— Other coaches may not like looking ahead, but Kosmo does, so that's why he's already looking forward to Monday's regional semifinal round of the boys basketball tournament. Barring a titanic upset, Oakland County power Clarkston and Macomb County power Romeo will hook up in a regional semifinal at Lake Orion. The winner should get out of that regional, but unfortunately would likely earn a date with defending state champ and No. 1-ranked Saginaw in the quarterfinals.
— Sad to say, but this past week was about as dark a week for Lake Orion athletics. Five days after the girls basketball team's season ended via a shocking upset by Waterford Kettering, both the boys hockey teams and the boys basketball teams were upset on Monday, seeing their seasons end in the process.
Oh well, the fine folks at Lake Orion can take solace in a couple of things. One, the wrestling team will compete in the state quarterfinals in Battle Creek on Friday. Second, Lake Orion's defending state champion baseball team officially begins practice on March 10, right around the corner.
