CEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. — The Cedar Springs girls basketball team got off to the program's first 3-0 start since the 2010-11 season. On Wednesday, the Lady Red Hawks came away with a 49-39 comeback victory over Newaygo to notch the fourth consecutive win.
"We made the district final last year with a group of four sophomores," head coach Brandon Miller said, "we have a core group that's here, we want to battle for the OK White championship, we're going to keep working every day."
Nobody really knows the last time Cedar Springs has gotten off to a 4-0 start in a season but they do know it's been nearly 50 years since girls basketball has won a conference.
"It means a lot," junior Avery Sparling said, "to be out here every day with eleven of my best friends, it means so much to me honestly and to be 4-0 with this group. We really want the OK White conference this year and I think we can be a good contender for that."
Junior Maggie Prins had a game-high 13 points in the win over Newaygo.
"We really work hard to share the ball," Prins said, "we're not selfish, when we're open, we're open and we take chances, we don't let each other get down on ourselves."
