The varsity boys’ and girls’ basketball teams competed Friday, Jan. 27, at home against Michigan Lutheran Seminary, and teams ultimately fell to the Cardinals. The teams played hard and kept the games much closer than the first competition against MLS. 

The girls played first and finished the game losing by a final score of 40-49. The boys followed the game and fell short with a final score of 35-53. 

Senior Laney Pestrue said, “ It was a frustrating game because we could have won if we made fewer mistakes. However, I could definitely tell that our team is getting better considering we were blown out by MLS last time.” 

The girls kept the game close the whole time, with many players contributing to their final score. The leading scorer on the night was Josie Schrot with 18 points. 

Junior Natalee Hoyt said, “I think that the game went well even though we lost. We improved a lot from the first time we played them which was good. MLS was a really good team so to only lose by nine points was good.” 

The boys’ team played hard the whole game but unfortunately, fell to the Cardinals by a final score of 35-53. 

Junior Josh Dew said, “As a team, we just had a lack of communication and left the top of the key open and then they found open guys to hit their shots. We also had an off-shooting night from mostly everyone giving them that lead in the first half.”  

The Varsity boys’ team will be competing again Tuesday, Jan. 31, in the Shark Tank against Millington. The varsity girls’ team will play Jan. 31, as well at Millington High School.
