More evidence on power of girls soccer

The state girls soccer semifinals will take place on Wednesday, and once again, there can't be more blatant evidence that the most successful high school sport within Oakland County is girls soccer.
The area has produced a state champion 22 out of the last 23 years (or is it 23 of the last 24? Whatever.), and there are still five teams left playing in the semifinals.
All this comes one year after county teams won state championships in three of the four divisions.
There's a good chance that Saturday will feature the second all-county state Division 1 final in the past five years, as Novi and Troy could be on a collision course to meet for all the marbles.
Madison Heights Lamphere is an underdog in its Division 2 semifinal against Livonia Ladywood, but the Rams have bucked the odds all season in getting this far.
Traditional powers Birmingham Detroit Country Day in Division 3 and Madison Heights Bishop Foley in Division 4 are also alive, so there's a good chance those teams will look to add to their collection of state title trophies on Saturday.
Again, if there's a more successful high school sport within the county than girls soccer, Kosmo doesn't know what it is.
