Senior Night Special for Newaygo’s Kral

NEWAYGO – Senior night in Newaygo Thursday evening was particularly special for one Newaygo student-athlete.

Trevir Kral, a student-manager for the varsity boys basketball program, saw his journey on the hardwood come full circle.

Kral was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia as an eighth-grader in 2016 and underwent treatment and chemotherapy over the next three years. Because of his treatments, Kral was unable to participate in athletics, instead serving as a manager for Newaygo’s basketball, football and baseball programs.

Kral completed his chemotherapy treatments in August 2019 and began his senior year of high school.

In Thursday’s regular-season finale against Kent City, Kral was in the starting lineup and scored his first basket for the Lions.
