Lakeshore standout Wiggins couldn't ask for better senior year


One year ago, Lakeshore made it all the way to the boys basketball Class B state finals.

The Lancers lost four starters from last year's squad, yet--here they are--a perfect 22-0 and a win away from a regional championship.

"You know a lot of people didn't think we'd come back this year because we lost a lot of players last year but nothing feels better than proving doubters wrong," senior Harold Wiggins explains.

Wiggins is one of the players that has stepped up his game to a whole new level to make this year's run possible.

"Last year, he sacrificed himself," Lakeshore head coach Sean Schroeder explains. "He was good enough to start but he came off the bench as a junior. This year, we've asked him to do more and he's just done a lot of things. He steps up in big games. We're going to miss him next year that's for sure."

Wiggins is one of 11 senior on Lakeshore's 14 man roster and he's loved by everyone.

"He's huge for our team," fellow senior Michael Welch. "He's also a great leader on the court vocally and just the way he plays."

Harold's had remarkable success at Lakeshore and not just in basketball. He also helped lead the football team to a perfect 11-0 regular season.

"My senior year couldn''t be any much better than this right now," Wiggins says. "Undefeated football season--district champions. Undefeated basketball season. I can't complain right now. I'm pretty happy."

But he's not content. He wants his senior season to continue on.

"Oh its been a blast, hopefully we can keep it going," Wiggins says with a smile.

The next shot comes Wednesday night in the regional finals. Lakeshore will face South Haven at 7pm at Marshall with a spot in the state quarterfinals on the line.
