Freshman girls basketball picks up two tough losses against the East Kentwood Falcons and the Grandville Bulldogs


This past week, the girls freshman basketball team had a tough go against two very powerful non-conference teams. Taking on the Grandville Bulldogs and the East Kentwood Falcons, the Rangers were not able to pick up a win and lost in two very close games. ‘

On Tuesday, the Rangers took on the Grandville Bulldogs and ended up losing in the last few seconds of the game by three with a score of 36-33. Freshman Maya Holser had a stellar game against the Bulldogs and was able to score 12 points for the Rangers. Alongside her was freshman Elizabeth Latunski, who also put up 12 much-needed points for the Rangers. Freshman Frankie Sutton had nine points and made the only three-point shot for the Rangers on the day.

On Thursday, FHC headed to East Kentwood for a game that would also come to be decided in the very last minute of the game. Throughout the game, Frankie helped to lead the court from the guard position while Maya and Elizabeth dominated in the post, and these three each managed to score in the double-digits for the Rangers. Freshmen Margaret English and Gracie Vermuelen were two key defenders against the tall Falcon team and helped to secure many rebounds for the Rangers. However, the Rangers fell just short against EK, losing by six with a final score of 45-39. 

The girls freshman basketball team will play again this Thursday, December 26 at 10:30 AM. They will be playing in the annual Cornerstone Holiday Tournament and will start the tournament off by taking on the Grand Rapids Christian Eagles.
