The scores and results from Monday's prep action:


Tennis: East Kentwood was the opponent on Monday as the Bucs suffered a narrow defeat. There were wins across three of the singles positions for Grand Haven, with Noah Bachmann, Weston Taylor and Ian Rant all victorious. 

The match of the day came at 3-doubles, where Grand Haven's Carter Prieditis and Brayden Rowley won a three-set match that took two hours to finish. However, losses elsewhere in the doubles flights doomed the Bucs. 

Water Polo: For the second time in the past two days, the Grand Haven Water Polo team was taking on rival East Grand Rapids. This is the third matchup between the two teams, and with their 11-7 win the Buccaneers move to 2-1 versus the Pioneers this season. In this game, the Grand Haven offense got off to a hot start and built a lead that East Grand Rapids was unable to come back from. 

The Bucs saw scoring contributions from several players as Michael and Thomas MacDonald, Nick Wilson, Alec Korecki and Jonas Kovach all found the back of the net. Garrett Barry and Ethan Boos split time goal keeping for Grand Haven and managed to slow down the East Grand Rapids offense until late in the fourth quarter. 

The Buccaneers are back in the pool Wednesday taking on East Kentwood. 


Tennis: The Lakers faced a tough opponent in NorthPointe Christian on Monday afternoon. In a 7-1 loss, Callum Saxe at 2-singles was the lone victor for Spring Lake. The position next-closest to a victory was the 4-doubles team of Sean Bennink and Jackson Der Vartanian, losing 7-6, 7-5. 

The Lakers will next host Kelloggsville on Wednesday.


Tennis: The Trojans took on Fremont Monday and dropped six matches and won two. Number one singles player Jordan Hennings lost his sets 6-0, 6-2. Alexander Leonard took home a win in the number two single spot 6-1, 6-2. Cole Foy lost a three set match 6-1, 2-6, 11-9. Caleb Foy lost both sets 6-1. 

In doubles, Brady Weck and Zander Beatty lost 7-6(3), 6-1. Davis Gilbert and Hayden Winskas won their match 6-0, 7-6(8). Richard Riekse and Dakota Adkins lost both sets 6-1. Harkaran Cheema and Mason Murphy lost their number four doubles matchup 6-4, 6-2. 

The Trojans play next Wednesday at home against Kenowa Hills. 


Soccer: Manistee visited WMC on Monday night, and the Warriors picked up right where they had left off over the weekend in wins for both the varsity and junior varsity teams. 

Two goals apiece for Brandon Fles and Charlie Alfree were the highlights of an 8-1 Warrior win. Michael Masumpa, Logan Pollack, Michael Tencate and Isaiah Barco-Morales all found the net for WMC to round out the scoring. They'll travel to Orchard View tomorrow night.

The junior varsity team won 3-0 thanks to goals from Gavin Riksen, Matt Minasian and Samuel VanOrman.
