GRAND HAVEN TWP. — The Grand Haven girls finished off their toughest week of the season so far. It began Tuesday against No. 3-ranked Hudsonville and on Friday the Buccaneers hosted an honorable mention top-10 team in the state in Rockford. Rockford’s tough defense and balanced scoring attack led them to a 60-25 win over Grand Haven.
“We wanted to try to play a zone because they don’t have a true inside presence, but they are very athletic and they’ve got some big guards that did a good job on Zoe (Spoelman) and Molly (Long),” Grand Haven head coach Katie Kowalczyk-Fulmer said. “I couldn’t stay in it because they hit five triples in the first quarter and they were hitting the high-low for layups so we were forced to go man.”
