Comets Score 40th Goal in 5th Game of Season in 14-2 Win

Hillcrest is proving to be a high-flying offensive powerhouse again this year, scoring their 40th goal in their 5th game of the season. The 14-2 victory over Melrose was a quick strike that opened the door for HIllcrest to continue their enhancement as a team with eyes on State.

Castro Scores 5 Goals in Lady Comets 7-2 Elevation over Johnnies

Jenna Castro's return to the Comet field was met with hugs and high-fives as she joined new teammates, a former coach, and a nearly 100 year legacy of female sports smiles at Hillcrest Academy. Joining Underwood sophomore captain Kindra Peterson, the Castro-Peterson tandem is likely to be an X-factor to push the Comets into a longer post-season this year.

Newman is 4th Player in 4 Years to Enter 1000 Point Club

Many might not see beyond Newman's smiling face as he holds his 1000 point scoring sign. But what should follow in the conversation on scoring is the quiet confidence and focus that Kyler leads the team with. While scoring 1000 points is an incredible feat, the more impressive action may be what happens in the huddle at mid-court before each game.

Lady Comets Make Statement in Playoff Win

There was a unique tension in the halls Monday as the Lady Comets moved from class to class with heightened expectation. A host of girls shared that they weren't ready for the season to end. One spoke of drinking 32 ounces of water in a half hour as she thought through the game. This sense of excitement carried to the court, where the Lady Comets took care of business Monday night with a 59-41 win over Rothsay.

FreeThrows Earn Comets Big Win in Overtime

Few things are more rattling than free throws. Boisterous gyms can grow either suddenly still or insanely distracting in seconds, with all eyes on a player standing 15 feet from the backboard. Most players have an ingrained ritual that helps calm nerves as they work to earn a single point with a single shot. For Hillcrest, a series of single points lifted their score over a very talented and mentally tough Ortonville team Tuesday night. The Comets pushed the game into overtime and walked into the locker room with a 62-56 win.

Erickson's Grand Slam Puts Comets Out of Reach in 17-7 Playoff Win

Hillcrest jumped out to a 12-0 lead on their way to a 17-7 victory over West Central Area in the first round of Section 6A baseball playoffs.  Collin Erickson went 2 for 4 with 6 RBI including a grand slam to lead the Comet attack.  

Undseth and McGuire Key 10-Run Pounce on Wolverines

The Hillcrest Comets defeated the C-G-B Wolverines 12-2 Friday evening as Reggie Undseth had a perfect night:  3 for 3 with a walk, 3 runs scored and 5 RBI on two doubles. He also stole two bases in two attempts and handled 5 chances flawlessly at shortstop to back up pitcher Sean McGuire, who also had an outstanding night:  3 for 4 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI, and a complete game on the mound allowing just 3 hits while striking out 7 Wolverines. 

Lady Comets Close Regular Season with Potent Offense

Friday marked the beginning of the final days at Hillcrest for many. The all-school picnic and clean-up day was followed by an afternoon at the ball field where the Lady Comets hosted a double-header against Clinton/Graceville/Beardsley (CGB). They left the 2017 regular season in the dust, scoring 17 runs over the two games, giving up only 3 to CGB, in a dramatic finish.
