Hamilton Heights Christian Academy is reigning National Associate of Christian Athletes (NACA) Champions and Stratford High advanced to the 2018 Class AA semifinals. Both dominated dozens of teams a year ago. Saturday they met in a preseason scrimmage.
Two details need be mentioned upfront. HHCA features, at a minimum, seven high major basketball prospects and none of them played in this game. Stratford features two D1 prospects and one is ineligible (grades) until at least early December. Mike Wallace was an enormous reason Stratford advanced as far as they did last season an figures to be a featured player in the SHS Spartan system this season…if he becomes eligible.
His absence was unexpected and remains a major disappointment. Hopefully he and his supporters can get his academics to improve.
Five themes emerged in the scrimmage between HHCA’s B-team and Stratford minus Wallace.
