GRANDVILLE, Mich. (AP) - The co-captain of Grandville High School’s hockey team has died of an enlarged heart.

School officials say 17-year-old Ryan Fischer was found unresponsive at home Friday morning. Superintendent Ron Caniff tells The Grand Rapids Press (https://bit.ly/P9YL0p ) that Fischer had gone to bed with no unusual symptoms the night before.

His team was scheduled to play in the Division I state tournament semifinals Friday night against Detroit Catholic Central. His family and school officials decided to proceed with the game.
