A year removed from magical runs that saw the Rockford Rams lose in the state semifinal and West Catholic Falcons fall in the state championship, both squads will be returning to the friendly confines of Michigan State’s Breslin Center.
Rockford returns the bulk of their 2022 campaign’s roster, while West Catholic has made their run without the help of current MSU guard and 2022 Miss Basketball candidate, Abbey Kimball. Despite the huge loss, 2023 Senior guard Cadence Dykstra has stepped into the leadership role and several others have taken hold of bigger opportunities with a year of experience behind them.
Both squads have rolled this post-season with West Catholic only experiencing one scare in overtime against Grand Rapids Christian. West Michigan has a real chance at securing multiple titles this week on the girl’s side and will be riding high hopes when the boys head to Breslin next week.
