After taking a big step forward in Region 1-AAA basketball last week, The Heritage School’s boys basketball team took one back on Tuesday.
The Hawks shot just 33 percent from the field and were forced to rally from an early seven-point deficit after one quarter in a 64-48 loss on the road at The Weber School.
The loss put Heritage School two games back of Loganville in the region standings again following Loganville’s victory over Trinity Christian on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Lady Hawks were able to keep pace for second place in 1-AAA by putting together a dominating 52-19 win over a winless Weber girls lineup. Senior Chase Parker scored a team-high 12 points and teammate Elizabeth Massenburg added 10 points and nine rebounds in a rout.
Heritage School's girls built on a 19-9 first quarter lead by outscoring Weber 22-5 in the second period.

Hawks senior Garrett Jones continued a solid final varsity season, scoring a team-high 17 points and adding nine rebounds. But poor shooting doomed Heritage School, which was just 3 of 12 from 3-point range and connected on 13 of 21 attempts from the free-throw line. Freshman Spencer Perry added 10 points in the loss.

LOGANVILLE TEAMS TOO MUCH FOR TRINITY: Coming off its first loss of the season last Friday in Newnan to The Heritage School, Loganville’s boys basketball team may have tried to take things out on Trinity Christian in a return trip back to Coweta in a 49-39 victory.

But it took a 20-2 run in the second quarter to do it against the Lions, who led 13-12 after one quarter and “did a good job controlling the tempo,” according to head coach Anthony Lamb.

Down 41-20 after three quarters, Trinity Christian outscored Loganville 19-8 in the final eight minutes while falling to 4-16 and 0-6 in Region 1-AAA. Loganville’s win pushed a two game lead on Heritage for first place at 13-2 and 6-1 in the region.

Glen Whisby and Luke Hammock each had 11 points to lead Trinity Christian.

Loganville’s girls defeated Trinity Christian 39-19 in a tough loss for the Lady Lions, who fell to 3-4 in 1-AAA. Loganville improved to 3-5 in the region and 8-7 overall.

Kaylee Grace led Trinity with eight points while Sara Bryan added six. Alex Huber had four points for the Lady Lions.

ATLANTA INTERNATIONAL GIRLS 55, LANDMARK CHRISTIAN 37: Diamond Smith led the Lady War Eagles with 15 points in the loss. Morgan McWilliams had 12 points to go with three steals while Niambi Williams was 7 of 8 from the free-throw line.

Saturday – LANDMARK CHRISTIAN BOYS 85, WHITEWATER 84: The No. 10-ranked Eagles held off the Wildcats behind strong efforts from seniors Justin Ross and Malachi Dozier. Ross led Landmark (14-6) with 21 points and Dozier had 14.
