As the temperature changes and fall sports come to an end, it is important to take a look back at the past season of varsity Heritage High School fall sports.
To begin, the school softball team finished with a 10-14-1 record, which was enough to make the playoffs for the first time in five years. Jadyn W., ’22, reflects on the season.
“It was really cool to see the camaraderie of the girls and all the hard work we put in to finally do something we hadn’t done in a few years, and finally make the playoffs,” Jadyn stated.
Next, the football team finished with a 2-8 record, boys soccer finished 6-8-1 and volleyball finished with a record of 14-9. None of these three teams made it to the playoffs, but all three teams played well this season.
Moving from the turf and hardwood to the gymnastics mat, girls gymnastics finished ninth in the state, with Kate B., ’23, finishing third in the individual all-around competition. Kate reflected on what catapulted the team’s season.
“Due to competing in the spring last year, we had some momentum coming into this year. As the season went on, we just kept getting better and better,” Kate claimed.
To finish up, boys cross country finished ninth in the state and girls cross country finished eighth. Boys golf had a strong season, finishing fifth in the Continental League. Finally, boys tennis had a 7-3 record, finishing ninth in state championships.
Overall, it was a great fall sports season, and with the winter and spring seasons coming up, Heritage has a lot to look forward to in athletics.
“I’m excited to see how the freshmen and underclassmen step up and progress makes me really excited for the future!” Jadyn W., ’22, exclaimed.
