Fennville Wins District Final, Heads To Regionals Next

The inspirational story of Fennville High School's basketball team continues with another victory tonight:
 Fennville won for the third time since the on-court death of star player Wes Leonard, rallying past Covert, 51-48, in a Class C district final tonight in Grand Rapids.  Fennville erased a 10-point deficit to improve to a perfect 23-0.
Next, it's off to regionals, where play begins on Monday.

UPDATE 3/14/11:  Fennville plays Schoolcraft in the Class C regional semifinal in Vicksburg.  Capacity is about 3,500, similar to DeVos Fieldhouse in Holland, where Fennville played their 3 district playoff games.
