Thursday's Local Sports Coverage (6/13)

Posted: Updated:

A big day of previews for us on Thursday as four local schools finish off their preparations for tomorrow's state semifinals in baseball and softball.  Northern Michigan will have four teams competing tomorrow, two of them against each other, so we are guaranteed to have at least one school advancing to Saturday's title game.

We hear from Chip Hills and Beal City head coaches in advance of tomorrow's games. All of tomorrow's action will take place in Battle Creek.

The matchups are as followed:

Div. 2 Baseball Semifinal:
Chippewa Hills vs. Grand Rapids Christian -- 1 p.m.

Div. 4 Baseball Semifinal:
Beal City vs. Glen Lake -- 5 p.m.

Div. 4 Softball Semifinal:
Rogers City vs. Kalamazoo Christian -- 1 p.m.

We also had our friends from the Lake Michigan Football Report in house to discuss next Sunday's basketball skills combine.  It's very similar to lst month's football combine.  Ira Childress explains why prep hoopsters should attend.
