Chargers step up without high-scoring Groenendijk

Even without one of their top scorers, Duncan Christian’s senior boys basketball team managed an 81-60 win over Victoria High School last Friday.

Doug Groenendijk took advantage of a tournament-free weekend to head out on a volleyball recruiting trip, but his teammates stepped up in his absence. Nick Kapteyn led the way with 25 points and 23 rebounds, Alan Park had 21 points, 13 rebounds and four assists, Jesse Van Wingerden had 16 points and seven steams, and Mike Brandsma had five points, seven boards and five assists.
