Groves softball making a name for itself

Rather quietly, one of the more improved softball teams in the area this year has been Birmingham Groves, which is unbeaten in the OAA Blue Division as the regular season winds down.
Groves certainly hasn't been a traditional power over the years, but it could be one its way to becoming one over the next couple of years with a new coach, Ryan Minarik, and some talented underclassmen on the roster.
One of those talented youngsters is sophomore ace pitcher Keely Nowland, who has dominated the league this year. No. 2 pitcher Dayna Kozlowski has also gotten it done.
The Falcons also are capable of scoring lots of runs for Minarik, who coached the last 15 seasons at Ypsilanti.
In terms of the state tournament, the district at Birmingham Seaholm figured to be a battle between West Bloomfield and host Seaholm, but with the regular season Groves has had, the Falcons could very well be in the hunt for a district title as well.
- This weekend already marks the start of playoff time for spring sports, as tennis regionals and track regionals around the state will take place. Next week, it'll be boys golf districts, while baseball, softball and soccer districts start after Memorial Day. It's definitely getting into the good time now.

It's hard to judge how improved they are when the OAA Blue is a very weak division in terms of talent and ability. By virtue of their undefeated finish this year, Groves better be lobbying to move up into the OAA White next year.
