The Annapolis Area Christian boys basketball team has stepped up to the daunting challenge of the MIAA A Conference in 2017, but before the Eagles leap into their new league they opened their season on Wednesday with a 64-43 win over St. Mary’s, one of their former rivals in the B Conference.

The Eagles doubled up the host Saints, 14-7, in the first quarter and built their lead gradually from there.

St. Mary’s (0-2) got a team-high 11 points from Patrick Devitt and nine point from Cam Brown.
