All week, we've heard about the violence surrounding the death of Wilma Upsall, when someone broke into the Leiters Ford home where she was staying this past Tuesday afternoon and ended her life. Tonight, however, violence and crime had no place. Tonight was a night to remember, to share and to celebrate the life of Wilma Upsall who was so many things to so many people: She was a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother; she was also a sister, aunt, great-aunt and friend.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVille head coach Michael Edison didnâ€™t feel he said anything particularly inspiring at his teamâ€™s first time out.
The Lancers sure came out of the break like a team on fire, though.
Edison burned his teamâ€™s first time out at the 6:04 mark of the second quarter after a 4-0 quarter-opening mini run by visiting Westville cut LaVilleâ€™s lead to a single point, 15-14. When play resumed, the Lancers ran out the half on a 22-7 tear to take control of the game for good in an eventual 72-56 season-opening win over the visiting Blackhawks at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Friday night.
