This wasn’t the season Western Michigan Christian’s first-year coach Glenn Karsten was hoping for.

The Warriors, who suffered heavy losses to graduation from last year’s squad, finished with a 4-14 record after losing to Holland Black River in the semifinal round of the Class C district tournament at Fennville on Wednesday, 58-43.

“We struggled to score at times this year, and we were way better (against Black River),” Karsten said. “We scored 27 points in the second half, so we were very efficient. But we can’t give up 58.”

The Warriors fell behind by 17 points at the half, but trimmed that deficit down to 10 before coming up short in the end.

Jessica Knoll led the way with 10 points, while Lindsey Johnson scored eight. Sarah Hughes chipped in with seven, while Alyssa Wright scored six.

Karsten said he looks forward to watching the program grow over the next several years.
