Heritage honoring 1st senior hoopsters

Heritage is planning to honor the senior members of its first boys basketball team in 1969 on Jan. 29 before the varsity boys game against Adams Central at 7:30 p.m.

Senior members of that first team were Phil Meyer, Gary Trump, Dave Harris, Roger Melcher, Tom Stephenson, Ron Bultemeier, Stan Oehler, Randy Grabner, Kevin Sipe and Doug Holle.

The cheerleaders were Diane Saalfrank Harris, Deb Schroeder Grodrian and Sherry Cagnet Grogg.

The coach was Gene Hany.

A meet-and-greet table will be set up in the main lobby of the school beginning at 6 p.m., along with a display of memorabilia. The players, cheerleaders and coach will be introduced before the beginning of the varsity game.
