“She was the best player on the floor on any team I’ve seen this entire year. She could play the one spot or fifth spot and dominate,” said first-year Belding girls basketball coach Connor Hoke about his senior scoring leader. “She’s one of the most versatile players I’ve seen all year.”

“It was the fifth game of the season, against a good Lansing Catholic team. We went down 15-2 quickly, and I called a timeout,” said the first-year Eagles coach. “I talked to the girls and I told them, we can go in two directions — accept being average or we can continue to be better every day.”

This year’s team has a new coach and will have a new approach but the goal is still to be just as successful as last year’s team.
