Sports Update

Game Recaps :
The Heritage girls team wrapped up their season with a 21-17 win at LIS. Team defense led the way, as the team worked together to limit the effectiveness of LIS's best players. The 4th and 5th grade team members showed much improved confidence on the offensive side of the ball, which really helped with ball movement and getting open shots over the last few games.

5/6th Boys:
The Heritage JV boys started their week last week with a trip north to Central Lutheran. The Eagles didn't look themselves on this Tuesday and could never get themselves going consistently. As a team, it was their lowest point total and their only loss of the year 22-21. Opportunities to win the game abounded but it wasn't meant to be. The boys were left with an opportunity to learn from a loss.

And learn they did... 

Just two nights later Trinity Lutheran came to the home of the Eagles. The JV came out focused and playing as well as we have seen them this year building a 20 point lead mid way through the game. Even as the pressure mounted in the 4th quarter under elevated stress from Trinity full court pressure, the boys remained poised and held out for a 38-26 win. The coaches were very proud of how they responded to the low feelings on Tuesday and how they came out flying on Thursday. Great job JV dudes!

The JV boys took to the court for a rematch with the LIS Panthers at their house this past Thursday. The Panther's small court and different floor gives them a strong home court advantage but the boys in blue once again were well prepared and came out focused and ready to play the game of basketball. Anyone who watched the game saw the JV put out one of their best efforts of basketball fundamentals. Great ball movement, teamwork and shot selection lead to a dominating first half leading 23-3. The aggressive, stingy defensive held out the rest of the game with final score ending at 36-10. Even the refs complimented the JV play. Great teamwork across the board for this solid and very fun win.

7/8th Boys:
The 7/8 th Boys Basketball team opened the week with a 46-40 victory over Mount Pleasant Christian. The Knights challenged the Eagles, but HCS always had the upper hand. Unfortunately, the streak ended Thursday night with a upsetting loss to Lutheran Interparish. The Eagles struggled from the beginning against the Panthers, but slowly started chipping away at the deficit in the third quarter. An unlucky injury that landed Luke Traetow on the bench altered the momentum of the game and LIS was able to capitalize on our deficiency. The Eagles fell to the Panthers 27-44. Leading scorers for the week were Trey Schweitzer with 17 points, Zachary Ahrens with 13 points, and Luke Traetow with 11 points. The Eagles are hoping for a win against their biggest nemesis, the Parents & Coaches on Tuesday and another win on Thursday at Mount Pleasant Christian.
