The Michigan High School Athletic Association's Softball State Tournemant started this weekend. The State is divided into 4 divisions based on student enrollment. Then each division has 4 or 5 teams in each district based solely on geography. Every high school team is eligible to participate.
The Divison 1, District 12 teams, consisted of Ann Arbor Pioneer, Ann Arbor Skyline, Ann Arbor Huron, Pinckney, and Dexter. All games were played at AA Pioneer. The bracket draw is random.
In the opening round played earlier this week, Skyline beat Pioneere 10-8. Then AA Huron beat Skyline 7-5 while Pickney beat Dexter 9-6. So the final game seeded AA Huron vs Pickney. Pickney came out on top 9-1.
In other action, my Port Huron High Big Reds lost to L'anse Cruse eliminating them from the tournament.
The Division 1 favorite is Mattawan now that the favorite, Portage Central, lost earlier in the day.
Division 2 favorite Stevensville Lakeshore (St Joseph area) won their district by beating St. Joseph 9-0.
Divsion 3 favorite Clinton (Adrian area) won their district by smoking Adrian Madison.
Divison 4 favorite Petersburg-Summerfield won their distict by handling Ottawa Lake Whiteford 7-0.
