Regionals are approaching for the Hebron Christian School Lady Eagles and head coach William Cotton said his team has all the momentum it needs to be successful down the stretch.

The Lady Eagles came out on fire Tuesday on the road at Calhoun Academy, jumping out to a 25-0 run in the first quarter against the Cougars.

At halftime, the game was well in hand for the Eagles with a 40-12 lead.

Rachael McGrew finished the game with 15 points, with Micah Thompson contributing 12 in the winning effort. Riley Williams finished with 9 on the night for the Eagles and McKinsey Wedel came away with 8 points.

Eliana Carter and Elisha Carter also finished with 4 points each.

“We have been really this past week toning up hard and heavy to get ready to go into regionals next week,” Cotton said. “ It was 40-12 at the half and I just told my defense to back off and let them shoot from the outside.”

The 15-7 Hebron Christian School Eagles will take on Columbus Christian at home on Thursday for its last home game of the year and senior night.

BOY’S GAME

While the junior varsity boy’s squad continues to win, victories have been sparse for the Hebron Christian School boy’s varsity team.

Head Coach Gary Vaughn said the varsity team lost to Calhoun Academy 56-37, with Adrian Borst leading the way with 12 points and Dash Turman scoring 9.

“They gave us all they wanted,” Vaughn said. “Having to play ninth graders sparingly … and we came up short.”

Despite the varsity seeing a rebuilding year, the Hebron Christian School junior varsity won its 11th game of the year against Calhoun Academy 31-28, to increase its record to 11-3 and 4-1 in the district.

Vaughn said if the junior varsity beats Columbus Christian on Thursday by 3 or more points, they will win the district championship.

“If you can stay close you, have a shot at the end,” Vaughn said. “Hopefully at the end, things will fall our way.”
