Winston Salem Christian School (WSCS) is adding two more teams to their basketball program this year to enhance an already successful program. This Spring WSCS struck a deal with Coach Antonio Lowe, the former head men’s coach at Moravian Prep, to become the director of basketball operations and begin a national men’s team and post grad men’s team.  

As director of basketball operations, Lowe will manage student housing for basketball athletes, travel for basketball athletes, college visits, and scheduling for the national and post grad level for the men’s teams.

Lowe is joining an already impressive coaching staff on the men’s basketball side. Head Men’s Varsity Coach Jon Weavil (201 career wins) and his staff enjoyed tremendous success and made national waves this past season, going an impressive 34-7 (12-0 in conference play). The team brought home a CCC Conference Championship, finished 3rd in the CAA4SC State Tournament, and ended the season 2nd in the CAA4SC state ranking on Max Preps.  

Coach Lowe has racked up an overall record of 142-44 in five years of experience and gained nationwide notoriety through his coaching and recruiting ability. Lowe looks to bring a national team to Winston-Salem Christian with the same energy, skill, and depth that he had developed at Moravian Prep over the last two seasons. His plan to bring college coaches to WSCS will provide looks for athletes at all levels of basketball play. Lowe will also be integral in developing a post grad program that will operate under the WSCS basketball umbrella and support athletes as they continue training to make the jump to collegiate athletics. 

The decision to add a national and post grad program for men piggybacked off the tremendous success of the implementation of a women’s national team this past season. With former NBA player Delaney Rudd at the helm, the WSC National girls went an impressive 28-2 on the national level during regular season play. They won the Independent Exposure National Tournament in March and were as high as number 9 in the nation on ESPNw Girls High School rankings. All of the team’s starters have major D1 offers on the table and this success has trickled down to the varsity level as well. Under Coach Rocky Brundage, the varsity girls program (32-5) brought home a CCC Conference Championship and finished as runners-up in the CAA4SC state championship.  

Basketball is just one of many avenues athletes can pursue at WSCS. For more information on becoming a WSCS Lion, please visit www.wschristian.com or email Athletic Director Miranda Tilley at mtilley@nullwschristian.com.
