Multiple Teams · Winter Sports Awards Recap


The winter sports season officially came to an end last night as we celebrated the accomplishments of our high school teams.  The boys basketball team continued to solidify themselves as the top small school program in the state and one of the best programs regardless of size.  This year’s team finished 21-6 winning 19 of their last 20 games to help capture the school’s 5th boys basketball state title in the last 8 years.  This year’s team statistically was the best defensive team the Eagles have put on the floor in school history with their aggressive defense that stymied opponents during the state tournament.  The team, this year extended the program’s conference winning streak to 83 straight games.  The team also won their 8th straight MIAC conference title, 8th straight MHSAA district title and have now won 20 or more games for 8 straight seasons.  During the Eagles amazing 8 year run the program is 181-30 overall and 97-1 in conference play.  They have won 6 MHSAA regional titles and played 11 games at Michigan State University for the state semifinals and finals.  The Eagles will look to continue to add to the programs success next year as they return a roster that is still fairly young with the potential of bringing back 9 returners and 3 starters for the 2019-20 season.

The girls basketball team continued to move upward as they improved their conference finish for the 4th straight year and the program’s competitive growth has forced a move to the MIAC conference’s upper division for next season.  The Eagles return 10 players next year along with 4 starters.  Senior Kelly Hunter leaves as the program’s 4th all-time leading scorer and was a 2 time 1st team all MIAC conference dream team selection.

The competitive cheer team made their 1st appearance in the MHSAA district tournament since 2016.  The young team has the potential to return every athlete next year and the middle school program showed a lot of potential in numbers and talent.  The program will look to continue to show growth next year.  Below is a recap of this year’s awards.
