EAST KENTWOOD HIGH SCHOOL: 53
Your East Grand Rapids Lady Pioneers are District Champions! The girl's defeated East Kentwood by a score of 56-53 on Friday night to claim the Championship, one year removed from losing in the finals last year. In a game that was filled with runs by each team and carried a wide range of emotions throughout the game, the Pioneers strung together enough stops to overcome a 6 point deficit with 2:30 left in the game to take home the victory.
Leading the Pioneers was Jillian Brown (21 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists), Alli Carlson (16 points and some huge defensive plays), and Macy Brown (10 points, 5 rebounds). The whole team came up huge in this one, whether it be from their contributions on the court or their excitement/engagement from the sidelines.
Up next for this East Grand Rapids team is a matchup with Muskegon Reeths-Puffer in the Regional Semi-Finals on Tuesday (3/10) at 6pm at West Ottawa High School. Reeths-Puffer is 21-2 and is having a fantastic year, so the team could use all the fan support they can get as they look to continue their postseason run. Hope to see you there!
