Lansing Catholic, Portland earn title share
LANSING CATHOLIC 64, IONIA 39
LANSING — On a night where they celebrated their lone senior Sydney Buda, the Lansing Catholic girls basketball team secured a share of the CAAC White title.
The Division 2 No. 7-ranked Cougars earned their piece of the crown with a 64-39 home win over Ionia on Friday.
The victory helped Lansing Catholic complete a strong regular season 18-2 and finish 8-1 in the CAAC White.
“It’s been a long time (since we’ve won a league title),” Lansing Catholic coach Kacee Reid said. “I think we’ve always had a heavy hitter in our league. In the past it’s been Williamston and lately it’s been Portland. It’s just been really hard to try and carve out a share of that.
“We thought we had a pretty good shot at maybe getting one of the Portland games this year. We’re really proud of our girls. (Winning a league title) was definitely a goal of ours as a team.”
