Fruitport Calvary Christian came into Friday night with six straight district titles and most assumed they would be leaving with seven given that the 17-3 Eagles were taking on a 6-15 Muskegon Catholic Central team. The Eagles did come away with a 35-30 victory, but not without some adversity.
“They had us on the ropes,” Fruitport Calvary Christian head coach Brad Richards said. “Our girls have big goals and sometimes taking that first step is the hardest part. I have to give the kids credit because we took some body blows and we took some punches to the face and we picked ourselves up off the floor and kept fighting.”
