BRONSON -- The Bronson High girls varsity hoops team is off to a great start this season, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out why.

Coach Greg Hamilton is blessed with talent plus girls who play smart ball.

Backing up the smart part are five players who are straight A honor students, making life a joy for Hamilton.

Juniors Christine Schroeder, Sarah Parkin, Samantha Cabrera and Kamize Johnson and her younger sister Rasheedah Johnson, a sophomore, have been a joy to coach.

"They come to practice ready to learn," Hamilton said. "There are no silly quarrels. They make everything better."

Their classroom work has even rubbed off on teammates,

"A couple girls were scoring in the 40s in algebra," coach said. "They helped them get up to the 80s."

Schroeder , a guard who comes off the bench, has a grade point average of 3.93. Her favorite subject is chemistry.

"I've been playing since I was 5 years old," said Schroeder, who lists film producer as a possible career. "I have a hoop at home. I also play volleyball and am a cheerleader."
