Basketball Varsity Boys
The mighty Watervliet Panthers boys varsity team came up huge for the second time this week taking down the Saugatuck Indians for the second time this season. The Panthers have given the Indians two of their three losses on the season. Defense and rebounding were the key to the performance. Battling bloody lips, bloody noses, and bloody jerseys the boys came up big in the biggest game of the season winning 55-53. Michael Strunk and Deven Schultz, along with the rest of the team kept the high powered visiting team in check all night. Michael Strunk took a player that scored 34 the first time we played and held him to three field goals. Rebounding by RJ Rudel and everyone else also kept the Indians at bay. On offense the Panthers were lead by Brian Alden with 18 and Deven Schultz with 17. This victory gave Watervliet the division and conference titles. Awesome job boys and good luck Monday against Bridgman. The team and coaches would also like to thank all the fans that proved how important they can be to a game with their showing in the Lawrence and Saugatuck games. Thanks for the support.
