After an impressive season, the Lake Shore boy’s basketball team season came to an end on Wednesday, February 28th during the district game with Roseville.
The Lake Shore boy’s basketball team ended the season with a postseason 19-3 record with their only losses coming from New Haven, L’anse Creuse, and Dakota. Lake Shore became the 83rd ranked team in Michigan out of 437 and 2822nd team nationally.
Some season personal highlights include senior Caleb Bates dropping 44 points and 22 rebounds. Senior Malik Miner dropping 18 points 3 assists and 7 rebounds. Nicholas Olmeda had 17 points 4 assists and 5 rebounds in Lake Shore’s district game against Roseville.
Coach Michael Jackson took the team over about halfway through the season and led them to a mac championship. The boys also had two tournament championships in which they got trophies for winning in both.
Caleb Bates, Senior, said, “I think we had a great season we were 19-3, so you can’t ask for much more if I had to change something it would be the game last night (district loss to Roseville) instead of losing I would definitely want to win it.”
Malik Hill, Senior, explained, “I think we did well. It was pretty good. We went 17-4, and one thing I would change would be the outcome after halftime.” The score at halftime was 23-22, The Shorians winning at half.
Overall, Lake Shore had an impressive season with some very impressive players. Lake Shore overcame the adversity of getting a new coach and succeeded with it. Lake Shore’s team for next year is still looking promising with losing all these seniors this year. A lot of potential for returning varsity players and some JV players coming up looks like the team could have a chance to shine.
