Hail to the champions

Another championship weekend for high school sports and more hardware brought home by Oakland County teams and athletes. What else would you expect? First came boys golf, where two veteran teams that have been so close to winning state championships in the past finally broke through. Great job by Brother Rice seniors Sean Friel and Lucas Belanger for ending their fine careers on top when the Warriors rallied on Saturday's second day to win the Division 1 state tournament by one stroke. It's been a long time coming for those seniors and head coach Dan Bumpus, so it was a nice sight. Ditto for Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood, which easily won the Division 2 state title after coming so close last season when it was runner-up. Just like Friel and Belanger for Brother Rice, Cranbrook's Griffin Smith and Michael Ray figured to win a state title by the time their careers were over, and they did just that. For what Kosmo thinks is the 23rd time in 24 years, there was at least one state champion from the area in girls soccer as Birmingham Marian once again won the Division 2 state championship. BTW, listen to Kosmo everyone. He said the Mustangs would win 3-1, and the final score was, drum roll please, 3-1. Koz would take a bow, but his paper bag would fall of his head. Finally, Madison Heights Bishop Foley surprised, oh, nobody, when it won the Division 3 state baseball title Saturday evening in Battle Creek. 41-3 after going 39-3 last year? That's unheard of in baseball and just a testament to how dominant the Ventures have been the last couple of years.
