Ionia travelled to St. Johns for the last game of the season. The Bulldogs were trying to take the season sweep but fell short. It was a low scoring game but a hard fought game. The offense struggled throughout the game but the defense is what kept them in it. At halftime St. Johns was up 14-13. In the second half the teams traded baskets. Down by 3 with under a minute Ionia executed their play and Melayna Braman was able to hit a three to tie it. St. Johns came right back to take a two point lead with a layup. Ionia had a couple of chances to tie the score with several seconds left but time ran out. Leading scorers were Melayna Braman with 10 points, Kara Kramer-Lake with 6 points, Jenna Wohlscheid with 4, Hailey Fuentes and Rajalyaj Esquivel both with 2.
