Varsity Recap

     Well, a hard fought game by our Eagles, but unfortunately in the end fell in OT 45-40.  After taking a 11-6 first quarter lead, the Eagles fell behind 20-26 at the half.  Heritage faced an uphill battle while getting Ethan Shamus back, we lost Colin Burlison to injury early in the 1st quarter.  Hopefully nothing serious but please keep him in your prayers.  The Eagles fought hard the whole way coming back from an 8pt. deficit with about 3 min. remaining.  Down by 3 with 27 sec. to go Mark Gorton stepped up hitting a BIG 3pt. shot to help put the game into overtime….ClutchJ   HCA was able to pull out the win in the end.

The Coaches were happy with the effort the guys made & understand the improvements that are needed.  Mostly though we were proud the guys gave themselves an OPPORTUNITY…as in life sometimes it works out & other times we learn from it.  The Eagles have a day to rest the bodies then get ready to go again Thursday night as Michigan Lutheran comes to town.


  • Caleb Grubbs:  (2pts, 4rb., 1 asst., 2 stl., 1 blk)  First year player this guy is a worker and competitor!  Great job Caleb!
  • Ethan Shamus:  (12rb., 8pt., 4blk)  Welcome back Ethan….Looking forward to great things!
  • Levi Roman: (15pts., 7rb., 3 asst., 2 stl.)
  • Mark Gorton: (7pt., 5 asst.,5 stl.) Check out HCA Home Page…..Good action shotJ



Varsity Game vs. Calvary

What a great night for basketball, but unfortunately our Eagles fell short losing to Calvary of Fruitport 29-49 on Friday, December 7.  This game was a tale of two halfs…..Your Eagles came out with a TREMENDOUS first half leading 24-16 at the half!  Then the 2nd half hit & unfortunately we were not able to get much going.  As we told the guys we should focus on that first half, as that is a glimpse of WHAT WE CAN BE!  The team fell to 2-1 for the season & look for a quick rebound Tuesday night, Dec. 11th at Battle Creek Academy!

Many thanks to the Gorton’s for opening up their cabin for the team to enjoy some pizza together!


  • Hayden VanRavensway:  (4pts & 10 Rb)
  • Colin Burlison: (8pts, 3 stl, 2 rb, 3 Asst.)
