Be NOT afraid, O land; be glad and rejoice. Surely the LORD has done great things.
Joel 2:21

Chapel

Upper School

Upper School chapel this week was all about the differences of being "asleep" or "awake" to life. Mr. Turpin challenged students to list qualities of someone who is "asleep to life," or aren't adequately exploring the miracle of life that God gave us, and someone who is "awake to life," or who is living life to the fullest of their potential. Students listed being proactive, living in the moment, actively seeking to better yourself, and seeing God in all things as some of the qualities of an "awake to life" person. They listed having a narrow worldview, being lazy or apathetic, being superficial, complaining, and not making time for God as attributes of an "asleep to life" person. 

Thank you Heritage Parents!

 

This week was Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. Heritage parents were incredibly generous with their time and resources to provide treats for teachers and staff throughout the week. On Tuesday, parents said, "Thanks a Latte," and brought by each faculty member's favorite coffee shop beverage. On Wednesday, Heritage staff was treated to an incredible buffet of soup, salad, breads, desserts, and other delicious items in MPAC. Thursday brought a sugar rush of candy and cookies to the teacher workrooms, and on Friday each faculty member was given an entire pie to take home!

Thank you again for your kindness and generosity, Heritage parents and family! The appreciation is mutual!

Coach's Comments: Both teams were fired up for the playoff atmosphere, which caused us to struggle early on in the game. You could tell that we just weren’t ourselves early in the game as we were over-passing, over-dribbling, and our shots were long. We just had to settle down. Once we did, we caused Palmhurst to turn the ball over twelve times in the second quarter, which let us jump out to a 19-8 halftime lead. The girls were able to get to halftime, take a deep breath, and regroup. We played well in the second half and just had some silly mistakes down the stretch when we went to our "stall game." I expected us to have some jitters as we are a very young team, but we learned a few lessons and got the job done. 

Heritage      5     6     10    12      35

Calvary      17     0     10     9       37

Coach's Comments: The Lady Eagles traveled four hours to Conroe to play Cavalry Baptist on their home floor Tuesday night. They were the winner of their district and the Lady Eagles were the second seed. Calvary jumped out to a hot start, scoring the first 14 points of the game before Heritage was able to get on the board. After the ladies were able to take a deep breath, they fought hard to finish out the quarter and held Calvary to zero points in the second quarter, closing the halftime gap to six. The third quarter was back and forth between the teams. As the fourth quarter started, the Lady Eagles found themselves down only six after facing much adversity throughout the game. Heritage jumped all over the opportunity to advance in the playoffs, closing the lead down to two points only two minutes into the fourth quarter. Calvary opened the lead back up to five, then Heritage hit a late three to bring it to a two-point game. The Lady Eagles had a shot at winning the game with 1.8 seconds left on the clock. Livy Jons made a shot at the top of the key to win by one point at the buzzer, but the buzzer went off right before it left her hand, so the basket was no good.

I am very proud of the way that these ladies fought in this game. We had all of the cards stacked against us and yet still found a way to get this game to the wire.It’s how you carry yourself in moments like these and in this game they carried themselves like champions. I am so proud of them. Knowing that this was Hannah Bray's and Celia Ashley’s last time suiting up in a Heritage basketball uniform is something that will take a while to get over. They mean the world to me, along with this team. They are the reason that we have the program we have and are able to do the things we are able to do. They have sacrificed so much of their time to be committed to me as a coach and to continue to grow this program. I will forever be grateful that these young ladies were my starting freshman because they have expected only my best every day and never let me slack off at anything. I can say that the Heritage Lady Eagles basketball program is super bright as we will be returning seven girls, all who played major minutes this season. I can’t express how proud I am of the rest of the girls and how much they have grown this season. They make this team really fun to coach and give me so many laughs every day. The bond that we had with each other this season is incredible so it’s going to be a blast the next couple of years. I know the girls are going to put in a lot of work in the off-season and come back hungry for bigger and better things. I have to give Nora Brantley a huge shout out and tell her thank you for being a part of this journey with us. It’s always fun to have a "nanager" (a Nana and manager) on your team that can help everyone at any time. Thank you to all the parents, families and fans that supported us, helped us and gave us confidence through the year and along this journey.

VARSITY BOYS

 

Heritage                         7     12     11    15  -   45
Living Rock                     7       2      6      7   -   22

Points: John Fritzsch 7, Josh Hoermann 15, Caden Bray 5, Luke Roberts 5, Sam Richburg 9, Finn Sawtelle 2, Noah Given 2

Coach's Comments: This was the district championship game and the boys came out with a sense of urgency. This was by far our best defensive effort of the year. We held their top three players to a combined twelve points. That type of defense is championship caliber. We suffocated them, trapping on pick and rolls, fighting through screens, and eliminating back door cuts. This was a great team victory on to the playoffs.

-- Coach Clarence Stewart

 

Heritage                         12    25     26    16  -   79
Covenant Cypress           7     11      9     12   -  39

Points: John Fritzsch 28, Josh Hoermann 14, Caden Bray 7, Luke Roberts 4, Sam Richburg 19, Jack Henderson 5, Josh Tabor 2

Coach's Comments: We are really putting it all together at the right time, defensively and offensively. We hurt Covenant inside and outside. Big man John Fritzsch was a monster in this game with 28 points and 18 rebounds.

-- Coach Clarence Stewart

Playoffs

Buzzer beater win!

 

Heritage                          9     12      11     19  -   51
Spring Founders             14    10      12     12   -  48

Points: John Fritzsch 8, Josh Hoermann 17, Caden Bray 13, Luke Roberts 2, Sam Richburg 10, Noah Given 1
Coach's Comments: We came out in this game and played full-court, man-to-man defense on these guys all night. I knew we could play multiple guys and wear them down. Hats off to those guys - they played a heck of a game. Their leading scorer fouled out with four minutes left to go in the game and I felt like we had them on the ropes. It was back and forth like a heavyweight title fight. It was a tie game with seven seconds left and everyone looked at me. I yelled "Go Josh!", he took two dribbles up to court and found sophomore Caden Bray wide open on the wing for a three pointer. Caden was cool as ice, rose up and knocked down the game-winning three to advance us to Regional Finals!
