DEVELOPING: OSG High: Fennville Wins First Game Back

((HT: WOOD-TV Grand Rapids))

Fennville ((MI)) High won their first game since their star player collapsed after scoring the winning basket to give his team a perfect regular-season record back on Thursday.

Nearly 3,500 fans observed a moment of silence for Fenville's Wes Leonard before the tipoff of their state tournament game between Fennville and Lawrence high schools- schools who know players and have friends on both sides of the floor.

Fennville won 65-54 and improve to 21-0. Players from both high school teams wore warm-up shirts paying tribute to Leonard. The game was moved to the Hope College arena in the nearby town of Holland to accommodate the crowd that was anticipated for the game Monday.

Our friends from WOOD-TV continue their "Win it for Wes" coverage...
