Four guys. That’s all Pat Boyd had to start a wrestling program in Lakeview. Boyd, a Saginaw native, excelled in football. He was a two-time all-state quarterback at Saginaw Saint Peter and Paul and he’s regarded as one of Central Michigan University’s greatest quarterbacks. But if you ask Boyd, he will tell you, it’s wrestling that is “in his blood.”
James Smith knew he had to be perfect at the Tri County Invitational if he wanted to get his 100th career win there. Perfect he was.

Lakeview’s girls basketball team wanted to give new coach Chad Gould a win in his first game as the Wildcats’ coach. It instead gave the ball to Reed City too many times for Gould’s liking. The Coyotes beat Lakeview 41-29 Friday night when the Wildcats turned the ball over multiple times and shot just 6-of-17 from the free-throw line.

LAKEVIEW — Lakeview’s volleyball season had its share of highs and lows in 2016.

With the Big Ten Conference (B1G) announcing it will schedule more games on Friday nights next year, one question remains: Will this really hurt high school football?
When the clock struck zero at the Division 6 playoff game at Ravenna, many of the Lakeview football players hung around in the end zone, not wanting to leave the field just yet.

Ravenna running back racks up 323 rushing yards, 4 touchdowns against Lakeview in 42-21 Division 6 game
It only took the first snap of the game Friday for Lakeview to realize just what it was up against in its Division 6 football playoff game against Ravenna.
Bulldogs senior David Thompson may have been listed as the quarterback for Ravenna, but in the first few minutes of the game, he showed his high-level running back skills, busting out for an 80-yard and an 84-yard touchdown run that put Ravenna up 14-0, quickly.
Thompson ended up with 323 of Ravenna’s 425 rushing yards and scored four touchdowns to lead his Bulldogs to a convincing 42-21 first round win. The win earns Ravenna a second-round match-up with Kent City (8-2 overall), which upset favored Montague (7-3), 20-19.
