CARMICHAEL — Ripon Christian took third place overall Saturday at the Victory Christian Tournament with a 61-44 win over Highlands.
Tyler Goslinga led the way with 24 points, and Arie De Dulk scored 15 more, including a trio of 3-pointers during a pivotal second-quarter stretch in which RC clawed back into it and took the lead for good.
David Vander Schaaf added nine for the Knights (6-4 overall).
“We were down 18-12 after one,” RC head coach Ron Vander Molen said. “But we outscored them 22-8 in the second quarter.
“Arie’s outside shooting gave us a boost, and our trapping defense caused a number of turnovers.
“We had a lot of good passing tonight, and we were able to break their press.”
Both Goslinga and Den Dulk were named to the All Tournament team.
RC hosts Linden Jan. 2.

Ripon Christian 57, Big Valley Christian 16
Kelsey Tillema turned in another big performance, this time with 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead RC past Big Valley.
Kayla Evans dominated with 11 points, four steals and five assists, and Raeline Witt handled the glass with ease, hauling in 12 boards.
Kathryn Van Groningen turned in six points, three assists and played a stifling brand of defense.
