County Class A semifinal hex continues

Throughout the past 10 years, Kosmo has been filled with anticipation once the boys basketball semifinals arrive, because there's usually been an Oakland County team capable of fulfilling their dreams of winning a state championship.
Then just as fast, there's been a big letdown once the Class A semifinals end. With Southfield falling just short against Kalamazoo Central in Friday's semifinals, Oakland County is now on a six-game losing streak as it relates area Class A teams in the semifinals.
Since Pontiac Northern won it all in Class A in 2002, West Bloomfield in 2003, Pontiac Northern in 2004, Orchard Lake St. Mary's in 2006, Clarkston in 2009 and Southfield the last two years have been unable to advance to the Class A state championship game.
Not that these teams haven't tried, but it's an unfortunate streak that hopefully will end next year.
Kosmo sure is sick of tuning in to the Class A state championship game and seeing non-Oakland County teams competing for the ultimate prize, as former analyst Bill Walton always loved to say.
— Mother Nature sure has wreaked havoc on the spring sports season. With the ice storm and below freezing temperatures last week, numerous soccer and lacrosse games had to be postponed, and those teams usually play in just about any type of weather.
