  • Wolverines hold on late, advance to district semis

    MALVERN - Nursing a one-point lead with just over a minute remaining in the East Mills team Class 1A district opener against Riverside on Thursday, basketball coach Kevin Schafer went to an old bag of tricks.

    Following a timeout, and leading 43-42 with the ball, the Wolverines came out in an old school, three-man, dribble weave on offense that Schafer hadn’t used all year.

    “We weren’t going to shoot unless we had a layup,” said Schafer.

With rumors swirling that the financially-strapped district will have to make heavy cuts from the fiscal 2010-2011 budget, the question on the minds of most in attendance was just how much and how deep those cuts will impact programs and teachers.

    Integrity.

    Ethics.
