GH boys team hoping to ‘put the pieces together’ in 2017-18

BY Josh VanDyke jvandyke@grandhaventribune.com After claiming a share of the O-K Red Conference title during the 2015-16 season and adding a 15-win season last winter, the excitement surrounding the Grand Haven boys basketball program has grown exponentially in just a few years. In fact, third-year head coach Greg Immink had a difficult time trimming the varsity roster down to a reasonable number this preseason, something that he sees as a positive sign for the future. “We had about 22 kids come out for tryouts this year, which is higher than it’s been since I’ve been here,” he said. “It made tryouts pretty intense for a few days, but it also shows you that the kids at this school and the community at large care about basketball and that’s only going to continue to create a culture that supports growth for our program.” The Buccaneers will need to grow rapidly in both experience and height this season, as the team lost four senior starters in Zac Holman (6-foot-4), Ross Koella (6-7), Drew VanAndel (6-5) and Clay Landsman (6-2).

That is the matter in Trojan country, where the Fruitport girls basketball team is staring down an interesting season replacing the likes of Iyana Brown, Emily Winicki and Katie Veihl, all while taking on their second run through the O-K Black Conference. With a few promising young pieces and the know-how of head coach Bob German the Trojans are looking to build into the future with a successful season this year. WHO’S BACK Returning from last year’s 8-13 team are seniors Isabelle Raven and Jaydie Hanks along with junior Kailey Carmean. Raven and Hanks maintained starting roles throughout the season, while Carmean was pulled up from junior varsity midway through the year and eventually worked into a starting job. All three are going to have to get used to a much larger role on the floor. “What happens sometimes when you have a girl like Iyana is everything starts to happen through her,” German said.  “I think we ...
