Heerema and their current Coach, Andy Sharp they have grown into what should
be a tough competitor for the class C crown. The squad has continued to
grow with the help of several highly dedicated players. They will be adding
a junior varsity squad in 2000 and hope to add middle school and girls
teams in the upcoming years.

The Calvin College has been around for quite a while and has become the
most consistently fairing college team in the region under the direction
of 6th year coach, Jason Heerema. With the help of road trips around the
midwest along with treks to Messiah College in Pennsylvania for the Holy
Wars the team has gained the attention of students from their community
and created quite a fan base. Just this past year they expanded their program
with the addition of a womens squad as they continue to grow in hopes of
becoming a Varsity Division III program in the near future. For the 2000
season they have an experienced group of Freshman joining the team which
should make them a tough team to beat.
