Willow Run to host “one last shot”


Willow Run's NyShaun Marks goes for a layup against Dexter last season. file

Willow Run is inviting back all former Flyers basketball players and coaches to take part in a ceremony commemorating the last game in program history March 1.

The event, dubbed “One Last Shot,” will bring together alumni for a reunion and halftime ceremony. The district is merging with Ypsilanti starting over the summer, bringing the end to the basketball program after nearly 50 years.

The school is asking former players to register in the cafeteria between 6 and 7 p.m. the night of the game. Admission will be free for former players and coaches, who will be honored at halftime.

The Flyers will be hosting Detroit Community in a 7 p.m. matchup. A win would give Willow Run a share of the Michigan Metro Athletic Conference title.

Just before the end of the season, two more area players have hit the 1,000-point milestone.

Milan forward C.J. Turnage hit the 1,000 point mark Friday in his team’s regular season finale, while Manders did it Monday in the Dutch’s district opener.

Turnage scored a career-high 28 points Friday against Monroe Jefferson to become the fourth player in Milan history to reach the mark. That list includes Turnage’s uncle Stan Joplin, Milan’s career scoring leader with 1,501 points from 1972-75. Turnage signed with Saginaw Valley State in the spring.

Manders scored the first two buckets of Manchester’s win over Greenhills, hitting 1,000 points on the second one. She finished the game with 14 points.

Five area players have now hit the 1,000-point mark this season, after McKenna Erkfritz, Oestreich and Greenhills’ Andrew Khouri.

Skyline’s Young, team manager play senior night

Skyline managed to get all of its seniors involved in its senior night game Friday against Tecumseh -- whether they’re on the active roster or not.

Senior Allison Young, who played in every varsity game of Skyline’s first two seasons, had shoulder surgery after the second game of the year, and missed the following 17 games.

But in her team’s last regular-season game of the season, Young was able to suit up one more time for the Eagles.

Skyline coach Keith Wade also found minutes for Jayla Sims, a four-year team equipment manager, who played in her first game.

“That was the highlight of the night,” Wade said.

Way to go, Jacqui. I have a feeling that the Lake Superior State basketball coach may just have gotten a present she didn't know was coming....
