Brutal schedule for St. Mary's

Orchard Lake St. Mary's will once again be one of the more talented teams in Oakland County and the state this season, one capable of repeating as state champions in Division 3. So why is Kosmo so worried about the Eaglets missing the state playoffs? Well, take a look at their schedule. St. Mary's typically plays one of the tougher schedules in the state each year, but this year's ledger borders on insanity. In addition to playing in arguably the state's toughest leagues, which means games against Brother Rice, De La Salle and Catholic Central, St. Mary's will have non-lague games at Muskegon and at home against defending Division 1 state champion Detroit Cass Tech. Wow. The good news for St. Mary's is that even finishing 5-4 should net it a playoff spot with the amount of points it'll receive. But Kosmo hopes the Eaglets can simply get to five wins. - Speaking of Cass Tech, why don't the Technicians just become an honorary member of the Catholic League this year? Not only does Cass Tech play St. Mary's on Sept. 21, but it'll also open the season against Brother Rice in the first week of the season. Give credit to Cass Tech for trying to back up its state championship last year by taking on a great schedule. Then again, with all the talent Cass Tech has, playing the best competition is a no-brainer.
