Morenci’s girls play Camden-Frontier in the regional tournament at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. In the other bracket, Southfield Washtenaw Christian takes on Allen Park Inter-City Baptist at 6 p.m. The finals will be played at 7 p.m. March 10. The tournament is at Wyandotte Mt. Carmel.
Morenci’s entry into the Class D tournament brings up schools I’ve never heard of before. Here are a few of the smaller schools that played this year: Eastern Washtenaw Multi Cultural Academy, Ann Arbor Rudolf Steiner, Ypsilanti Calvary Christian, Newport Lutheran South, Detroit Michigan Health Academy, Detroit Winans Academy, Novi Franklin Road Christian, Detroit Davis Aerospace, West Bloomfield Frankel Jewish Academy, Clarkston Everest Collegiate and Wyoming Potter’s House Christian.
I have heard of Camden, of course, and I remember that they beat us a few weeks ago by four points. Our only common opponent is Waldron. Camden won the game 57-45.
