“To be hopeful means to be uncertain about the future, to be tender toward possibilities, to be dedicated to change all the way down to the bottom of your heart.”

CONGRATULATIONS, HURON MEN'S BASKETBALL!
The River Rats rode an early 16-0 run to a 64-39 victory over Livonia Stevenson on Thursday, April 1, at Northville HS to clinch the program’s first Division 1 Regional Title since 2010. This alone is a tremendous feat by the Rats and Coach Samaha, but it didn’t end there.
The River Rats went on to defeat River Rouge in a playoff game on April 6, remaining undefeated and with 19 wins. On Thursday, April 8, the Rats continued their streak, beating Warren’s La Salle Collegiate in the State Semi Final game that was held at the Breslin Center on Michigan State’s Campus in East Lansing. That’s a 20-0 record for the season, and the first Division 1 Regional Title in 11 years.
Huron will play for the State Championship tomorrow, April 10, at 12:30 p.m. against the Grand Blanc Bobcats. The championship game will be held at the Breslin Center. Go, Rats!
