Boys Basketball Meets High Expectations


Micah Hill, Editor

This year’s basketball seasons are coming up and the expectations for the teams are really high. This year is full of really good athletes, and multi-sports athletes who are all competing with their eyes on going to state this year. 

One expectation for Heritage Boys Basketball this year is to make the state playoffs and compete for a title” said Garrett Jackson, a junior.

While last year’s team struggled, resulting in a record of 2-10, this year’s team is already off to a good start. 

The Boys Varsity team played Pea Ridge on Tuesday Nov. 10, winning a landslide 74-28. (The Girls team was under quarantine and cannot play their first two scheduled games.)

Sophomore James Isbell was a stand-out player in his first-ever Varsity game. 

Boys Varsity Head Coach Tom Olsen said,  “This year we have a great team and are expecting big things from this group of young men; they have worked really hard and they earned it.”

Though this is a promising start, the presence of Covid-19 cannot be ignored. However, plans are in place in case teams miss conference games because of the pandemic. The plan is to have a conference tournament determining who goes to the state tournament.
