District athletic director Kurt Johnson, along with the Board of Education acknowledged and congratulated the young men on both their academic and athletic achievements through out this season. The All Stars finished the season completely undefeated , taking home the title and trophy of City Champions.
Coach Steve Rambus and athletic director Vincent Mayfield both shared the importance that the Ottawa Hills Varsity coach Van Mayfield played in their season. More collaboration between high school coaches and their feeder pattern middle school coaches will continue to bridge the gap between the levels and provide better experiences for the lower levels. Teams will be even more prepared for the expectations that await them as they move on from middle to high school.
