Posted May 13, 2019 — 1:45 p.m. 

From The Detroit Free Press:

Who is your favorite local high school sports team? Maybe it’s a team that finally beat their cross-town rivals after years of coming up short. Or a team that overcame a huge obstacle (on or off the field) and came together to support one another. The Detroit Free Press wants to hear your favorite team’s story!

The voting period begins April 30, 2019 at 11:59 am EST and runs through May 14, 2019 at 11:59 am EST. You may vote once per day.

The three teams that garner the highest number of votes will be contacted via email by May 17, 2019 and invited to attend the Detroit Free Press Sports Awards presented by Detroit Area Honda Dealers. They will walk the red carpet, find out if they won, and celebrate with other local nominees. The winning team will be announced live and called to the stage to receive their trophy.

The Huron boys won 7 out of 10 tournaments this year including the State Division 2 Title. They were also just honored at the State Capital.

“I was honored to host the champions of Huron’s bowling team here at the Capitol this week as they celebrated their state championship,” Camilleri said.

“It is always terrific to see the youth in our community achieve success; and in the world of high school sports, there is nothing greater than bringing home a state championship for your school.

A basketball court will be built soon at Lajko Park, which is on Huron River Drive just north of Township Hall.

The court will be built using funds from the Wayne County Parks millage, which the township receives funding from every year, according to Treasurer Colleen Lazere.

Lazere said during the March 13 board meeting that two years worth of funding was available from the millage and could be used for building the court.

The board approved a bid from Al’s Asphalt Paving Co. of Taylor to build the court for $35,830, which includes a 10% contingency.

The court will be built on a corner of the current parking lot at the park, and will only take up about ten spaces, according to the construction plans.
