Jordan Thompson, grade 11, led the Eagles with 22 points in the regular season finale against first place Mercy San Francisco, but it wasn’t enough as Harker was defeated 52-43. However, the Eagles finished with an impressive 16-8 record and were given the No. 10 seed in the CCS Division 4 playoffs. That gives Harker’s team home court advantage as it hosts Terra Nova on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Come out to support our Eagles as they make a run at a CCS title!
Last week the boys varsity basketball team picked up a huge 71-29 win over Crystal Springs Uplands behind a 21-point, five-rebound, five-assist night from Rohan Desikan, grade 12. Later in the week, the Eagles faced off with Menlo to close out the regular season, but the Knights spoiled Senior Night by defeating Harker 55-42. Elijah Edgehill, grade 12, led the way with 13 points. The Eagles finished the season with a 12-12 record and were rewarded with the No. 11 seed in the CCS Division 4 brackets. The team travels to San Lorenzo Valley this Thursday at 7 p.m. to begin its postseason journey.
The varsity boys soccer team wrapped up its season last week as it split its two games. The Eagles fell to King’s Academy 3-1 on Senior Day, but finished the season on a winning note, taking down Priory 2-1 with goals from Kedar Gupta, grade 11, and Jared Anderson, grade 9. Harker ended with a respectable 7-9-1 record. Great job this year!
Although the Harker wrestling team was represented by only two wrestlers in the CCS tournament, it had a very strong showing. Anthony Contreras, grade 10, went 1-2 in the tournament, but with two more years of high school wrestling ahead, the sky is the limit for Contreras. Davis Howard, grade 11, represented Harker very well in the 285-pound division. Howard went 3-2, with all of his wins coming by fall, and his final loss coming at the hands of the eventual third place finisher. Congratulations on a great year to Anthony, Davis and the entire Harker wrestling team!
Dezi Johnson, grade 6, once again showed that he is one of the best young wrestlers in the nation as he finished fifth at the 2016 Liberty Nationals. The tournament was held this past weekend in St. Joseph, Mo., and showcased some of the best wrestling talent in the country. Again, congrats Dezi!
