Cape Fear Christian Academy has turned to its past for future guidance of its girls basketball program.
Bobby Lamb will coach the Eagles again after assisting Clinton in recent seasons, including a state 2A championship for the Lady Dark Horses in 2017.
That Clinton team included Mikayla Boykin, who scored a state record 62 points in a game. Boykin is now in the women’s basketball program at Duke.
Lamb coached the CFCA girls to a 14-14 record in 2015-16, the last time the Lady Eagles were in the North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association 1A playoffs.
Lamb helped Phydel Nwanze and Madison Turlington from that team move on to the collegiate level. Nwanze redshirted at Morehead State in Kentucky last season. Turlington, now Madison Sexton, started six games for Queens in Charlotte last season.
Lamb takes over a youthful program with the aim of developing a competitive group over several years. CFCA competed primarily as a junior varsity team in 2017-18.
“I’m glad to be back at Cape Fear Christian,” Lamb said.
An Army veteran, Lamb has been pastoring United Holiness Church in Kenansville for 24 years.
