Girls Basketball: Without Lorimer, Lakers lose at Grant

Playing without their leading scorer, Spring Lake's varsity girls basketball team was unable to keep pace in a 50-38 loss at Lakes Eight rival Grant on Friday. The Lakers were without senior Evie Lorimer, who hurt her leg against Fremont last Friday. According to coach Rich Hyde, X-rays on her leg were negative. With a college softball career on the horizon, Lorimer underwent an MRI to make sure there's no structural damage to her knee before she returns to the court.

“We talked Tuesday after Newaygo, and she just didn’t feel right,” Hyde said. “We’re just holding on right now, waiting to hear results of the MRI.
“We obviously could have used her tonight.”

The Lakers got off to a sluggish start to the game, but hung around due to a fantastic defensive performance.

Spring Lake battled back from a 18-13 deficit to tie the game at 21-all, only to see Grant break off a 13-0 run to take control of the game.

Hyde credited Molly Miedema with playing a fantastic game, including a varsity career-high seven points. She added four steals and was outstanding on defense.
