GAYLORD – The key to
winning any athletic compe-
tition is to play to your
The Gaylord High School
girls basketball team did
enough of that Monday night
in posting a 45-31 Big North
Conference victory over
The win lifted the Blue
Devils to 6-2 overall, 4-0
league. They remain alone in
first place. Petoskey slipped
to 1-8, 1-4. The Blue Devils
play host to Sault Ste. Marie,
6-3, today in a non-league
game. The Sault handed
Gaylord a 55-52 loss a week
ago. Gaylord’s only other loss
came to St. Ignace in the sea-
son-opener. The Saints, who
last year won the Class D
state championship, are
ranked fourth in Class C.
Monday’s win was particu-
larly important for Gaylord
because it came just three
days after the Blue Devils
knocked off Cadillac, 52-44.
It was the Vikings’ first league
loss and the win gave
Gaylord sole possession of
first place in the conference.
“I told the girls, (Petoskey)
was a trap game,” Gaylord
coach Frank Hamilla said.
“You come off a big win,
(Petoskey’s) looking to make
a statement, and we had a lit-
tle letdown.
“But give Petoskey credit.
Those girls did what they
wanted to and they kept it
close for three quarters and
we get in the fourth quarter
and we made some plays at
the end.
“I told (my players) that we
have a bulls-eye on our back
and we’re going to have to
step up every game. The
ball’s in our court right now
as long as we can take control
of it. And we’ll go from there.
“But our league is so bal-
anced, that’s what’s so scary.
… There really haven’t been
any blowouts in the league
this year.”
It did indeed get a little
scary from Gaylord’s stand-
point as the Northmen, who
have now lost six straight
starts, hung in and were
within two possessions early
in the fourth quarter.
Gaylord’s lead bounced
from 5-13 points throughout
the middle two quarters, but
less than a minute into the
fourth, the Northmen drew
to within six, 30-24, and had
seized momentum.
After Hamilla called a
timeout, the Blue Devils went
on an 11-0 spurt to increase
their advantage to 17 – their
largest lead of the night to
that point.
The key? Getting back to
what they do best, scoring in
transition. And the key to
that? Playing solid defense.
“I was a little concerned
with pressing going full court
in the fourth quarter with
some of our girls in foul trou-
ble, but we finally went to
that 2-2-1 press and we got
some turnovers off of it and
got our transition game
going a little bit better too,”
Hamilla said. “We’ve got to
get our transition game going
to be a good basketball team,
and at times we did, but we
need to get into it more.”
Sydney Kassuba started
Gaylord’s game-clinching
surge when she scored inside
off a nice drive-and-dish
from Maddy Hamilla.
Kassuba was fouled on the
bucket and she converted the
free throw, and just like that,
the Blue Devil lead was back
to nine, 33-24.
Brandi Wagner then scored
on a drive, Lauren Hintz and
Lindsey Zaremba both nailed
a pair of free throws, and
Zaremba finished the surge
with a steal-and-layup. When
the dust settled, the Blue
Devils were up, 41-24, with
just under three minutes left.
Petoskey committed four
turnovers and missed two
field goal attempts during
the decisive surge.
“We were feeling pretty
good,” Petoskey coach Adam
Dobrowolski said of his
team’s mindset when it drew
to within six early in the
fourth. “We felt that we were
following the game plan
exactly how we wanted to fol-
low it. … That (run) kind of
took the wind out of our sails
a little bit. They got a couple
easy ones, a couple
turnovers, a couple foul calls
went against us, and sudden-
ly the lead balloons like that.
“When you’re playing from
behind like that and the
other team regains the
momentum, there’s not
much you can do.”
Maddy Hamilla led the
Blue Devils with 12 points,
while Kassuba added 10.
Kassuba and Sydney
Gooding shared the team
lead in rebounds with five
Petoskey’s Kati Lewis hit
four 3-pointers en route to a
game-high 14 points. Asia
Abram-Craig grabbed seven
rebounds for the Northmen,
who play host to Cadillac in
the opening game of a girls-
boys varsity doubleheader on
The Petoskey High School
Athletic Hall of Fame Class of
2014 will be inducted at half-
time of the boys game.
Lewis hit back-to-back 3-
pointers and then converted
a short jumper late in the
third quarter to get Petoskey
back in the game. The
Northmen trailed by 13, 28-
15, with under four minutes
left in the third, but Lewis’
eight straight points drew the
Northmen to within five, 28-
23, with under a minute to
play in the third.
And while Petoskey lost the
game, Dobrowolski said
there are plenty of encourag-
ing signs. That fact that his
team hung in and clawed
back to within five points late
in the third quarter among
“We were sharing the ball
well, we were moving the ball
well, we were patient so I’m
very pleased with the way
that our offense was mov-
ing,” he said. “If you saw us a
couple of weeks ago, we
weren’t moving the ball that
way. We were turning the ball
over more than we were
tonight. I think that’s a posi-
tive step in the right direc-
“A lot of it is finding what
people’s roles are on the
court, finding what combina-
tions work best together. We
want to continue to get bet-
ter and be playing our best
basketball in February and I
think if we continue to do
what we’ve done the past
couple of weeks, we’ll get

GAYLORD – The Gaylord
freshmen girls pulled out a
tough one at home against a
very good Cadillac team on
Friday, Jan. 17, winning by
the narrowest of margins in
overtime, 49-48.
Skyler Wickert waxed the
nets for 14 points to lead the
way for the young Blue
Devils and newfound point
guard Katelyn Putnam pro-
duced an outstanding effort
and floor game, notching 11
points. Kendyl Jarski added
some jolt to the attack as
well, scoring 12.
“The whole team played
great; I am very proud of
their hard work and dedica-
tion,” said Gaylord coach
Jessi Matelski. “The team

GAYLORD – The St. Mary
girls of coach Dan Smith
remained unbeaten in the Ski
Valley with a pair of work-
manlike victories last week.
On Wednesday, Jan. 15, the
Snowbirds visited
Mancelona and earned a sur-
prisingly tough 40-31 deci-
sion over the scrappy Lady
Ironmen of coach Ben
Tarbutton. On Friday, Jan. 17,
St. Mary recorded a 65-15
decision over Inland Lakes.
At the halfway mark of the
season, the fifth-ranked
Snowbirds own a 9-1 record
overall and 7-0 in the Ski
In the win at Mancelona, it
was long-armed sophomore
forward Bekah Myler leading
the way with 12 points. She
was the only Snowbird player
to reach double digits on a
night when Mancelona
slowed the tempo of the
game down and did every-
thing in its power to keep the
Snowbirds from getting tran-
sition points in bunches.
Coach Tarbutton, who
starred on the hardwood for
the St. Mary boys in the early
2000s, slowed the pace of the
game down and gave his
team a chance to be compet-
itive. It’s a credit to Tarbutton
and to the Lady Ironmen that
they could stay within 10
points of the high-powered,
state-ranked Snowbirds.
Mancelona came into this
season having lost 41 straight
games. Even with a roster
featuring two freshmen
starters, the Lady Ironmen
already have three wins this
season and the girls are play-
ing everyone tough.
Myler was challenged on
virtually every shot she took
on this night. She hit on 6-of-
8 from the line. Sweet-shoot-
ing senior guard Kari
Borowiak tallied nine points
with a trey. Gabby Schultz
and McKenna Roberts each
rang up six points and Caylee
Lawnichak landed four
through the iron.
Mancelona trailed 32-18
after three quarters but
outscoring the visiting
Snowbirds 13-8 in the fourth
quarter to trim the St. Mary
lead to single digits at the
final buzzer. In that sense, it
was a great moral victory for
the young Lady Ironmen.
Mancelona freshman cen-
ter Eileene Naniseni led all
scorers in the game with 14
points. “Electric” Eileene
generated the juice for the
Ironmen offense as she’s
been doing all season. Senior
guard Emily Nixon made the
twine twitch to the tune of
seven points while spitfire
senior guard Tyra Oetting tal-
lied five.
Mancelona (3-5, 2-4)
played at Inland Lakes on
Wednesday, Jan. 22. The Lady
Ironmen are home against
Bellaire this Friday, Jan. 24.
On Monday, Jan. 27, they are
slated to play at Ellsworth.
St. Mary (9-1, 7-0) played
host to league foe Central
Lake on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
On Friday, Jan. 24, the
Snowbirds are home against
Forest Area with the varsity
game starting at 6 p.m. since
Forest Area has no JV team.
On Tuesday, Jan. 28, St.
Mary has the much-antici-
pated rematch with perenni-
al cross-county foe
Johannesburg-Lewiston at
the court of the Cardinals. It
is also the annual Rivals Rally
for the Cure contest.

The Mancelona girls of

GAYLORD – The resilient,
determined Gaylord girls of
coach Frank Hamilla turned
in one of their best perform-
ances of the season on
Friday, Jan. 17, with a 52-44
decision over talented Big
North rival Cadillac.
Gaylord, seeking its first-
ever Big North champi-
onship, pushed its record to
5-2 overall and 4-0 in the
conference while handing
Cadillac its first loss. The Blue
Devils took sole possession
of first place in the league
standings with the win.
It was the sparkling play of
super sophomore Brandi
Wagner and sizzling senior
Maddie Hamilla leading the
way once again as they
drained the nets for 15 points
apiece. Lauren Hintz and
Lindsey Zaremba also added
zip to the offense, hitting for
six points each.
The hard-fought, defensive
showdown was tied at 30
after three quarters before
the Blue Devils pulled away,
outscoring the visitors 22-14
over the final eight minutes.
The Blue Devils made 13-of-
18 from the charity stripe in
the quarter. For the game,
Gaylord was an excellent 18-
of-24 from the line.
“We buckled down in the
fourth quarter on the defen-
sive end and were able to
convert on the other end.”
Hamilla said. “We converted
our free throws in the fourth
quarter and did a good job
from the line all game long.
“I thought we did a great
job of communicating
together on the defensive
end,” he added. “We
switched when we had to and
got defenders through
screens. I don't think they got
too many open looks, and
with their height advantage
we did a nice job of doubling
the post from the weak side
and rotating positions.”
The opportunistic
Zaremba was big into piracy
once again, notching four
steals to go with four assists
and four boards. Wagner also
had four assists and four
boards. Hintz hauled in six
rebounds while Maddie and
Joslyn Rider each grabbed
Abbey Fuller and Jenna
Erway fired in 10 points each
for Cadillac.
The Gaylord JV girls of
coach Shelly Curtis also had a
big night, securing a 44-37
victory over the Vikings.
Casey Korte had the C-Ko
flowing once again as she
added to her glowing laurels
this season with another
dominating performance,
scoring 20 with 11 boards for
a double-double. Korte also
covered the floor like a fresh
coat of wax, making eight
Ariveara Piehl brought her
usual burst of energy off the
bench while playing what
coach Curtis said was her
best game of the season,
scoring 10 points. Adrienne
Edwards tallied five and
turned up the lever on the
pressure defense to suffoca-
tion mode.
ON TUESDAY, Jan. 14, the
Blue Devils went north of the
bridge to take on talented
Sault Ste. Marie and suffered
a tight 55-52 loss.
It was a close game all the
way through. The Blue Devils
led 14-12 after one quarter
but trailed 28-23 at the half.
They stormed back in the
third quarter to trim the
deficit to a single point, 38-
37, but the Soo closed
stronger, outscoring Gaylord
17-15 to earn the win.
Lindsey Zaremba and
Lauren Hintz paced a bal-
anced scoring night with 12
points each and Brandi
Wagner waxed the twine for
11. Maddie Hamilla added
eight. Sydney Kassuba had a
productive contest, record-
ing seven rebounds and six
assists. Hintz had four
“I thought both teams were
evenly matched, the differ-
ence ending up being a half-
court shot at the end of the
first quarter by Jessica
Parmer from the Soo,”
Hamilla reported. “I liked
that we got some good bal-
anced scoring tonight. The
girls fought to the end, which
shows great character. We
had a chance to tie it at the
end and it came up a little
Gaylord gets another crack
at the Sault on the home floor
on Thursday, Jan. 23.
The Gaylord JV had a real
barnburner at the Sault, bat-
tling tooth-and-nail and
finally finding a way to take a
tense 36-35 victory.
Casey “C-Ko” Korte canned
13 to pace the young Blue
Devil. Mallory Marshall
made the nets dance to the
tune of nine points and
Maddy Sides struck for six
Gaylord (6-2, 5-0) have
their anticipated rematch at
home against Sault Ste.

Gaylord Gators participated
in a unique swim meet in
Sault Ste. Marie on Saturday
Jan. 18. The event was called
a pentathlon because each
swimmer was required to
swim in 5 separate events.
Trophies were awarded in
each age bracket for the
fastest combined times.
Because of time, distance
and weather, the Gators
competed with one of the
smallest teams in the field.
Despite this fact, the team
was awarded two first place
trophies and a second in the
nine divisions they compet-
ed in.
Once again, Matthew
Markarewicz led the boys
team by sweeping all five
events and walking away
with the first place trophy in
the boys 15-18 age group.
In the most exciting com-
petition of the day, Allie
Rutkowski won four of the
five events, besting the sec-
ond place finisher by the slim
margin of 3.07 seconds to fin-
ish in first in the 15-18 age
group to lead the girls team.
Cameron Martella finished
first in the backstroke, sec-
ond in the breaststroke and
swam well enough in the
other three events to walk
away with second place
hardware in the girls 11-12
age group. Katie Rutkowski
was awarded a second place
medal in the 15-18 butterfly
and Rebecca Reynolds got
hers for a third place finish in
the 9-10 breaststroke.
Several young up-and-
comers were awarded rib-
bons for their efforts includ-
ing Maizy James, Anna
Erickson, Halle Busch, Bailey
Bennett, Ryne Bennett,
Samuel Defeyter, Shellby
Dreffs, Suzi Fousek, Andrew
Markarewicz, and Fayth
Gaylord Gators vie in unique meet

They say it isn’t so much
about what happens to you,
but how you respond to it.
The Cheboygan High
School girls basketball
responded, in a big way, on
Monday, topping Alpena, 50-
42, in a non-league game on
the road.
The win came three nights
after the Chiefs dropped a
61-36 Straits Area Conference
game to St. Ignace, which is
ranked fourth in Class C after
winning the Class D state
championship last season.
“That’s a big win on the
road,” said Cheboygan coach
Jason Purcell, whose team is
scheduled to go to East
Jordan for a non-leaguer on
Wednesday and to Newberry
for a SAC game on Friday.
“One of the things we always
talk about with our kids is if
you want to win champi-
onships, whether it’s a league
or a district or whatever, you
have to be able to win on the
“It’s a good start to the
week for us, and a good
bounce-back win.”
Brooke Hancock scored 17
points and Macey
Charboneau added 10 points
and 14 rebounds to lead the
Chiefs, who improved to 4-5.
Bridget Blaskowski added six
points and six assists, and
Carolyn Clark had five points
and eight rebounds.
Adrianna Hatch scored 17
points for the Wildcats, 1-6,
who defeated Petoskey, 34-
32, for their first win of the
season three nights earlier.
The Chiefs built a 30-17
halftime lead, but the
Wildcats trimmed their
deficit to three, 37-34, after
three quarters. Blaskowski
scored off a sideline
inbounds play to open the
fourth quarter and up
Cheboygan’s lead to five, 39-
34, and Alpena never got
closer the rest of the way. The
Chiefs made 18 of their 30
free throw attempts on the
Ashley Hempenstall scored
11 points and grabbed six
rebounds to lead the Chiefs
in their loss to St. Ignace,
which outscored the Chiefs
19-7 in the second quarter for
a 37-17 halftime lead.
Hancock added nine
points, and Charboneau fin-
ished with six rebounds.

out-shooting all their oppo-
nents last week the Bay Area
Reps dropped two out of
three games, all on the road,
to fall to 4-10 on the season.
The Reps opened their
road trip at Alpena on
Wednesday, Jan. 8, and after
a scoreless first period the
Wildcats found the back of
the net twice in the second
period to lead 2-0 heading
into the final stanza. The
Reps failed to capitalize on
several power-play attempts
in the game as Alpena goalie
Jesse Boilore was spectacu-
lar in net, thwarting every
shot the Reps sent his way.
Alpena added a short-
handed goal 1:15 into the
third period to make the
final score 3-0 in favor of the
The Reps traveled to
Petoskey on Friday, Jan. 10,
to do battle with the
Northmen and came away
with a dominating 2-0 victo-
ry. Zach Bargy zoomed one
home to put the Reps on the
board 42 seconds into the
game with assist from Ryan
Quinlan and Gavin Uitvlugt.
Andrew Dzierwa drilled a
whistler to light the lamp
with 25 seconds left in the
first with Josh Hill drawing
an assist as the Reps lead 2-0
after one period. Jay Jones
made the lead hold up as he
stopped all seven shots the
Northmen sent his way.
On Saturday, Bay Area
traveled to Midland to face
the Tri-Valley Titans, a team
they beat at home 5-1 earlier
in the season. After trailing
1-0 for most of the game,
Carson Altonen tied the
score 1-1 with 3:42 left in the
third period. John VanRaalte
and Trevor Apsey earned
assists on the Altonen goal.
But the Titans scored off a
face off with 1:18 to go to
send the Reps home with a
disappointing 2-1 loss.
The Reps returned to their
home ice to face University
of Liggett on Friday, Jan. 15,
and Utica Eisenhower on
Saturday, Jan. 16. The Reps
dropped a tough 3-1 deci-
sion to Liggett and then fell
5-1 to the Eisenhower Eagles
as their record slipped to 4-
12 for the season.

Chiefs double up Big Rapids, snap losing skid
CHEBOYGAN – The streak
is over. Time to start another
one. This one on the good
Austin Christie and Adam
Jeannotte scored two goals
apiece and Kaleb Wood
stopped 21 shots as the
Cheboygan High School
hockey team snapped its
seven-game losing streak
with a 6-3 victory over Big
Rapids Saturday at Ralph G.
Cantile Arena.
The Chiefs, who had not
won since Dec. 13 – a 36-day
stretch – improved to 6-10.
They were scheduled to play
back-to-back home games
beginning Wednesday with
the Bay Area Reps and con-
cluding on Thursday with
“It’s going to make every-
body feel a little bit better,”
Cheboygan coach Craig Coxe
said of Saturday’s win. “We’ve
still got a long road ahead of
us. Our goal now is to get
back to .500 and end the sea-
son above .500. There’s still a
lot of hockey to go.”
The win came 10 days after
perhaps the most frustrating
loss in the Chiefs’ seven-
game skid, a 3-2 setback to a
Petoskey team that
Cheboygan had beaten in the
season-opener. The Chiefs
outshot the Northmen, 42-
26, in that 3-2 loss and it was
one of several times during
the five-week stretch that
Cheboygan could legitimate-
ly claim that it has outplayed
an opponent, only to lose.
They outshot the
Cardinals, 33-24, on
Saturday, but the difference
this time around was that
they capitalized. Cheboygan
fell behind early, 1-0, but
scored three straight goals for
a 3-1 lead at the first inter-
mission. They increased their
advantage to 6-2 after two
“We played a great first
period,” Coxe said. “We out-
shot them 16-5 in the first
period. We just came out fly-
ing and played really well.”
Which was a concern, Coxe
said, because it had been 10
days since that loss to
Petoskey. On one hand, the
break gave the Chiefs, who at
one time had five players out
because of injury, a chance to
get healthy. On the other
hand, there was a chance
that some rust may have
accumulated on their game.
“I don’t like taking that
much time off between
games,” Coxe said. “You have
that many days without a
game, usually it’s tough,
especially in the first period,
to get back into game mode.
They did great. They came
out fresh and skated real
well. I was very, very
Dakota Bell and Nate
Stempky also scored for the
Chiefs, while Jeanotte and DJ
Sayers finished with two
assists apiece. Zach Schley,
Gavin Armstrong and
Christie each had an assist.
Northmen drop two
It was a tale of two losses
for the Petoskey High School
hockey team over the week-
end. On Friday, the
Northmen dropped a 5-0 Big
North Conference decision
to Cadillac, while on
Saturday, Petoskey squan-
dered a 2-1 third-period lead
in falling to the FNV Griffins.
FNV is a co-op program
between Freeland, Saginaw
Nouvel and Saginaw Valley
Lutheran high schools. The
Griffins, who defeated
Gaylord, 6-3, on Friday, left
Petoskey with a 12-5-0
The losses to Cadillc and
then FNV were the third and
fourth in a row for the
Northmen, who are 1-12-3
and were scheduled to enter-
tain Traverse City Central in a
Big North game on
Wednesday, Jan. 22, at Griffin
Arena. The Northmen then
go to Gaylord for a league
game on Friday, Jan. 24.
Petoskey is 0-3-2 in Big North
Bryndon Worden’s two
goals gave Petoskey a 2-1
lead entering the third period
against FNV. The Griffins
scored three consecutive
Cam Wilder scored mid-
way through the third to pull
Petoskey to within 4-3, but
the Northmen couldn’t get

FIFE LAKE – The host
Forest Area Warriors slowed
down the Mancelona boys
basketball team as the two
Ski Valley Conference teams
clashed on Thursday, Jan. 16.
But, slowing down
Mancelona (6-2 overall, 4-1
conference) wouldn’t be
enough, as the visiting
Ironmen celebrated a 47-37
victory and junior Brandon
Dingman scoring his 1,000th
point in the second quarter.
“Ever since I’ve had him as
a freshman, he’s taken a lot of
time to work on his shot,”
said Mancelona head coach
Rick Duerkson of Dingman.
“It shows. He’s a really good
Duerkson added it helps
that Dingman is far from one
dimensional and able to put
the ball on the floor, drive by
defenders and get to the rim.
“Teams have to respect
that,” the coach said. “Then,
he can just pull up for a
Dingman exploded against
Forest Area for 25 points, 5
rebounds, 2 assists and 2
steals to lead the Ironmen,
with Griffin Borst chipping in
13 points, 5 rebounds, 4
assists and 1 steal.
Forest Area seemingly tried
to slow the pace of the game.
Duerkson said his team,
which usually averages 50
shots or more a game, put up
just 35 attempts Thursday.
“And, I think they took
even less,” he added.
The two conference rivals
were knotted at 12-12 at the
end of the first quarter. But,
the Ironmen built a 23-14
lead at the half by holding
Forest Area to just a basket in
the second period.
“That was pretty much the
deciding quarter,” Duerkson
Other contributors for the
Ironmen on Thursday
included: Logan Borst with 4
points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist
and 3 steals; Justin Spires
with 3 points and 3 boards;
Jake Winstead with 2 points,
3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2
steals; and Derek Conway
with 4 rebounds.
Onaway 61
Mancelona 58
The visiting Ironmen had
their chance to topple SVC
rival Onaway from the ranks
of the undefeated in confer-
ence play Tuesday, Jan. 14,
but a missed shot with less
than 10 seconds in regulation
left Mancelona on the wrong
side of 61-58 final score.
Both Bellaire and Onaway
are still undefeated in the
SVC, as of action starting this
“They’re a good team,”
Duerkson said of the host
Cardinals. “They have a cou-
ple of good athletes. They’re
going to win some games.”
After an opening period
that found Mancelona train-
ing, 11-9, the Ironmen rallied
and outgunned the Cardinals
in the second quarter, 18-10,
to taking a 27-21 lead into the
locker room at halftime.
But, the second half was
dominated by the Cardinals,
who held a double-digit lead
at times.
“I really felt the difference
in the game was we were giv-
ing up second and third
shots,” Duerkson said.
Dingman paced the
Ironmen with a near double-
double of 31 points, 9
rebounds and 1 assist. Spires
added 10 points and 4
rebounds in the loss.
Also contributing for
Mancelona were: Griffin

MIDLAND – Petoskey-area
native Beverly Neville was
inducted into the Michigan
Amateur Softball Association
Hall of Fame on Saturday
during a ceremony at the H
Hotel in Midland.
Neville, formerly Beverly
Johnecheck and then
Sobleski, was a pioneer as a
player, coach and league and
MASA official from the early
1960s until the late ‘80s. She
was inducted under the
Meritorious Service category.
Among those also induct-
ed on Saturday was Lynda
Christensen of Boyne City,
who also went in under
Meritorious Service. Both
Neville and Christensen were
instrumental in bringing the
game to generations of girls
and young women in
Northern Michigan.
Neville was a standout
player in the Petoskey
Women’s Fastpitch League,
but that was just the tip of the
iceberg of her accomplish-
ments and contributions
throughout Emmet County.
She spearheaded the effort
to launch the North Emmet
Girls Fastpitch Pigtail League
along with the birth of
Pellston High School softball,
she served as a MASA com-
missioner and representa-
tive, and coached for some
15 years at virtually every
level from youth teams to
adult squads.
“It’s a very humbling type
of thing and I’m very hon-
ored,” Neville said. “So many
people have helped me along
the way.”
Scott Kelly, the MASA
District 21 commissioner,
credited Neville with foster-
ing the development of the
game for female in the area.
“Bev was a significant play-
er in the development of soft-
ball opportunities for
females at all levels,” Kelly
wrote in his nomination let-
ter to the Hall of Fame com-
mittee. “Through her efforts
in concert with Ed White,
Lynda Christensen and
countless others, softball
opportunities for women in
the area came from its
seedling roots of a men’s-
only sport in the 1940s, ‘50s
and ‘60s to a thriving
women’s sport in the ‘70s that
was then complemented
with development programs
in all schools and communi-
ties in the early-to-mid
“Those historic roots in
promoting equal opportuni-
ties are one of the reasons
our district has six female
fastpitch players already
inducted into the MASA Hall
of Fame.”
Neville, then Beverly
Johnecheck, was one of six
children – and the only girl –
in her family. They grew up
on a farm on Camp Daggett
Road where the resourceful
Johnecheck children spent
their summers playing sand-
lot ball.
Neville’s baptism in organ-
ized ball came in 1961 with
the Boyne City Merchants,
and she continued to play
competitively until 1987. She
was a member of numerous
championship teams,
including the ’62 Merchants
squad that captured the
Class D Women’s Fastpitch
State Championship.
She led the charge in form-
ing the Pellston Pigtail
League for girls in the late
‘60s, and she eventually
became the district women’s
and youth representative, a
post in which she served for
more than 15 years. She was
also a MASA commissioner
at large from 1972-85.

Two teams, two titles.
The wrestling teams repre-
senting Gaylord and
Petoskey high schools are
coming off tournament
championships – Gaylord at
Dexter, Petoskey in its home
gym – and both will be
among the field of 31 squads
expected to compete
Saturday in the annual
Northern Michigan
Championships at Gaylord
High School.
But first, for Gaylord, is a
Wednesday showdown with
West Branch Ogemaw
Heights. If the Blue Devils,
who entered the week 27-1 in
duals and ranked seventh in
Division II by Michigan
Grappler, beat the Falcons, it
will give Gaylord its seventh
consecutive Big North
Conference championship.
Gaylord entered the match
4-0 in league duals. Non-
league opponents
Whittemore-Prescott and
Onaway were also scheduled
to partake in the event, mak-
ing it a quad.
Two of Gaylord’s league
victories came a week ago in
a double-dual at Petoskey.
The Blue Devils cruised to a
46-9 win over Petoskey and a
58-12 victory over Alpena.
Six Blue Devils finished 5-0
Saturday in leading Gaylord
to a first-place finish in the
Dexter Invitational.
Gaylord won all five of its
meets in the dual-format
event. The Blue Devils
downed Trenton, 43-24, in
the championship match.
Dominic LaJoie (103
pounds), Trenton Lashuay
(112), Jon Martin (119), Seth
Lashuay (125), Tristan
Gregory (189) and Shane
Foster (215) were the six Blue
Devils who were unbeaten
throughout the tournament.
LaJoie, who is ranked
fourth in his weight class in
Division II by Michigan
Grappler, improved to 34-0
with his perfect day at
Gregory and Foster are
fourth and fifth, respectively,
at 189; while Martin (119)
and teammate Jeff Heinz
(140) received honorable
mention in their respective
weight classes.
Heinz, wrestling at both
135 and 140, led a group of
five Blue Devils who finished
4-1 at Dexter. Jacob Panosso
(130-135), Matt Kempher
(130), Matt Jenkins (145) and
Tristan Blanzy (140) were the
others. Gaylord’s Mike
Shyrock (285) and Forest
Madagame (171) each fin-
ished 3-2.
The Blue Devils opened
with a 43-21 win over Jackson
Lumen Christi, then beat
Ann Arbor Pioneer, 50-16;
Chelsea, 55-21; and Brighton
B, 73-0.
In sweeping Petoskey and
Alpena last week, LaJoie,
Trent Lashuay, Martin,
Kempher, Madagame,
Gregory and Foster each fin-
ished 2-0.
The Blue Devils and
Northmen split the night’s
two premier matches. LaJoie
defeated Petoskey’s Trevor
Giallombardo, who is ranked
seventh in Division II, on a
14-2 major decision. It was
the second time this season
that LaJoie has defeated the
Petoskey sophomore, and
Giallombardo became the
first of LaJoie’s matches to go
the distance.
Heinz dropped a 4-2 deci-
sion to Petoskey’s Nick
Strobel, who is ranked sev-
enth at 140.
The Northern Michigan
Championships are sched-
uled to begin at 10 a.m. on
Saturday at Gaylord High
Seven Northmen went
undefeated and another fin-
ished 4-1 Saturday as the
Northmen captured the
Petoskey Invitational.
Petoskey opened with a 63-
14 win over Traverse City St.
Francis, then downed
Roscommon, 54-18;
Manistee, 64-18; Rogers City,
51-27; and Benzie Central,
The Northmen are 16-2 in
duals. Petoskey was sched-
uled to wrestle a double-dual
at Traverse City West on
Wednesday. Traverse City
Central was also scheduled
to partake in the event.
Giallombardo, Gage Paul
(112), Scott Kibbe (119), Rob
Kibbe (130), Strobel, Cam
Plath (152) and Trevor
Denoyer (189) each finished
a perfect 5-0 in the tourna-
ment, while Mike Kibbe (125)
went 4-1.
“I am especially happy for
our seniors who have started
since their freshman year –
Mike Kibbe, Strobel, Plath
and Denoyer,” Petoskey
coach Nate Gross said. “I
believe we went 0-5 in the
tournament when they were
“It is a great way to end
their home careers at
Petoskey High School. They
have put in the time, and it
has paid dividends. I hope
our younger wrestlers will
continue doing even more
work in hopes of greater
“Don Dickmann (leg-
endary Petoskey cross coun-
try/track coach) used to talk
about ‘putting money in the
bank.’ I try to echo that with
my wrestlers, and they are
getting the message.”
Petoskey’s wins against St.
Francis came from
Giallombardo, Paul, Scott
Kibbe, Rob Kibbe, Austin
Linn (135), Marcus Groh
(160), Dakota Vieau (171),
Denoyer and Drew Wilson
(215). Strobel earned the
team wrestler of the meet
award after a 6-2 win over
state-ranked Matt Mawby.
Wilson was named
Petoskey’s wrestler of the
meet in the victory over
Roscommon. Giallombardo,
Paul, Scott Kibbe, Mike
Kibbe, Rob Kibbe, Strobel,
Plath, Denoyer and Jordan
Marihugh (285) also won
their respective matches.
Giallombardo was the
wrestler of the meet in the
victory over Manistee. Also
winning for the Northmen
were Paul, Scott Kibbe, Josh
Argetsinger (130), Linn,
Strobel, Zach Hoffman (145),
Plath, Vieau and Denoyer.
Giallombardo, Paul, Scott
Kibbe, Mike Kibbe, Rob
Kibbe, Strobel, Plath,
Denoyer and Marihugh were
winners against Rogers City.
Rob Kibbe earned the
wrestler of the meet award.
Hoffman was named
Petoskey’s wrestler of the
meet in the victory over
Benzie Central.
Giallombardo, Paul, Scott
Kibbe, Mike Kibbe, Strobel,
Hoffman, Plath, Groh and
Denoyer also won matches
for the Northmen.
Petoskey split its two Big
North home duals a week
ago, losing to Gaylord, 46-9,
and beating West Branch
Ogemaw Heights, 37-28.
Strobel defeated Jeff Heinz,
4-2, at 140 in Petoskey’s
match with Gaylord.
Hoffman (145) downed
Tristan Blanzy, 7-4; and Plath
(152) topped Matt Jenkins, 8-
3, for Petoskey’s other victo-
ries against the Blue Devils.
The Northmen and
Falcons split their 14 match-
es, but Ogemaw recorded
three pins to Petoskey’s one

Johannesburg-Lewiston boys
of coach Troy Huff bounced
back from the tough loss to
Bellaire two days before
before to earn a hard-fought
66-51 victory over Ski Valley
foe Central Lake on
Thursday, Jan. 16.
The Cardinals broke open
a close game in the third
quarter, pushing to a double-
digit lead on the scoreboard.
It was “Lights Out” Logan
Huff leading the way from
the backcourt once again
and bruising Brandon Huff
battling ferociously under
the boards. Both Huffs
earned a double-double.
Logan launched a team-
high 16 points through the
iron and served up more
sweet dishes than a Food
Network chef, earning an
eye-popping 11 assists in the
contest. Brandon earned a
blue-collar double-double,
banging his way to 13
rebounds while putting 12
points on the board.
Nate Fox fired in 14 points
and pulled down six boards
to help the cause and Chad
Garton churned out eight
points with a typically effec-
tive effort off the bench.
Coalton Huff contributed
to the win in ways that can’t
be measured on the stat
sheet. Coalton connected for
six points but, more impor-
tantly, he covered Central
Lake’s dangerous Will
Brockman like snow on an
evergreen, limiting
Brockman to just four points.
Coalton also generated four
ON TUESDAY, J-L dropped
a 52-39 decision to league-
leading Bellaire, which was
ranked third in Class D in the
latest AP poll. The game was
a lot closer than the 13-point
spread reveals, however. The
Cardinals trailed just 15-12
after the first quarter and
forced the Eagles to play a
half-court offense and battle
to create open looks at the

pit bull, as usual, while scor-
ing a team-high 11 points.
Logan Huff and Nate Fox
each found the bottom of the
net for seven points and Fox
grabbed five rebounds.
Coalton Huff scored six.
Spencer White waxed the
twine for four points and
turned in a strong defensive
effort off the bench.
Denny Hall led Bellaire
with 24 points.

Will Seldon scored 11
points to lead the hardwork-
ing Hornets and Conner
Kilpatrick added eight.
"If you were here the first
night (of the season), we
were gosh awful, but we're
making progress," Pellston
coach Larry Cassidy said
after Friday’s loss to Onaway.
"The key thing is you've got
to play 32 minutes. We played
16 (against Onaway), but I
told the kids I believe in
them, won't stop believing in
them, they've got to believe
in themselves."

Lady Vikes bedevil East Jordan, 42-36
GRAYLING – A stingy
defensive effort by the
Grayling girls varsity basket-
ball team bedeviled visiting
East Jordan, with the Vikings
holding on for a 42-38 win at
home over their Lake
Michigan Conference foe
Monday, Jan. 20.
The visiting Red Devils (1-6
overall, 0-2 conference) man-
aged just 24 points in the first
24 minutes of play combined
against the Lady Vikings,
which also struggled to score
at times. Grayling (4-6 over-
all, 2-4 conference) forged a
22-15 advantage at the half,
despite scoring only eight
points in the opening stanza.
The Lady Vikes again
struggled offensively in the
final eight minutes, being
held to nine points for the
period. But, Grayling had
ended the third quarter with
a 33-24 advantage and was
able to hold on for the win.
Samantha Denno powered
the Lady Vikes with a double-
double and solid all-round
performance that included
15 points, 11 rebounds, 1

quarter in their 52-49 loss to
visiting Charlevoix on Friday,

in each of the first three quar-
ters and trailed the Rayders
by just three points, 42-39,
ending into the fourth peri-
od. Both teams scored 10
points in the final eight min-
utes, leaving the Lady Vikes
still three points shy of their
LMC rival.

Athletics, after all, are part
of the educational process.
Petoskey High School boys
basketball coach Dennis
Starkey knew his team faced
a difficult test last week when
it had to play at Cadillac and
then at Alpena.
The Northmen emerged
with two losses – their first
two in the Big North
Conference – but they got an
almost immediate opportu-
nity to right the ship this
week when they were sched-
uled to play Big North foes
Gaylord on Tuesday and
Cadillac on Friday. Both
games are at home.
“That’ll be real interesting
to see how that goes,” Starkey
said. “I anticipate that we’ll
play a lot better than we did
last week. But we have to
show it on the court.”
The Northmen showed
plenty of fight both at
Cadillac and at Alpena. They
trailed 31-18 at halftime to
the Vikings and it was 41-28
heading into the fourth quar-
ter. The Northmen made a
late surge, but couldn’t get
over the hump and in the
end, dropped a 50-42 deci-
The Northmen held a 60-
57 lead at Alpena with just
over three minutes to play,
but were outscored 10-1
down the stretch. The
Northmen turned the ball
over on six of their final 12
“Playing on the road is
such a different situation
than what you have at
home,” Starkey said. “And we
learned a lot in the loss at
Cadillac on Tuesday. The
guys responded well because
we were ready to play against
Alpena and we gave our-
selves a chance to win.
“It’s a different mindset
playing on the road. It’s easy
to get yourself ready to play
at home. You have to work
hard to play well on the
The loss to Cadillac ended
a six-game Northmen win
streak. Petoskey entered the
week 6-3 overall and 3-2 in
the league, one of several
teams with two league losses.
Both Alpena and Cadillac
entered the league with one
conference loss apiece.
“Probably the two toughest
places to play in the league
were the games we played
last week,” Starkey said. “It’s a
long way before this league
race is settled. There are a lot
of good teams and every-
body’s going to have to play
on the road.”
Friday’s game with the
Vikings takes on added sig-
nificance because it is Hall of
Fame induction night at
Petoskey. Three Northmen
greats, Jerry Cosens, Bob
Doctor and Marty Hill, will
join the prestigious hall dur-
ing halftime of the boys varsi-
ty game. The girls varsity
game tips off at 6 p.m.
Parker Monley hit five 3-
pointers en route to 18 points
to lead the Northmen against
Alpena, while Andy Marwede
scored 16 to pace the
Aron Lee added 11 points
and seven assists for the
Northmen, while Joe LeBlanc
had 10 points and five assists,
and Monley grabbed six
Monley made five of his 11
3-point attempts. The
Northmen were 7-for-15
from beyond the arc.
Lee and Nick Mesnard
scored eight points apiece to
lead the Northmen against
Cadillac, while LeBlanc and
Evan Whitmore added seven
each. LeBlanc grabbed a
team-high six rebounds.
Andrew Emington scored
18 points and Jalen Brooks
added 17 to lead the Vikings.

GRAYLING – The Grayling
boys varsity basketball team
struggled to defend its home
floor Friday, Jan. 17, falling to
Lake Michigan Conference
foe Charlevoix in overtime,
Charlevoix (1-5 overall, 1-2
conference) looked to raid
the host Vikings early on, tak-
ing a 22-15 lead in the open-
ing quarter. The Rayders still
held the advantage at half-
time, but the Vikings had cut
the gap to just 29-26.
Momentum seemingly
continued its swing in favor
of Grayling (5-3 overall, 2-2
conference) in the third
quarter, with the Vikings
outscoring Charlevoix, 14-9,
to go up 40-38 entering the
final eight minutes.
But the Rayders were able
to force overtime by knotting
the game at 54-54 at the end
of regulation, and then
earned the win by outgun-
ning the Vikings by three in
the extra stanza.
“This was a very emotional
game for our team,” said
Grayling head coach Rich
Moffit. “We were under a
number of adverse situations
and our kids competed.
“We struggled defensively
to get stops in pressure situa-
tions,” he added. “Plus, we
turned it over during some
crucial times.”
A quartet of Vikings hit
double figures in the loss,
with Tyler McClanahan pac-
ing Grayling with 18 points, 6
rebounds, 4 steals and 4
assists. Geoff Wilson tallied
16 points, 5 rebounds and 1
assist, and Justice Junttila
chipped in with 11 points, 10
rebounds and 1 steal.
Michael Branch was the final
member of the foursome
with 10 points, 8 rebounds, 1
steal, 1 assist and 1 blocked
“Offensively, we have to get
better at distributing the ball
in traffic,” Moffit said. “We
also struggled to shoot the
ball from beyond the arc.
“We will get better.”
Other contributors for the
Vikings on Friday included:
Matt Burrell with 6 points, 6
rebounds and 1 steal; Scout
Tobin with 5 points, 3
rebounds and 1 steal; Carson
Burmeister with 2 points, 4
rebounds, 6 steals and 4
assists; Peyton Zigila with 3
rebounds and 1 steal;
Emmett Helsel with 3
rebounds; and Scott Wakeley
with 1 assist.
Grayling 64
Roscommon 46
The host Vikings used a
solid first half to propel them
to non-conference win, 64-
46, over neighboring rival
Roscommon on Tuesday, Jan.
Grayling put up more
points in the opening quar-
ter, than the visiting Bucks
managed in the entire first
half. The Vikings jumped out
to an 18-11 advantage in the
first quarter and, while hold-
ing Roscommon to just six
points in the second period,
forged an insurmountable
41-17 lead at halftime.
McClanahan helped pave
the way for Grayling 14
points, 1 rebound, 3 assists
and 3 steals, while Tobin
added 11 points, 3 rebounds,
3 assists and 4 steals. Junttila
hit for 9 points, grabbed a
team-best 11 rebounds and
had 4 steals in the win.
“I was very pleased with
our intensity during the first
and second quarters,” Moffit
said. “We created 23
turnovers in the first half and
created some easy scoring
Also contributing for the
Vikings were: Wilson with 8
points, 2 rebounds and 2
steals; Burrell 6 points and 3
rebounds; Burmeister with 4
points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists
and 5 steals; Mason
Papendick with 4 points, 4

and 1 assist; Helsel with 5
rebounds and 1 steal; Zane
Pittman with 3 rebounds
and 1 steal; and Darin
Nicholas with 2 rebounds
and 2 assists.
“We started the third quar-
ter with a 9-0 run and we
were allowed to get some
kids some valuable playing
time,” Moffit added.

Grayling falls in OT to Charlevoix, 71-68
By Andy Sneddon
Between them, there were
26 varsity letters, their
names appear myriad times
in the record books, and
their teams captured an
awful lot of hardware.
And the memories. Oh the
A trio of former Petoskey
High School greats – each a
legend in his own right –
comprises the Class of 2014
of the Petoskey Athletic Hall
of Fame.
Jerry Cosens, Mike Doctor
and Marty Hill will take their
place in the hall on Friday,
Jan. 24, during an induction
ceremony at halftime of the
Petoskey-Cadillac boys bas-
ketball game at Petoskey
High School.
All three were key mem-
bers of several Northmen
football, basketball, base-
ball, ski, and track and field
teams in the mid 1970s. And
each played a critical role
during a time when those
Northmen squads enjoyed
consistent and sustained
Hill graduated in 1976,
Cosens and Doctor in ’77.
The common denominator
was football, and all three
were key members of the
1975 team – Hill was a sen-
ior, the others juniors – that
finished 8-1 and won the
Michigan-Huron Shores
League championship.
Cosens quarterbacked
that squad, while Hill was a
fullback, and Doctor a half-
back. The fourth member of
that backfield, Tom Splan,
was inducted into the hall in
Hill now lives in
Rochester, N.Y., where he
owns and operates a con-
struction company. He
earned 11 varsity letters in
football, skiing and track and
field during his days in
Northmen blue and white.
He overcame an ankle
injury to place fifth in both
the slalom and giant slalom
in the 1976 state ski finals,
earning All-State honors,
and he helped lead Petoskey
to regional championships
in each of his four years as a
varsity skier.
As a sophomore, Hill won
the MHSL 440-yard dash
and was a member of the
school-record setting mile
relay team that also won the
league title. As a senior, he
anchored the conference-
champion 440 and 880 relay
squads (Doctor was also a
member of that 440 quartet),
and he was first in the league
meet in the 220, handing
Wayne Rhode of Rogers City
his first loss of the season in
the event. Rhode went on to
win the Class C state title in
the 100-yard dash that sea-
As a fullback, Hill was a
lead blocker out of the back-
field on the ’74 and ’75
Northmen teams that fin-
ished a combined 17-1 – the
’74 team remains Petoskey’s
last unbeaten squad – and
was a co-captain as a senior.
He was named to the all-
league team on both offense
and defense, and earned All-
State football honors from
the Detroit Free Press.
Cosens earned three varsi-
ty letters in basketball and
two each in football and
As a point guard, he led
Petoskey to district champi-
onships in each of his three
varsity seasons along with a
regional title in 1977, the
school’s first such boys bas-
ketball crown in 26 years.
Cosens, who played short-
stop on the baseball team,
finished his basketball
career with a then-school-
record 918 career points,
and he had logged 68 con-
secutive starts, a school
mark that stood for years.
Cosens went on to coach
youth basketball and Little
League for years, and he has
served as a broadcaster for
Northmen football and bas-
ketball games.
Doctor earned eight varsi-
ty letters, four in track and
field and two each in basket-
ball and football.
He not only shined along-
side Hill, Splan and Cosens
in the backfield, but was also
a standout as a defensive
back, drawing high praise
from former Northmen
assistant and Super Bowl
champion Mark Smolinski,
who called Docter “the best
defensive defensive back I
coached at Petoskey High
He earned all-conference
football honors in both his
junior and senior seasons,
and joined Hill, Mark Buday
and Gary Lemieur on
Petoskey’s record-setting
mile relay team in track.
Doctor, a periodontist in
Petoskey, went on to earn
four letters in football at
Albion College, and in 1980
was named to the All-
Michigan Intercollegiate
Athletic Association team.

CADILLAC – The Gaylord
freshmen boys team of
coach Jeremiah Young ral-
lied from an early 10-0
deficit on Friday, Jan. 17, at
the court of Big North rival
Cadillac but could not quite
make up enough ground in a
tense 42-40 defeat.
The young Blue Devils
showed plenty of scrap and
resilience after falling
behind early and very nearly
pulled the game out. A 3-

at the buzzer that would
have given Gaylord the win
just barely missed going in.

MIO – Yes, the Mio girls
varsity basketball team lost,
56-32, to visiting Rogers City
on Friday, Jan. 17. But, that
didn’t dampen the enthusi-
asm of the team’s coach,
who thinks her team is defi-
nitely headed for a possible
run in the second-half of the
2013-14 season.
Neither team lite up the
scoreboard early in Friday’s
hoops clash, with Rogers
City (6-2 overall) leading by
just one point, 13-12, at half-
time. That changed dramati-
cally after intermission, with
the Hurons outscoring the
host Lady Thunderbolts, 36-
11, in the third quarter.
Logan Fleming led all
scorers with 23 points, while
Courtney Streich added 10
points for the victorious
Jalen DeFlorio paced Mio
with 8 points, 10 rebounds
and 2 steals. Katy Lefler
added 5 points and 5
rebounds, and Tayler Blamer

The loss drops the Lady
Bolts to 5-3 overall on the
season. But, that’s OK with
Mio head coach Helen
“I am really happy with
the season, so far, and feel
that the losses we have had
can be turned into wins I the

Of course, the coach’s
optimism is bolstered by the

ST. IGNACE — First-year
Cheboygan boys basketball
coach Steve Ernst has been
preaching aggressive play,
and defense, since Day One.
The message would appear
to be hitting home.
The Chiefs used a suffocat-
ing defensive effort on Friday
in taking a 60-43 Straits Area
Conference road victory from
St. Ignace, a win that lifted
Cheboygan to 4-4 overall and
3-1 in the league.
It was the first league loss
for the Saints, and
Cheboygan moved into a
first-place tie with St. Ignace.
"That was probably our
best defensive game of the
year, and that's what I'm
most proud of with these
guys, they defended excep-
tionally well," said Ernst,
whose team forced 27
turnovers. “Defense and
rebounding are really the
bedrock of basketball, and
we did both of those things
really well.”
The Chiefs are scheduled
to go to Newberry on Friday
for another SAC game.
Luke Harrington scored 16
of his game-high 21 points in
the third quarter to lead the
Chiefs past St. Ignace. Ben
Pearson added 11 points and
11 rebounds for Cheboygan,
and point guard Derek
Sturvist added 13 points and
five assists.
"It looked like the basket-
ball I've been wanting from
these kids, and they know
they can play," Ernst said. "To
come (to St. Ignace) and win
was a huge step for our team,
and we hope we can contin-
ue to build on that heading
forward. I'm very proud of
these kids for coming here
and getting this win."

BELLAIRE – The St. Mary
boys of coach Ken Blust were
huge underdogs at the court
of unbeaten and third-
ranked Bellaire on Thursday,
Jan. 16, but the Snowbirds
showed plenty of resolve
and ended up giving the tal-
ented Eagles a very tough
fight in a 61-44 loss.
Rangy senior wing Charles
Strehl, who is having a whale
of a season for the scrappy
Snowbirds, showed up
strong in the Ski Valley clash,
draining the nets for a team-
high 23 points. He also
pulled down a dozen
rebounds for a double-dou-
His hot shooting com-
bined with the blue-collar
play of Orion Beningo and
Willy Canfield and the speed
of Nick Harrington in the
backcourt kept things inter-
esting for a long while. The
Snowbirds only trailed by a
point, 28-27, at halftime.
Strehl was a sparkling 7-
for-7 from the charity stripe.
Blust commended Strehl
for his effort, noting it was
probably the best game of
his four-year hardwood
career on the varsity.
Bellaire (6-0, 4-0) isn’t
unbeaten and sitting atop
the Ski Valley standings
along with Onaway for noth-
ing, however. James
Schrader was also on fire
from the floor, drilling 29
points to lead all scorers,
and dangerous Denny Hall
hit for 20.
ON TUESDAY, Jan. 14, the
Snowbirds suffered a 61-48
loss at home to non-league
foe Atlanta. Strehl showed
up big in that one also, stok-
ing the twine for 22 points.
The visiting Huskies grad-
ually pulled away in the
third quarter as depth
became more of an issue for
St. Mary, which would even-
tually lose the speedy
Harrington to fouls in the
fourth quarter. The
Snowbirds were already
short-handed going into the
contest, having lost the valu-
able senior sharpshooter
Cam “Gibby” Juneac to a
knee injury earlier this
St. Mary was down 22
points early in the fourth
quarter but never stopped
The strong-armed Strehl
pulled down seven
rebounds to go with his 22
points. Harrington hit for 10
before leaving and he also
issued four assists. Canfield
connected for eight points
and Beningo was a beast
inside, bringing down eight
rebounds. Levi Milan also
helped the cause, recording
four assists to go with five
boards and two points.
St. Mary (2-4, 1-3 Ski
Valley Conference) played at

GAYLORD – The fight was
certainly there.
Unfortunately, the depth
wasn’t. The young Gaylord
hockey team battled vigor-
ously on the home ice over
the weekend, as usual, but
couldn’t overcome two pretty
good opponents and over-
come a huge disadvantage in
depth at the same time.
The Blue Devils were
already short-handed when
they faced the FNV Griffins
out of Saginaw on Friday, Jan.
17, and those numbers were
diminished even more when
two of Gaylord’s healthy
defensemen, Jack Ryan and
Josh Delaney, were sent to
the hospital following on-ice
collisions. Jack suffered a
concussion and will hopeful-
ly return in time to play this
weekend. Josh is lost for the
season, however, with the
injury he sustained in the
The Blue Devils led 3-1
after one period and 3-2 after
two periods but the Griffins
scored four times in the third
period to secure a 6-3 deci-
Gaylord battled gamely
with just nine skaters in
Saturday’s game with Mid-
Michigan but it was a similar
story. The score was tied 2-2
midway through the second
period but the visiting Storm
was able to pull away to gain
a 4-2 victory.
Friday’s confrontation with
the Griffins was very physi-
cal. The Griffins play an in-
your-face, aggressive style of
play. Two of the FNV players
received 10-minute miscon-
duct penalties in the third
period. Gaylord had six
power-play opportunities in
the game but couldn’t cash in
as Griffin goalie Brandon
Hausebeck, who was brought
in to replace the starting
goalie late in the first period,
proved to be impregnable in
the nets.
The Blue Devils did all
their scoring in the first 11:20
of the game as Derek Adair lit
the scoring lamp unassisted
for a short-handed goal, his
second of the campaign, and
Garrett Richardson rocketed
home two blistering blasts
for his seventh and eighth
goals of the season. Cam
Laug assisted on both
Richardson rockets and
Jackson Deans also earned
an assist.
In Saturday’s contest with
Mid-Michigan, it was the
opportunistic Deans receiv-
ing a pretty pass from Joey
Ross and lighting the lamp at
the 11:30 mark of the first
period to tie matters at 1.
In the second period, Gage
Andrews generated his sec-
ond goal of the season with a
whistling wrister to tie the
score at 2. Deans delivered
an assist along with hard-
driving Blake Miller.
The Storm, who had lost 5-
1 to Gaylord earlier in the
season, amassed 34 shots in
the game to Gaylord’s 12.
Blue Devil goalie Ethan
O’Dell stood on his head at
times to keep the Blue Devils
in contention to the end. He
faced 12 shots in the third
period and turned every one
of them away. The Blue
Devils had the grit and deter-
mination to compete but not
enough healthy bodies to
create suitable scoring
chances against a quick team
like the Storm over the
course of three full periods.
Gaylord (1-7-1) played T.C.
West on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
This Friday, Jan. 24, they are
home against perennial
league rival Petoskey and on
Saturday, Jan. 25, the Blue
Devils play at the Bay City
Thunder. On Wednesday, Jan.
29, they play at the ice of Big
North foe Cadillac.

The Firebirds face
Schoolcraft this weekend,
with the Lady Birds tipping

men’s play at 3 p.m. In the
Eastern Conference, the
women’s team currently has a

women’s basketball teams.
“It’s good for communities,
raises awareness about our
program and gets people out
to the game so they can sup-

Department of Natural
Resources confirmed the
catch of a new state record
flathead catfish on Monday,
Jan. 13.
The catfish was caught by
Dale Blakley of Niles, Mich.,
on Sunday, Jan. 12, on Barron
Lake in Cass County at 3 p.m.
The fish weighed 52.0
pounds and measured 46.02
inches. Blakley was ice fish-
ing for crappies when he
landed the record fish.
The record was verified by
Brian Gunderman, a DNR
fisheries biologist, at the
Plainwell office.
The previous state record
flathead catfish was caught
by Rodney Akey of Niles on
the St. Joseph River in
Berrien County on May 22,
2012. That fish weighed 49.8
pounds and measured 45.7
inches. Prior to that, the
record hadn’t been broken
since 1943.
“Catching this fish was the
most exhilarating experi-
ence,” said Blakley. “It was
only the second time I’ve
ever gone ice fishing and it
was the only bite we had on
the lake the whole day. This
definitely sits at the top of my
It should be noted that flat-
head catfish typically inhabit
large river systems, like the
nearby St. Joseph River.
Based on the size of this fish,
it mysteriously found its way
to Barron Lake several years
ago, perhaps through illegal
stocking as there are no
direct connections to a large
river system. Anglers are
reminded that transferring
fish from one water body to
another is prohibited
because such transfers can
disrupt the fish community
in the receiving water
through predation, competi-
tion with native species, or
introduction of new disease-
causing organisms.
State records are recog-
nized by weight only. To qual-
ify for a state record, fish
must exceed the current list-
ed state record weight and
identification must be veri-
fied by a DNR fisheries biolo-
“We’ve had numerous state
records broken in the last
couple of years, further
showcasing the quality of
Michigan’s fisheries,” said
DNR Fisheries Division Chief
Jim Dexter. “We hope this lat-
est catch encourages anglers
to get out on the water in
search of their own state
record – or at least a great

68A¥LIß6, the premier online resource
for buying and selling new and used cars,
announced tonight, at its annual "Best
of" awards show, that the 2014 Chevrolet
Impala is the winner of the site's highest
honor, "Best of 2014." The
"Best of 2014" winner embodies the
highest in quality, innovation and value,
the three key criteria used by
"2014's all-new Impala won over our
editors with improved performance and
power, a revamped luxurious interior
and top-of-the-line technology," said
Patrick Olsen,'s Editor-in-
Chief. "Once a bland sedan, the new
Impala is not only the best in its class,
but our top pick out of all brand-new
2014 models. The 2014 Impala is a truly
transformed car."
Other nominees for the "Best of 2014"
award included the Acura MDX, Hyundai
Santa Fe, Kia Forte, Mazda3 and Mazda6.
"Our team of experts evaluated dozens
of cars to determine which was worthy of
this honor," said OIsen. "While the
Impala topped our list as the overall 'Best
of 2014,' each finalist represents the best
in its class, and shoppers can be assured
that each has our full seal of approval."
In addition to winning the
"Best of 2014" award, the Impala also
won the
Today/MotorWeek Full Size Sedan
Challenge. Full details and other award
winners can be found at
picked all-new models from Chevrolet –
the Impala sedan and the Silverado full-
size pickup – as its Best Car and Best
Truck of 2014, awards presented each
January during the North American
International Auto Show.
The nominees’ attention to innovation,
quality and value influences the vehicles
chosen. Each category has six nominees.
“Winning just one of these awards for
an automaker is pretty tough, given the
high number of quality cars and trucks
that debut each year,” said Patrick Olsen,
editor-in-chief of “For
Chevrolet to grab both awards shows the
depth of their ability to build desirable
The Silverado, completely redesigned
for the 2014 model year, earned high
marks for its chassis strength, redesigned
interior and MyLink connected infotain-
ment system.
“Winning these awards is a huge honor
for Chevrolet,” said Alan Batey, General
Motors senior vice president of Global
Chevrolet. “The fact that the top vehicle
in both these categories is a Chevrolet
speaks volumes about the strength of our
entire portfolio.”

Compliments of
Ed Wohlfiel
During the real estate transaction
(especially if you’re a first-time buyer),
you’re hit with so many foreign terms,
fees and requirements your head
spins. One of those strange and unfa-
miliar costs is title insurance. In most
cases, borrowers have no option—
either you get title insurance (among
other requirements) or you don’t get a
The lender says you need it, you
want the loan to go though, so you buy
title insurance. Great. So what is title
When you buy a home you want to
make sure that the people selling it
actually have full and legal title. The
party who conducts closing will check
this out by going down to the local
property records office to research the
history of ownership.
But those records down at the prop-
erty office may be official, but they
may also be wrong. It’s also possible
that the person who does the title
search can make a mistake and also
that important information may sim-
ply not be recorded.
For instance, maybe a bill against
the property was not recorded or some
taxes were not been paid. Or, suppose
that 40 years ago the property you
want to purchase was owned by Smith.
Let’s also imagine that Smith was a
bigamist with an extra spouse. Will this
matter show up on the local property
records? Not likely. Does the additional
Smith spouse have an ownership claim
against the property? That may only be
clear after a lot of legal wrangling—and
if you lose, you could lose the house.
There may be other odd and bizarre
claims as well. Was an owner an alco-
holic? Insane? A drug user? Is there a
contractor with a claim against the
property? Such issues can “cloud” titles
and neither lenders nor owners want
One form of title insurance,
“lenders” coverage, is designed to pro-
tect (who else?) your lender in case of
title problems. “Lenders” coverage is
required and generally provides pro-
tection up to the original mortgage
amount—if you buy a home for
$300,000 and get a $250,000 mortgage,
then $250,000 is as much coverage as
you can get with a lender’s policy. If
there’s a claim, the title insurer will
fight on your behalf and if there’s a
claim the policy will pay off the loan if
necessary. This is good news for you
because you won’t owe the lender a
dime if you lose in court.
But there are also some options.
For instance, you can also get “own-
ers” coverage. This will protect your
equity—that $50,000 in the example
above not covered by the lender’s poli-
cy. And you can often get an “inflation
rider” with an owner’s policy—as the
value of your home goes up, so does
the value of your title coverage.
While title insurance is required by
virtually all lenders, there is one big
exception: Loans made in Iowa. In
Iowa, the state says that attorneys and
others who do title work must partici-
pate in a title guarantee program. If
there’s a title error, the state fund pro-
vides coverage.
