Coaches Share Faith and Inspire in K-Christian Basketball

K-Christian Middle School Basketball Teams

The boys’ and girls’ middle school basketball C teams competed hard this year. They demonstrated outstanding team basketball and represented Christ well both on and off the court.

Often in the best athletic rivalries, a sigh of relief doesn’t come until the final buzzer sounds. And that was the case in Friday’s K-Christian-Kalamazoo Hackett showdown.


The sport of basketball has been a platform for coaches to share their faith. Some of these coaches openly pray before each game, while others share their faith in a more discreet way. Their ability to be open about their faith inspires players, fans and coaches across the country.

Krzyzewski is the winningest coach in NCAA history with 873 victories and a slew of championships to his name, including three Olympic gold medals.

He’s seen his fair share of NBA Lottery selections on the KU sidelines as well, including Josh Jackson, Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid. He’s coached more than 30 Jayhawks to play professionally, either in the NBA, G-League or overseas. He is a native of Adrian, Michigan and graduated from Crown College with a bachelor’s degree in secondary education.

Getting everybody’s best shot is what makes championship teams great. And, based on their play this season, Kalamazoo Christian’s boys are a tournament-ready bunch. The Chargers, ranked No. 1 in Class C, got Grand Rapids Covenant Christian’s best Tuesday night and responded with a 72-67 victory.

Sophomore Jordyn Bonnema leads K-Christian with 15.2 points per game, while senior Aubrey Herder adds 10.5 a contest. The Comets – who have won six straight games entering this week’s nonleague schedule against in-town foes Loy Norrix and Hackett Catholic – have mastered eight different offensive sets and will shift their schemes on the fly to frustrate opponents.

Practices for all boys’ and girls’ teams begin Monday, with the exception of the Frederickson K-2nd teams (see coach for specific times). Check with your team’s coaches for practice locations.


KALAMAZOO — Top-ranked and undefeated in Class C basketball, Kalamazoo Christian is used to getting everybody’s best shot. But when it came Tuesday night from Grand Rapids Covenant Christian, the Chargers responded in kind with sharp shooting and clutch free-throw work to advance to Thursday’s regional final against Division 2 No. 1 Buchanan at Centreville High School. K-Christian junior Kaylee Bonnema threw in 11 of her game-high 27 points in the first quarter and went 6-for-9 from the free-throw line in a 72-67 win over the Comets. Alyssa Wledon added 15 points for the Trojans. Plainwell’s Lauren Vos corralled an offensive rebound with seconds left and nailed a jumper to force overtime in a 46-42 improbable state playoff win over Olivet this weekend.
