Eagles basketball shows strength

Schoolcraft’s Ty Rykse makes a difficult shot.

By Jordon Buell

The Schoolcraft boys varsity basketball team has proven itself this season. It’s in first place in league play with a record of 13-1 and a record of 16-2 overall.

Coach Randy Small, who earned his 400th win as a head coach in a win over Delton-Kellogg earlier in the year, is leading the team to the playoffs on a 14-game winning streak.

The team went 6-0 in February with wins against Delton-Kellogg, Constantine, Hackett Catholic Prep, Kalamazoo Christian, Fennville, Parchment and Three Rivers. Almost all games were won by double digits, some by 20 points or more.

Senior Tyler Degroote has been a jack of all trades this season, getting dunks on fast breaks and blocks on defense.

Senior Ty Rykse has been a sharpshooter, knocking down 3-pointers with ease and getting steals on the defensive end. Juniors Shane Ryske and Beau Onken have displayed sharp shooting talents alongside sophomore Tucker Walther as well.

The Eagles play their last game of the season home against Portage Northern on March 3 at 7 p.m.
