METRO DETROIT — And then there were three.

After a 2013-14 school year that featured thousands of games, even more athletes and the crowing of champions in sports including gymnastics, football, swimming and hockey, the final three are set to put a wrap on the schedule this weekend.

The spring of 2014 in the MHSAA is down to baseball, softball and soccer.

“The end of a school year, and all of its celebrations and excitement wouldn’t be complete without crowing our last athletic champions,” said John Johnson, the MHSAA communications director. “It brings the circle to a close on one year, and we’re already looking forward to preparations for the 2014-15 school year.”

Here’s a quick look at what’s left.

The baseball semifinals and finals will be played at McLane Stadium on the campus of Michigan State University.

Semifinals begin June 12. Division 2 games take place at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
