Best in Your Area: Southwest Shore

Warren Dunes

One of my personal favorite teams resides in this area, the Bridgman Bees. The girls there took a love for the speed ratings, perhaps fueled by their rise to the #1 ranking in Division 4 last year. They were (and still are) the little engine that could, their tiny team has defeated the best in Berrien County for a few years now, conquering schools with much larger enrollments. They move up to Division 3 in 2020, but I believe they’re up to the task.

Included are schools west of Kalamazoo, south of South Haven, and (I’m jealous) in close proximity to Lake Michigan:
