Ravens Earn Season Sweep Over the Wolves on Senior Night
Hillcrest celebrated Senior Night with a convincing 57-30 win over Winfield-Mt. Union Tuesday to close out the conference season, giving the Ravens the season sweep over the Wolves and sole possession of third place in the SEISC North behind Pekin and Wapello. Hillcrest and W-MU entered the game vying for third, as both teams had five losses in conference play. The win moves Hillcrest to 10-5 in conference play, 12-6 overall.
Hillcrest next plays Burlington Notre Dame Friday at home in the SEISC Shootout. The game matches the number three teams from the North and South divisions. It is varsity only and tip-off will be at 6 p.m.
2020-21 saw three seniors on Pep Band, all of whom were on for just one year.
Meredith Blossom was a former basketball player and didn’t know how to play an instrument. She learned to play bass guitar, picking it up quite quickly, and impressed everyone with her skill playing the bass. Meredith plans on being an English major at a college yet to be determined.
This was Madeline Fox‘s first and only year as a student at Hillcrest. Her coming on board to play keyboard helped us shift some things around to have a fuller sound as a band. Her talent was very apparent from the beginning and she has certainly come through in a big way for the band. After graduation, Madeline plans to attend Faith Baptist College in Ankeny and major in missionary nursing.
Sarah Miller also joined Pep Band this year having played basketball the last 3 years. Sarah played guitar, both lead and rhythm and did a great job with filling out our sound. She is a great team player with a cooperative spirit and willingness to try new things. After graduating, Sarah plans to attend Goshen College in Indiana and major in music education.
