State of School

Heritage held a State of School event on Tuesday which showcased some of our students. Kindergarten students Autumn McCoy and Amos Fevig led the pledge, Ava Zimmerman recited from 1 Corinthians 13, and fifth graders sang all of the books of the Bible. Upper School students Sam Richburg and Livy Jons spoke about what the athletics program at Heritage has meant to them, and Hannah Bray articulately summarized the focus of her thesis. Mr. Mackintosh, Isabella Bourtin, and stand-in Alex Ludwig performed a scene from The Miracle Worker which will be presented on Saturday, May 9 at FTC. The event featured an update from board chairman Cherilynn Eggleston. She also told a moving story about a successful graduate who received both financial and community support. Mrs. Hierholzer touched on highlights of the year and coming events, especially the upcoming Kindergarten Preview Day on March 4, urging all parents to invite friends to come. Hugh Jons eloquently clarified our school finances and the need for tuition assistance. Milton Buckalew, the Gala 2021 chairman, announced the theme of the gala which will be an 80s dance party. He spoke passionately about the desire of the board to be able to offer a Heritage education to a wider, more diverse group of students through a robust tuition assistance program. 


Chapel this week was led in song by immensely talented Heritage alumnus Kenny Johnson (Class of 2012) on guitar. Mr. Mackintosh and a group of Local Missions Week veterans came to the front to talk about Local Missions Week and the impact it had not only on those they served, but also on them personally.

Fifth graders played bingo, sang, and passed out Valentines to residents at Heritage Place. 
Mr. Eggleston took the ninth grade class on a visit to the San Antonio Museum of Art to explore Egyptian, Greek, and Roman art. 
Seniors could be spotted daily this week interviewing local pastors. As part of their senior thesis, seniors have the opportunity to apply biblical thinking - a Christian worldview - to the issues they are confronting in their thesis. Four of our seniors had the privilege of meeting with Jason Banks (of Bridge Church) as well as Kelly Graham (formerly of Hill Country E-Free). Not featured is Jeff Hammond (of St. Barnabas), who met with Mason Barnett and Sam Cowsar on Tuesday. On the horizon we’ve got Tommy Russell (Fredericksburg Church) as well as Rob Holster (Hill Country Church) coming to spend time with the seniors. While it’s always worthwhile to research and read Scriptures and biblical commentaries, the experience of dialoging face-to-face with a pastor, candidly discussing how we apply theological principles to real life issues…it’s truly an extraordinary experience!  - Mr. Turpin



Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school this week and being 100 days smarter! 

10th Grade

STEM students in Mr. Elizondo's class are making the final changes to their color ball project; the project involves writing a program that will read a colored card (red, green, purple, etc.) using a light sensor and then convert it to something that the program understands. The result is an output signal that turns the ping pong ball the same color as the card stock.





Heritage                 7      10     13    26  -   56

Leading Scorers: Madison Brantley 17, Josie Fevig 17

Coach's Comments: The Lady Eagles traveled to San Marcos Friday night and played in a hostile environment as the winner would take second in district. The girls showed great pride and passion as they fought and scrapped for every point. Things were not going their way early and they got themselves into some foul trouble early in the game. The girls forced San Marcos to turn the ball over 22 times in the last quarter and a half. The girls outscored San Marcos 37-8 in the final 10 minutes of the ball game. We owe Mrs. Brantley a huge thank you for her special encouragement of the girls; this was a perfect example of what a team is. It doesn’t matter if you are on the court or not but everyone is important to this team. The girls are playing some great basketball as they head for their playoff run. I couldn’t be any more excited for them and what they have accomplished in such a short period of time.

-- Coach Kevin Perez


vs. Marble Falls Faith Academy

Heritage 42  MFFA 31
Scoring: Tres Jons 19, CJ Barnett 14, Tristan Roberts 9
Comments: This was a great way to end the season. We were able to work on things we needed to get ready for the CALSA Tournament and end with a win.   


Game 1  Vs. Buckner Fanning 
Heritage 34  Buckner 23 
Scoring: Tres Jons 15, CJ Barnett 13, Gauge Varwig 4, Tanner Tippens 1 

Comments: Though our offense could have been stronger, our defense was solid and created a lot of scoring opportunities. We kept up the defense and held on to win. 

Game 2 Vs. Northwest Hills
Heritage 34  NWH 25
Scoring: CJ Barnett 14, Tristan Roberts 13, Tres Jons 5, Tanner Tippens 2

Comments: The boys came ready to play. This was the best I have seen them all year. They were all fired up and feeding off of each other's energy. We jumped out to a 17-4 lead to end the first quarter. Tristan Roberts hit three 3-pointers in that first quarter. It was really fun to watch.

Game 3 Vs. Northwest Hills
NWH 36  Heritage 24
Scoring: CJ Barnett 12, Tres Jons 10, Gauge Varwig 2

Comments: We started out where we left off in the previous game until Tres Jons left the game in the second quarter due to a leg muscle injury. We still went into halftime with a 3-point lead. However, coming out in the second half with Tres injured we couldn’t get our energy and momentum back. 

Game 4 Northwest Hills
NWH 27  Heritage 17
Scoring: Tres Jons 11, Tristan Roberts 3, Gauge Varwig 2, Tanner Tippens 1

Comments: Without Tres Jons as part of the team, we struggled offensively. At halftime, we talked about playing for each other in order to build on something for next year. They started to get that fire back then and somehow Tres was able to feed off their energy and get back on the court to score 11 points and get us within 5. However, NWH started the stall game and we were having to scramble and foul, and just came up short.

Season Recap 
All in all, this was a great season. These boys improved and learned a lot. The lessons and accomplishments they had will be things they can carry on with them. I feel that they taught me some things as well.

Coach's Comments: We came out and took care of business in this game. We were led by point guard Josh Hoermann who had a triple double. He got us into our sets and led the way. Everyone got into the scoring books. We hope to carry this momentum into the post season.

Coach's Comments: Tonight, we honored our Seniors for the last home regular season game: Luke Roberts and Noah Given are two hard-working young men who plan to attend Texas A&M in the Fall. This was an important win to set up a game Wednesday night for the district championship vs Bulverde Living Rock.
