GRAND BLANC – The Grand Blanc ski teams will be returning numerous key members to the roster this season. The Grand Blanc boys return both captains, Matt Otenbaker and Ben Gottlieb, as well as Max Benjamin and Garrett Shumaker. The Lady Bobcats will also bring back team captains in Mariah Foote and Gabby Pearce, along with Jen Dutko, Sarah Price, Lexi Jackson and Ellie Behm.

Grand Blanc boys graduated numerous skiers, including Graham Prokott, Matt Read and Mason Faculak. The girls lost only one skier to graduation, Sarah Morgan, who is now an assistant coach with the team.

Grand Blanc has also added newcomers in freshman Michael Oenbakers and sophomore Allison Morgan, who missed last season due to an injury.

“Our team has grown to 38 members combined on the boys’ and girls’ teams,” said Grand Blanc assistant coach Morgan. “We have a very strong team this year with a lot of potential for future growth and are very optimistic about our chances of success in the division.”

Grand Blanc was scheduled to open the season against Flint Powers on Wednesday and today at Mt. Holly following press deadlines. Grand Blanc will face Fenton on Wednesday and Thursday next week.
