Support your teams!

There are several sports teams performing incredibly well this year, and have continued to perform well in various post-season competitions.

Milan and Saline girls' varsity basketball will both be competing for a District Championship tonight. Milan plays Chelsea at Onsted High School at 7 p.m. for the Class B title, while Saline is set to play Bedford at Monroe High School at 6 p.m. for the Class A title.

Although Lincoln-Milan fell to Ann Arbor Huron in the first round of the hockey pre-regionals, Saline is still in the running. The Hornets have defeated Woodhaven and Bedford in the pre-regional games, and will play the winner of the Southgate Anderson/Trenton game on Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Southgate Civic Center for the regional championship.

For Saline gymnastics and bowling, teams will be competing in regional and state tournaments Saturday. Saline sent Kate Baker and Cheyenne Long to states after the two girls qualified individually.

One particularly exciting even on the horizon is the Division 1 state tournament in boys' swim and dive, in which the Saline boys are sending their largest group ever and are going in ranked No. 2 in the state. Milan's team has also rounded out a respectable group and will compete the same weekend. Saline will be at Eastern Michigan University March 13 and 14 throughout the day. Saline divers are competing this weekend in the regional, in hopes to qualify for states. They are Hank Remenapp and Joel Chambers.

Lots of things to be proud of from this year's winter sports athletes. If you're looking for a way to support a team, this weekend's competitions are prime opportunities!
