Whitehall’s girls basketball team is coming off an up-and-down 2022-23 season, one highlighted by the Vikings capturing a Division 2 district championship.
Whitehall opens its season tonight (Dec. 5) with a long trip for a nonleague game at Cadillac. On Thursday, Whitehall hosts arch-rival Montague.
The Vikings are playing and working for a cause greater than their own. They have veterans in mind.
Representatives of Whitehall’s girl varsity basketball team visited with CatchMark SportsNet Podcast host Scott DeCamp Monday night for a discussion on various topics, many of them centering around those who have sacrificed and served for our country. Senior Taylor Ottinger, junior Lianne Fagan, and assistant coach Emily MacArthur repped the Vikings well.
Thursday’s Whitehall-Montague game will be recognized as Veterans Appreciation Night. On the 82nd anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, Whitehall will honor veterans from various service branches of the United States Armed Forces with the help of a partnership with White Lake VFW Post 3256.
In recent months, Ottinger and Fagan have spearheaded a fund-raising effort called “Legacy Project,” which also honors veterans.
