Heritage Hills 51, North Posey 30: The Patriots (12-4, 6-0) stayed undefeated in the Pocket Athletic Conference with a home win Tuesday night. Junior Rebekah Gordon paced everybody with 20 points, while sophomore Hadley Lytton connected on a trio of threes to join Gordon in double digits. The Pats scored 27 points in the second quarter, and never looked back from there.
The Pats are back in action 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Perry Central. They will seek their third straight victory. Heritage Hills' season high this year is four. The Pats get one more game at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday against Mount Vernon (Posey).
Forest Park 44, Corydon Central 42: Speaking of win streaks, the Rangers (14-6) have now won five in a row, a new season high for them. Last year's team won 11 games, and this year's team has another four games to try and improve that record even more. Senior Macie Zink led Forest Park with a team-high 18 points, while freshman Amber Tretter came in second with nine points.
The Rangers return to the floor 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Barr-Reeve. A win would give Forest Park its sixth win in a row, and that would be the most since the 2015-16 team won 10 in a row. The Rangers never won more than two consecutive games last season.
Heritage Hills 220, South Spencer 130: The Patriots got the better of their Pocket Athletic Conference rivals Tuesday in their home pool. The boys cruised to a 120-48 victory, though the girls had to edge out their triumph, 100-82.
The Pats posted winners of multiple events on both sides. Senior Gavin Fuchs dominated the 200 individual medley with a 2:11.43 time. Junior teammate Garrett Nix came in second with a 2:36.57 time. Fuchs and Nix finished first and second in the 500 freestyle as well. Fuchs' time of 5:21.14 was more than a minute better than Nix's 6:23.31. The boys also won every relay.
Freshman Bridget Flannagan won the 200 freestyle with a 2:22.85 time, and clocked in at 6:16.61 500 freestyle. Sophomore Lily Gogel edged out freshman teammate Avery Vinson, 28.28 to 28.84, in the 50 freestyle. Gogel swam a time of 1:10.98 in the 100 backstroke, besting junior teammate Rachel Martin's finish of 1:17.00. Gogel also won the 200 freestyle relay with Martin, Vinson and Flannagan with a finish of 1:56.68.
