Cedar Springs girls varsity basketball ended their season with a loss in a close game in their district, and on their home court against Forest Hills Central on Monday, Feb. 24.
The girls played hard and stayed close for most of the game. Cedar Springs went into half time only trailing by 2 points. Forest Hills Central came out strong and extended their lead in the 2nd half ending on top with a final score of 45-52.
It was a team effort with all contributing. Scoring for the Hawks were Brittany Todd, Aubree Mouthaan, Mikenzie Francis, Sam Taylor, Taylor Baker, Sayge Wight and Allison Snavley. Aly Hamiliton grabbed several rebounds and Nikki Matzke and Alysha Chaney chipped in with great defense.
Out with injuries were Mary Monterusso and Jessica Kriekaard, who gave encouragement to all. All in all it was a great effort put out by everyone and it was sad it had to end.
Overall for the season the girls were 6-14, 4-6 in the OK Bronze conference. Through all the ups and downs the girls played tough and came up just short on several games. Having 9 seniors out of 12 on the team made it very tough for it to come to an end. Playing together for 9 years and knowing that this was the final game they would ever play on their home court at Cedar Springs High School made it even harder. Congratulations on completing the season with a great game.
