Heritage wins "Park Rapids Winter Classic"
January 4, 2013By Gabe Anderson of Heritage Christian Academy Boys Basketball
The Eagles won the “Park Rapids Winter Classic” for the second year in a row over Christmas break. They defeated Nevis in the semifinals 60-34 despite being without senior forward Brad Basco who was out with flu like symptoms. His spot in the starting lineup was filled by senior forward Gabe Anderson.
Basco was back for the championship game against Park Rapids Area High school. The Eagles were short on rest and sleepwalked through the game but still came away with a 66-57 victory. Despite the lackadaisical effort senior guard Zach Weld was not concerned
“We played well the first game and got the easy win. The second game we played sloppy and persevered and got the win. All in all, it’s tough to play on back to back nights. In the end winning the tournament was our goal and we accomplished this goal.”
