Kings Win District Opener

The Copper Kings faced several unusual challenges in its Class C district opener Monday.  First, an Ironwood team they’d not seen since the Red Devils left the WestPAC after the 2009-10 season; second, a 1-3-1 zone defense; third, a strong lefthanded frontcourt player for the Kings’ tall forwards to deal with.  It took them about

Kings Rout Lakes

The Copper Kings wore out their undermanned neighbors, holding them to just eight points in the last 24 minutes. “We put a lot of pressure on their guards and were able to wear them down. They played a pretty inspired first quarter, but we were able to wear on them,” Calumet coach Don Hill said.

Copper Kings Ground Jets

CALUMET – Both the Calumet and Jeffers girls’ basketball teams have big weeks ahead and after Thursday’s non-league game, both have something to be pleased about.  Calumet, primarily on the strength of five first-quarter threes, took the contest 66-49 to move to 8-1 on the season, but the much-smaller Jets played the Copper Kings, ranked

Kings Stay Unbeaten

Balanced play overcame cold shooting for the No. 2-ranked Copper Kings in a non-league win at Baraga.  The Lady Vikings threw an unfamiliar zone defense at their visitors. Calumet responded with an unspectacular 22-for-75 (29.3 percent) shooting performance. “Getting shots was not a problem, but making shots was a little bit more of a task

Copper Kings Ground Jets

On a night when her team wasn’t firing on all cylinders, Calumet High sophomore guard Clara Loukus had no trouble finding the bullseye.  The 5-foot-1 Loukus gunned in a game-high 25 points and tied a school record with seven three-point baskets as the unbeaten Copper Kings scored a 60-29 win over the Jeffers Jets. “She
