All hail the champs

The 2010-11 high school sports season in the state of Michigan is officially over, but as the saying goes, area teams "Saved the best for last."
On the last weekend of the season, four area teams brought home state titles on what was championship Saturday for baseball, softball, girls soccer and boys golf.
In Battle Creek, Madison Heights Bishop Foley capped off one of the finest season a county baseball team has ever had, finishing 39-3 after beating Bridgman in the Division 3 state championship.
For the 23rd time in the last 24 years, at least one area girls soccer team won a state title, and in fact, there were two.
Novi on its millionth state championship in the last seven years (OK, it's only five, but it seems like a million with all the success the Wildcats have had) with a 1-0 win over fellow county power Troy.
Then finishing off one of the greatest days in the history of the Bishop Foley athletic program, the girls soccer team, hours after the baseball team raised the trophy in Battle Creek, won its state record 12th state title with a 2-1 win over Lansing Christian.
Then, the Auburn Hills Oakland Christian boys golf team won its first state championship in school history, proving why it was the No. 1 team in the state at the Division 4 tournament.
There's nothing like finishing a preps season on top, and thanks to these four, that's exactly what happened.
Kudos also go out to North Farmington junior Max Kollin and Pontiac Notre Dame Prep junior Aaron Knutson, who won individual state titles at the Division 1 and Division 3 state tournaments, respectively.
