Heroes Spring Season State Tournaments and Updates for the Fall Sports Season
We have 4 more varsity teams competing in the CAA State Tournament this weekend, Boys Volleyball, Baseball, Softball, Girls Soccer, & Golf.
Varsity Boys Volleyball
Coach Daniels and the varsity team finished the regular season with a 10-4 record and in 4th place in DII. The team is loaded with seniors and is ready to make a push into the post-season. The Heroes played in the quarter-final Tuesday and won a tough game 3 sets to 2.
They will now play in the state semi-final tonight 5/6, at Dream City Christian. The state championship game will be held on Saturday at Thunderbird High School.
The Heroes softball team finished in the 2nd seed with a regular season record of 12-1. Coach Zappa’s team is young, with no seniors, but they have hot bats, great pitching, and a solid defense, outscoring their opponents 231-27.
They beat Heritage Mesa in the semi-final on Wednesday and are headed to a rematch with Imagine Surprise to avenge their only loss of the season, a pitchers duel that ended 4-3.
The championship game will be held on Monday (5/9) at 5:15p.
Girls soccer is trying to repeat as state champions. They finished the season 10-2 and as the 2nd seed. Their two losses came from EVAC, their opponent in last year’s state championship game. Coach Miller is anticipating another great state championship to bring home their second girl varsity soccer banner! They are headed to the chamionship game being held on Saturday at 7:15p at the ASU West Complex.
This is our first year competing in the state championship series for golf. We are sending 6 Hero Golfers to Prescott on Saturday to play in the state tournament. Coach Hunsaker is extremely happy with how these scholars have performed and the work they put in to be able to make the state tournament.
Our Heroes sports programs are looking to add more banners to our wall. In the fall, our scholar-athletes will be working to continue our reputation of excellence in these high school sports: girls volleyball, boys and girls swim, 8-man tackle football, boys soccer, boys and girls cross country, and the addition of Varsity Girls Flag Football.
We have two coaching vacancies for next year that we are trying to fill. Unfortunately, Coach Ramirez and Coach Rowan will not be returning to Heritage Academy for the 22-23 season. Coach Ramirez has led our football programs for the last three years, including two successful years as our varsity football coach. He has done a great job getting our program off the ground and done amazing things with the football players on campus. Coach Rowan was new to us last year when he took over our basketball program and our weight room. He led our team through a tumultuous year and earned a lot of respect from our players and parents. We wish both of these exemplary Heroes and their families success in their next endeavors.
The Heritage Administration is actively looking for top coaching candidates. If you know of anyone interested in these positions, please ask them to submit an application and to email Mr. Miller ASAP. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
