Glen Lake Sets High Goals In Girls Basketball

MAPLE CITY — The Glen Lake girls basketball team has picked up right where it left off with a pair of wins over Traverse City St. Francis and Midland to start this season.

With those two wins, the Lakers have won 19 straight regular season games, with their last loss coming on Feb. 18, 2020.

Glen Lake returns a majority of last year’s team, who went 19-1 and won a regional title. The Lakers have also won at least a share of the conference during the last three seasons, so this year’s seniors have a chance to win conference all four years.

“The seniors kind of want to make that footprint for themselves. You know, they haven’t really with COVID the last two years and the seasons short. They wanna see what they can do at the end of the season. Something to remember them by,” Glen Lake head coach Jason Bradford said.

The Lakers had a tough regional tournament, having to defeat McBain and Hart, before taking on Calumet in the quarterfinals. Glen Lake lost that game, 73-69.

The Lakers last won a title in 1978 along with a state championship appearance in 1979. They hope to end that drought of not making a state championship appearance, but they know it’ll take a team effort.

“Our big goal is to win states,” Glen Lake senior Grace Bradford said. “We’ll do it one step at a time, and hoping to start off by winning conference, just working as a team and improving our game,”
