Home School HCS Week in Review: December 9-14

HCS Week in Review: December 9-14


This week’s calendar at Heartland Community School looked deceptively light for those not involved in basketball, but it was anything but. As we all know, “life is full.”

Both Girls and Boys Basketball played home basketball games on Tuesday and Friday, and traveled to Hampton on Saturday. On Tuesday, both varsity teams fell to Sutton. The girls lost 57-42 and boys ended with a score of 66-54. After being highly outscored at half time (33-15), the Huskies boys came back within 12 points to end the game.
Both teams, however, added a win to their stats against both Exeter-Milligan and Hampton. The Girls won against Exeter-Milligan 76-33 and against Hampton 51-25. Scores for the Heartland boys were 76-33 against Exeter Milligan and 68-14 against Hampton.
This week, the girls JV and Varsity teams play at home against Shelby-Rising City on Tuesday evening, beginning at 6:00. On Friday, boys and girls will play Thayer Central at home with JV games beginning at 4:30 pm.
