WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- One by one, the Fighting Wolverines climbed the ladder and cut the net, section by section. Two days after winning the school's first-ever state basketball championship, the team was center stage at a Monday afternoon student assembly led by principal Chad Conklin.
"It's awesome - it's a great victory for our team. I'm really proud of coach Whittemore - really proud of the players, the effort they gave and the way they represented us during this deep tournament run," Conklin said.
Conklin coached the team until this year; he stepped aside this fall after his son suffered a serious injury. That son, Carson, is now recovering.
Conklin says he's optimistic Godwin Heights can look forward to another great season next year. They will graduate five seniors, but he says they have plenty of other talent that will return.
