Lady Chiefs capitalize on big second half
WATERVLIET — A strong second half pulled White Pigeon’s girls’ basketball team to a 38-19 win over Holland Black River Thursday in the opening round of the Watervliet Holiday Tournament.

West poured in 12 points to go along with six rebounds, one block, one steal and two assists.
