Bamm Earns JTV Girls Basketball Player of the Year

Columbia Central High School basketball player Zoie Bamm was named as the JTV Girls Basketball Player of the Year for 2022-2023.  By Jeff Steers JTV Sports (March 21, 2023 4:57 PM ET) If there is a rebounding or scoring record at Columbia Central High School, Zoie Bamm’s name is probably on it. It probably does not matter whether it is a boy or girl basketball record. She nearly owns them all. For that reason, the CCHS senior was named the JTV Girls Basketball Player of the Year for 2022-2023.  Bamm averaged nearly 20 points per game, more than 15 rebounds, one assist, nearly two steals, and three blocked shots for the Golden Eagles this season. CCHS earned its third consecutive district title with a win over Sand Creek in the district tournament at Reading.  “It was a very good last year, and I appreciated my teammates and coaches for it,” Bamm said.  Bamm finished 12 rebounds short of being a 1,000-plus points scorer and a 1,000 rebounder.  She finished with nearly 1,400 points in her four-year career on the varsity level for CCHS.  Bamm joined an elite group when she scored 22 points in a win against Jonesville  Dec. 2…

By Jeff Steers JTV News (March 20, 2023 4:01 PM ET) Jackson Public Schools graduate Darryll Stinson appeared to have everything going for him in life during the late 2000s. He was on scholarship as a defensive end for Central Michigan University, he was working toward a degree, and possibly playing at the next level.  But that all came crashing down following a debilitating back injury and becoming hooked on opioids to compensate for the pain. Mental health issues and even suicide considerations sent him into a tailspin. The JPS graduate spent nearly 45 minutes explaining to students, college representatives, and community members how he spun himself out of the situation with help from health professionals and his family. Stinson was the keynote speaker at the Uniting for Hope and Healing Mental Health Forum held Monday at Jackson College. The event was sponsored by the college’s Multicultural Affairs Department in Bert Walker Hall.  A panel discussion was led by college representatives including Chief Clinical Officer of Family Services & Children’s Aid Sarah Sabin; health and fitness Coach Nacoya…

MC Earns Regional Basketball Come-From-Behind Win

By Jeff Steers JTV Sports (March 13, 2023 10:43 PM) Five days ago, Michigan Center High School basketball player Hunter Clemons was in a boot and not sure what the rest of the 2022-2023 season would look like. Monday Clemons and the Cardinals gave Leslie the boot from the Michigan High School Athletic Association basketball playoffs. Clemons and Adrien Putnam scored 13 points apiece in the second half for a 67-61 win over Leslie in the Division 3 regional tournament at Hanover-Horton High School. Michigan Center (18-7) advances to the regional final Wednesday against Laingsburg (24-0) at 7 p.m. at HHHS.  A sloppy second half left the Cardinals in a 34-26 deficit at halftime against the Blackhawks. “We just had to slow it down a bit and be more patient,” MCHS Coach Travis Gaddy said. “We switched to a man and then diamond press to get the rhythm in our favor.” It worked as the Cardinals pulled within one point at 45-44 at the end of the third quarter. Clemons scored eight points in the quarter for Michigan Center. Putnam hit two shots to begin the fourth quarter as Michigan Center pulled ahead. But Leslie wasn’t finished, taking a five-point…
