Putnam Science Academy wins 2022 National Prep Championship

Putnam Science Academy claimed the 2022 National Prep Championship on Friday by defeating Northfield Mount Hermon School in the finals at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, Connecticut. 

The Mustangs opened the week with a win over Bradford Christian Academy in the round of 16 on Tuesday night before a hard fought win over Sunrise Christian Academy in Thursday's quarterfinal. 

Friday began with a convincing semifinal win over Scotland Campus paving the way to the final later that night. NMH was able to keep it close for the first half before the depth of PSA gradually allowed them to pull away in the second. 

Desmond Claude earned MVP honors and paced the team on the offensive end while Ugonna Kingsley was dominant protecting the rim on the defensive end. Barry Evans, Dashon Gittens, Arturo Dean, and Mouhamed Dioubate all played significant roles all week as well. 

Here's a look back at some of the sights and sounds of the championship.
