Lake City Tops Gladwin by 30 in Season Opener

GLADWIN — Lake City held a 29-9 lead over Gladwin at halftime in girls basketball and the Trojans built that to a 54-24 victory on Monday on the road to start the season.

Chloe Bisballe led the Trojans with 21 points, while MacKenzie Bisballe added 10 points and 14 rebounds. Gladwin’s Anna Seebeck had six points. Lake City outscored Gladwin, 18-3, in the second quarter.

“It’s really fun. We started playing and we were all just laughing and having a good time. It’s just good to be back and playing regular basketball with everyone here watching us and supporting us,” Chloe Bisballe said.

With the win, Lake City has now won 10 straight season openers. This year’s season started about two and a half months before last season because of the coronavirus-delayed start to last year. The Trojans were excited to begin the season on time and with another victory this year.

“It feels great just to be back in the gym. Playing in November, early-December, like we’re supposed to, fans in the stands, I mean, it’s a great atmosphere,” Lake City head coach Bill Tisron said. “We have our home opener Friday, so we’re excited to get the season going.”

Lake City will host Evart on Friday to start conference play at 7 p.m. Gladwin will hit the road for the first time on Wednesday for a matchup at Midland Bullock Creek at 7:30 p.m.
