GVSU women's basketball hitting stride midseason

Nobody knew what to expect from the Grand Valley State women’s basketball team coming into this season. A program that finished second in the GLIAC and won a game in the NCAA tournament saw sizable roster turnover and a plethora of new faces that would be required to contribute to the team. So far, things have gone about as well as most could have hoped, as the Lakers are 13-2 overall (6-1 GLIAC) and currently riding a six-game winning streak.


Quick hits: Cassidy Boensch's basketball GLIAC honors, swimming and rifle club results

The Grand Valley State women’s basketball team has been rolling so far this year, winning their past six contests to establish a comfortable 13-2 overall record (6-1 GLIAC). But the road hasn’t been easy, as this year’s team has been recently plagued with the injury bug to key players. Luckily for the Lakers, they have sophomore Cassidy Boensch, the team’s tallest player at 6 feet 4 inches, to come off the bench and be productive in the paint.

GVSU swimming and diving trains in Florida over winter break

Winter break may have been snowy for most Grand Valley State students, but some lucky student athletes got the chance to come back with a few tan lines—and a ton of memories. The GVSU men's and women's swimming and diving teams traveled down to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for a week of intense training at Nova Southeastern University. For head coach Andy Boyce, this trip is a great opportunity for his athletes to improve.
