Three local teams that battled their way through district tournaments saw their seasons end in 2013 Michigan High School Athletic Association regional rounds.
The St. Clair Shores South Lake and Lake Shore boys golf teams fell in a 2013 MHSAA Division 2 golf regional that took place June 6 at the Fieldstone Golf Club in Auburn Hills.
The Cavaliers and Shorians tallied a 369 and 383, respectively. Senior Bryan Cloud paced South Lake with an 87. Senior Mike Bartl led Lake Shore with an 83.
Beverly Hills Detroit Country Day won the regional with a 318. Pontiac Notre Dame Prep (324) and Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook (329) placed second and third, respectively, to qualify for the D-2 state finals, which took place after press time.
The Cavs entered the postseason having won the Macomb Area Conference Blue Division with an 8-2 record. Lake Shore finished one match behind South Lake in MAC Blue play at 7-3.
Lakeview softball falls in regional semifinal
The St. Clair Shores Lakeview softball team saw its season end in a 4-2 loss to Garden City in 2013 MHSAA D-1 regional semifinal that took place June 8 at Grosse Pointe South.
The Huskies end the season at 9-13.
“They played really hard. We played a good game,” Lakeview coach Becky Quinn said. “(Garden City) just got a couple of hits when they needed them, and we weren’t able to do that.
“But we played solid offense and solid defense. We just couldn’t get the hits we needed to win.”
Lakeview advanced to the regional round by winning its third district title in four years.
Quinn added that the majority of the team should return next season. She said she’s looking forward to seeing how the team grows next season.
“We have some players who should be able to step into bigger roles, and hopefully build on the success we had this season,” Quinn said. “I’m excited to see what next season brings.”
