Athletes are listed alphabetically:
GAVIN CRANER, Whitehall wrestling
The junior has been an absolute beast on the mat for the Vikings this season after finishing as a state runner-up with Belding last year. In Saturday’s Division 3 individual wrestling district at Whitehall, Craner made quick work of his three opponents with pinfalls in 55 seconds, 1:38, and 1:05. In the finals, he defeated Orchard View’s Mason Tuttle to improve his season record to 44-0. In last Wednesday’s team district at Whitehall, Craner recorded both of his victories by pinfall as well.
MATTISEN CROWLEY, Ravenna basketball
The 5-foot-10 junior center helped the Bulldogs win a couple of games last week. Crowley scored 10 in Ravenna’s 32-21 home victory over North Muskegon in WMC Rivers play on Thursday. On Friday, she scored seven in a 45-13 WMC Rivers road win over Hesperia. Crowley began last week with a six-point effort in a 50-26 Rivers road loss to a tough Mason County Central squad.
ADAM DUGENER, North Muskegon basketball
The 6-foot sophomore rose to the challenge in North Muskegon’s big 62-54 nonleague road win over a perennially tough Grand Rapids Covenant Christian squad. Dugener scored a game-high 26 points in helping to keep the Norsemen unbeaten on the season at 18-0 as of that victory. In Thursday’s 74-32 win at Hesperia in WMC Rivers action, Dugener totaled 12 points, five rebounds, and three assists.
ADDI HOVEY, Hart basketball
The 5-foot-11 junior utility player, who is also a Division I-level recruit for track and field, had a big week in leading Hart to a couple of impressive wins. In last Tuesday’s 55-37 victory at North Muskegon, Hovey nearly notched a triple-double with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and eight steals. In Friday’s 44-36 key WMC Rivers win at Mason County Central, she had a game-high 16 points and five rebounds.
ZANE MCCABE, Mason County Central wrestling
The Spartans senior placed third in the 132-pound weight class of Saturday’s Division 3 individual wrestling district at Hart, qualifying him for this week’s individual regional. Notably, his 8-1 victory over Beaverton’s Landon Terrell which punched his ticket to the regional was the 150th of McCabe’s career. He is 38-9 on the season entering this week.
ADDISON PRANGER, Montague basketball
The 5-foot-8 junior combo guard delivered a couple of strong performances last week as the Wildcats split games against solid competition. In last Tuesday’s 55-45 loss to WMC Lakes-leading Fremont, Pranger scored a game-high 19 points. In Friday’s 47-27 victory over visiting North Muskegon, Pranger led all scorers with 15 points.
