Coach’s Comments: Congratulations to this awesome group of guys on a wonderful season and an STFC Championship!

What a great showing from the Eagles this week! The last two regular season games were tough, physical games that we emptied our collective tanks to win. Heading into the Championship, we knew that we would be facing a Castle Hills team that was itching to get another shot at us.  We focused this past week on doing our job and trusting our brother to do his. The product of that labor was on full display Thursday night.

After a rough first quarter that was characterized by both teams feeling each other out and trying to shake off some big-game jitters, these young men found their footing and began to assert themselves. The offense was relentless and put a ton of pressure on Castle Hills. Their defense had no answers for the one-two punch of Bridger and Will. Every time Castle thought they had a solution our receivers would make them pay with a big gain. Our efficiency was ridiculous. The Eagle defense played lights out and held Castle Hills scoreless after the first quarter. Defense is undoubtedly the hardest part of 6-man football and our defense made it look easy Thursday night. What a time for everything to click!

This season has been so much fun. There is nothing quite like being around a group of young men who are figuring out how to handle themselves in a physical game like football. This team was all in from the first day of practice and committed themselves to improve each week. More than anything, I will remember this group of young men for their willingness to get better each day. I know many of you who have watched the progression of this team will agree.
Bridger, Will, and Kaleb were the core of this team. I am thrilled with their play but am more impressed with their attitude. (I love you guys! Keep the pedal to the metal and go win State with varsity next year!) The sixth and seventh grade boys know what it will take to do this again next year. I can’t wait to get started!
Coach Moldenhauer, Coach McKinney and Coach Goodman have been a fantastic team this year. I have had a blast going through this season with them. Trent Williams was also a huge help! (Maybe next year we can get Coach Chris to raise the intensity just a bit…) Leslie McKinney, Dawnette Nelson, Cayenne Goodman and Kelly Greyson were also so much help this year. Thanks for taking care of these young men!

Championships are always special. This group of 12 young men have accomplished something that can never be taken away from them. I am grateful that I got to come along for the ride!
Heritage students and staff came out of class to send our Logic team off in style!

Chapel

Grammar School

In Grammar School chapel, fifth grade students led the audience in a Latin lesson. Mrs. Brantley asked students how they prepared for COVID, buying masks, hand sanitizer, etc, and how that related to Jesus teaching the disciples and people of Israel how to be prepared for hardships to come after His death.

Upper School

Pastor John Music of Comfort Baptist Church (Mrs. Music's husband) took words from Psalm 23 and spoke about how even in the worst of times, when it seems like everything around us is falling apart, God is still our confidence. In troubled times, social media is not our shepherd, God is. He leads His sheep, and leads us in paths of righteousness. All we have to do is focus on Him, instead of mortal distractions and heed His voice.

Thank you for your words of wisdom, especially now, Pastor Music!

Election Day at Grammar School

Fourth grade hosted an election day of their own on Tuesday, complete with voting booths, stickers, and polling workers! They invited other grades in Grammar School to cast their ballot.

Fourth Grade Field Trip

Before fall break, fourth grade took a field trip to the scenic, "Cave with No Name" and panned for gems.

Fifth Grade Descriptive Paragraphs

In fifth grade, students have noticed how authors stop the story to describe the setting. We have been practicing descriptive writing in the classroom, but today we took our writing outside. The goal was for students to slow down, be still and silent, observe God's creation, thank Him for creating this fallen yet beautiful world for us, and write a descriptive paragraph on this beautiful Fall day.

- Mrs. Stollenwerck

ATHLETICS

Cross Country

On Monday, the cross country team headed up to Waco to compete at the State Cross Country Championship. The athletes that qualified for the event were Sophomores Josh Tabor and Alex Ludwig, and Freshmen Elaina Craven and Mady Smith. Elaina Craven placed higher than any Heritage cross country girl has ever placed. She was able to secure 2nd place, running a 13:04 in the two-mile course. Mady Smith ran the course in a time of 17:51, which gave her 35th place. Josh Tabor was also able to put on a strong performance, finishing 7th place with a time of 18:48. Alex Ludwig, who has been splitting duty between football and cross country, ran an amazing race, finishing 21st with a time of 20:10. Josh and Alex both competed in the state meet last year and were able to improve more than twenty-four places, and shave off more than two minutes off of their state time.
Elaina Craven and Josh Tabor were named to the All-State Team!!
It’s sad that this season is coming to an end as it has been so enjoyable and such a positive for all of us. During these COVID times, these athletes were able to find the fun and joy of the sport and smile each day. I am truly blessed to be able to coach them and it was fun to see them compete on Monday. It is also so heartwarming that they are so eager to get back to the state meet as I had kids asking what it will take to win next year. It allows for a great story down the road. The future for these athletes are super bright, and I personally can’t wait to see what they accomplish in the spring in track!
