Central Montcalm’s Miller qualifies for state finals

Central Montcalm senior Ava Miller is the only area golfer to continue her season beyond regionals. On Thursday, playing at the Grayling Country Club, Miller fired a 90 to qualify for the Division 4 state championship at Michigan State’s Forest Akers East Oct. 16-17. The Hornets shot 443, but did not qualify as a team, which meant Miller did so as an individual. The top three teams and top three players from non qualifying teams advance to the state finals.

Greenville falls in 5-setter to FH Northern

Playing from the east side of Greenville’s volleyball court is a good thing. Unfortunately, the host Yellow Jackets only played two of five games from the east side. That meant the Forest Hills Northern Huskies were on the winning side of an extremely competitive five-set match on Tuesday.
