Hart Eyes Continued Improvement
HART – Just three years removed from canceling its season, Hart recorded its best campaign on the gridiron since 2004 last fall.
Hart posted three wins in a season for the first time since going 4-5 in 2004 and had its best offensive output since 2013.
The Pirates did have the share of struggles in 2018, having to deal with low participation numbers and ending their JV season early. But Hart is excited to see the progress it’s made.
“We’re liking the progress so far,” Hart senior Tanner Breitwisch said. “We have mall roster numbers but everything’s coming together. We have the biggest line we’ve had in years, but coaches have a lot of positive attitude about our program right now and we’re really developing.”
“Bottom line is we’ve got to try to be in every game in the fourth quarter and have the opportunity to win,” added Hart coach Rick Witteveen. “If we do that that’s great strides from in the past.”
Hart opens its season at home against 2018 Division 8 state semifinalist Holton on Thursday, Aug. 29. Holton won last year’s meeting 26-18.
