Wes Leonard Fennville tops Bridgeman (Video)

Wes Leonard, who hit an overtime layup to win Thursday night’s game against Bridgman, told the Kalamazoo Gazette last week that he’d been battling the flu.
“Sickness got to us a little bit,” Leonard told the Gazette after a win over Bangor.
Wes Leonard, who died at Holland Hospital, was the star player on a team that coach Ryan Klinger told the Press last month “have a special bond between them.”
“From top to bottom, this is one of the best teams I’ve been able to coach,” Klingler said then. “Our bench is awfully good during the game with their energy, and, if you look at really good teams, that’s what they have.”

Fennville was ranked No. 6 in the lastest Associated Press Class C poll.
“We have eight or nine guys playing (a lot), but we still have 13 guys on the team, and they are buying into being positive and supportive and playing whatever role is called upon,” Klingler said.
