Clark, one of the nation’s top guards in 2022, scored 33 points in Heritage Christian’s 81-69 win over Alemany in Mission Hills. Whitney, a Montana-bound guard, poured in career-high 43 points.

Dillon Depina added 19 and Kyle Frelow scored 11 in coach Paul Tait’s 100th win for Heritage Christian.

“It’s been a fun five years” Tait said via text message. “It’s only because of the great guys that we’ve had here at Heritage Christian that I got to 100. I’m very lucky to be at such an amazing school.”
