Lumberjacks drop pair to K’Zoo Valley

KALAMAZOO-The Alpena Community College basketball teams didn’t have the best of luck on Friday during the first day of the East/West Classic.

The ACC women’s team lost its season-opener to Kalamazoo Valley 89-46. Whitney Frazier led the Lumberjacks with 17 points and 11 rebounds and Sarah Kolb added nine points.

“The first half was all nerves; it’s the season-opener and against a good opponent and the girls were nervous,” ACC coach Bobby Allen said. “In the second half the effort was there, they played patient and played smart.”

The ACC men’s team lost 92-54 to Kalamazoo Valley to fall to 0-2 on the year. Travon Howard led the Lumberjacks with 12 points and Eric Thompson and Scott Hicks each added 11.
