In one of the last games for the Heritage High School’ girls soccer team, Heritage lead a tough and well-coordinated attack against Mountain View High School. Heritage took an early 1-0 lead in the first half, with a booming strike from 10 yards out, and never looked back. Heritage’s goalkeeper, Lisa Herrera, preserved Heritage’s lead throughout the game with a few close calls and amazing saves. Mountain View put up a valiant fight but could not overcome the strong and well-coordinated Lady T-Wolves. Heritage went on to win 1-0 in an epic game with many amazing plays throughout.
HHS’s Martin Kocurek started off the scoring at the 7 minute mark with a beautiful volley, but Evergreen were fearless and 4 minutes later got a shot inside the box and managed to even out the score at 1- nil. The T-Wolves did not hold back and came back with Martin Kocurek scoring another beautiful Goal inside the 18 yard box, getting them 2-1 lead. Just as we were meeting the half way mark, Evergreen gave it it’s all and managed to take a shot at the 25 and as Sam Basara(goaly) showed no fear to catch the on coming soccer ball, the rain seemed to be on Evergreens side and slipped right through the T-Wolves goal keeper’s fingers for a goal giving them the tie at 2-2.
It was a cool yet sunny day, a contrast to what last week’s game was. With Union entering the field, it was about to be a sharp contrast e in the score as well. With our adrenaline rush and pride flowing through our blood from beating Enumclaw just the other week, HHS Football was pumped up and confident.
With the Heritage wolf pack surrounding the stands and a crisp cool air giving a warning of the rain to come, Heritage Football walked out onto the field. Fans were packed into one undulating mass of purple, and the game was on. Right after kick-off Heritage recovered a fumble marking the beginning of a relentless onslaught brought on by the wolves.
“Play one” was the defining play according to Wyatt Luedecker, and he repeatedly stated how the first play that resulted in a 23 yard touchdown pass to Jeremiah Kelly is what created the momentum that ended in a 40 to 0 Heritage win. “We hit them hard, we scored touchdowns, we didn’t stop, and we didn’t take our foot off the pedal”.

Playing on Friday nights is the absolute best thing we ever do. The atmosphere is unreal. It’s a war we prepare a whole week for. We won the battle. The win, our first win, was the beginning of our new reign. And because it’s my senior year, getting that win meant a lot.
When Jay Allen took that hand off in the end zone, late in the fourth quarter, the realization sunk in, the game was ours. Read more →
This baseball season, Heritage players have hit a grand slam in performance. Ranked 105th in high school baseball in Washington, Heritage T-Wolves headed to Tacoma Saturday for state after a gruesome game against Skyview for the district title. They got 2nd in districts, and were awarded 6th in state.
Senior Dakota Clevidence was named player of the year for a .523 batting average in which he hit 5 homeruns—three in the same game. He was also chosen for 1st team all-league first baseman along with others on the team.
“I feel accomplished and proud that my hard work paid off,” Dakota commented.
Senior Alex Smith was also chosen for 1st team all-league pitcher for his outstanding job as pitcher in which he “puts the light out” as said by another team mate. Senior Timmy Hergert was also chosen as 1st team short baseman.
“We’re like family. We’re closer than any other team I’ve been on,” Dakota comments. “The coaches trust in us to play, they let us play,” and trust that they will do the right thing. The coaches are not the only people to keep the players pumped and in control but also the ones on the bench. The players who stay in it even if they don’t play, who talk when others don’t. The benchwarmers brought the success too.
