Tonight they face Grand Rapids Christian, who are ranked 5th in Division III.

“They have a team that is very deep,” Coach Eric Talsma said.

They will finish the season with four tough dual meets in a row, including tonight, Byron Center, Holland Christian, and the combined Zeeland team. Their main focus is to finish strong and do well in the conference and state meets.
