  • HS BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Hawks come up short against GISA rival Holy Spirit; Trinity boys earn victory


    Heritage School certainly did enough to get Holy Spirit’s attention in the first meeting between the GISA’s top-two basketball programs since last year’s Class AAA title game.
    The Hawks took a lead into halftime and got a boost from the return of senior Dylan McLean, who sat out Friday’s big win over Calvary Christian.
    But the Cougars and standout Anthony “Ant Man” Edwards held their ground at home to a 60-53 victory.
    Heritage School will have to wait until later this month to get a chance to even the regular season series after facing Holy Spirit for the 11th time in the past three years. The Hawks dropped their seventh straight meeting since a win in January 2017.
    Both teams have spent most of the 2018-19 season playing a tough non-league schedule. Holy Spirit improved to 6-8 overall and took over sole possession of first in Region 1-AAA at 3-0.
    The Hawks fell to 9-8 overall and 3-1 in region play.
    Senior Lance Terry had six points of his team-high 20 points in the opening quarter and McLean had two early baskets to help keep Heritage within range in a 12-10 deficit heading into the second period.
    Terry’s jumper with just over six minutes left in the second quarter gave the Hawks a 21-20 lead en route to 12 points by the break.
    In the third, however, Holy Spirit regained a 29-23 advantage with a thundering dunk by Edwards through the lane and the Hawks turned the ball over on their ensuing possession on what looked to be a ball tipped by Holy Spirit.
    Held to four points through the first half, Edwards responded with 11 points in the third including four 3-pointers en route to a game-high 24 in the victory.
    Just after connecting from the left side of the arc for a 39-25 advantage, Edwards closed the period by firing just a step outside the circle at center court for a buzzer-beater to keep the Holy Spirit lead at 15.
    Heritage whittled its deficit back to 10 on a feed from Terry to Connor Thompson under the basket with 5:30 to play.
    The teams meet again on Friday, Jan. 25 at The Heritage Center before likely meeting again to determine the Region 1-AAA title before heading back into the GISA state tournament.
     
    In other local action:
    BOYS
    Trinity Christian 70, Fulton Leadership 50: Outside region play on the road against a 6-A opponent, Trinity held its ground while led by Brady
    Burnett’s 21 points in another balanced effort for the Lions.
    With the win, Trinity, which has faced a tough non-region schedule, inched closer to .500 at 8-9 overall.
    Along with Burnett, fellow junior Shamari Reed added 16 points to go with 10 from Giancarlo Bastianoni Sanchez.
    The Lions also picked up seven from Maclean Hoekwater and six from Tyler Whitfield. Senior Jacob Blair chipped in with four points in the victory.
     
    Westlake 71, Newnan 51: On the road, Newnan stayed within a 16-10 deficit after one quarter before the Lions exploded for 21 points in the second to pull away.
    Westlake improved to 10-7 and won its first Region 2-7A game of the year to move to 1-2. Newnan dropped to 0-4 in region play and 6-12 overall heading into Friday’s home game against Campbell (10-6, 0-4).
     
    New Manchester 60, Northgate 38: The Vikings continue to search for their first win of 2019 after being denied by the Jaguars.
    Northgate fell to 6-11 and 0-8 in Region 5-6A play while looking to snap a six-game slide on Friday at Creekside.
     
    GIRLS
    Holy Spirit 64, Heritage School 28: On the road, the Lady Hawks dropped their first Region 1-AAA game while facing the defending GISA Class AAA state champions.
    The two programs have combined to win the last two GISA state titles.
    Heritage had its record drop to 11-2 overall and 4-1 in region play. Holy Spirit improved to 9-3.
     
    Westlake 82, Newnan 37: The No. 1 state-ranked Lady Lions padded an 18-7 lead after one quarter by exploding for 28 points in the second at home.
    Westlake stayed unbeaten at 15-0 overall and 3-0 in Region 2-7A play.
    Newnan was led by 12-point performances from sophomore K.K. Madrey and senior Hailey Bloom with the duo combining on five of the Lady Cougars’ six three-pointers.
    Madrey added a team-high five rebounds and three steals in the loss for the Lady Cougars (6-11, 1-3).
    Westlake junior Carlyse Hooks was 9 of 11 shooting from the field en route to a game-high 22 points while sophomore teammate Raven Johnson added 18 in the victory.
    Junior Lydia Freeman paced the Lady Lions with 14 points while Newnan freshman Ashira Brown finished with six.
     
    New Manchester 66, Northgate 18: On the road, the Lady Vikings struggled offensively in a Region 5-6A matchup against a 15-2 New Manchester team that averages over eight steals per game.
    New Manchester, which advanced to the Sweet 16 in last year’s Class 6A state tournament, remained one game behind Douglas County’s girls in the Region 5 standings at 9-1.
    Northgate fell to 4-10 overall and 1-7 in region play.

    HS BASKETBALL: Thompson's 42-point outing caps off cozy sweep by Heritage School over Calvary

    Lady Hawks players Sister Rhodes, left, Emily Walker and Rachel Henson surround Calvary's Sara Beth Parker in the second half during a 58-2 victory in a non-region game at home. Below, Connor Thompson (4) completes a steal with a layup during a career-high 42-point performance in the Hawks' 84-36 victory. Lance Terry (30, below) added 22 points including four dunks while Kasen Jennings (1) had 12.
     
     
    Heritage School teams reaped some of the rewards of tackling tough opponents over the holiday break on Friday with a pair of lopsided victories over Calvary Christian at home.
     
     
    COW_3122
    But junior Connor Thompson was truly zoned in for the Hawks in their final tune-up prior to Tuesday’s first showdown of the 2018-19 season with nemesis Holy Spirit in Atlanta.
     
    Thompson, who has been referred to as “the glue” by head coach Joey Jerome in Heritage’s hopes of supplanting Holy Spirit from atop the basketball pedestal in GISA Class AAA, stuck a career-high 42 points on the GICAA opponent from Columbus, including eight of the Hawks’ 13 three-pointers in an 84-36 victory.
     
    Returning starters Lance Terry, Kasen Jennings and Ebenezer Dowuona equally continued to be front and center in a blowout win that had Heritage roaring out to a 29-point opening quarter where all four Hawks shared the wealth.
     
    Jennings, Terry and Thompson combined for six treys in the first, the majority coming from opposite corners on quick releases.
     
    Yet as the game progressed, Thompson seemed unstoppable while going 6-for-10 from the field in the third as Hawks teammates began to keep an even more watchful eye out for the 6-foot-2 swingman.
     
    The effort came with recent Heritage graduate and All-County standout Jake Canter watching from the stands as his eventual successor had his best game yet trying to fill a tough vacancy in the lineup.

    “That was his best game yet,” Jerome said of Thompson, who bettered a previous career-best of 27 after arriving from Jackson High this season.
     
    Along with a resounding 58-2 victory by Heritage School’s girls over Calvary after holding its opponent scoreless in the second half, the doubleheader provided a chance for both home teams to take momentum into Tuesday’s Region 1-AAA doubleheader against defending GISA state champions.
     
    While the Lady Hawks battled undefeated Central Christian over the break, Heritage’s boys were coming off a gauntlet in tournament play that included games against Pebblebrook, Meadowcreek and Lithonia in addition to facing four out-of-state programs.
     
    The Hawks defeated Lithonia 68-64 on Dec. 27 prior to single-digit losses to Class 7A state-ranked Meadowcreek (51-45) and West Virginia opponent John Marshall (62-59) in Wheeler’s Tournament of Champions event.
     
    “They’ve been level-headed. They’ve had highs. They’ve had some lows. The schedule we’ve played is tough, especially where we are,” Jerome said. “It helps us playing in different crowds, different environments against different kids.”
     
     
    COW_2993
    Heritage took full advantage of a chance to stretch its legs early against Calvary. Terry scored 12 of his 22 points in the first quarter including two of his four dunks.
     
    Jennings added two field goals and Duwuona equally responded with a three-point play among two of Heritage’s three college prospects from the Class of 2020 with Thompson.
     
    Leading comfortably 51-27 at halftime, the Hawks put the game away in the third with a 22-point quarter that began with four consecutive baskets off assists between Jennings, Terry and Grant Evans.
     
    “That’s what we practice. Move that basketball, don’t let it stick,” Jerome said. “If somebody’s open, get them the ball. And tonight, it was Connor’s night.”
     
    With 20 points at the break following two more three-pointers and a perfect 5-for-5 effort at the line in the second quarter, Thompson kept finding ways to add to his total.
     
    After a pair of field goals to begin the third, he completed a drive to the basket to match a previous career-high of 27 before eclipsing it with a layup off a steal.
     
    Thompson had 35 points heading into the final period before adding three more field goals in the fourth, the last of which fittingly kissed multiple parts of the rim before going through.
     
    Jennings finished with 12 points and Duwuona added eight for the Hawks, who improved to 9-6 overall.
     
    Holy Spirit has taken a similar strategy of loading up its non-region schedule, playing Class 7A opponents McEachern, Wheeler, Westlake and Meadowcreek in addition to out of state foes.
     
    The two-time defending GISA champions return junior Anthony Edwards among a roster that includes seven seniors.
     
    Heritage rested seniors Dylan McLean and Patrick Griffies on Friday while also without senior Gridley Pendergrast, rotating in Evans, Henry Arnall and Reece Overhault against Calvary among seven players that saw playing time.
     
    “I feel like we’re playing really good. We need to get healthy. That’s the biggest thing right now,” Jerome said.

    Frances Powell puts up a shot in the second half against Calvary Christian.
     
    In the girls game, Heritage held Calvary to a single field goal in the first quarter in a lopsided 58-2 effort where the Lady Hawks seemed to scoop up every rebound on both sides of the floor.
     
    Olivia Ayers and Tricia Underwood led a 33-2 run in the opening quarter with six points apiece and teammates Aaliyah Ferrell and Carissa Vazquez each chimed in with two field goals in the period including a three-pointer.
     
    Head coach D.J. Clay rotated 15 players in and out of the lineup with success. Danielle Sudick added six points between the second and third quarters and Vazquez closed out a 11-point performance with five points in the third.
     
    The Lady Hawks (8-1) finished with 22 field goals in the win and was 9 of 16 from the free-throw line.
     
    Ayers and Ferrell each finished with seven points while Sudick, Underwood and Emily Walker added six apiece.
     
    Heritage also received scoring efforts from Sister Rhodes (4), Lilly Arnall (2), Zada Smith (2), Frances Powell (2), Emily Cushing (2) and Michaela Mikko (1).

    Senior Carissa Vazquez went to halftime with a team-high seven points among seven scorers for the Lady Hawks.
