PLYMOUTH – The accolades and pats on the back continue to pile up for coach Aaron Butcher and his Ancilla College men’s basketball program.


But, through it all, he’s continuing to remind his squad that although the present circumstances feel great, there’s still a lot to play for.


The latest headline came for the Chargers (22-1, 12-0 Michigan Community College Athletic Association) on Tuesday, Feb. 6, when they rose to the No. 1 ranking in the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association Division II poll after three weeks in the No. 2 spot. Losses by previous No. 1 Cuyahoga Community College and No. 3 Parkland Community College helped Ancilla ascend to the top spot.
