Elk Rapids Tops Harbor Springs for Conference Title in Girls Hoops

ELK RAPIDS — Elk Rapids secured the outright Lake Michigan Conference title with a 56-49 victory over Harbor Springs on Thursday in girls basketball. Both teams entered the matchup with one conference loss, with the Elks playing in their final conference game.

Elk Rapids held just a 29-27 lead at halftime, but started the second half on a 12-0 run and outscored the Rams, 16-3, to hold a 45-30 edge entering the fourth. Harbor Springs started to come back, but didn’t have enough time to pull it off.

The Rams have one more conference game on Monday at Charlevoix before postseason play begins. Elk Rapids has two more non-conference games, playing at Frankfort on Tuesday and at Lake Leelanau St. Mary next Friday.
