Freshmen vs. S.C. East

By Tia Nath The freshman boys took a pair of games from Sioux City, Iowa, East Saturday in the WHS gym. The A Team won 60-51, while the B Team won 37-35. “It was a fun game,” Carson Herbert said. “I’m glad we came out on top.”

By Jeff Seidel Detroit Free Press (MCT) SOCHI, Russia — Charlie White and Meryl Davis stood by the edge of the rink. They had spent a lifetime, training for this moment. “First place and Olympic champions,” a woman said, over the public address system. “Representing the United States of America… Meryl Davis and Charlie White.” Davis, 27, of West Bloomfield, Mich., and White, 26, of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., won the ice dance with 195.52 points on Monday night, breaking their own world record and becoming the first U.S. team to win the event. They skated across the ice, hand in hand, and waved to the crowd during the flower ceremony. They skated to the podium and stopped by their old rivals — Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, the Canadians with whom they train at Arctic Edge in Canton, Mich., under the same coach, Marina Zoueva. Davis hugged Virtue, and White gave a big, muscular guy hug to Moir. The rivalry was already starting to fade. Virtue and Moir, who had won the gold medal in Vancouver in 2010, won the silver medal with 190.99 points.
