 CAA Season


On  February 1st,  the 2019 – 2020 American Leadership Academy Gilbert North Junior High Boy’s Varsity Basketball team completed an undefeated season winning the Canyon Athletic Association’s state championship for Junior High boy’s basketball.  The ALA Eagles Junior High Varsity finished their CAA season with a record of 19 – 0.   Twelve (12) of ALA’s nineteen (19) wins were against top-ten opponents. The Eagles accomplishments include beating the third-ranked (#3) and the fourth-ranked (#4th) teams three times each.  What is even more impressive, only two games were decided by a margin less than ten (10) points. Truly a dominant performance.  

Overall, the ALA Gilbert North Junior High Boys Basketball program went 30 – 0 for the 2019 – 2020 CAA season.  Junior Varsity also went 11 – 0 with an average margin of victory of twenty (20) points. 

Winning the CAA State Championship caps off an impressive three-year run headed by Coach Mike Paynes.  Coach Paynes has been the junior high varsity basketball coach since the campus opened in 2017. Check out the record of the program since 2017.
