LOCAL SPORTS ROUNDUP: ACC men, women lose, AHS swim competes


Alpena Community College women’s basketball lost to Mid-Michigan College, 91-24, on Saturday.

Makayla Kamyszek led the team with eight points.

“We held our Sophomore day against Mid-Michigan, who is arguably the best team in our conference, which provided an uphill battle from the tip,” said coach Brandon Humphrey. “Our six Sophomores, who all started the game, have helped to lay the foundation of our program the way we envisioned it. We talked about that at the conclusion of the game and how proud of them we were. Despite the score, I thought we played a much better second half and will look to build off of it as we head into a crucial matchup against a tough Delta team on Tuesday.”
