Writing off Heights this season was pretty easy. The Falcons had lost the majority of their team to graduation, including All-Metro hitter Ashlea Bengtston.

It seemed a no-brainer that Heights, the reigning City League champs, would falter this season.

Heights proved early that wasn't the case when it took Bishop Carroll to five games before losing. And the Falcons proved it again Thursday night when they beat Northwest 25-12, 25-14, 23-25, 22-25 and 15-9.
