MACOMB — Macomb Dakota girls basketball captured its fourth district title in the last five years with a 54-49 victory over Port Huron Northern in a Class A district title contest March 1 at home.
Despite the close score, the Cougars were in control for the majority of the contest, in large part due to a 30-point performance by senior guard Olivia Savage.
"She took it to another level," said Dakota coach Phil McCune. "What a display. That's what seniors are supossed to do this time of year."
Prior to its win over the Huskies, Dakota defeated L'Anse Creuse North 65-47 in a district semifinal Feb. 27.
Next up for Dakota is a regional semifinal game, scheduled for 7 p.m. March 5 against the winner of Chippewa Valley and Sterling Heights at St. Clair Shores Lake Shore.
