Heroes Athletics Fall Sports Update
Our varsity volleyball (13-2) and football (6-2) teams have finished successful regular seasons and are headed to the playoffs!
Volleyball beat D1 rivals Ridgeline Academy for their last game to prepare for their playoff run. Ridgeline had only one previous loss coming into the game. Our Heroes lost the first set but then made short work of the Eagles winning the next three sets (25-11, 25-14, 25-19). Our varsity volleyball team is led by senior, Kenzie Abercrombie and the high-level play of sophomore, Avory Oosthuizen.
Our JV girls volleyball (11-1) team dominated their way through the year as well. Their last game was against division foe and previously unbeaten Southwest Leadership Academy. There is no post-season play for the JV level so this game felt like the DII championship as the top two teams went head to head in the last game. Led by the season-long consistent play of Valerie Camacho (jr), Brooklyn Stoker (so), and Katelyn Kientzler (8th), the Heroes came out on top in straight sets.
Our Heroes football team is enjoying a 6 game win streak heading into a bye week before the playoffs. The Heroes are clicking offensively and defensively, having scored 228 points and only allowed 20 over those 6 games. The offense is led by sophomores Darius Brown, Courtney Palmer, and freshman Brendan Hunt. Defensively, last year’s first team all state standouts, Martreon Risper (jr) and Sam Coates (jr) are shutting down offenses once again with the help of Christian Mylek (so).
Our swim and cross-country teams are finishing up their seasons in the next couple weeks with their state meets. They have been bringing home trophies all season to add to our trophy case.
The girls volleyball team will host a playoff game at the Heroes Gym on Thursday (10/28), the time will be set early next week. Our football team will also host a first round playoff game on Friday 11/5. Look for updates to your emails and on our social media platforms.
JH Q1 Fall Sports Completes Season
All of our JH Q1 teams completed very successful seasons. Each of them headed to the playoffs. The JH Coed Soccer team brought home our first JH state championship with a big win in the state title game. Isabella Gomez (7th) and Tadashi Harris (6th) were awarded players of the game, while captain, JJ Turcott (8th), hoisted the championship trophy.
Heroes baseball went to the state championship game for the second year after winning the regional trophy. They added a state runner-up trophy to the case as well. Dylan Hopper (8th) pitched a great game in the final and Kai Klepfer (7th) hit an inside-the-park homerun.
The Heroes girls basketball team made vast improvements over last season, making it to the playoffs with a 10-0 record. Sixth grader, Zena Palmer led the team in scoring with the court presence of Tirza Cortes (8th) in support. All of our JH teams completed great first seasons. In Q2 we will see JH Boys Volleyball, Girls Softball, and Wrestling competing.
