High school sports quick hits from Kosmo the all-knowing Oakland Press seer.

Regionals in name only

It's the regional round of the state wrestling tournament, both for teams and individuals, which obviously means it's time for teams to gas up their buses given some of the sites area teams have to drive to.
Oxford had to drive to Saginaw Heritage for its team regional on Wednesday, and then the 12 individuals who qualified for regionals will have to drive to East Kentwood for that individual regional on Saturday.
Birmingham Brother Rice had to travel to Roseville for its team regional on Wednesday, so Oxford wasn't the only one with a regional site about a million miles from its school.
Such a thing tends to happen lots of high school sports, which doesn't make sense in the bigger sports. Kosmo can understand in the sports where there aren't as many teams such as hockey, skiing, lacrosse or gymnastics, but for wrestling or soccer teams to have over 2-hour drives to regionals is simply bizarre.
