The Cedar Springs Red Hawks took on a tough competitor, the Grand Rapids Christian Eagles, last Friday, September 23, at home, and ended the night with a hard loss, 41-16.

The Red Hawks started the game off strong with runs by sophomore Ryan Ringler, junior John Todd, and seniors Austin Basso, Jacob Hooker, and Collin Alvesteffer. Midway into the first quarter, Hooker ran in for a touchdown and senior Dustin Shaw kicked the extra point, giving the Hawks a 7-0 lead. However, with three minutes left of the first quarter, Grand Rapids Christian scored a touchdown. Cedar’s defense stepped up and kept the score at 7-7.

Despite the defensive efforts by Ringler, Alvesteffer, and Todd, the Eagles scored a touchdown with a little over four minutes left of the half, and Cedar trailed 14-7. The Hawks fought back, gaining some yardage and Alvesteffer threw in a touchdown to Hooker with a minute and a half to spare. The kick was no good, making the score 14-13 but not for long. Soon after, Grand Rapids Christian came back and get a touchdown at the very end of the second quarter making the score 21-13 going into halftime.

Getting into the third quarter, the Hawks defense pulled through and stopped the Eagles from advancing. Tackles by Alvesteffer, Shaw, sophomore Lucas Pienton, junior Nate Patin, and senior Austin Ellis kept GR Christian from scoring. During the third quarter, Alvesteffer made a long run, got tackled and sprained his ankle. The injury forced him to come off the field and hand over his quarter back spot to junior Nick Campione to finish out the game. Soon after, Shaw kicked a field goal to make the score 21-16, Hawks down by five points. Tackles by Patin and Todd kept the score down going into the fourth.

However, Cedar couldn’t find an opportunity to score during the fourth quarter. Another key player, Austin Ellis, received a knee injury that prevented him from coming back into the game. The Eagles made a field goal and scored two touchdowns, one with 6 and a half minutes and one with only forty five seconds left of the game. The final score was 41-16.

After a hard loss, Cedar is ready to make adjustments and defeat Lowell this Friday, September 30.

Cedar Springs is now 2-0 in the OK-White conference, and 3-2 overall.

Remember all the times we had,

Some were great and some were sad.

But you know that in the end,

Our love was stronger than when we began.

No unforgiven sins and no regrets,

Just the times of our lives that we’ll never forget.

 

Together again, forever.

 

Miss you everyday,

Lady Red Hawks outscore Huskies


Chaya Coxon had 11 points against the Huskies.

The Lady Red Hawks Varsity Basketball team made some tough shots when it counted last Friday to earn a 44-41 win over Forest Hills Northern.
The Red Hawks rolled out the welcome mat for the Huskies then jerked it away by taking an 8-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Huskies fought back toward the end of the second quarter, making their final five shots to tie it up 17-17 at the half.
In the third quarter, Rachael Ludtke scored Cedar’s first six points to give them lead. Chaya Coxon and Molly Holtrop added 3-pointers to extend the lead to 29-24 at the end of the quarter. The Huskies continued to battle it out in the fourth, and were within a single point with only 20 seconds left on the clock when the Red Hawks won the game at the free throw line, 44-41.
Top scorers for the Red Hawks were Rachael Ludtke with 12, and Chaya Coxon with 11. Molly Holtrop added 5, Hannah Wight had 5, Tiffany Karger and Meghan Andres tipped in 4 each, and Brittany Todd scored 2.
Coxon went 6 for 6 in free throws, and and Wight went 3 for 4. Karger was 2 for 3, and Ludtke 2 for 2.
“We out-rebounded the Huskies, and were very strong at the free-throw line (76 percent), particularly late in the game (Wight, Karger),” remarked Assistant Coach Chad Wight. “We recognize that those are key ingredients to being successful and winning games.”
Wight noted that the girls seemed to gel better as a team and got the job done. “We began to realize more of our potential tonight. We had a double-double from Rachel Ludtke underneath the basket, as well as a supporting cast of starters and bench-play that filled in the rest.

Rachael Ludtke charges the basket.

“We had some big shots down the stretch, particularly some treys from both Chaya Coxon and Molly Holtrop. Hannah Wight and Rachel Ludtke grabbed some huge rebounds for us in the closing minutes that kept us on top. The Huskies hit some threes to close the gap, but we never lost our intensity,” Wight added.
The Red Hawks are now 3-1 in conference play, and 6-2 overall.
