'The Vest' leads Valley Christian

No East Valley school enjoyed more success in hoops than Chandler’s Division III school. A half-dozen seniors entered the boys program with much fanfare and expectations, but the Trojans kept knocking on the door without being let in. This time, however, Greg Haagsma’s team busted through. A year in which the local standard for the sweater vest is now the 11th basketball coach in Arizona to surpass 500 career wins (all at Valley Christian) was capped with the school’s first state title since 2007 thanks to Cory Kasperson’s career night of 24 points, along with Zach Wolf, TJ Widner and the younger Haagsma (Brandon). It helped smooth out what was a frustrating end to an otherwise brilliant, previously-undefeated season by Scott Timmer’s girls team. The Trojans won in blowout and close fashion, against better competition, with offense and defense to the tune of 33-0, but the formulas which worked for three consecutive months randomly disappeared on the girls against Fountain Hills in the championship game in the only loss this season.
