A High School Basketball Star Dies On the Court

Wes’s teammates and the fans rushed the court to celebrate, and Wes was right there, celebrating with them.  Then, he collapsed.

Paramedics tried CPR but it didn’t work, and Wes was pronounced dead.  He died from cardiac arrest due to an enlarged heart.

This is the second tragedy in 14 months for Fennville.  Back in January of 2010, a 14-year-old wrestler from Fennville died from a seizure after a match.

Fennville is playing in its first playoff game as part of the Michigan state tournament tonight at 7:00 P.M.  Hundreds of people attended a memorial for Wes on Saturday.

Here’s a photo of Wes being lifted up by a teammate just moments before he collapsed:
