Best in Your Area: Northern Michigan

Northern Michigan is well-represented at the championship level, both individuals and teams. Hart, Hunter Jones, Traverse City, Aiden Harrand, Petoskey, Cambrie Smith, you name it. It’s an all-encompassing region (Northern Michigan Championships), that has very distinct areas. I’ve divided it into four areas (131, Lake Huron, Little Traverse Bay, Sleeping Bear) on separate pages and then the entire North shown here.

If regionals are a go this fall, I hope to make it up to Benzie. The four regions there are made up of many of these teams, and almost all will be among the fastest, tightest regions in their respective divisions. The families, leaders, and community support in the towns that dot our North are the driving force in this competitiveness.
