Senior Night could not have gone better! First a big thanks to NorthPointe Christian allowing one of our Seniors Avery Kosiara to get in the game at the start and score as she had ankle surgery this season and has been unable to play. Their sportsmanship and support of this night was very special! THANK YOU!
The game itself was extremely exciting and competitive with Calvin Christian coming out on top 67 - 58 to end the regular season 16 - 6 overall and 10 - 4 in conference play. Calvin had a very hot shooting third quarter hitting six three pointers to outscore NorthPointe Christian 24 - 13 and build a nice lead. The game tightened up down the stretch before the final buzzer sounded.
Freshman Leila Nelson had a career high night with 21 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and only one turnover. Senior Macy Verbeek played a great floor game with 5 key assists and went 4 for 4 from the line to end with 7 points. Juniors Karsen Balmer had 12 second half points to go with 5 rebounds and Grace Walcott finished with 11. Freshman Addy Rhodes finished with 9 points and 7 rebounds. Seniors KiLee Bradfield and Kosiara had 2 apiece along with Junior Ella Walcott. Senior Ashley Houtsma finished with one point. All players were able to get in the game and celebrate a great victory.
