Harper Creek Girls Swimming
A foreign-exchange student from Switzerland, Harper Creek’s Tabita Prin qualified for the MHSAA State Swimming Finals by reaching the state cut time in the 200 IM, 100 butterfly and both the 400 free relay and the medley relay while competing in the season-ending league meet, helping the Beavers to a third place overall finish.
St. Philip Volleyball
Junior Baily Francher helped St. Philip reach the state quarterfinals for the first time since 2017 as the Tigers defeated Athens in a Division 4 regional final. Fancher was steady at libero and led the Tiger defense with 24 digs.
A senior, Cody Hultink helped Pennfield get to to the third round of the playoffs for the first time since 2013. Hultink kept the Panthers in the game after coming up with a 90-yard touchdown reception before Pennfield lost to Williamston, 28-12, in a Division 4 district championship clash.
Harper Creek Volleyball
After Harper Creek was under .500 for the season, senior Kylee Crandall was the emotional leader for the Beavers as they made an unlikely run to the regional finals. Crandall had 20 digs and two aces in a regional semifinal win over South Haven and added 31 digs in the Division 2 regional final loss to Edwardsburg.
