Heritage Hall Chargers

BOYS

Coach: Chris Hamilton 

18-19 Record: 28-1 

The standard at Heritage Hall is a high one. Last season the Chargers, lead by Chris Hamilton, enjoyed a great season but they did not come away with the gold ball. That is in the past and the Chargers are forging ahead with new goals and some new faces. “We look forward to another year of competing at a high-level,” said coach Hamilton. “We have some young guys that are ready to step into larger roles and will have to do so for us to continue to be where we have been in the past.” Trey Alexander (6-5, Jr.) was stellar last season averaging 24 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals a game. Alexander will start at one of the guard spots making him one of the toughest matchups in the class. Phillip Smitherman (6-1, Sr.) is a tough forward who can run the floor and give you quality play on the defensive end. Smitherman averaged 6.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals a game. Jack Spanier (5-9, Sr.) will play opposite Alexander at guard. Spanier is good for 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals per contest. Melvin Swindle (6-4, Jr.) is the big man in the middle. His play in the paint can set the tone for the Chargers. Swindle averaged 5.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist as a sophomore. Other players expected to make a big impact this season include Kenneth Daughty (6-2, Sr.) and Baker Burns (6-3, Sr.). Both seniors are ready to help this team make it back to the playoffs. Also look for Matthew Williams (6-2, Sr.), Blake Garrett (6-1, Jr.), Miles Perry (5-8, Jr.), Nick Foster (6-2, So.), Eddie Cook (6-4, Sr.) and Joe Washington (6-3, Jr.). Assistant coaches include Dylan Sullivan, Corry Smith and Steven Alexander. 

GIRLS 

Coach: Leslie Hamlin 

18-19 Record: 11-14 

Head coach Leslie Hamlin is looking forward to taking the floor with a good mix of experience and young, fresh talent. “We return our sharpshooter and leading scorer from last year in Macy Moore,” said coach Hamlin. “We have a strong freshman class ready to make an impact.” Moore (5-8, Jr.) averaged 14.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 steals last year. Moore’s impact is felt every game, but look for Avery Freeman (5-11, Sr.) to light things up as well this season. Freeman averaged 8.0 points with 7.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists as a junior. With another year of varsity under her belt, Freeman could become a huge factor every night. Lainey Gray (5-9, Jr.) will join Freeman at forward. Gray averaged 3.2 points with 3.0 rebounds. Numbers that will surely climb this season. New to the coaching staff this season is Lori Carter.
