Grass Lake 52, Kent City 50

Kent City fell behind Grass Lake 36-24 in the 3rd quarter of the Division 3 state championship game and couldn't quite pull off the comeback falling 52-50.

Jenna Harrison lead the Eagles with 16 points including a bucket at the buzzer to make the final score a 2-point margin, it was the 3rd time in the final frame they had cut the deficit to a deuce.

"Just the team," Harrison said when asked what she will remember most about that run to the finals. "The chemistry we have is unmatched, it is the bet I've had ever especially beside Kenzie Bowers, we have been friends forever, we played basketball growing up and it is just a great feeling to be part of this team."

Grass Lake (20-1) made its free throws down the stretch to hold on.

Kenzie Bowers added 13 for KC.

"This isn't where we expected to be," Bowers said. "It was scary to think that we weren't going to have a season, but when it got to the point that this is where we knew we were going to be and we didn't get the outcome we wanted but it was still a ton of fun."
