Game Recap

The JV Girls Basketball team traveled to Ottawa Hills to take on the Bengals. The Bengals jumped out to a quick lead behind tough defense and the sharp shooting of #20, T. Moores. The Wildcats had more trouble than usual putting the ball in the basket as their cold streak continued through the entire first half. In addition, the Bengals continued to shoot well from the outside. The Wildcats turned up the defense in the 3rd quarter to hold OH to 1 point and half-way through the 3rd quarter they took the lead for good.

The Wildcats are now 11-2 overall and 4-1 in league play.
Next week Thursday the Wildcats take on TK at home to start round two of league play.

Meet Recap

Tonight the Wayland Union ladies won 30-0 in a forfeit versus Ottawa Hills to improve their conference record to 7-0 (11-0 overall). Although the win was assured, the ladies still came out bowled their best in a few weeks. A slow start in the first Baker game was finished off strong with a decent 158. The second Baker game followed a similar pattern resulting in a 151. Where they really picked it up was in the first Team Individual game. The Lady Wildcats shot their first 900 game in several weeks with exactly 900. They were consistent from top to bottom. They continued the strong performance in the second Team Individual game firing a 918 with 3 ladies in the 190s. Leading the way tonight was sophomore Sydney Urben 213-190=403. Junior Alicia Sweeney shot a 178-197=375; senior Aubree Hodges 179-182=361; senior Lizzy Cobb 156-197=353 and sophomore Marissa Bruinsslot 174-152=326. As you can see, consistent bowling throughout the line-up with the team averaging 183 tonight. This was the type of performance we needed to continue to build to our goals for this season of winning the conference and qualifying for State. Hopefully it also gives us a little momentum heading into Saturday’s Zeeland Invitational tournament. Great work tonight ladies! ~Coach Holbrook

Meet Recap

Wayland didn’t have any trouble tonight defeating Ottawa Hills 30-0. The boys took the first baker game 189 – 144 and the second baker game 180-148.

In the first individual game we had high games by Nick Couterier with a 200, Jesse Miling 182, Michael Foley 190, and Cameron Heintzelman 218. Team total was 964 to Ottawa’s 683. We were now up 19-0.

The second game included a substitution and some rearranging. Michael Foley got some experience as anchor bowler. He will be the only senior next year (unless some new kids go out for bowling – HINT, HINT, HINT!). Cameron Heintzelman led all bowlers this game with a 206. This game the Cats scored 868 as a team to Ottawa’s 640.

It was a great night!

Wildcats News · WU Athletic Boosters Honor the late Tom Andrews as Booster of the Year


Wayland Athletic Boosters is proud to recognize Tom Andrews with 2015 Booster of the Year Award

Tom made enormous contributions to his community and school district. He served in the Thornapple Township EMS, Wayland EMS, and as a Reserve Officer in the Allegan County Sheriff Department. Tom also helped coach T-Ball, youth baseball, youth football, was an umpire for Dorr Rec Dept., was involved in Boy Scouts, and was an important member of the Wayland Athletic Boosters.

When Tom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Medullary Thyroid Cancer in 2007, his odds were not good. Statistics showed that two years was the average life expectancy. Tom did not let the diagnosis get to him. He went on. In 2010, as the cancer began to spread, Tom was able to get into a Clinical Trial for a new drug being tested. He went on living his life and giving his all. Though he could no longer work, Tom was not one to sit idly. He decided to get involved in the Wayland Athletic Booster program.

Tom started attending Booster meetings and soon became a member. When he became Vice-president, he turned his attention to running concessions. He spent countless hours in the summer cleaning and organizing the concession stands, upgrading equipment, ordering product to feed the masses, and organizing volunteers. This was a colossal undertaking. He worked with Athletic Director Justin Wilson, New Life Church – whose members dedicated many hours in concessions, and Kris Shyne who made sure Tom never missed his son’s kickoff. Tom tried to be at each concession event. At times, he would be there before noon and work until the start of the game, and then stay late to clean up and count money.

When Tom became President, he had big dreams of how the Boosters could grow in the years his daughter was in high school. He was responsible for many accomplishments, including the development of the Booster logo we all see. Tom wanted to find a way to bring the community together, promote the Boosters program, and have some fun along the way and so the idea for the Booster Bash was born. When Tom saw how effective banners and end zone signs were at other schools, he proposed the idea to the Boosters and the AD office. Tom had many plans for the future including new program books and advertisement opportunities. He worked side-by-side with AD Justin Wilson to bring those ideas to realization. Though Tom did not live to see some of his ideas come to pass, his hard work laid the foundation for the Boosters to see them to completion.

When the time came to open concessions in spring 2015, Tom became very ill and was hospitalized. He could no longer ignore the direction his health was taking and made the decision to step down as president and hand over concession responsibilities. A community Celebration was organized for Tom, and he was profoundly touched that so many attended. At the end of spring of 2015, Tom lost his battle with cancer. His family can’t say thank you enough for all the support this community gave to Tom in his last months. He loved Wayland and devoted so much of himself to it. During his battle with cancer, Tom found purpose and gave us a vision to carry forward.

“It has not been easy following in the footsteps of such a great man and hard worker. I am honored to continue to move the Boosters forward and to bring many of Tom’s ideas and plans to life. We are having a fantastic year and that is thanks to Tom’s time and investment in our organization.” –Shelly Whitley, Booster President

“Tom Andrews was a remarkable man. I will forever remember his kindness and work ethic. His selflessness and dedication serve as a daily remainder of what is truly important.” – Justin Wilson, Athletic Director
