A lot attention for high school sports is rightfully placed on football and basketball season, which is obvious because those are the two big revenue sports and get the most acclaim.
But while the fall and winter seasons have the two big sports, it can't offer the annual gem that the spring season will offer once again on Saturday.
It's become what we at the Oakland Press call "Super Preps Saturday."
There is simply no day on the calendar like it.
On no other day are so many athletes competing in high pressure playoff events. You have state finals for track and tennis teams around the state, and each sport has four divisions.
There is also district semifinals and finals for baseball and softball teams, as well as district final for girls soccer teams.
Add lacrosse regional finals into the mix and you're looking what arguably is the most important day of the entire preps season, no matter what time of year it is and no matter if the big sports won't be a part of it.
- Kosmo just read on Twitter that the baseball/softball district at Lake Orion has been postponed to Monday because of weather. That could serve to be a big break for the Lake Orion baseball team, which will now have ace pitchers Nick Deeg and Brad Schaenzer on full rest instead of just two days rest like they would've been had the district been held on Friday. We'll see how if that advantage plays out or not.
