HAGERSTOWN — Heritage Academy hosted a boys-girls doubleheader Monday night and swept Cumberland Valley Christian School.

Heritage blew out the Blazers 57-14 in the girls game before boys followed suit, pasting Cumberland Valley Christian 67-31.

· Rachel Clarke fell just short of a triple-double for Heritage with 14 points, nine rebounds and 11 steals. Jessica Gaylor led the Eagles with 19 points.

“We ran our offense well,” Heritage coach Ed Dorsey said. “Gaylor was on fire and Rachel’s near triple-double gave us great contributions all around.”

Callie Butts added 12 points for Heritage (12-1, 7-0) and tied  Isabel Forsman for the team lead in assists with three.

The Eagles jumped out to an early 13-4 lead after the first quarter and extended their lead to 21 by halftime.

Heritage played a pressure man defense and picked the Blazers’ pocket all night, collecting 28 steals. The Eagles held CVCS without a field goal in the second half.

“The girls did a good job with the defense. I was pleased with our man-to-man,” Dorsey said.

Kendra Myers had led CVCS (3-9) with six points.

· The Heritage boys were led by Troy Cosner with 24 points and seven rebounds in its win over the Blazers.

“We did a good job getting the ball inside,” Heritage coach Mike Kidd said. “We had a size adavantage.”

Despite scoring 42 first-half points, Kidd was wanted more out of his team.

“I was hoping we would come out a little crisper than we did,” Kidd said. “There’s still a lot of room for improvement.”

Aaron Clark had 12 points for the Eagles (9-2, 7-0) and added eight assists and six steals.

Heritage’s defense was stout throughout the game, limiting CVCS to single-digit scoring totals in each of the last three quarters. The Eagles also forced 28 turnovers.

“Too many turnovers,”CVCS coach Mike Sanders said. “Twenty-eight is way too high.”

Heritage took 20 free throws in the first half, compared the eight by the Blazers.

Tanner Propst led the Blazers (1-11) with nine points, while Josh Sanders and Kody Kine each scored six.
