State-ranked Wayland downs Hawkeyes

WAYLAND, Mich. – On Tuesday the Hamilton boys basketball team took on Wayland Union in a non-conference showdown. Wayland was able to continue their success with a 65-50 win, well the Hawkeyes dropped to 9-5 on the season. After a strong start Hamilton has ran into a tough stretch in the season, where they have lost three of their last four games.

“We’ve played some pretty good opponents, obviously Wayland is good, Wayland is state championship good, and they made a deep run with basically this same squad last year,” Coach Haverdink said.

Wayland was led by Lacey James, who scored 24 and grabbed 11 boards. James was formally committed to Detroit Mercy before his scholarship was pulled due to medical reasons. Senior Brady Mudd led Hamilton in scoring with 12, well Grant Wolfram followed with nine.

Hamilton’s next game will be this Friday against Zeeland West, this will be the second time the two teams face with the Hawkeyes winning the first one.

“We just need to play hard, and play as a team, figure it out and have some more fun,” Grant Wolfram said.
