Heritage boys basketball team forfeits three wins

Heritage has had to forfeit nonleague wins over Armijo-Fairfield and Escalon and its Bay Valley Athletic League win over Liberty this month for use of an ineligible player, school athletic director and Patriots coach Pat Cruickshank said Thursday. Cruickshank said the player’s ineligibility stemmed from paperwork issues and added he hopes to have the problem resolved soon. The losses drop Heritage’s record to 7-10 overall and 0-1 in the BVAL going into Friday’s game at Antioch.

Heritage’s Kurtz chooses Stanford

Heritage High senior track star Frank Kurtz has orally committed to Stanford.
“That was my No. 1 choice by far,” said Kurtz, who also said that he also seriously considered Cal before choosing the Cardinal. He took official visits to both universities last fall.
Kurtz placed fourth in the 400 meters in the California Interscholastic Federation state track and field championships last year with a time of 47.14 seconds. He led the state in the 400 for much of the season and broke a 16-year-old record in the event at the Sacramento Meet of Champions invitational with a time of 47.03.

James Logan’s Elisaia commits to Cal Poly

James Logan High football player Fino Elisaia has made an oral commitment to Cal Poly.
“I’m majoring in sciences or engineering, and it’s probably one of the best engineering programs in the world,” Elisaia said. “Football is temporary, and I wanted to make sure that where I go, I will have a good degree after that.”
Elisaia was a first-team all-Bay Area News Group East Bay selection at defensive line in 2013. The 6-0, 302-pounder had 68 tackles, three sacks, four batted balls and one forced fumble for the Colts this past season. He also played offensive guard and fullback for James Logan last season.
Elisaia said that he took a official trip to San Luis Obispo this past weekend.
“They made me feel at home, and that’s what I wanted,” Elisaia said.
He said that he also seriously considered San Jose State, Idaho State and Sacramento State before choosing the Mustangs.
