What Happened: The Grand Haven varsity girls basketball team hosted Caledonia Friday night and came out victorious in a 35-24 win. Stellar defense propelled the Buccaneers to this win as points were at a premium for the Fighting Scots. Junior Alli Keyser led the team with 18 points followed by senior Sophie Mariani’s all-around effort of nine points, three blocks, four rebounds and three steals. After giving up 55 points in loss to Rockford last week Friday, this was another statement win for Grand Haven to prove their defense. They allowed only 28 points to Grandville on Tuesday as well.

They Said It: “It was one of our key goals to stop their best post player from getting offensive boards and we did that,” junior Dahlia Jerosvek said. “This was one of our best games. We played hard from start to finish and we never let up on the pressure.”

What’s Next: The Lady Bucs return to action this Tuesday at home, facing off a against a solid Muskegon squad at 7:00 p.m.
