Cedar Springs High School seniors Molly Holtrop (left) and Hannah Wight (right) signed with Grace Bible College last month to play basketball.

Long time teammates Hannah Wight and Molly Holtrop have been given an opportunity few players ever experience. After nine years of soccer and eight years of basketball together, hundreds of games and countless wins, these two perennial standouts will continue playing basketball together locally at Grace Bible College in Grand Rapids.

Wight and Holtrop both signed on April 14 to play at Grace under Head Coach Rich Renzema, who hopes to bring the Lady Tigers to the same national prominence as the Grace men’s team, with four NCCAA national championships. The last Cedar Springs Red Hawk to make it big at Grace was Jimmy Booth in 2006, Grace’s first national championship year.

Hannah and Molly have been three-year Varsity starters for the Lady Red Hawks basketball program under two different coaches. As current co-captains of their Varsity soccer team, they will complete three years of Varsity play, which includes an overtime District win against East Grand Rapids in their sophomore year. They round out their athletic accomplishments at Cedar Springs having also played volleyball, having won middle school conference titles in track, taken two first place Gus Macker trophies, and two first place titles at the national AYBT tournament (basketball) in Fort Wayne. They also participated in two annual Powder-Puff football games together during Red Flannel Weekend.  While they were busy doing all of that, they were also Honor Roll students every year.

Congratulations Hannah and Molly, and good luck!
