Newaygo High School
Grant High School
In 2nd round of districts, Newaygo lost to Grant 29-43 on Wednesday night. Newaygo had the lead heading into halftime, but was outscored 4-14 in the third quarter, and they couldn’t quite get back in the game after that.
Senior Kylee Chesley led the way for the Lions one last time as she tallied 9 points. Madison Bush had 8 points followed by Madison Cook with 6. Senior Jenna Janke pulled down 10 rebounds on the night.
“Tonight was really a microcosm of how the season went. We played pretty good for 3 quarters but just went through a dry spell in the 3rd quarter and got outscored by 10 points.” Had good open looks, just didn’t make them. All the credit to Grant. They made the plays when they needed too. They earned the win tonight.” Coach Thomasma
“Couldn’t be prouder of my whole team. They played their guts out while battling illness tonight. My seniors will be missed. Their attitude, leadership and effort was tremendous all year.” Coach Thomasma
Thank you seniors for a great season!
