The Faribault Bethlehem Academy boys basketball team improved their record to 2-0 with a 64-41 win last night over United Christian Academy in Bloomington.

The Cardiinals jumped out to a 32-20 lead at the half and never looked back while owning the glass. BA had 44 rebounds total, 17 offensive with Hudson Dillon amassing 12 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists in the lopsided affair.

Bethlehem Academy Head Coach Ed Friesen says, "An ugly win is still a win."

Aaron Huerta also had a double-double for BA with 20 points, 11 rebounds.  Senior Charlie King added 12 points, 8 rebounds.

United Christian Academy announced plans recently to construct a new school in Lakeville. They have broken ground on a 45 acre site off I-35 and County Road 70.

The 180,000 square foot school will be built to educate approximately 1600 PreK through 12th grade students in the south metro.

The Thunder website timeline states  Pre-K will start next summer for up to 150 students.  In the fall of 2025 they anticipate opening the K-12 building including an athletic complex and outdoor performance stadium.

The current campus in Bloomington has students from 60 different communities attending.

The school was formed by combining the former Christian schools of Bethany Academy, life Academy of Bloomington and Christian Life Academy of Farmington.

No single denomination is followed, they tout themselves as a  "Private Christ-Centered" school.
