I knew Sandusky was going to be the team to beat in the GTCE Division in the 2022-23 campaign. Losing 5 players off the team to Graduation a year ago. You had 3 players that played a lot for Al DeMott in the last 2 to 3 on Varsity. 2 newcomers stepped right on in to help out the Varsity right away. 3 hardware trophies they got in store now this season. Not a deep bench they had out there. Did very well for what they had in store. One of his best Coaching jobs of his career. Milestone season to remember for a long time coming.
January 6th he broke Frank Orlando’s record for most wins in MHSAA History in Girls Basketball. 798 career wins. Did that one against the USA Patriots at USA HS.
January 17th get his 800th career win against the Ubly Bearcats at Ubly HS. Only Head Coach in MHSAA Girls Basketball History to get over 800 career wins.
January 28th party for Al DeMott at the Sandusky HS Cafeteria. Milestones he reached out there.
February 21st win the outright GTCE Division Crown against the Brown City Green Devils at Brown City HS.
March 4th Back 2 Back Division 3 District Champions at Capac HS. Get a 49-25 win over the Memphis Yellowjackets.
Division 3 Regional Champions on March 9th at Sandusky HS. Split the season series at one apiece against the Cass City Red Hawks. 49-44 win. Do it in front of your home crowd on hand for this matchup. Win the Regional Championship Title for the 1st time since 1999.
Put up a really good fight on March 14th in the Division 3 Quarterfinals against the Madison Heights Bishop Foley Ventures at West Bloomfield HS. Lose 34-32.
Lots of good memories to bring back this season for the Sandusky Wolves Girls Basketball Team. Didn’t have the depth & height also too. Played with a lot of heart & determination. Nobody is to small or to tall to play Basketball. It is about love of this sport they liked out there while they were born to play this game. Hard working bunch of players on this roster. Not the best talent Al has ever had. Play for everyone else in this small community we live in now. Special Milestone Season to remember now in Sandusky. Good mindset of good ideas. Remember that one forever now & never forget that moment we live in now in this generations. 43 years on counting for Head Coach Al DeMott in Sandusky…….
