A final time-out
Last night Covenant Christian High (Grand Rapids, MI) took the District crown in the Michigan boys basketball tournament at Calvin Christian. It has been a few years since this happened – since we moved up to Class C we’ve struggled to get by the Squires of Calvin Christian. It was not a pretty game – low scoring, lots of fouls, and turnovers – but the Chargers prevailed against Wyoming Lee 46-24. CCHS played outstanding defense and took Lee out of any offensive rhythm. Lee was obviously frustrated, and it showed on the players and coaching staff. I was impressed with the composure and sportsmanship of our young men. Congratulations, Chargers and Coach Haveman!
I took a few pics with my Blackberry to share here. CCHS will next play Monday night at Ravenna HS against Ithaca. If they continue in the tournament, they may run into the undefeated Blackhawks of Fennville, the team so much in the news lately after the death of their star player in its last regular season game last week. That would be something. Go Chargers!
