Congratulations go out to the Hayes 8th grade boys’ basketball team as they hosted arch rival Holt in the first match up of the 2016 season.
The B team won 60-51 in the opener, while the A team won a nail biter 53-48. Ja’Den Morrell lead the transition game for the B team while Logan Todd sealed the A victory with a steal in the closing seconds after Noah Warren connected on two key free throws on Grand Ledges last two possessions.
“I’m proud of how hard the guys’ fought tonight. It’s always nice to start on a good note, especially at home,” stated Coach Helmic after the game.
The 8th graders are back in action Wednesday, November 9th at Ionia.
