Fennville's Wes Leonard Earns All-State Honors

FENNVILLE, Mich. - Fennville has one more reason to be proud of Wes Leonard.

Leonard was voted to The Associated Press Class C All-State basketball team shortly after his death. He made a game-winning shot, giving the Blackhawks a 20-0 record in the regular season on March 3, then collapsed seconds later. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The Ottawa County medical examiner determined Leonard died of cardiac arrest due to an enlarged heart.


The 6-foot-2 junior averaged about 20 points, nine rebounds and three assists, playing on the perimeter to help his team, following two years of primarily being a post player.

Fennville's Ryan Klingler shared coach of the year honors with Schoolcraft's Randy Small.
