Over the break Boys basketball played in the Holiday Hoops at Lansing Community College. Varsity boys lost a heart breaker to Walled Lake Western 37-36 when Western leading scorer made an excellent drive to the hoop with ten seconds to go in the game. The Chiefs made one last attempt which fell short.On Friday January 8 the Chiefs took on undefeated rival Holt Rams at Holt High School. The varsity girls set the tone for the night with a huge win. The girls exploded in the third quarter taking a large lead and then played with great composure to bring home the win. The boys were out sized by the huge ram front line. But the boys dug in on defense and too a 14-13 halftime lead. The rams had a big third quarter taking a 30-22 lead into the fourth. Through the first seven minutes of the fourth quarter the Chiefs held the Rams to two points and came away win the win of the year. The boys showed great heart and grit in bringing home the win.
JV boys split their two games, defeating Western, before falling to Holt. Both games were very competitive, the Holt game was just one were shots refused to fall. Despite this frustration the JV boys fought hard to the very last second. Freshman boys were fortunate to bring home two wins. Finding themselves down 14-9 at the end of the first quarter against Holt they held the rams to 1 fourth quarter point to gain the win.
