Athletes are listed alphabetically:
LALO GARCIA, Shelby football
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound junior quarterback was a running and passing threat for Shelby on Friday (Sept. 23), as the Tigers snapped their program’s 21-game losing streak with a 22-16 overtime victory at Hesperia. Garcia rushed 22 times for 105 yards and two touchdowns, plus he completed 8 of 9 passes for 102 yards and another score.
NAVEA GAUTHIER, Shelby volleyball
The 6-foot-2 sophomore outside hitter reached 1,000 career kills during the Tigers’ sweep of visiting Ravenna on Tuesday (Sept. 20). Gauthier finished the night with 23 kills, 12 digs and four aces as Shelby defeated Ravenna, 25-19, 25-17, 25-16, in a West Michigan Conference Rivers Division matchup. That night, Shelby and Ravenna worked together for a suicide awareness campaign and the teams posed for a group photo together wearing special T-shirts for the cause.
MACKENZIE GOUDREAU, Montague golf
The junior broke her own school record by shooting a 3-over 75 as the Wildcats won their third straight Greater Muskegon Athletic Association tournament title Wednesday (Sept. 21) at Stonegate Golf Club in Twin Lake. Goudreau earned medalist honors and her team shot a season-low score of 361. She broke the record she had set last September at Old Channel Trail, where she carded a 77. Goudreau is a two-time all-state recipient. Montague is seeking a third-straight Division 4 state title.`
SPENCER HOLMES, Ludington soccer
The junior had a big week for the Orioles, who continued to roll and picked up their seventh straight win in an impressive 3-0 win at Allendale Saturday. In that game, Holmes netted a pair of first-half goals to put Ludington in a good position. Two days earlier, in a 3-0 victory at Oakridge, Holmes scored a goal and notched an assist. Ludington enters this week with a 13-1-1 week and No. 13 ranking in the Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Association Division 2 poll.
TREVER JONES, Oakridge football
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior has been workhorse for the Eagles as their No. 1 running back. In a 36-8 home win over Fremont (Sept. 23), Jones ran 24 times for a game-high 216 yards and four touchdowns, good for 9.0 yards per carry. He scored TDs on runs of 1, 37, 52 and 39 yards. It was the second-straight 200-yard game for Jones, who went for 227 yards and two TDs on 36 carries in a home victory over Ludington on Sept. 16.
ANASTASIA TREVINO, Montague volleyball
The 5-foot-10 middle hitter/outside hitter enjoyed a productive week for the Wildcats, who defeated rival Whitehall on Tuesday (Sept. 20) and won two of three matches in their home invite on Saturday (Sept. 24). In the win over Whitehall, Trevino had 11 kills and two blocks. During Saturday’s Montague Invite, the Wildcats lost a tight match against Spring Lake and rolled past Holton and Pentwater.
