Sorensen making farewell tour through CHVL; Heffern saying hello

Jackie Sorensen has been giving opposing coaches headaches for the last five years and she's making her farewell tour around the Central Hudson Valley League this season. Many of them, including Emma Willard's Tony Holston, are going out of their way to wish her well in the second half of the regular season.

You can read Monday's story on Sorensen by clicking here.

Heatly Schools sophomore Melissa Heffern takes a break at midcourt during Tuesday's practice. A guard, she is averaging about 18 points per game and is getting to the foul line better than every player but one in Section II.

As Sorensen is making one last swing around the CHVL, Heatly's Melissa Heffern is just saying hello. Also a varsity player since the eighth grade, Heffern is emerging as a sophomore. She leads the team in scoring and is a high-flying ballhandler, unafraid to drive to the rim or take her lumps and make the other team pay at the foul line.

Heffern certainly comes from a basketball family. Her father, Peter, is the boys varsity basketball coach at Heatly, and her brother Peter, a senior, is one of the team's shooting stars.

Her aunt, Michelle Heffern, is one of the all-time leading scorers in Heatly history and she went on to play at Florida International University and Siena College.

Most game are family affairs for Melissa. Her grandmother will videotape the games so that Melissa can review the film with her father, who is usually busy coaching the boys when she's playing. Aunt Michelle is often on hand to offer advice and Melissa also has a friendly soccer-goal and basketball-points scoring challenge with her brother.

Heatly might not have enough in the tank to catch Germantown or Waterford in the CHVL standings this season - the Hornets currently sit in third place - but with Heffern improving by the day, she may be the one to fill Sorensen's shoes in the league.

Read the full story about Heffern and how she learned to develop a mean streak on the court in Wednesday's edition of The Record.
