GAYLORD It was another


productive week for the
Gaylord girls basketball team
as the Blue Devils defeated
Big North rivals Traverse City
Central by a 50-32 count on
Tuesday, Feb. 4, and Alpena
by a 46-35 margin on Friday,
Feb. 7, in the annual Pink
Out fundraiser to fight can-
cer.
Going into play this week,
the Blue Devils were 11-3
overall and 8-0 in the Big
North. Its the first time the
Gaylord girls have ever been
unbeaten in the league at this
point in the season. They are
gunning for their first-ever
Big North title.
Gaylord has a busy stretch
of schedule with the district
tournament fast approach-
ing. The Blue Devils played
non-league foe Cheboygan
on Tuesday, Feb. 11, and
league foe Traverse City
Central on Wednesday, Feb.
12, after this issue went to
press. This Friday, Feb.14,
they travel to the court of
Traverse City West.
The following week they
are home against Clare on
Tuesday, Feb. 18, play at
Petoskey on Wednesday, Feb.
19, and then have a big one at
Cadillac on Thursday, Feb.
20.
Gaylord coach Frank
Hamilla was pleased with the
play of his girls and also with
the turnout for the annual
Pink Out fundraiser.
First of all, it was a suc-
cessful night for our Pink Out
game to fight cancer, he
said. We raised money for
the Courtright family and the
American Cancer Society. I
just want to thank everybody
who took part this event.
As for the game, the Blue
Devils used the formula that
worked so well for them this
season: a suffocating,
swarming defense and a
patient offense. Gaylord led
13-6, 24-18 and 35-23 at the
quarter breaks.
We started out with a
good first quarter but we
started picking up fouls early
and that took us out of the
press, Hamilla reported.
We played a pretty even sec-
ond quarter and went into
the lockerroom with a six-
point lead. We talked about
setting the tone in the third
quarter and we did just that,
taking a 12-point lead into
the fourth quarter.
We took care of the ball in
the fourth quarter and made
our free throws. We were 7-
for-8 in the final quarter.
Lauren Hintz was 4-for-4 in
the fourth quarter. Between
foul trouble and injuries we
were able to pick it up and
continue to play team ball.
Super sophomore Brandi
Wagner went down with a
knee injury during the game
and her status for future
games was still uncertain at
the time of this writing.
Hard-nosed Lindsey
Zaremba hurt her elbow dur-
ing the game and was forced
to the bench but Hamilla said
it appears she will be OK.
Zaremba was zoned in
from the floor before her
departure, ringing up a team-
high 11 points, and she was a
beast inside, grabbing a
team-high seven rebounds.
Senior guard Maddie
Hamilla, fresh off signing her
letter-of-intent to play soccer
next year for Northern
Michigan University, hit for
nine points and Lauren Hintz
hit for eight with six boards.
Maddie dished off four
assists. Wagner, Sydney
Gooding and Sydney
Kassuba each grabbed four
rebounds and Wagner also
issued three assists.
ON TUESDAY, Feb. 4, in the
50-32 win over visiting T.C.
Central, it was Hamilla ham-
mering home 19 points to
lead the way offensively and
she also recorded four
rebounds and three steals to
help the cause.
Zaremba added her usual
zip to the attack as well, pen-
etrating through the paint to
put nine on the board, and
Wagner continued her high
level of play, waxing the
twine for eight. Wagner and
Zaremba pulled down six
boards each and Wagner also
generated three steals and
led the team in assists.
Zaremba, Sydney Kassuba
and Lauren Hintz were big
into piracy as well for the
swarming Blue Devil
defense, recording three
steals apiece while Gaylord
blanketed the floor with a
full-court press.
Gaylord (11-3, 8-0) played
Cheboygan and T.C. Central
on Tuesday and Wednesday
of this week. This Friday, Feb.
14, the Blue Devils play at
T.C. West.

Victory over Alpena in Pink Out
game pushes Blue Devils to 8-0 in
Big North and 11-3 overall
MANCELONA It wasnt a
good game for the
Mancelona girls varsity bas-
ketball team on Friday, Feb.
7.
The Lady Ironmen lost the
Ski Valley Conference
matchup, 54-17, as outstand-
ing freshman center Eileene
Naniseni was still feeling the
effects of an injury and didnt
score in the defeat.
Central Lake took full
advantage, outscoring the
host Mancelona team, 8-4, in
the opening stanza and then
building a 21-7 advantage at
halftime.
The Lady Ironmen (5-8, 3-
7 conference) managed just 7
points in the third quarter
and only 3 in the final period.
Ashley Joseph led
Mancelona with 6 points, 2
rebounds and 1 steal. Emily
Nixon added 5 points, 9
rebounds, 2 steals and 2
blocked shots in the loss.
While she didnt score,

team with 5 rebounds, 1 steal
and 1 blocked shot.
Other contributors for the
Lady Ironmen included: Tyra

and 1 assist; Jill Smigelski
with 1 point, 1 rebound, 1
steal and 1 assist; Bekky Piatt
with 1 point and 1 steal; Tori
Reicheldefer with 5 rebounds
and 5 steals; and Sara Hittle
with 3 rebounds.
Onaway 51
Mancelona 32
The Lady Ironmen had a
better second half against
conference rival Onaway on
Wednesday, Feb. 5, but it
wasnt enough as Mancelona
was on the short end of a 51-
32 final score.
Mancelona got the better
of Onaway, 14-13, in the third
quarter and was just two
points short of the visiting
Cardinals, 9-7, in the fourth.
But, that wasnt good
enough, as Onaway had built
a 29-11 advantage at half-
time.
The Lady Ironmen, at
times, hurt themselves, com-
mitting 30 turnovers in the
loss and hitting just 7-of-20
free throws.

scored 7 points to lead
Mancelona. Hittle also
grabbed 8 rebounds, 6 steals
and handed out 1 assist.
Smigelski hauled in 5
rebounds.

the boards with a team-high
13 rebounds, while also chip-
ping in 4 points, 1 steal and 2
blocked shots.
Also contributing for

with 6 points, 5 rebounds, 1
steal and 1 blocked shot;

rebounds, 1 steal and 2
assists; Reicheldefer with 4

GAYLORD The
Johannesburg-Lewiston boys
of coach Troy Huff produced
a pair of impressive Ski Valley
road victories last week,
earning a 73-36 decision over
scrappy St. Mary on the court
of the Snowbirds on
Wednesday, Feb. 5, and then
outscoring host Forest Area
in Fife Lake by a 76-59 mar-
gin.
With the two victories, the
surging young Cardinals of
coach Huff pushed their
record to 7-6 overall and 6-5
in the rugged Ski Valley. The
St. Mary boys of coach Ken
Blust slipped to 2-7 and 1-6
but bounced back to earn a
huge upset win at home
against a very good Onaway
team (see Boys Hoops report
in this issue).
The visiting Cardinals
gradually pulled away from
the game-but-shorthanded
Snowbirds on Wednesday. J-L
led 13-6, 37-15 and 50-24 at
the quarter breaks.
Sophomore Lights Out
Logan Huff led the way offen-
sively for the victors, launch-
ing 14 through the iron.
J-Ls powerful two-pronged
inside presence featuring
Nate Fox and Brandon Huff
cast another long shadow on
the floor as well, both gener-
ating a double-double. The
pair canned 11 points each
while the feisty Fox fought
down 12 boards and Huff
hauled in 10.
Freshman Spencer White,
another promising J-L
underclassmen, filled in for
injured starter Tyler
Tarbutton and turned in an
efficient performance, mak-
ing the twine jump for a
team-high 12 points to join
Fox and Huff in double digits.
Joel Kussrow, recently
brought up from the JV, con-
nected for six points and Kye
Sundberg brought his usual
energy off the bench, hitting
for five.
Rangy senior Charles
Strehl, who is in the midst of
a monster season, rang up 19
points to pace the Snowbirds.
Senior guard Nick
Harrington, finally back on
the floor, hit for seven and
Jack Lochinski chipped in six.
Rugged Cole Loffer brought
his blue collar and hard hat
and went to war with Fox and
Huff in the paint.
Handshakes were exchanged
after the game and bruises
were exchanged during the
game.
ON FRIDAY, Feb. 7, the
Cardinals traveled to the
court of Forest Area and
reversed an earlier overtime
loss at home rather convinc-
ingly, earning a 76-59 tri-
umph.
The unflappable Fox was
on fire, finding the range
early and remaining on tar-
get as he scored a game-high
29 points. Brandon Huff was
a beast inside as well, putting
18 on the board, and relent-
less Logan Huff earned a rare
triple-double, taming the
twine for 17 points to go with
11 assists and 10 boards.
J-L led 36-27 at the half
before pulling away and
outscoring the host Warriors
23-10 in the third quarter.
Austin Vance tallied 26 to
lead Forest Area, which
slipped to 6-5 overall.
J-L (7-6, 6-5) played at the
court of unbeaten Bellaire on
Wednesday, Feb. 12, after this
issue went to press. On
Monday, Feb. 17, the
Cardinals play host to St.
Mary and on Wednesday,
Feb. 19, they play at Inland
Lakes.
Cards improve to .500 with impressive victory over
cross-county foe, win again at Forest Area

Mancelona struggles in loss to Central Lake
By Mike Dunn
GAYLORD In one of the
most unexpected upsets of
the season, the never-say-die
St. Mary boys of coach Ken
Blust got the best of visiting
Onaway 66-51 on Friday, Feb.
7, in a Ski Valley clash featur-
ing teams at the opposite end
of the league standings.
Onaway came into the
game with an 11-2 mark and
8-1 in the Ski Valley and
trailed only unbeaten front-
runner Bellaire in the stand-
ings. St. Mary, coming off a
lopsided loss at home to
improving Johannesburg-
Lewiston, was 2-8 overall and
1-6 in the league entering the
contest.
The loss was a tough one
for Onaway, making the road
to a possible share of the SVC
title this season that much
higher and longer.
The game was no fluke. St.
Mary played well from the
start, getting back on defense
and denying easy access
passes to Onaways potent
inside players Joe
OBradovich and Carlos
Bautista. The Snowbirds,
fueled by the hot hand of
rangy senior wing Charles
Strehl, led 11-3 after the first
quarter and 22-16 at the half.
Onaway, normally an explo-
sive team, made just three
shots from the floor in the
entire first half.
The Cardinals tried to
storm back in the second half
but could never seem to get
into a consistent offensive
rhythm. Part of that was just
a cold shooting night and
part of that was St. Marys
relentless defensive pressure.
It turned out to be a great
upset win for the Snowbirds.
Strehl, in the midst of a super
season, struck for a game-
high 23 points on the night
and Jumpin Jack Lochinski
launched 20 through the
iron. Senior guard Nick
Harrington, who played a
stellar two-way game, hit for
10.
OBradovich paced the
Cardinals with 15 points and
Bautista put 11 on the board
in an unusually quiet night
for the Bruise Brothers.
Onaway (11-3, 8-2) was
back in action at Mancelona
on Wednesday, Feb. 12, in
another key league clash.
St. Mary (3-8, 2-6) played
host to Alanson on
Wednesday, Feb. 12. On
Thursday, Feb. 13, the busy
Snowbirds play at Central
Lake and on Friday, Feb. 14,
they are home against
Pellston. On Monday, Feb. 17,
they play at Johannesburg-
Lewiston and on Wednesday,
Feb. 19, they are home
against Mancelona.
Forest Area 59
Inland Lakes 55
FIFE LAKE The Inland
Lakes boys of coach Tom
Mahoney seemed to have
turned a corner this season.
The young Bulldogs have
only won a few games this
season but theyre playing
everybody tougher and
tougher as the season goes
along.
The latest example is the
59-55 loss at the court of Ski
Valley foe Forest Area on
Monday. The Bulldogs, who
slipped to 2-10 overall, gave
the high-powered Warriors a
four-quarter war.
Scrap-iron tough senior
Todd Athey tagged the twine
for 16 points to pace the bat-
tling Bulldogs. Senior Nick
Aldrich also helped the
cause, canning 10 points,
and sweet-shooting sopho-
more Mike OConnor, one of
several talented sophomores
on this years roster, also gen-
erated 10 points.
Senior Justin Burke put 23
on the board to pace the vic-
torious Warriors.
I-Lakes (2-10) played host
to Forest Area on Wednesday,
Feb. 12. On Friday, Feb. 14,
the Bulldogs play at Onaway.
On Monday, Feb. 17, they
entertain Mancelona.
Onaway 73
Central Lake 61
ONAWAY The Onaway
boys of coach Eddy
Szymoniak turned in a strong
performance on Wednesday,
Feb. 5, against visiting Ski
Valley rival Central Lake, ral-
lying from a first-quarter
deficit to secure a 73-61 deci-
sion and improve to 11-2 on
the season.
The Cardinals battled back
from a 20-16 deficit to take a
27-24 lead into the locker
room at halftime. In the sec-
ond half, the Cardinals
worked the ball inside to
bruising senior forwards Joe
OBradovich and Carlos
Bautista and the Bruise
Brothers responded, scoring
19 of the teams 24 points in
the fourth quarter.
For the game, OBradovich
and Bautista combined for 59
points and 21 rebounds.
OBradovich burned the nets
for 25 points with 11 boards
and Bautista banged home
24 points with 10 boards. Joe
Sigsby also helped the cause,
sinking nine and Andrew
Prow was poison from the
perimeter once again, scor-
ing nine on three treys.
Connor Zook tallied 16 to
lead the Trojans.
Mio 55, Alcona 36
MIO The Mio boys
pushed their record to 12-1
with a workmanlike 55-32
victory over visiting Lincoln
Alcona on Friday, Feb. 7.
The Thunderbolts, fresh off
an impressive non-league
victory at the court of talent-
ed Lake City, controlled play
from the start. Bryce
DeGrammont put up mon-
ster numbers in the contest,
draining the twine for 17
points while dominating
inside and pulling down 15
rebounds.
Super-slick sophomore
wing Big Ben Lubitz lubri-
cated the nets for 14 points
and strong-armed Aaron
Georgieff generated 13.
Trenton Lavergne tallied 19
to lead Alcona.
Mio (12-1) played host to
Hillman on Tuesday, Feb. 11.
The game did not count in
the league standings but the
Thunderbolts were looking
to reverse their only loss this
season.
Mackinaw City 72
Alanson 43
MACKINAW CITY The
Mackinaw City boys of coach
Austin Krieg turned up the
juice and ran to a 72-43 victo-
ry over game-but-out-
manned Alanson on
Wednesday, Feb. 5.
Jonah Robbins had a whale
of a game for the host
Comets, jamming the iron for
24 points, and he was hotter
than jalapeno stew from
beyond the long black line,
making the twine jump six
times from 3-point land.
Noah Morse had the arc
flowing from the floor, drain-
ing the nets for 16 points,
while Carson Hartman hit for
nine and Zach Smith and
Matt Rivera each rang up
eight.
Bellaire 65
Inland Lakes 38
BELLAIRE The young
Inland Lakes squad of coach
Joe Mahoney didnt have the
firepower or experience to
stay with unbeaten and
state-ranked Bellaire on
Wednesday, Feb. 5, in their
Ski Valley clash but the
Bulldogs did put up a good
fight. The I-Lakes sopho-
mores, a very talented group
gaining plenty of varsity floor
time this season, combined
to score 37 of the teams 38
points, something Mahoney
was very pleased with.
Ryan Howery rang up 12 to
lead the way for the Bulldogs
and Andrew Dufek delivered
10.
Denny Hall tallied 26 for
the high-powered Eagles.
The Bulldogs fell to 2-9
after the loss.
Mancelona 69
Pellston 52
PELLSTON The Pellston
boys of coach Larry Cassidey
were HUGE underdogs on
Wednesday, Feb. 5, against
visiting Ski Valley power
Mancelona but the Hornets
made a game of it, rallying
from a lopsided 38-13 deficit
at halftime to outscore the
high-powered Ironmen by a
39-31 margin in the second
half.
Will Seldon made the nets
shake to the tune of 21 points
to lead the Hornets and
Connor Kintz connected for
18. Tanner Keller showed up
strong inside, scoring nine
with 18 rebounds.
Junior sharpshooter
Brandon Dingman had a typ-
ical Dingman night, connect-
ing for 35 points, including
17-of-18 from the stripe.
Pellston slipped to 3-9
overall and 3-7 in the league.
By Mike Dunn
ALPENA The Gaylord
boys of coach Tim ORourke
showed plenty of scrap and
spirit against Big North
opponents Traverse City
Central and Alpena last week.
Unfortunately, the hardwork-
ing Blue Devils werent able
to generate enough firepower
to overtake either of their
foes.
On Tuesday, Feb. 4, the
Blue Devils battled back in
the second half to give
Central a test but in the end
the visiting Trojans were able
to hold on for a 50-45 victory.
On Friday, Feb. 7, Gaylord
traveled to the court of
league-power Alpena and
once again played very tough
while suffering a 55-40 loss.
The battling Blue Devils, who
were huge underdogs, rallied
in the third quarter to cut the
Alpena lead to just six points.
It was a marked improve-
ment over the previous time
the Blue Devils lost to Alpena
when the taller Wildcats
routed them by 34 points, 78-
44.
Alpenas big-scoring duo,
Andy Merwede and Tyler
Pintar, paced the Wildcat
attack on Friday. The sweet-
shooting Merwede tallied 25
and Pintar added 13 to help
Alpena improve to 11-1 over-
all and 7-1 in the Big North.
The battling Blue Devils of
ORourke, who have an infu-
sion of rich talent coming up
from the JV next year, slipped
to 3-9 overall and 0-7 in the
league.
Merwede controlled play
inside for Alpena, grabbing a
whopping 18 rebounds in
addition to his 25 points.
For Gaylord, Zach
Pasternak produced 12
points to lead a balanced
scoring ledger and smooth-
flowing junior forward Collin
Watters joined him in double
digits, pouring in 11. Junior
guard Steven Fitzek fired in
eight and hardworking junior
guard Marcus ORourke rang
up six points with a pair of
connections from beyond
the arc.
The Gaylord JV improved
to 11-1 with a hard-fought
61-59 overtime victory.
The freshmen game also
went to overtime but the
Wildcats prevailed in that
one, 72-66.
ON TUESDAY, Feb. 4, in the
50-45 loss to T.C. Central, the
Blue Devils started slowly but
made a game of it with an
inspired effort. Gaylord
stormed back from a 13-
point halftime deficit to score
20 points in the third quarter,
fueled by the lava-hot hand
of junior Collin Watters, who
drained the nets to score
nine of his team-high 16
points in the stanza.
The rally wasnt enough to
overcome the early deficit
but the Blue Devils did play
some of their best ball in the
third and fourth quarters,
another indicator of the
direction the team is going.
Watters wound up with a
diligent double-double,
bringing down 10 rebounds
to go with his 16 points. The
dependable Pasternak pum-
meled the twine for 10 points
and covered the floor defen-
sively like a fresh coat of wax,
making five steals.
Fitzek canned seven points
and hauled in six caroms.
Marcus ORourke, who plays
with the throttle stuck at full
zoom, came back from an
injury to play with his usual
intensity in the fourth quar-
ter. Blayne Baker also helped
the Blue Devil cause with a
beastly defensive effort along
with tenacious Ty Coonrod
and Leland Huey.
The Gaylord JV recorded
an impressive 55-42 win over
the Trojans with slicing,
slashing sophomore Jakovan
Pryor-McCovery putting up
24 points and Jack Korte and
Jacob Freeman each finding
the range to score 13.
Gaylord (3-9, 0-7) played
host to the Sault on Tuesday,
Feb. 11. On Wednesday, Feb.
12, the Blue Devils played at
T.C. Central. This Friday, Feb.
14, the Blue Devils are home
against league rival T.C. West.
On Tuesday, Feb. 18, they are
slated to play at Cheboygan.

MACKINAW CITY The
path to a third-straight
Northern Lakes Conference
championship for the
Mackinaw City girls of coach
Adam Stefanski hit a big
detour on Thursday, Feb. 6,
when the Comets dropped a
47-38 decision to the tall, tal-
ented Loggers of Boyne Falls.
The Loggers (12-3, 11-0)
remained unbeaten in league
play in pursuit of their first-
ever NLC title. The Comets
(12-3, 10-2) suffered their
second loss to the front-run-
ners and face an uphill climb
to earn a share of the cham-
pionship. Its still possible
but not likely.
The Comets, who have
been playing without star
sophomore Chelsey Closs for
weeks, put up a stiff fight on
the home floor but the
Loggers proved to be too
much. The visitors forced 21
turnovers in the contest but
the outcome was still up in
the air late in the fourth
quarter when the Loggers
made a final run that assured
the win.
Mack City trailed by just
three points, 40-37, with two-
and-a-half minutes to go
when Casey Matelski made a
critical steal and turned it
into a transition layup for
Boyne Falls, pushing the lead
to five points and putting the
Comets in a position where
they needed at least two pos-
sessions to tie or pull ahead.
The Comets were not able
to make up the ground and
eventually they had to start
fouling. The Loggers made
their free throws down the
stretch to gain the well-
deserved win.
Mack City led 21-14 in the
first quarter but the Loggers
stormed back to claim a 25-
22 lead at the half in the see-
saw affair. Mack City, fueled
by the hot hand of senior
Brooke Yoder and sopho-
more Lily Alexander, came
back again early in the third
quarter to regain the lead but
the Loggers rallied again to
reclaim the lead before the
start of the fourth quarter.
The Loggers had a slim
lead until Matelskis steal and
layup and the Comets were
not able to regain the lost
ground in the final minutes.
Sophomore Lily Alexander,
one of several promising
underclassmen on the Mack
City roster, served up 15
points to lead the Comets
and she also pulled down
seven boards. Senior Brooke
Yoder burned the nets for 11
points and senior Lauren Bell
rang up five and covered the
floor like snow on an ever-
green defensively, notching
six steals.
Junior forward Raegan
Pedigo tallied 14 to pace the
Loggers and grabbed seven
rebounds. Emily Matelski hit
for seven points and issued
seven assists and Casey
Matelski scored seven.

Say this about the 2013-14
Petoskey High School boys
basketball team: The
Northmen will keep the
interest piqued.
Thanks to a white-knuck-
ling 50-48 double-overtime
Big North Conference victory
over Cadillac, Petoskey
entered the week firmly in
the hunt among a quartet of
teams chasing the league
championship.
There are four good teams
in the league, Petoskey
coach Dennis Starkey said.
To be in a situation where if
we win our games well have
a real good chance to win the
league, thats all you can ask
for this time of year.
Leave it in your own
hands, thats where we are.
Alpena entered the week 7-
1 in the conference and 12-1
overall, while Petoskey and
Cadillac were tied for second
at 6-3. Traverse City West,
which is 4-3 in the league, is
tied with the Northmen and
Vikings in the loss column.
It sets up a mad dash to
finish, and Petoskey, which is
10-5 overall, faces a favorable
slate the rest of the way,
beginning with a league
game at West Branch
Ogemaw Heights on Friday.
After a non-leaguer at Sault
Ste. Marie on Tuesday, the
Northmen play host to
Alpena on Friday, Feb. 21.
That game will cap a
seven-day, three-game Big
North gauntlet for the
Wildcats during which they
will visit Cadillac, T.C. West
and Petoskey.
Were lucky to have this
break in the schedule and
most teams are making up
games because of (early sea-
son) snowouts, said Starkey,
whose team dropped a close
67-61 decision at Alpena ear-
lier this season. Weve got a
chance to regroup, work on
things we need to work on,
and hopefully head into that
last 2 weeks with a full
head of steam.
I really feel good about
where the guys are and our
mindset. This is a good time
to be playing your best bas-
ketball, and thats hopefully
what were doing right now.
Petoskeys mettle was put
to the test last weekend,
when it fell, 66-56, at T.C.
West on Friday. That came
four days after the Northmen
dropped a 53-48 non-leaguer
at home to resurgent
Cheboygan.
That set the stage for
Saturdays home date with
Cadillac, an almost must-win
for Petoskey if it hoped to
remain a viable candidate for
the league title.
The Northmen built a 32-
16 lead early in the third
quarter, only to see the
Vikings rally to forge a 40-40
tie at the end of regulation. It
was 43-43 after the first over-
time, then Petoskey
outscored the Vikings, 7-5, in
the second extra session to
finally end it.
Joe LeBlanc led the
Northmen with 15 points,
while Nick Mesnard added
nine, and Jason Bur and Evan
Whitmore finished with eight
apiece.
While LeBlanc made a
major contribution on the
offensive end, it was his
defense that really stood out.
The 6-foot-4 senior center
limited Cadillacs leading
scorer, Jalen Brooks, to just
eight points. Brooks entered
the game averaging 19 per
contest.
Andrew Emington scored
17 points to lead Cadillac,
while Lewis Finch added 10.
While the win most impor-
tantly kept the Northmen in
the thick of things in the Big
North, it served several other
purposes, a shot of confi-
dence for a young team the
Northmen started just one
senior and four sophomores
saw significant playing time
chief among them.
Obviously it was the
biggest win of the year for
us, said Starkey, whose team
lost, 50-42, at Cadillac less
than two weeks previous in a
game that was not as close as
the final score indicated.
Coming off the disappoint-
ing loss at West and then to
play a team that handled us
pretty well at Cadillac, to play
the way we did to build the
16-point lead was just a cred-
it to our guys because we had
lost two games in the week
and things could have gone
either way, and they really
responded well in getting off
to a fast start.
I sure hope (the win) gives
us a boost and it should.
The guys can see that theyve
improved and were a better.
It says a lot about our mind-
set going forward.
LeBlanc scored 18 points
and grabbed six rebounds to
lead the Northmen in their
loss to West, while Bur and
Whitmore added nine
apiece.
Alex Scott scored 23 points
and Stephan Sheppard
added 17 for the Titans.
Girls basketball
The Petoskey High School
girls basketball team slipped
to 1-14 overall, 1-8 in the Big
North with a 36-20 home loss
on Saturday to Cadillac.
The win lifted Cadillac to
13-4, 9-1.
It was the 12th consecutive
loss for the Northmen, who
dropped a 33-21 Big North
decision to Traverse City
West on Thursday.
Kati Lewis scored six
points to lead the Northmen
against Cadillac.
Natalie Weaver led
Petoskey with six points
against West.
Northmen remain in the league-
championship hunt

GAYLORD Thirteen
wrestlers from Gaylord and
Petoskey high schools will
compete Saturday in the
Division II Individual
Regional Tournament at
Western High School in Bay
City.
All 13 of those wrestlers
seven from Gaylord, six from
Petoskey punched their
ticket to the regional by fin-
ishing in the top four in their
respective weight classes last
week at the Individual
District Tournament at
Gaylord High School.
Three of those wrestlers, all
from Gaylord, were crowned
district champions, while
four others, two from each
school, finished runner-up.
Gaylord was scheduled to
wrestle on Wednesday, Feb.
12, in the Division II Team
Regional at Mount Pleasant.
The Blue Devils were to face
Greenville in a semifinal
match. Bay City Western and
Escanaba were to square off
in the other semifinal.
Western, Gaylord and
Greenville are ranked sixth,
seventh and eighth, respec-
tively, in the Division II state
poll by Michigan Grappler.
The regional champion
advances to the state finals at
Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek
beginning Friday, Feb. 21.
Gaylord earned its berth in
the team regional by topping
Petoskey, 39-18, last week in
the championship of the
team district. It was Gaylords
seventh consecutive team
district crown.
The Blue Devils Dominic
LaJoie (103 pounds),
Jonathan Martin (112) and
Tristan Gregory (189) each
won his respective weight
class in the individual dis-
trict, while Gaylords Seth
Lashuay (125) and Shane
Foster (189) each finished
second.
Petoskeys Trevor
Giallombardo (103) and Gage
Paul (119) also claimed sec-
ond places.
Trent Lashuay (112) and
Jeff Heinz (135) of Gaylord
each finished third, as did
Petoskeys Scott Kibbe (119),
Nick Strobel (140) and Cam
Plath (152). Petoskeys Trevor
Denoyer (189) finished
fourth.
LaJoie, a freshman who is
ranked fifth at 103 in Division
II, remained undefeated on
the season (43-0) in rolling to
the district title. He defeated
Petoskeys Giallombardo, on
a 20-4 technical fall, in the
championship match.
Giallombardo, a sophomore
who is ranked seventh in the
state, is 32-5.
Martin, a sophomore who
is ranked ninth at 112,
improved to 40-4 with his
district title. He topped Noah
Scheonherr of Bay City
Western, 8-7, in the title
match. Trent Lashuay, a
freshman who is 41-4 and an
honorable mention in the
112-pound rankings, took a
15-2 major decision from
Sam Woods of Bay City John
Glenn in the third-place
match.
Gregory defeated team-
mate Foster, 2-1, in the 189-
pound final, improving to 42-
1 on the season. Gregory, a
junior, is ranked fourth in the
state. Foster, a sophomore, is
37-4 and ranked fifth.
Seth Lashuay fell to Blake
Jackson of Bay City Western,
6-0, in overtime in the 125-
pound final. Lashuay is 37-6
on the season. Heinz pinned
Logan Mlujeak of John Glenn
in 1:40 in the third-place
match at 135, improving to
35-12. Heinz is an honorable
mention in the Division II
rankings at 135.
Petoskeys Paul and Kibbe
finished second and third,
respectively, at 119. Paul was
pinned by Coby Moore of Bay
City Western in 1:24 in an all-
freshman final and is 31-8 on
the season.
Kibbe, a sophomore,
topped Levi Stoll of West
Branch Ogemaw Heights, 7-
0, in the third-place match.
Strobel defeated Cole Clark
of John Glenn, 7-2, in the
third-place match at 140,
improving to 36-5. Strobel is
ranked fifth. Plath took a 12-5
decision over Michael James
of Sault Ste. Marie in the
third-place match at 152.
Plath is 37-7 on the year.
Denoyer lost the third-
place match at 189 to Cody
Okes of Bay City Western.
Denoyer is 28-10.
Gaylord won 10 of the 14
matches in downing
Petoskey last week to win the
team district title. Petoskey,
which defeated Ogemaw
Heights, 37-27, for the right
to wrestle Gaylord for the dis-
trict crown, finished 19-3 in
duals.
Petoskeys wins against the
Blue Devils came from Mike
Kibbe (125), Strobel (140),
Plath (152) and Jordan
Conklin (160). The wins for
Conklin, Plath and Strobel
came on pins.
Gaylord got victories from
LaJoie, Trent Lashuay,
Martin, Matt Kempfer, Jacob
Panosso, Tristan Blanzy,
Forest Madagame, Gregory,
Foster and Michael Shyrock.
The wins by Foster and
Kempfer came on pins.
Against Ogemaw,
Petoskeys winners were
Giallombardo (pin), Paul,
Scott Kibbe, Mike Kibbe,
Austin Linn, Strobel (pin),
Plath and Denoyer.
We had a great season,
although we fell short of
achieving our goals winning
the Big North Conference
and team district, Petoskey
coach Nate Gross said. We
took care of a lackluster per-
formance against Ogemaw
during the conference dual
by coming out and winning
the first dual (in the district).
Aside from a couple of men-
tal errors, we looked good
against a tough Gaylord
team.
Division III: Seven

RUDYARD In a way, the
game echoed the season for
the Cheboygan High School
boys basketball team.
The Chiefs found them-
selves in a 20-8 deficit early
on, then responded to post a
74-61 victory over Rudyard to
clinch a share of the Straits
Area Conference champi-
onship, Cheboygans first
league basketball crown
since 2010.
The Chiefs, who entered
the week 8-5 overall, are 6-1
in league play. They can wrap
up the outright title in their
league finale at home on
Friday, Feb. 21, against St.
Ignace.
Ben Pearson scored 23
points and Luke Harrington
and Zack Socha added 15
apiece to lead Cheboygan
past Rudyard.
The Chiefs responded to
their 12-point deficit, and by
halftime had seized a 38-31
advantage.
We knew it wasnt going to
be easy, but these kids really
hung in there, first-year
Cheboygan coach Steve Ernst
said. The kids earned it and
Im proud of them.
While Cheboygan finished
strong on Friday, the same
could be said about the sea-
son in general. The Chiefs
were 3-4 at one point, and
their win over Rudyard
extended their win streak to
four.
Included in that recent
surge are victories over both
Petoskey and Sault Ste.
Marie, teams that beaten the
Chiefs the first time they met
this season. Perhaps most
telling about how far the
Chiefs have come under
Ernst is their results against
the Sault. The Blue Devils
throttled Cheboygan by 40
points on opening night. Two
weeks ago, Cheboygan took a
how-do-you-like-us-now 60-
57 win over the Sault.
The poise of this team is
very good right now, and the
kids have continued to
evolve, theyve worked hard,
and theyve improved, Ernst
said.
Brady Hiller added 11
points and grabbed eight
rebounds for the Chiefs
against Rudyard, while point
guard Derek Sturvist finished
with eight points and eight
rebounds.
Two nights earlier, the
Northmen rolled past
Newberry, 73-40, in a SAC
game.
Harrington hit six 3-point-
ers en route to a game-high
24 points to lead the Chiefs,
while Pearson added 17
points and nine rebounds.
Hiller chipped in eight
points.
Girls basketball
The Cheboygan High
School girls basketball team
slipped back to the .500 mark
on Friday with a 50-39 Straits
Area Conference loss to
Rudyard.
Brooke Hancock scored 15
points, grabbed four
rebounds and made five
steals to lead Cheboygan, 7-
7. Macey Charboneau added
nine points.
The loss came three nights
after a 47-35 non-league win
over Petoskey, a result that
gave the Chiefs a season-
sweep of the series with the
Northmen.
It was the first time since
2007 that the Chiefs have
swept the season series with
Petoskey.
Hancock scored 16 points
and grabbed five rebounds to
lead the Chiefs, while
Carolyn Clark added nine
points and six rebounds.

BOYNE CITY The
Cheboygan girls put the dis-
appointing loss to Rudyard
the game before well out of
their minds on Monday, trav-
eling to Boyne City and post-
ing an impressive 56-31 vic-
tory over the Ramblers.
The Chiefs pushed above
the .500 mark with the win,
going to 8-7 for the season.
Cheboygan once again
employed a balanced scoring
attack to earn the win, with
Macey Charboneau and
Brooke Hancock each burn-
ing the nets for 11 points and
Bridget Blaskowski blasting
away for nine, Hannah
Hudak hammering the nets
for eight, and Autumn Hudak
hitting for seven.
Blaskowski also covered
the floor like wet on water,
earning five steals, and she
issued four assists as well.
The Windex glass cleaners for
Cheboygan on the night were
Macey with eight boards and
Autumn Hudak with seven.
Mariah Kane canned five
points to help the cause
while Carolyn Clark and
Delaney Gravlin each scored
four.
Rainy McCune connected
for eight points to lead Boyne
City.
Cheboygan, paced by six
points from Morgan
Goodrich, dropped a 33-23
decision in the JV contest.
Cheboygan (8-7) played
host to non-league foe
Gaylord on Tuesday, Feb. 11.
The Chiefs play host to
Alpena on Monday, Feb. 17.
St. Mary 62
Central Lake 32
CENTRAL LAKE The St.
Mary girls of coach Dan
Smith went on the road on
Monday, Feb. 10, and did
what they had to do, securing
a workmanlike 62-32 deci-
sion over host Central Lake.
The win pushed the state-
ranked Snowbirds one step
closer to an unbeaten season
in the Ski Valley and possible
sole ownership of the league
title.
Savvy, sweet-shooting sen-
ior guard Kari Borowiak, who
signed her letter-of-intent
Tuesday afternoon to play at
the next level for Concordia,
blistered the twine for a
game-high 28 points with a
typically efficient effort.
Long-armed sophomore
Bekah Myler made the nets
swim for 16 points while
earning a double-double.
Bekah also brought down 11
rebounds.
Mariah Cords canned
seven for Central Lake, which
slipped to 9-6 overall and 7-5
in the league.
St. Mary (15-1, 12-0)
played host to Mancelona on
Tuesday, Feb. 11. On
Thursday, Feb. 13, the
Snowbirds play at the court
of Bellaire in a much-antici-
pated showdown of Ski Valley
powers. The Eagles, whose
only previous league loss was
to St. Mary, need a victory
this time around to have any
chance of earning a share of
the league title.
Onaway 57
Inland Lakes 28
ONAWAY The Onaway
girls of coach Marty Mix
improved to 8-7 overall and
6-6 in the Ski Valley with a
workmanlike 57-28 victory
on Thursday, Feb. 6, against
visiting Inland Lakes. The
Cardinals lost starting point
guard Jade Galer to injury
before the game and it took a
while to get into an offensive
flow as a result.
We were on our heels at
the start but we made some
adjustments with Jade out of
the lineup and that helped us
regain our intensity and con-
fidence, Mix reported.
Onaway led 12-8, 26-15
and 48-16 at the quarter
breaks.
Lexi Szymoniak showed up
strong for the Cardinals, can-
ning 10 points and corralling
16 rebounds. Devin Bristley
blistered the nets for 16
points and Erika Price was
right on time with 13 points.
Onaway earned a league
victory at Mancelona on
Tuesday, Feb. 4 (see separate
story and photos of that
game in this issue).
The Cardinals (8-7, 6-6)
played at Forest Area on
Tuesday, Feb. 11, and were
home against Central Lake
on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
Johannesburg-Lewiston 73
Pellston 26
JOHANNESBURG The
Johannesburg-Lewiston girls
of coach Heather Huff
bounced back from the
tough loss at Bellaire to claim
a 73-26 victory over visiting
Pellston on Thursday, Feb. 6,
and then outscore scrappy
non-league foe Tawas Area
77-43 on Monday.
Senior Brittany Cherwinski
and sophomore Madison
Showerman rained down 19
and 18 points, respectively, to
lead the up-tempo J-L assault
on the iron and Sydney
McKinney stirred the nets for
10.
The Cardinals suffered a
41-31 setback at Bellaire on
Tuesday, Feb. 4, the second
loss this season to the talent-
ed Eagles. Bellaire improved
to 12-2 overall and 9-1 in the

KALKASKA The Grayling
boys varsity basketball team
must love playing. Because,
the Vikings played a pair of
overtime games last week,
including a thrilling double-
overtime affair against Lake
Michigan Conference rival
Kalkaska on Friday, Feb. 7.
The Vikings (9-5 overall, 5-
5 conference) had topped
Kalkaska by 53 points on
their home floor earlier in the
season. But, last Friday,
Grayling needed two over-
times and a last second shot
to edge the Blazers, 78 76.
Grayling early on seemed
ready for a second rout, lead-
ing 15 5 after the opening
period and still holding a 28 -
20 advantage at intermission.
Kalkaska, however, turned
the tables on the Vikes in the
second half.
And, the Blazers were in
control for much of the
fourth quarter and were up
by two points with 30 sec-
onds to play, with the ball.
But, the Blazers took a risky
three point attempt, giving
Grayling time to hit a shot
that knotted the score at 55 55
at the end of regulation.
Kalkaskas Will Noble, who
hit five treys on the night,
returned the favor less than
four minutes later, knocking
down a trey to rally his team
to a 67 67 tie and force a sec-
ond overtime period.
A crazy and intense
game, said Grayling head
coach Rich Moffit. Give
Kalkaska a ton of credit. Their
kids played outstanding and
hit some pressure shots.
Will Noble of Kalkaska
was outstanding in the
game.
Grayling raced out and
scored eight points of the
second overtime. Again,
however, Kalkaska rallied.
This time Arron Zimmerman
was the one chipping in from
long range with a pair of
threes, while Cooper helped
out with repeatedly getting to
and converting at the free-
throw line.
But, it just wasn't enough,
with Grayling's Tyler
McClanahan driving the lane
for a buzzer beating shot to
finally end the game in the
Vikings' favor.
Our kids competed in this
game and made some pres-
sure shots down the stretch,
Moffit added. We shot poor-
ly from the free throw line
and the arc, but we were able
to overcome adversity and
get the win.
Tyler McClanahan had an
outstanding all-round game
and led the Vikings with 24
points, 4 rebounds, 9 steals
and 6 assists.
Justice Junttila posted a
double-double with 13
points, 18 rebounds, 1 steal
and 2 assists, while Jake
Swander chipped in with 10
points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, 1
assist and 2 blocked shots in
just his third game back after
missing much of the season
with a foot injury.
Other contributors for
Grayling included: Peyton
Zigila with 9 points, 2
rebounds and 1 steal; Matt
Burrell with 6 points, 5
rebounds and 1 steal; Geoff
Wilson with 5 points, 6
rebounds and 1 steal;
Michael Branch with 4
points, 5 rebounds and 4
steals; Carson Burmeister
with 3 points, 4 rebounds
and 2 assists; Scout Tobin
with 2 points, 1 rebound and
1 steal; and Scott Wakeley
with 1 rebound.
Grayling 71, Traverse City
St. Francis 68 (OT)
The Vikings played and
won their first overtime
game of the week by beating
visiting Traverse City St.
Francis, 71-68, on Tuesday,
Feb. 4.
Great win for our kids and
the Viking Nation, Moffit
said. We made some big
time shots during crunch
time.
I was very pleased with
our defensive effort when the
game was on the line. I
thought our kids stepped it
up down the stretch.
The LMC clash turned out
to be a see-saw affair, with
the Gladiators up at halftime,
27-24. But, Grayling surged
ahead by outgunning St.
Francis, 24-15, to take a six-
point advantage, 48-42, in
the final eight minutes of reg-
ulation.
Traverse City again rallied
to knot the score at 63-63 to
force overtime. However,
then it was Graylings turn
and the Vikings ended the
drama and got the win
when they outscored the
Gladiators, 8-5, in the extra
stanza.
T-Macs (McClanahan)
three-ball from the arc with
17 seconds left to tie the
game was huge, Moffit
added. What was even big-
ger was Jake Swanders effort
to get an offensive rebound
with 23 seconds left and
which gave us the opportuni-
ty to tie the game. Great team
effort.
McClanahan finished the
game with a team-best 23
points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal
and 3 assists. And, off the
bench, Matt Burrell hit for a
career high 17 points, 8
rebounds, 2 steals and 2
assists.
Also contributing for
Grayling in the win were:
Junttila with 9 points, 12
rebounds, 2 steals and 2
assists; Swander with 8
points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals
and 2 assists; Tobin with 6
points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals
and 1 assist; Wilson with 4
points and 7 rebounds;
Burmeister with 4 points, 2
rebounds, 2 steals, 3 assists
and 1 blocked shot; Branch
with 8 rebounds, 3 steals and
2 assists; and Mason
Papendick with 1 rebound.
Grayling 69, Harbor
Springs 65
Grayling didnt need over-
time to beat the host Harbor
Springs Rams on Monday,
Feb. 3, but they did need a
big second half.
The Vikings trailed, 37-26,
at halftime of the conference
matchup. But, Grayling ral-
lied by dominating the sec-
ond half, including the fourth
quarter, 26-17.
A trio of double-digit scor-
ers helped lead the Vikings.
McClanahan tallied 13
points, 3 rebounds, 4 steals, 4
assists and 1 blocked shot,
while Branch added 10
points, 9 rebounds and 1
steal. And, Burmeister
chipped in 11 points, 1
rebound, 3 steals and 4
assists in the win.
Other cagers contributing
for the Vikes were: Wilson
with 9 points, 3 rebounds
and 3 steals; Swander with 8
points, 1 rebound, 2 steals
and 3 assists; Junttila with 6
points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals
and 1 assist; Zigila with 4
points, 4 rebounds and 2
steals; Papendick with 4
points and 4 rebounds; and

KALAMAZOO The Bay
Reps traveled to Wings
Stadium in Kalamazoo on
Friday, Feb. 7, to battle
Mattawan and the teams
were tied 0-0 after one peri-
od. Two minutes and 25 sec-
onds into the second period
John VanRaalte pulled the
trigger and gave the Reps a 1-
0 lead with a rocket blast,
with Carson Altonen and
Chase Joppich earning
assists.
Mattawan tied the game
with just 22 seconds left in
the second period. Then, in
the third period with just 1:05
left, Andrew Dzierwa came
through big time in the
clutch, lighting the lamp to
give the Reps a 2-1 win. Gavin
Uitvlugt assisted on the win-
ning goal. The unflappable
Jay Jones got the win in net,
stopping 17 of the 18 shots he
faced.
On Saturday the Reps were
in Grand Rapids to battle
Forest Hills
Northern/Eastern at
Patterson Arena. The Reps
trailed 2-0 before a VanRaalte
goal with 2:16 in the first
period got the Reps within a
goal. Joppich and Trevor
Apsey assisted.
Forest Hills reestablished a
two-goal lead five minutes
into the second period but a
Travis Kirk goal with 32 sec-
onds left in the period cut the
deficit to one again. The dan-
gerous Dzierwa earned an
assist on the Kirk goal.
The enterprising Kirk
scored his second goal of the
day four minutes into the
third period to tie the score at
3, with help from Jakson
Drake and Garrett Diola.
Forest Hills retook the lead,
however, with 5:26 left in the
period but Carson Altonen's
unassisted goal with 55 sec-
onds left sent the game to
overtime.
The Reps seemed to be the
stronger team in OT but a
defensive breakdown lead to
a Forest Area breakaway and
the winning goal with 3:25
left in overtime.
The Reps will be hosting
Cheboygan, Petoskey, and
Manistee on Friday and
Saturday at Centre Ice in the
end of the league tourna-
ment to determine the
Northern Michigan Hockey
League Championship.

HESPERIA The Mio and
Mancelona wrestling teams
competed Saturday in the
Div. 4 individual district tour-
nament held at Hesperia.
Eight wrestlers five from
Mio and three from
Mancelona advanced to the
regional round this coming
Saturday, Feb. 15, at Rogers
City.
There was one champion
from the coverage area to
emerge from the Hesperia
district: Mancelonas Man
Plow, senior Michael
Meadows at 130 pounds.
Meadows, who recently
surpassed 100 wins for his
prep career, pushed his per-
sonal log to 43-5 this season
with impressive victories
over Darwin Dean of Pine
River in the quarterfinals (5-2
decision), Tyler Leffingwell of
Forest Area in the semifinals
(13-2 major decision), and a
third-period pin over previ-
ously unbeaten and top-
seeded Matthew Elliott of
Forest Area in a tense, seesaw
championship match.
Meadows took down
Elliott, who came in with a
32-0 record, late in the third
period and finally got the pin
at the 5:32 mark.
Meadows (43-5) takes on
No. 4 seed Vincente Carlson
of Ishpeming-Westwood in
the opening round of the
regionals at Rogers City. The
top four seeds from each
weight class advance to the
state tournament at Battle
Creek.
Two other Ironmen grap-
plers advanced to the region-
al tourney at Rogers City.
Senior strong man Tristan
Waters (215) earned fourth
place and will advance as a
No. 4 seed. Waters (37-13)
faces No. 1 seed Andrew
Selke (45-5) of Rogers City.
Also moving on for
Mancelona is senior slammer
Keegan Richardson at 285
pounds. Keegan (20-5)
earned a razor-thin 5-4 deci-
sion over Chase Morrison of
Pine River in the consolation
finals to finish as the No. 3
seed. Keegan takes on No. 2
seed Alec VanHorn of
Ishpeming (23-12) in
Saturdays opening round.
FOR MIO, McGregor
advances as a No. 2 seed at
215 pounds. Three other
Thunderbolt grapplers
earned third place to move
on and another finished
fourth.
McGregor (23-12) earned
his berth in the finals with a
pin over Pine Rivers rugged
Dom Garcia in the semifi-
nals. In the district title
match, C-Mac lost a hard-
fought decision to Mantons
talented Noah Thompson.
McGregor engages No. 3 seed
Brayden Fitzpatrick of Iron
Mountain (24-11) in the
opening round.
Other grapplers to advance
for Mio included junior
Patrick Stephens (103), soph-
omore Jordan Brooks (145)
and sophomore Scott Blamer
(152) as third-place finishers
and sophomore Tony Everly
(125) as a fourth-place finish-
er.

sophomore Tommy
Vogelheim (31-16), a No. 2
seed from Rogers City.
Brooks (14-26) faces No. 2
seed Jacob Weslin (28-10) of
Iron Mountain and Blamer
(32-13) faces No. 2 seed
Austin Bober of Rogers City, a
junior with a nearly identical
record of 33-14. Everly (21-
24) faces a stiff challenge in
his opening match Saturday
when he takes on undefeated
No. 1 seed Jared Gauthier
(35-0) of Iron Mountain, a
junior.

GAYLORD The Gaylord
hockey team battled visiting
Mt. Pleasant to a 2-2 tie for
two-plus periods of intense
play on Saturday afternoon
at the Sportsplex but the visi-
tors were able to finish strong
and secure a 5-2 decision.
The young Blue Devils
turned in another honest
effort but couldnt overcome
Mt. Pleasants superior depth
down the stretch.
The Blue Devils trailed 1-0
after a fast, well-played first
period before rallying to tie
the game at the 6:54 mark of
the second period when
Gatling Gun Garrett
Richardson unleashed
another of his patented rock-
et blasts to tie the score on a
power play, with a sweet feed
from Blake Miller.
The Oilers battled back
with score late in the period
on a power play of their own
to take a 2-1 advantage into
the third period but again the
home team in blue-and-gold
rallied to tie the score, this
time when dependable
Jackson Deans, one of the
most accomplished two-way
forwards to ever come
through the Blue Devil pro-
gram, turned on the juice
and put the puck behind
sprawling Oiler goalkeeper
Aaron Friedlin at the 5:21
mark for his eighth tally of
the campaign.
Richardson, Gaylords
leading scorer this season,
earned his sixth assist on the
goal and Cam Laug, who
makes a habit of being in the
right place at the right time,
also generated an assist.
Mt. Pleasant wasnt
through scoring, however, as
Drew Dickinson, Max Heeke
and Collin Lambert all tallied
in a five-minute span to put
the game away. Robert
Backus and Zach Heeke
scored the earlier two Mt.
Pleasant goals.
Mt. Pleasant outshot
Gaylord 14-4 in the decisive
third period and owned a 33-
18 advantage in shots for the
game. Friedlin made 16 saves
for the Oilers and Ethan
ODell turned back 28 of 33
shots for Gaylord.
The Blue Devils had six
power-play opportunities in
the physical contest but
could only produce a goal on
one of those chances.
On Friday, Gaylord faced
high-powered Alpena and
suffered an 8-0 defeat. The
visiting Wildcats put up five
goals in the first period and
never looked back.
A power play goal by Joey
Bracken at the 6:46 mark of
the final period ended the
game because of the mercy
rule.
Alpena outshot the game-
but-outmanned Blue Devils
by a 38-12 margin.
Fridays game also served
as a fundraiser for the Tyler
English family to help defray
medicals costs. Tyler, a
Gaylord student, suffered a
cervical spine and head
injury last summer and
remains in inpatient care at
the U of M Hospital. The Blue
Devils donated a portion of
the proceeds from the game
to the family and there was a
bake sale as well.
ON WEDNESDAY, Feb. 5,
the Blue Devils lost to
Cadillac 11-3.
Richardson recorded two
goals for Gaylord and oppor-
tunistic Blake Miller scored
his second goal of the season.
Richardson also had an assist
on Millers goal and Miller
assisted on Richardsons first
goal. Goalie Ethan ODell
also earned his first assist of
the season.
Gaylord (1-15-1) played
host to T.C. Central on
Wednesday, Feb. 12. The Blue
Devils play this weekend in
Lakeview.
Mt. Pleasant scores three late goals to break up 2-2 tie; Richardson rings up 13th goal of season for Blue Devils

KALKASKA The Grayling
girls varsity basketball team
won the second half of its
Lake Michigan Conference
matchup with host Kalkaska
on Friday, Feb. 7. The prob-
lem, however, is Kalkaska
was that much better in the
first half and won, 57-46.
The Lady Vikings (5-11
overall, 1-9 conference)
outscored Kalkaska by two
points in both the third and
fourth quarters. But, that
was just too little, too late.
Kalkaska dominated early,
outgunning Grayling, 18-10,
in the first quarter and
building a 35-20 lead at half-
time.
Despite the loss, several
Grayling hoopsters had solid
outings. Samantha Denno
led the Lady Vikes with a
double-double of 15 points,
13 rebounds and 2 steals.
Cierra Prosser hit for 12
points, 5 rebounds, 5 steals
and 1 blocked shot, while
Erica Umlor chipped in a
nice all-round effort with 11
points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist
and 3 steals.
Other contributors for
Grayling included: Brittney
Nielson with 6 points, 7
rebounds, 1 assist and 1
steal; Makayla Cragg with 2
points and 7 rebounds;
Rachel Money with 2
rebounds, 1 assist and 3
steals; Courtney Hatfield
with 1 rebound, 7 assists and
1 steal; and Leslie Reilly with
1 assist.
Traverse City St.
Francis 60, Grayling 35
Grayling couldnt over-
come a scoreless first quar-
ter in a 60-35 to host
Traverse City St. Francis on
Wednesday, Feb. 5.
The host Gladiators
blanked Grayling in the
opening stanza and led 35-7
at the half.
Denno paced the Lady
Vikings with 12 points, 10
points and 1 blocked shot.
Prosser was the only other
Grayling cager in double fig-
ures with 10 points, 6
rebounds, 2 steals and 2
assists.
Also contributing for
Grayling were: Umlor with 5
points, 1 rebound, 1 assist
and 2 steals; Hatfield with 2
points, 2 rebounds, 5 assist
and 2 steals; Nielson with 2
points, 5 rebounds and 4
steals; Cragg with 2 points, 1
rebound and 1 steal; Katie
Vierling with 2 points and 2
rebounds; Money with 2
rebounds and 1 steal; Tandy
Mitchell with 1 rebound and
1 assist; and Reilly with 1
assist.

GAYLORD The Gaylord
Gators hosted a swim meet
on Saturday, Feb. 8, at the
Sportsplex.
This week the team was
led by the girls freestyle
swimmers who drowned the
competition with first-place
finishes. Grace Warmbier led
off the assault in the 200-
yard races by taking first
place in the girls 11-12 year
old division followed by
Aurora Green (13-14) and
Holly Wildeman (15-18).
Later in the day, Allie
Rutkowski took first in the
100-yard event followed by
Danielle Hope's victory in
the girls 500-yard race in the
13-14 division, and an excit-
ing finish in the girls 500 race
in the 15-18 division with
Katie Rutkowski besting her
younger sister Allie by a
mere 59 hundredths of a sec-
ond!
Other notable contribu-
tors were Cameron Martella
with one first place finish,
Fayth Sanom and Braedon
Colberg with a first and a
second, Colin Colberg and
Zach Lauster with a second
and a third and Brei Baker,
Halle Busch, Ashlynn
Muellenberg, and Maizy
James with third place fin-
ishes.
The girls relay teams did
well also with the team of
Cameron Martella, Maizy
James, Grace Warmbier, and
Anna Erickson finishing
second in the 200-yard
mixed relay and the team of
A'Vree Garbulinski, Emily
Lauster, Avery Geyer and
Katie Merchant taking a
second in the 200-yard
mixed free relay.
In the "Stars of the Future"
category, Natalia Garrido
dropped 6.77 seconds from
her previous best time in the
girls 8-and-under 50-yard
freestyle, and Rayann
Harding dropped a total of
28.51 seconds in two of her
events.
PELLSTON They need
help. But, as their coach Rick
Duerksen has said, the
Mancelona boys varsity bas-
ketball team also needs to
help itself.
And, the Ironmen did just
that by beating Ski Valley
Conference foe Pellston, 69-
51, on Wednesday, Feb. 5.
Mancelonas Brandon
Dingman had what is becom-
ing the norm an outstand-
ing game with a team-best
35 points, 6 boards and 6
steals. That included a great
night from the free-throw
line, where he hit 17-of-18
attempts.
Griffin Borst chipped in 9
points and 8 rebounds for the
Ironmen.
Will Seldon tallied 21
points to pace host Pellston
(3-9, 3-7) and Connor Kintz
connected for 18 points.
Tanner Keller scored 9 points
and grabbed 18 rebounds.
With the road win, the
Ironmen are 9-3 overall and
7-2 in conference play. That
still leaves them battling
Onaway, which also has two
conference losses, and
league-leader Bellaire in the
standings.
Mancelona travels to
Bellaire on Feb. 25 for what
could be an important
rematch, after having lost to
the Eagles, 51-49, in their first
clash Jan. 31.
Before that, however, the
Ironmen will host Onaway on
Wednesday, Feb. 12, and then
travel to Central Lake on
Friday, Feb. 14.

GRAYLING The Grayling
boys JV basketball team
couldnt defend its home
floor Tuesday, Feb. 4, falling
to Traverse City St. Francis,
65-60.
Trent Hickman led
Grayling with 13 points and 7
rebounds, while Blake
Gregory chipped in 13 points,
and Patrick Ruddy added 9
points and 11 rebounds.
It was a great team effort,
but Traverse City just made
some key shots down the
stretch to beat us, said
Grayling coach Levi Burkett.
I told the team that some-
times you can play well and
do all the right things, but the
other team just shoots better
than you on that night.
That's when you shake
their hands, tell them good
game, and hold your head up
knowing you gave it every-
thing you could, he added. I
am proud our team's effort.
Upcoming games for the JV
Vikes include hosting
Charlevoix on Thursday, Feb.
13, and then East Jordan on
Tuesday, Feb. 18.

This winter, the
Department of Natural
Resources asks those living
along the Great Lakes, espe-
cially Lake Michigan, to keep
an eye out for confused,
stranded waterfowl in local
towns and neighborhoods.
The exceptionally cold
winter weather of the past
few weeks has caused the
bays and waters of the Great
Lakes to freeze much further
into the center than in recent
years. Rather than move far
into the deep waters of the
lakes, some waterfowl
including horned and red-
necked grebes; common,
hooded and red-breasted
mergansers; and long-tailed
ducks are moving from the
larger, freezing waters of the
Great Lakes and are looking
for open water bodies
inland. In foggy, snowy, low-
visibility conditions, these
birds are mistaking icy road-
ways and driveways for
inland water bodies and are
becoming stranded on land.
Grebes, mergansers and a
few species of duck have feet
that are placed far back on
their bodies to allow them
to dive for their preferred
prey fish. Because of this
foot placement, these birds
are not able to take off from
dry land. These stranded
birds can starve if they are
not found and returned to
the water fairly quickly.
Though this happens
almost every year, reports of
stranded waterfowl have
been high this winter.
If you find a stranded
grebe, merganser or duck,
contact a local wildlife reha-
bilitator to help get the bird
to water. To view a list of
licensed wildlife rehabilita-
tors in Michigan, visit
www.michigandnr.com/dlr.
If you encounter a dead
grebe, merganser or duck,
contact your local DNR
Wildlife Field Office or
Operations Service Center.

some waterfowl to seek open waters inland

The Department of
Natural Resources (DNR)
released its final tally on
hunting incidents that
occurred in 2013. There were
a total of nine incidents
reported, including one
fatality. The total is lower
than 2012, when 15 hunting
incidents, including one
fatality, were reported.
Of the nine incidents
reported in 2013, just one
was reported in the Upper
Peninsula, while the others
were reported in Lower
Michigan.
The first hunting incident,
involving a rabbit hunter,
occurred in February 2013 in
Shiawassee County. There
were six incidents involving
deer hunters during various
deer hunting seasons,
including the fatality, which
occurred on opening day of
firearm season (Nov. 15) in
Montmorency County. Six of
the nine incidents involved
self-inflicted firearm
injuries.
We saw a decline in the
number of incidents this
year but, unfortunately, had
one fatal incident, said Lt.
Andrew Turner, who super-
vises the DNR Law
Enforcement Divisions
recreational safety section.
The importance of the
hunter orange law, coupled
with what every hunter
learns in hunter education
classes -- these are all key
factors for having a safe and
enjoyable hunt.
Turner noted that no
hunters under the age of 10
had a hunting incident this
year. The youngest hunter
involved in an incident was a
12-year-old in St. Clair
County who shot high at a
deer, went over the intended
target and struck a chicken
coop, which caused the slug
to ricochet off the coop and
strike another 12-year-old in
the arm.
The fatal incident in
Montmorency County
involved a 52-year-old hunt-
ing from a tree stand who
suffered a self-inflicted gun-
shot wound.
There were two incidents
this season involving cross-
bows, while the rest involved
shotguns or rifles. There
were no incidents in 2012
involving crossbows.
Michigan hunting inci-
dent statistics for the last six
years are:
2012: 15 incidents with
one fatality
2011: 12 incidents with
five fatalities
2010: 14 incidents with
three fatalities
2009: 18 incidents with
two fatalities
2008: 22 incidents with
two fatalities
2007: 32 incidents with
two fatalities
There is no doubt that
hunter education saves lives
and reduces injuries, Turner
said. We pride ourselves on
operating a strong hunter
education program in
Michigan, and it is impor-
tant that anyone considering
hunting as a recreational
pursuit complete a hunter
education class with one of
our dedicated volunteer
instructors who are the
backbone of our program.

Michigans hunter educa-
tion, go to www.michigan.

Quest facilitator
Some things are a good idea yet remain just outside of our grasp as we
hope to apply them. Just because something is true, doesnt mean that it is
any of our business to ensure that the truth of the idea is applied on every-
one around us. In some areas, we can find ourselves limited in our capacity
to pull off the perfect application of perfect stuff.
The whole idea of hate the sin, love the sinner seems to fit into this cate-
gory. I mean, really, who can pull this off other than God himself? Most of
the time all this turns out to be is a precursor for hateful exclusion based on
another persons behaviors or differences. Just as often, it is a platform for
comparative moral pride since the sin you could/should hate in me isnt as
obvious or detestable as I judge the sin in you to be.
Can we really love the sinner when we start that love with name call-
ing?
Who wants to be called a sinner?
Who is open to receiving love from someone who would label them like
that
Isnt it kind of a flawed phrase so far as you or I are able to pull it off?
If youll check the record (the Bible), Jesus didnt seem to run around talk-
ing like this. He hated the religious pretense, for sure, but other than that He
seemed to just love people. The tone and context of His message wasnt
focused on the sin which we want to hate. Jesus was much more invitational
for people to come into Him and His Kingdom than worried about the sin
nature. He called hearts into the Kingdom, knowing the minds and choices
would follow the commitment of the heart.
I believe in absolute Truth. I also believe God can take care of the revela-
tion of Truth in the hearts of people much better than I can. Since Hes good
at revelation and Im not, Im left only with love the person as a rallying
cry. Hell help the sinner work their stuff out and that includes me so Ill
need graceful friends for the sin they see in me. Hopefully, they wont call
me names over my junk when its sin before I recognize it as such.
Thoughts on...Hate the What and Love the Who?
What things are a good idea yet remain outside your grasp as you hope to apply them?

THURSDAY: Philippians 3:12-14 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 12 Not that I have already
obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which
also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of
it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
FRIDAY: Luke 9:62 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 62 But Jesus said to him, No one, after put-
ting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
SATURDAY: Hebrews 4:9-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for
the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works,
as God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall,
through following the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active
and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of
both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
SUNDAY: Matthew 4:18-20 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 18 Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea
of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a
net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 And He said to them, Follow Me, and I will make
you fishers of men. 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
MONDAY: Jude 20-23 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up
on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting
anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on some, who
are doubting; 23 save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear,
hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.
TUESDAY: Luke 6:27-32 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 27 But I say to you who hear, love your
enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat
you. 29 Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your
coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you, and who-
ever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back. 31 Treat others the same way you want
them to treat you. 32 If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners
love those who love them.

Elegance, natural beauty and peaceful living. This gor-
geously appointed custom home located just a few miles
from Vanderbilt is situated on spectacular 10 acre natural
setting, teeming with wildlife, scenic woodlands and a
wonderful sense of tranquility.
This three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home features
approximately 3,200 square feet of meticulously appoint-
ed living space. Upon entering through the entry off the
covered front porch, a grand stairway and open formal
dining and kitchen area extend from the foyer. As with
most of the interior spaces, wood tongue and groove
ceilings provide inviting warmth to this area, compli-
mented by the absolutely stunning Maple hardwood
flooring. The kitchen is spacious, extremely functional
and expertly appointed.
Among the many highlights of this home are a huge
great room area with stone fireplace, custom bar and
wood tongue and groove cathedral ceiling. The upper
level is dedicated to the luxurious master suite, with a
master bath worthy of the finest resorts - complete with
jetted tub, walk-in shower and even a sauna! The
attached garage features an adjoining workshop with
built in cabinetry and plenty of space to accommodate
virtually any hobby or craft.
Outdoors, views of the 10 acre wooded property can
be enjoyed from a huge deck that extends across the
back of the home. While the home offers lots of interior
storage space, there is a separate 24 x 24 outbuilding
that can be utilized for even more storage. A convenient
carport in front of the attached garage offers wonderful
vehicle protection from the elements.

The neighborhood in which you
live will heavily dictate your whole
way of lifethings like walking to a
nearby park with your kids, knowing
your kids are attending good
schools, feeling safe when your chil-
dren play outdoors, being close to
restaurants and shopping, enjoying
a short commute, and knowing your
home will appreciate at a healthy
rate.
Crime statistics
No one wants to live in a neigh-
borhood where break-ins and bur-
glary are the norm. There are web
sites that can provide you with sta-
tistics on crime and other informa-
tion pertinent to your search.
In addition to school information,
Homestore lets you enter a city or
zip code and provides you with
crime data for the area you choose.
It also compares crime statistics
with other cities (such as the city
from which you are moving).
In researching a neighborhood,
you must first determine your area.
The suburbs may have lower crime
statistics, but may be farther from
your work. Cities may have more
crime, but may have other qualities
that you consider more attractive,
such as convenience and cultural
activities.
Use the following tips to help you
learn about crime statistics in a
neighborhood:
Talk to neighbors.
Take note if there are bars on the
windows and doors of homes.
Talk to the police or sheriffs
department.
Check for gang graffiti on walls
and walkways.
Keep in mind that if youre look-
ing in-town, you may not be able to
get away from everything you con-
sider unappealing (such as noise
and traffic).
Keep your family in mind
A home isnt just an investment
when you have a family to think of.
Youll need to consider more than
just the number of bedrooms or
whether it has an attached garage.
Youll need to consider the com-
munity first and foremost. Do you
want schools that are in walking dis-
tance? Do you want to be close to
your place of employment? Do you
want to be close to shopping,
restaurants, and other services?
Youll also want to research prop-
erty values before you find a home
in the neighborhood that you like;
property values reflect a communi-
tys overall health.
And when you do your research,
find out what houses sell for now
versus a decade ago, five years ago,
and three years ago. Also, find out
how much property taxes have gone
up.
