The Heartland Football team played their final regular season game of the year on Friday at home against Ravenna. The first score of the game went to the Huskies with a 49 yard run by Kale Wetjen and a point after by Jackson Stebbing to show 8-0 on the scoreboard in favor of the Huskies. After that, however, it was almost all the Bluejays. In the 4th quarter, Trev Peters made a 51 yard run for a touchdown, but no point after was scored. The final score was Ravenna 78 – Heartland 14.
“Our record doesn’t show how much better we got as the season went on,” commented coach Lindsay. “The boys did a great job improving over the year. We also had a lot of them step up into leadership roles from the freshman to the seniors. Unfortunately, we had some injuries during the year that forced us to play some guys out of position at times. We had a really tough district and the boys competed well.”
On Saturday, the Freshman volleyball players played their final games of the season at a tournament in Seward. They won one game against Crete and lost two (Seward and Columbus) to place 7th in the tournament.
