High School Ice Hockey: Jackson United in SEC

(Photo: JTV File Photo) By, Gabriel Schray | JTV Sports | December 5th, 2018 Jackson, Michigan -- Just a year ago, Jackson United had one of the better seasons in program history. The team finished 21-2-0. The Vikings and Head Coach Andy Sinkovitz will be looking to build off of that success here this season. Coach Sinkovitz says that the team has a shorter bench than in past years, which allows for more ice time for Viking players. “This leaves it up to the players to seize the playing time,” said Sinkovitz. “It’s still early, but a couple of the guys are already starting to develop into key players.” After five games the team stands at 2-5. A power outage occurred just before the team played Kalamazoo Portage Northern. A transformer nearby the rink went out and killed the power to the Oshtemo area around the ice arena- so the game was cancelled. The Vikings have been potent on offense, scoring 21 goals in seven games (three goals per game on average). JU has struggled defensively however, allowing 28 goals over the same span (four goals per game on average). It’s a narrow enough margin that the program could easily…

Lumen Christi Vs. Montrose

Lumen Christi, Montrose to Showdown

(Photo by, Ryan Kerwin) By, Gabriel Schray | JTV Sports | November 6th, 2018 Jackson, Michigan -- After a convincing 33-0 win, The Titans of Lumen Christi continue their march towards a state championship this Saturday, against Montrose. The Titans are hoping to record a perfect season and a three-peat. Lumen Christi running back Nick Thomas finished one of the great performances in Jackson area football history last Friday night, as he found his way into the endzone five separate times. Just below freezing temperatures didn’t hamper the running back, as he propelled 11-0 Lumen Christi to its’ third straight regional championship. Now they’ll face off with powerhouse Montrose in the State Semifinal on Saturday. The Titan’s defense recorded its’ third shutout this season, in a five touchdown win over the Blissfield Royals. Thomas was responsible for every score in the 33-0 win. Blissfield finishes its’ season 7-5, after a second district championship in as many seasons. The Royals were not a favorite to win in the first, or second round of the playoffs, and have backed in twice in a row. The Royals must relish the underdog role, because they have certainly lived up to it. The Titans and…

They stand at 5-1 on the season, and are looking to pick up another win tonight against Alma and the Scotts. A win would mean a five game win streak for the Cougars. And a win against and MIAA school would also be an increase in momentum for SAU. The Cougars and Scotts haven’t played since 2014, when the Cougars won their first in what is now a 1-2 all-time series. The 2014 contest was a tight game, a final of 63-61, and it will likely be close again tonight. They lost by margins of five and two in their first two appearances, so tight endings have become a theme for the two. A win tonight would move the series to .500 as well. On Saturday, Paul Marandet became the 45th player in Spring Arbor University history to reach 1,000 career points in a 78-67 win over Ohio Christian University to close out the Trent Allen Memorial Classic. Marandet entered the contest needing just 11 points to…

The contest will begin at 7pm and will be played on the campus of Jackson College. Last season the Jets were the best they have been in quite some clip. The Jets went 19-11 on the year, a 63% win percentage under first year Head Coach Marshawn Norris. Norris is now entering his second season as the Head Coach at Jackson, and will be looking to improve the program even further. He expanded his thoughts on last year and more in the November 7th edition of Inside the Locker Room. They ended last season on a loss, and will look to open up a new winning streak tonight at home. The Jets were 12-2 when at home last season. Norris discussed the importance of his returners (Osebor, Pierce and Sietsema). All three were Freshman last season. Osebor was the most efficient of the bunch, pitching in four points per game and shooting 58% from the floor. The Jets will also benefit from transfer Connor Pelham. Pelham played…
