ZEELAND EAST HIGH SCHOOL: 36
The JV Dux avenged an early-season loss on Thursday night, defeating a tough Zeeland East Chix team by a score of 52-36. Guards Drew Weenum ('22) and Kylan Arnold ('22) sparked strong starts to both halves, with Weenum scoring 9 of his 16 points in the first quarter, and Arnold scoring 12 of his 17 points in the third quarter.
"Those two had an attack mindset all night, so it was awesome to see them rewarded for their aggression," Coach Ray said. "Drew and Kylan set the tone, and the rest of the squad followed closely behind."
Bergen Loeprich ('22) and Brendan Gabrion ('22) had six points apiece. Overall, countless Dux contributed to the win in a multitude of ways.
"To be a great team, you need guys who are willing to do the little things. Tonight, I would say that Mitch Middleton ('22), Keigan Wiersma ('22), and Josh Kroll ('22) contributed in ways that won't show up in the box score," Coach Ray said. "Mitch and Keigan battled in the post against East's talented big man and they did a great job on the boards. Josh, who had been battling injuries earlier in the year, brought a ton of defensive intensity. I am proud of all of them."
