Veritas splits at Heritage

January 24, 2010


— The Veritas Christian boys basketball team defeated Heritage Christian, 47-36, on Saturday on the road.

After an 0-3 start to the season, the Eagles have won their last four games and six of their last eight.

“The last few weeks, they’ve really gotten better in the offense,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said. “It took a few weeks to get used to it, but the chemistry is really coming together, which is important in team sports. It’s been a nice little roll.”

Elijah Penny led a balanced Veritas scoring attack with 15 points. Ethan Scott had 10, and Ethan Kay contributed nine.

Veritas will travel to Tri-City Christian (Mo.) on Tuesday.

Heritage 52, Veritas girls 47

Kayli Farley had her second consecutive solid outing with 18 points, but the Veritas Christian girls fell to Heritage Christian.

Farley has poured in 41 points in the Eagles’ last two games.

“She led us in scoring last year in 10 of our last 12 games, and she’s starting to get her confidence back,” Veritas coach Kevin Shelton said of Farley. “That will help us down the road.”
