Ludington off to Fast Start in 2021
The Ludington girls basketball program has gotten off to a fast start for the 2021 season, outscoring its first three opponents by an average of 40 points per game.
After going undefeated in Lakes 8 Conference play a year ago en route to their fourth league championship in five years, the Orioles (3-0, 2-0) have won 19 consecutive conference games and hope to continue to build off that success.
“I’m really proud of our team,” Abi Bandstra Ludington junior said. “We have a very young bench, we lost a ton seniors last year, but it’s great to be back. I think just taking advantage of every opportunity we have to play together, just to just continue to play basketball and not be so caught up in the plays is super important and just taking it one game at a time.”
“It’s not about wins, losses, championships for these girls, it’s about just doing the best they can,” added Ludington coach Warren Stowe. “Sometimes that sounds cliché, but this group is focused on just getting better.”
Ludington travels to Mason County Central Monday and returns home against Muskegon Orchard View on Friday. Ludington the first meeting against Orchard View 57-10.
