Forgive Kosmo for being so late with this but the first night of the girls basketball and hockey playoffs were so riveting that the K-Man needed about 15 hours of sleep to recover. But better late than never Kosmo wants to hand out his 3 stars for Monday's prep action. Before he does, Kosmo needs to once again gloat. He warned everyone how "Someone is Goin'Down!" and it happened with Waterford Mott's upset of Kettering. Never underestimate the power of the slogan. No on to the stars.
Lauren Hung, Waterford Mott girls basketball - This girls sure has gotten even better this year, hasn't she? She scored 21 points in that 41-38 upset of Kettering, which best Mott three times during the regular season. But as they say, Mott won the game that mattered most.
Grant Luzynski, Walled Lake Northern hockey - So how about a 5OT game to start the state tournament, huh? Northern managed to prevail 4-3 thanks in big part to Luzynski, who made 55 saves, 31 of which came in the overtimes. He also stopped a penalty shot. Two words: Brick wall.
Mallory Slicker, Walled Lake Central skiing - This may be the first time Kosmo has ever given recognition to a skier, but Slicker is deserving of being the first. Despite competing with a torn MCL and being in pain, Slicker won the giant slalom state title at the Division 1 finals and took fourth in the slalom. If only Kosmo had that sort of courage and athleticism on a good knee
